Technical principle of activated carbon filter

Mar 24, 2020

Activated carbon filter is made of high-quality fruit shell charcoal and coal-based activated carbon, supplemented with edible-grade adhesives, and processed by high-tech technology using a special process. It integrates adsorption, filtration, interception, and catalysis. Can effectively remove organic matter, residual chlorine and other radioactive materials in the water, and has the effect of decolorization and odor removal. It is an ideal new generation product in the liquid and air purification industry.

Type: compressed activated carbon filter, carbon fiber filter, granular activated carbon filter

Filtering method

Activated carbon filtration. According to the adsorption characteristics of activated carbon, activated carbon is mainly used to remove pollutants in the water, decolorize, filter and purify liquids and gases, and also used for air purification treatment and exhaust gas recovery (such as the recovery of gaseous benzene in the chemical industry). Recycling and refining of precious metals (such as the absorption of gold). Activated carbon is mainly made of substances with high carbon content, such as wood, coal, nut shells, bones, petroleum residues, etc. Coconut shell is the most commonly used raw material. Under the same conditions, the active quality and other characteristics of coconut shell are the best, because it has the largest specific surface. Activated carbon is a kind of multi-pore carbide, which has a very rich pore structure and good adsorption characteristics. Its adsorption is made of physical and chemical suction, and its appearance is black. In addition to the main carbon, its composition also contains a small amount of hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen, and its structure looks like a hexagon. Due to the irregular hexagonal structure, it is determined that it has a large volume and high surface area. Characteristics: Each gram of activated carbon has a specific surface equivalent to 1,000 square meters.
