AquaCarb® CX Series Carbons for DBP TreatmentSource: Evoqua Water Technologies
AquaCarb® CX series carbons from Evoqua, are a coconut shell-based activated carbon that includes both a high micropore and mesopore volume making this an excellent alternative to coal-based activated carbon for surface water treatment.
AquaCarb CX carbon removes volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), allows compliance with Disinfection Byproduct (DBP) regulations, and improves the taste and odor of treated water. The unique carbon achieves lower lifecycle costs, and has an extended throughput capacity before reaching contaminant breakthrough. Laboratory studies, onsite pilot testing, and full-scale demonstrations have proven that AquaCarb CX carbons can achieve a 30-50% longer bed life versus coal-based carbon for many applications.
In addition, the AquaCarb (delete the trademark as we only use it once in the headline and first reference) CX carbons can be reactivated, minimizing spent carbon waste and providing a cost-effective alternative. The reactivated carbon meets ANSI/NSF Standard 61. Furthermore, it has been found that with subsequent reactivation cycles, the pore structure of AquaCarb (delete the trademark as we only use it once in the headline and first reference) CX carbon is maintained and even improved, leading to equal or better performance in many treatment applications.
