Activated Carbon Bulk & Bags
Activated Carbon is a filtration media used to remove impurities from liquids and gases and for a variety of applications such as drinking water and industrial pollution control. Activated Carbon is charcoal that has been treated to enhance the adsorption process. The large internal surface area allows for the impurities to be adsorbed into the pores of the Activated Carbon.
Activated carbon can be used in air purification to remove vapors and odor from the air. For chemical applications, activated carbon can purify solutions by adsorbing impurities. Activated Carbon is broadly used across many environmental applications such as spill cleanup and ground water remediation. Coconut shell-based carbons are typically harder, more resistant to abrasion, and have a low impurity content. Coal based activated carbons have a high mechanical hardness and a complex porous structure which enhances its adsorption capabilities.
Activated Carbon is available in granular and pellet forms. Activated carbon in granular form diffuses quickly in adsorption of gases and vapors. They are also used treatment of water and deodorizing of air. Pellet form activated carbon is the fusion of powdered activated carbon with a binder. Because Activated Carbon pellets have a low dust content, they are commonly used for gas phase applications. Bulk quantities are offered for Activated Carbon with Coconut Base granules and Activated Carbon with Coal pellets.
