Activated carbon is a form of carbon processed or "activated" to increase its' surface area for adsorption or chemical reactions. It is produced from source materials such as nutshells, peat, wood, lignite, coal and petroleum pitch.
Activated carbon is produced in powder, granular and pellet forms with various sizes and treatments available for a large range of industrial and commercial air and liquid applications.
Some of these applications are gas purification, metal extraction, water purification, sewage treatment, air filtration, removal of volatile organic compounds, medical applications, chemical purification and Mercury scrubbing.
Filter Resources can provide activated carbon in bags, drums and supersacks to meet the purification requirements of petrochemical, refining and municipal applications.
