Activated carbon or active carbon

 Activated carbon or activate carbon, an effective solution? Activated carbon or activate carbon is commonplace in most applications. Chosen rightly or wrongly as a tote solution in water filtration, is it really an effective product in the purification of water? For what kind of water? Explanations of why and how the use of activated carbon remains the flagship water purification system. Certainly, the manufacture of activated carbon is scientifically documented since its industrial development, but its use has some required if we want to use all of its qualities because it is a friend who can become a formidable enemy bacteriological.

Reminder of what exactly activated charcoal or activated carbon: the active charcoal or activated carbon is the high-temperature char becomes micro-porous. These are the carbon atoms which gives it a strong absorbency due to its high surface micro caves interconnected scientific name van der Waals force. Details of the activated carbon: it has the property of trapping organic particles and some chemical molecules when fluids through it. A little history on activated carbon: evidence for the use of activated carbon by the Egyptians to filter water date back to 1500 years BC or medicinal use by Hippocrates in ancient times. This is the twentieth century that the exploitation of charcoal has developed and diversified for its multiple applications in filtration, discoloration, medical, chemistry, etc. Since then, several manufacturing processes have been developed, including chemistry (Bayer) and steam (Ostreijko) to increase production efficiency and versatile.

Carbolite activated carbon has become the first choice in filtration and purification of water

Carbolite activated carbon has become the first choice in filtration and purification of water

In recent years the global degradation of air and water has become more demanding, requiring today an increasingly efficient treatment with activated carbon. By choosing Carbolite activated carbon, we guarantee the highest adsorption efficiency, one of the essential keys to the efficient purification of water. The physico-technical specifications of this activated carbon clearly demonstrate the difference in quality compared to most active carbons on the market. The adsorption surface in m2/g of a quality active carbon must be large and its negative ionic charge rate sufficient for the exchange of toxic ions takes place with reference to the Van der Waals effect. It is important to change the activated carbon regularly before saturation so that organic matter, heavy metals and chemical residues continue to be neutralized as much as possible. The criterion weight of activated carbon grains 1-3 mm per liter is very important as well: the lighter it is, the higher its adsorption efficiency is high because its micro-porosity is much denser. Which is not the case with the zeolitic rock crystal!
