Granular coal based activated carbon
Description

AquaSorb® 2000 is a high activity granular activated carbon manufactured by steam activation from select grades of bituminous coal. The perfect balance between adsorption and transport pores provides optimum performance in a wide range of water treatment applications. The product is a high density adsorbent and provides maximum volume activity. The material is water washed during manufacture and therefore wets rapidly. The excellent hardness and mechanical strength ensures negligible losses during backwashing, air scouring and multiple reactivations.
