Model AX0 4x8 - Granular Activated Carbon

Filtracarb AX0 is a granular activated carbon manufactured from specially selected grades of coconut shells by a steam activation process. The material is manufactured under stringently controlled conditions to produce a porous adsorbent with a highly developed internal surface area.

Clean Flo Adsorption Systems

CPL Carbon Link offer a standard range of modular filters for use in both the liquid and vapour phases. The CLEAN-FLO modular adsorbers provide a solution to the control of VOC emissions to atmosphere and prevent the discharge of dissolved organics at levels over permitted consents


Filling Service

This work is generally undertaken using high power water jet eductors to pump a slurry of water and activated carbon into the adsorption system. This method offers the benefits of being simple to operate, minimising attrition products and assisting in commissioning procedures

Removal Service

This process is often considered both difficult and laborious involving the use of significant numbers of man hours for even the smallest filtration systems. CPL Carbon Link undertake this operation using high volume, air conveying equipment designed for the transportation of granular products. The system provides the facility for the transfer of spent adsorbent into a variety of bulk containers to assist in the easy removal from site.
