Activated Carbon

Product #305

Activated Carbon is a very active product with a high proportion of medium and large pores. It is recommended for the adsorption of large quantities of high molecular weight substances.

The use of granular Activated Carbon in wastewater treatment systems is a proven process for removal of organic compounds.

As a tertiary treatment method, carbon adsorption and regeneration have been used to process domestic wastewaters contaminated with industrial wastes of organic origin as well as biologically treated waste waters.

Activated Carbon, when contacted with water containing organic material, will remove these compounds selectively by a combination of adsorption of the less polar molecules, filtration of the larger particles, and partial deposition of colloidal material on the exterior surface.

The quantity of Activated Carbon required will depend upon the degree of contamination.
