Full Abstract:

Carbon filters for domestic water treatment are increasingly popular, but many water treatment professionals may not realize the impact carbon's 'mesh size' can have on a filter's performance. Mesh size, which indicates the range of particles sizes in a particular carbon product, is an important physical consideration. Other physical properties of activated carbon include its apparent density, which refers to its weight-to-volume ratio; and its abrasion resistance, which refers to its ability to withstand degradation during handling, backwashing and reactivation.
