Definition Of Active Carbon
Activated carbon is charcoal that has been treated with oxygen to open up millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms.
With the use of some special manufacturing techniques you can reach highly porous charcoals that have surface areas of 300-2,000 m2/gr. These activated carbons are widely used to adsorb odorous or colored substances from gases or liquids.
Generally carbon is activated by a controlled oxidation process which results in high degree of porosity and over a broad range of pore sizes. The specific structure of carbon gives a very large surface area which allows the carbon to adsorb a wide range of compounds. They are processed with the help of steam and without any chemical.
Additives, therefore they are 100% eco-friendly, has no chemical or toxic emissions.
Types Of Active Carbon
1. Granular Activated Carbon (GAC)
Irregular shaped particles with sizes ranging from 0.2 to 5mm. This type is used in both liquid and gas phase applications.
2. Powder Activated Carbon (PAC)
Pulverized carbon with a size predominantly less than 0.18mm (US mesh 80). These are mainly used in liquid phase applications and for flue gas treatment.
