Facts You Don’t Know About Activated Charcoal?

Nov 1,2022

Activated carbon (also known as activated carbon, activated carbon or activated carbon) is a very useful adsorbent. Due to its high surface area, pore structure (micro, meso, and macro), and high surface reactivity, activated carbon can be used for purification, dechlorination, deodorization, and decolorization of liquid and vapor applications.

Activated carbons come in different shapes and sizes depending on the application used.

Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) — Granular activated carbon has a larger particle size but a smaller external surface area than other types of activated carbon. GAC particles adsorb vapors and gases well and are often widely used in water treatment because they disperse quickly.

Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC) — Powdered activated carbon granules are made using ground or crushed carbon. Typically, powdered activated carbon granules are added directly to other process units such as rapid mixing tanks, raw water inlets and clarifiers. In most cases, these particles are a good choice for carbon block filters.

Extruded Activated Carbon (EAC) — Extruded activated carbon is made by mixing powdered anthracite or charcoal with a suitable binder. It is then extruded under high pressure to form a cylindrical or spherical shape. Due to characteristics such as low pressure drop, low dust content and good mechanical strength, extruded activated carbon is mainly used in gas phase applications. EAC is used in CTO filters to reduce chlorine, taste and odor.

Benefits Of Activated Carbon In Water Treatment

Remove Contaminants

As mentioned earlier, activated carbon attracts and retains pollutants. This adsorptive property enables it to effectively remove a large number of different types and sizes of contaminants from water.

Taste and Odor Control

When the right type of activated charcoal is used, the taste of water can be significantly improved. Odors can also be effectively controlled by using activated carbon.

Absorb Many Ingredients

Activated charcoal is popular in water purification because of its ability to absorb not just one or two components, but many. This makes it both effective and affordable to use, qualities that any water purification plant will be interested in because of its overhead and production quality.
