Coconut Shell based Activated Carbon products are well known for their signature physical properties.
Very large internal surface areas characterized by micro porosity along with relatively high hardness and low dust make these carbons particularly attractive for water and critical air applications such as point of use water filters and respirators respectively.
Carbon Solutions, LLC., as a manufacturer and distributor of Coconut Shell based carbons stocks a wide range of high quality products. In addition to granular forms, we hold a number of pelletized grades (3mm, 4mm & 5mm) available for delivery to any destination worldwide.
- Very high surface area characterized by a large proportion of micro pores
- High hardness with low dust generation.
- Excellent purity, with most products exhibiting no more than 3-5% ash content.
- Renewable and green raw material.
Coal based Activated Carbon products are commonly used across a large number of industries for a variety of applications.
Demand is typically high for this relatively low cost filter media in both gas and liquid applications.
Carbon Activated Corp. stocks a large variety of common granular and pelletized grades (3mm, 4mm & 5mm), in addition to powder carbon. We have excellent sourcing capabilities for a number of specialist coal based activated carbons available for direct shipment in container loads to worldwide customer destinations
High surface area characterized by a proportion of both mesopore (A mesoporous material is a material containing pores with diameters between 2 and 50 nm. Porous materials are classified into several kinds by their size) and micropores (A microporous material is a material containing pores with diameters less than 2 nm).
- Consistent density
- Hard materials with minimal dust generation.
Wood based Activated Carbons are a growing product finding use in a number of new applications in addition to producing different performance characteristics in industrial applications typically catered for by coal or coconut products.
Wood carbons have excellent decolorizing properties owing to their signature porosimetry.
High surface area characterized by a large proportion of mesopores and macropores
- Relatively low density
- Renewable source of raw material
In-house expertise is available for selection of the optimum carbon for any application.
Anthracite filter media is a hard, compact variety of coal that has a high luster. It has the highest carbon content, the fewest impurities, and the highest calorific content of all types of coal, which also include bituminous coal and lignite.
Anthracite promotes higher service flow rates and longer filter runs with less head loss than single media filter beds. Backwash rates are reduced as well. The filter medium is usually a 15-30 in. deep bed of sand or anthracite particle bed supports the filter media to prevent fine sand or anthracite from escaping into the underdrain system. The support bed also serves to distribute backwash water. Typical support beds consist of 1 8-1 in. gravel or anthracite in graded layers to a depth of 12-16 in.
Our activated carbon products effectively remove contaminants, pollutants and other impurities from air, water, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals and more.
