Drinking Water Purification
Activated carbon plays a vital role in the process of providing safe, wholesome drinking water. Whether the driver for treatment is aesthetic (taste and odour components such as methyl isoborneol and geosmin), regulatory (VOCs, TOC, Disinfection By-Product Precursors), or emerging (Pharmaceuticals, Cyanotoxins), Jacobi can supply the needed carbon for the service., AquaSorb™ grades for drinking water treatment include our 1000 series, 6000 series, and C series granular activated carbons (GAC), and our CB-MW Series (Americas region) or MP Series (Europe and Asia regions) powdered activated carbons (PAC).
Effluent Water Treatment
Effluent water is often difficult to characterise, with dissolved organic compounds (often referred to as COD) and traces of toxic materials disguising the real source of the pollutant. Granular or powdered AquaSorb™ grade carbons are a common technique for effluent treatment, typically following biological treatment techniques, flocculation, and mechanical filtration. Common grades include AquaSorb™ 80 or AquaSorb™ 90 (granular) or AquaSorb™ CP series or MP series (powdered). The carbon acts to adsorb residual COD and toxic materials prior to discharge. Jacobi can assist in assessment of the correct grade of carbon and preparation of testing and deployment of pilot equipment.
