Ultra Activated Carbon
Activated carbon (also called active carbon, activated charcoal, or activated coal) is a form of carbon that has been processed to make it extremely porous and thus to have a very large surface area available for adsorption and chemical reactions. It is usually derived from charcoal. Activated carbon is valuable for a variety of applications. Examples include gas purification, water purification, metal extraction, gold recovery, medicine, sewage treatment, air filters in gas masks and filter masks, and filters in compressed air. In addition, activated carbon is useful for the deodorization of closed spaces such as refrigerators and warehouses. Sufficient activation for useful applications may come solely from the high surface area, though further chemical treatment often enhances the adsorption ability of the material.
Activated Carbon For Solvent Recovery
To further improve the action of activated carbon, we can impregnate the activated carbon with selected chemicals. Impregnation of activated carbon gives the activated carbon additional properties such as chemisorption properties which reinforces the adsorption or can result in bacteriostatic properties by controlled, low silver leach in point of use (POU) or point of entry (POE) home water appliance filters.
