Activation is carefully controlled to produce a significant volume of both low and high energy pores for effective adsorption of a broad range of high and low molecular weight organic contaminants. FILTRASORB 816 is also formulated to comply with all the applicable provisions of the AWWA Standard for Granular Activated Carbon (B604), the stringent extractable metals requirements of ANSI/NSF Standard 61, and the Food Chemicals Codex.
FILTRASORB 816 is used primarily to treat surface water sources for the production of drinking water. This carbon is a coarser mesh media and is generally used in deep bed filters where pressure drop may be a concern. FILTRASORB 816 functions as a dual purpose media providing both filtration and adsorption.
As a replacement for existing filter media, the conversion to FILTRASORB' 816 activated carbon imposes no major changes to a plant's normal filtration operations. If more contact time is required, the height of the backwash troughs can be increased. Calgon Carbon Corporation can also provide complete modular adsorption systems as an add-on treatment stage if required.

- Safety Message
Wet activated carbon preferentially removes oxygen from air. In closed or partially closed containers and vessels, oxygen depletion may reach hazardous levels. If workers are to enter a vessel containing carbon, appropriate sampling and work procedures for potentially low oxygen spaces should be followed including all applicable Federal and State requirements.
