Coal based activated carbon May 09 2013

 

Coal based activated carbon originates from coal that has undergone a steam activation process. During activation,millions of pores are created on the surface of the carbon, increasing the total surface area. Coal based carbon has mainly meso-pores and macro-pores and due to its unique distribution of pore diameter, coal based activated carbon is very popular in gas phase purification, potable water purification, wastewater purification and aquarium/pond water purification applications.
