Activated Carbon Filter Working PrincipleAn activated carbon filter (ACF) works on the principle of adsorption; filter medium adsorbs or reacts with a pollutant molecules then filtered water is drained out. Activated carbon which is used as medium to remove contaminants is natural material derived from coconut shell, lignite, bituminous coal etc. further, activated by chemical or steam under absence of oxygen with high temperature around 1000°C. Specific contaminants can be removed by employing blends of various carbons.
Activated Carbon Filter Working PrincipleThere are some limitations of activated carbon filters (ACF); uses are limited to wastes with low organic concentrations (< 5%) and very low inorganic concentrations (< 1%). Removing highly soluble organics or those with low molecular weights are also out of their capabilities. An activated carbon filtration system is unable to remove all of contaminants; such as, microbes, sodium, fluoride and hardness from water; however, special activated carbon water treatment is necessary for removing lead and other heavy metals. In addition, disposal process of contaminated carbon is complicated if not regenerated.
Which Activated Carbon is Right For You?There are two types of activated carbons available, Granules Activated Carbon (GAC) and Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC); choosing which one is best suitable for your application is not a difficult task. In general, Granule Activated Carbon is made by steam activation of coal and is widely used in purifying drinking water, whereas Powdered Activated Carbon is produced by steam activation of lignite coal under carefully controlled conditions and is used in treating (remove toxic organics along with BOD, COD and TOC) industrial wastewater, process water and highly contaminated municipal wastewater.
Activation Carbon Filter Design & InstallationWe design, manufacture and install activated carbon filters (ACF) for industrial, commercial and domestic water treatment. Our ACFs utilize special highly activated carbons and are configured to meet industry specific requirements and flow rates. Often called pressure carbon filter (PCF), these filtration systems assure optimal carbon utilization, widely used in laboratory, commercial and industrial water treatment applications, where these units play a crucial role in pre-treatment for reverse osmosis, deionizer and softener plants. As an option, these ACFs are also fitted with steam sterilization system for regeneration of activated carbon bed.
From hundreds of nationwide installations, we have gained necessary technical experience in activated carbon filtration that makes us confident in providing you right suggestions and budgetary quotations. We assure you of competitive price, unmatched water quality and dedicated after sales support anywhere in India.
