I need help finding a replacement charcoal filter for my kitchen exhuast fan. The fan is mounted in the ceiling above my stove and I removed the obscenely dirty filter to get a replacement. I have taken it to several places, but nobody has ever seen a filter like this one. It is about 13" x 8 3/4" x 2". Because there was some green liquid oozing from some places, I suspect the casing (or frame) is made of copper or some copper-containing alloy. The whole filter unit fits into the fan duct in the ceiling and is held in place by a frame that screws into the ceiling. Our house was built in the early 1950s and is located in Madison, WI, in case that helps. It is likely the original fan unit (and probably filter, too).

I located a label near the fan, but it is mostly ripped off. I can barely read the markings, but I can see the it says "...er Fan" ("Power Fan"?) and was possibly made by "...in Manufacturing Company" (It may be "Marvin Manufacturing Company") and the only city listed that I can read is Newark NJ.

Has anyone ever seen a filter like this? Where might I find a replacement?

UPDATE:

I was able to scrape off some go from the side of the old filter and find some markings. The markings on one of the sides read as below:

FAR-AIR-FILTER
PAT #2286479
SERIAL #950
FARR COMPANY L A CALIF

on the left side of this text is a large "C1" and on the right the number "8".

I cannot find Farr Company online. Has their name changed or has someone bought them? Can anyone help me to find someone who might know where I can find a filter to replace this filter?
