Description

ACTIVATED CARBON FILTER MEDIA

Adsorption is the accumulation of a gas or liquid on the surface of a liquid or solid substrate, as opposed to absorption, in which the encroaching substance enters the substrate’s bulk or volume. Activated carbon filter media is porous, inexpensive, and readily available for use as adsorbents, furnishing a large surface area to remove contaminants. It has a more useful surface area per gram than any other material available for physical adsorption. In fact, a teaspoon of activated carbon has more surface area than a football field.

ACTIVATED CARBON FILTER MEDIA ADSORPTION

Adsorption is a process where a solid is used for removing a soluble substance from the water. In this process active carbon is solid. Activated carbon is produced specifically so as to achieve a very big internal surface. This big internal surface makes active carbon ideal for adsorption. Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) is mostly used in water treatment, it can adsorb the following soluble substances:

  • Adsorption of organic, non-polar substances such as:
    • Mineral oil
    • BTEX
    • Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PACs)
    • (Chloride) phenol
  • Adsorption of halogenated substance: I, Br, Cl, H en F
  • Odor
  • Taste
  • Yeasts
  • Various fermentation products
  • Non-polar substances (Substances which are nonsoluble in water
