Granular activated carbon
Description

AquaSorb® 5000 is a high activity activated carbon manufactured from select grades of coal. This material has a predominantly macroporous structure for efficient diffusion and effective adsorption of high molecular weight organic substances in municipal water treatment applications. The activation process produces an adsorbent with a pore size distribution specifically designed for the optimum removal of color, taste, and odor compounds from drinking water.
