Activated carbon has several properties which explain its performance in a wide range of applications:
- Manufactured from specific grades of coconut shell to produce a Selected Pore Structure for maximum adsorption.
- Coconut based granular activated carbons are suitable for multiple reactivations compared to other base materials such as peat and wood.
- Excellent backwashing characteristics. Carbon bed segregation is retained after repeated backwashing, ensuring the adsorption profile remains unchanged with time and therefore maximising the bed life before breakthrough.
- Activated granulated carbon TS is approved by DWI for contact with drinking water and related applications and complies with the European standard EN 12915 (Products used for the treatment of water intended for human consumption - Granular activated carbon).
