Calgon Carbon Corporation

Solutions for personal protection against vapors, gases, air particles & dust - Health and Safety

Our activated carbons provide personal defense solutions against vapors, gases, air particles, and dust. Proven Experience: Since 1942, Calgon Carbon has been helping the world breath more easily by providing the most technologically advanced activated carbons for personal and collective protection filters. Today, we supply high-quality impregnated carbon for military, industrial, and laboratory markets. As new needs for personal protection emerge, we will continue to develop new products and find innovative uses for existing ones.

Why Activated Carbon

Activated carbon provides an engineered surface on which to develop novel chemistries for neutralizing various contaminants. Depending upon the requirements of the application, activated carbons can be impregnated with a variety of metal complexes to remove a diverse range of contaminants. In the simplest terms, impregnated activated carbons do double duty. They first remove (adsorb) the contaminants from the air. The carbon then either holds the contaminants or reacts to render them harmless. This functionality for both physical and chemical interaction with contaminants makes impregnated activated carbons ideal for respirator and collective protection filter applications.

Superior Capabilities
In addition to our own line of products, Calgon Carbon can custom or toll manufacture specialty impregnated activated carbons to meet your requirements. Our production capabilities range from manufacturing the base-activated carbon, including tailoring porosity and particle size distribution, to ensuring the performance of the final product via in-house testing.

Calgon Carbon's range of products, experience, technical expertise, robust adsorption models and analysis capability allow us to develop the most effective and economically efficient solution for your application.
