Activated Carbon

Activated carbon from coconut shell has predominantly pores in micro pore range. Almost 85-90% surface area of coconut shell activated carbon exists as micro-pores. These small pores structure renders it more effective for the adsorption of gas/vapour and for the removal of colour and odour of compounds.

The predominance of micro-pores in coconut shell carbon gives it tight structure and provides good mechanical strength and hardness and also high resistance to resist attrition or wearing away by friction.

The activated carbon from coconut shell is extensively used in the refining and bleaching of vegetable oils and chemical solutions, water purification, recovery of solvents and other vapours, recovery of gold, in gas masks for protection against toxic gases, in filters for providing adequate protection against war gases/nuclear fall outs, etc.

Granular Activated Carbon (GAC)

Granular Activated carbon from coconut shell is available in varying mesh sizes for application in gas and liquid filtrations.

Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC)

The adsorptive capacity of powdered activated carbon (PAC) makes it ideal for removing a variety of contaminants from water, air, liquids and gases. PAC is available in varying mesh sizes according to customer needs.
