An excellent alternative to coal-based activated carbon for removing disinfection by-products and tastes/odors from surface and groundwater sources.
AquaCarb® CX series carbons have the high microporous structure of coconut shell-based carbon combined with the faster kinetics of bituminous coal-based carbons, resulting in excellent volatile organic carbon (VOC) removal capacity, while also working well in applications where bituminous coal-based carbons have historically been the preferred choice. Our studies have shown that AquaCarb® CX series carbons exhibit a higher adsorption capacity than coal-based carbon for surface water treatment, with greater throughput before carbon breakthrough reducing lifecycle and compliance costs.
AquaCarb® CX enhanced coconut shell carbons are a suitable, high performance alternative to coal based carbons in the following applications:
