What is Activated Carbon?
Activated carbon is a carbon-based material that has been processed to maximise its adsorptive properties, yielding a superior adsorbent material. Activated carbon boasts an impressive pore structure that causes it to have a very high surface area on which to capture and hold materials, and can be produced from a number of carbon-rich organic materials, including:
- Coconut Shells
- And more…
Types of Activated Carbon
Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC)
Granular Activated Carbon (GAC)
Granular activated carbons generally range in particle sizes of 0.2 mm to 5 mm and can be used in both gas and liquid phase applications. GACs are popular because they offer clean handling and tend to last longer than PACs.
