Activated Carbon Filters

Activated carbon, is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Activated carbon is sometimes also called activated charcoal. Due to its high degree of microporosity, just one gram of activated carbon has a surface area in excess of 1,300 m2 (14,000 sq ft). An activation level sufficient for useful application of activated carbon may be attained solely from high surface area; however, further chemical treatment often enhances adsorption properties.

Activated carbon is widely used in filters for gas purificationdecaffeinationmetal extraction and purificationwater purificationmedicinesewage treatmentair filters in gas masks and respirators

compressed air filters,  filtering of alcoholic beverages like vodka and whiskey from organic impurities which can affect color, taste, and odor. There are many other filtering applications for activated carbon.

Activated carbon can be used in varius types of filters, most commonly in panel filters, nonwoven fabric, cartridge type filters....etc. You can download brochures of our activated carbon filters from the links below.
