Making Activated Carbon Even More Versatile

Activated Carbon is a very commonly used air and water filtration media. Activated Carbon is created through a process that takes a raw material such as coconut and heats it under extremely high temperatures until the raw material is burned down to carbon. Through this process, a large number of pores are created. These pores of the natural material allow for the adsorption of impurities from both water and air.

In addition to its ability to filter both water and air, Activated Carbon is also an appealing filtration media because of its composition. Activated Carbon is chemically stable and non-toxic. It can be safely used in a variety of industrial and manufacturing applications. The mechanical hardness of the activated carbon enhances its adsorption ability making it very effective in removing impurities from liquids and gas.

Traditionally activated carbon is bought in bulk in either granule or pellet form. The granules or pellets are used to fill filters or adsorbers for large-scale applications such as industrial wastewater treatment and industrial plant emissions. Companies can replace the granules or pellets to optimize effectiveness of the filtration and spent activated carbon is often safe enough to be disposed of in a landfill.

Air Filtration Applications of Activated Carbon

Pollutants in the air can be outputs of industrial manufacturing processes or can form naturally. Contaminants released into the air and created as a result of industrial processes are regulated by the Clean Air Act. Companies are responsible for having the necessary filtration systems to control pollution emitted into the air.

When Activated Carbon is incorporated into filtration systems at the right levels, it is extremely efficient in purifying the air from industrial processes. Activated Carbon is very porous and the large surface area allows the contaminants to be adsorbed into the activated carbon. Activated Carbon is also effective in removing odors from air. There are a variety of applications for Activated Carbon to include:

Industrial plant emissions
Ventilation and exhaust systems
Purification of process gases
Food packaging and storage
Gas purification
