Carbolite is a special activated carbon with very high performance water purification
By choosing Carbolite brand activated carbon, the consumer is sure to obtain very high performance filtration and purification. Tap water, rain, well, rain, river or borehole: Carbolite activated carbon filtration significantly improves their organoleptic qualities (taste and smell). This filtration also reduces any potential risk associated with residual bacteriological, virological or chemical contamination. For which water filtration system is Carbolite activated carbon used? This granulated activated carbon (GAC) means 1-3mm is intended for all water filters with strainers or with specific container. The more dirty the water is, contaminated with organic components or contaminated, the more it will be important to use an active carbon of high adsorption capacity like Carbolite. When the bacteriological contamination is too high, a UV treatment device is coupled with the activated carbon purification. Never hesitate to seek advice and compare technical information, it's about health. How to identify the quality of an activated carbon for the specific treatment of water? The higher physical and technical quality of an activated carbon can be verified in a few figures: BET surface area (m2 / g): 1100, iodine number (mg / g): 1100, pH value: 6-9, Resistance to abrasion (%): 95, ash content (% by weight): <3.0, particle size (3.35 - 2.36 mm) (%):> 95. Activated carbon is also used to purify air, however the technical requirements are different: an activated carbon designed to filter a type of air will probably not be effective to filter all types of water. In fact, pores of 1 to 2 nm are required to purify the air, whereas pores of 2 to 10 nm are sufficient for the adsorption of liquids. To avoid alteration of the active carbon stored in humid environments, Carbolite has found an effective solution to this problem by conditioning its activated carbon immediately in hermetic jerrycans of 2.5 liters and 5 liters, then closed by a tamper-proof cap. This guarantees the maximum maintenance of its adsorbent qualities as long as possible, and the tamper evident cap proves the authenticity of its origin. Why Carbolite is packaged in jerrycan of 5 liters maximum? Experience has shown that storing 4 jerrycans of 5 liters is much more effective than a 20 liters permeable bag. Above 20 or 40 liters, these are quantities for industrial use. Carbolite supplies this sector with a Euro-pallet of 450 kg.
