Coconut Shell Activated Carbon May 09 2013
Like its name, coconut shell activated carbon comes from the coconut shell. To create its activated carbon form, the coconut undergoes a steam activation process. During activation, it creates millions of pores at the surface of the carbon thus increasing the total surface area. Coconut shell carbon has mainly micro-pores to meso-pores and due to its unique distribution of pore diameter, coconut shell activated carbons are very popular in the gas phase purification and potable water purification industries.
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.
