Coconut shell-based activated carbon products are known for very large internal surface areas, high hardness and low dust making these coconut shell carbons particularly attractive for water and critical air applications as well as point-of-use water filters and respirators. In addition to granular forms, we have a variety of pelletized grades available for delivery to any destination worldwide.
Demand is typically high for this relatively low cost filter media for both gas and liquid applications. Carbon Activated stocks a large variety of granular and pelletized grades (3mm, 4mm & 5mm) in addition to powder carbon. We have excellent sourcing capabilities for a number of specialized coal based activated carbons available for direct shipment in container loads to worldwide customer destinations.
Wood-based activated carbon is being used in a number of new applications. It produces different performance characteristics in industrial applications typically catered to with coal or coconut products. Wood base activated carbon has a high surface area characterized by both mesopores and micropores and has excellent decolorizing properties owing to its signature porosimetry.
Catalytic carbon is a class of activated carbon used to remove chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from drinking water. It has all the adsorptive characteristics of conventional activated carbons, as well as the ability to promote chemical reactions.
Carbon Activated makes a variety of coconut shell-based, impregnated activated carbon, in standard and custom sizes, for applications where non-treated carbon may not be effective. Surface impregnation chemically modifies activated carbon through a fine distribution of chemicals and metal particles on the internal surfaces of its pores. This greatly enhances the carbon’s adsorptive capacity through a synergism between the chemicals and the...
