Activated carbon (activated carbon)
Activated carbon is a group of porous and high internal surface carbon materials that due to their significant internal area, porous and porous structure, high adsorption capacity, surface reactivation capability and also low price compared to attractions Inorganic, like zeolite, is a unique material. Their important application is in separating odors, colors, unwanted tastes from water in domestic and industrial operations, solvent recycling, air purification, especially in restaurants, food and chemical industries.
The term activated carbon or activated carbon refers to a series of adsorbents with charcoal and crystalline shape that have many pores in their internal structure.
Its varieties are made from coconut husk, peat, soft and hard wood, brown coal, bituminous charcoal, olive kernels and other special carbonaceous materials. Chemical activation and high temperature steam activation are methods used to produce activated carbon from these raw materials.
