ACTIVTAED CARBON

Activated carbon is a form of carbon which could be produced from any carbonaceous material such as coal, rice husk, paddy husk, coconut shell, wood etc.Due to their low ash content, high carbon content and natural pore structure, coconut shells are ideal for producing high quality activated carbon.

ACTIVATED CARBON IN EFFLUENT TREATMENT

Effluent treatment is a very critical component of any industrial process because it must ensure the discharge criteria and it should meet the process requirement as the water need to be reused at a facility or other.

BACKWASHING OF INDUSTRIAL MEDIA FILTERS

Water Filtration is to collect or gather impurities from the incoming water flow. When the pores of filters logged, it has to be cleaned by forcing out the accumulated particles by reversing the flow and increasing the velocity of water passing back through the filter.

COCONUT (VS) COAL (VS) WOOD ACTIVATED CARBON

In water treatment applications all the three varieties of carbon (Coconut , Coal & Wood) are used depending upon the nature of treating potable water and waste water. Hence there is a need for a comparative study of various types of carbon based on their specifications.

ACTIVATED CARBON AS DEODORANT

Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal is a form of carbon that is processed to make it extremely porous and thus to have a very large surface area available for adsorption.

Activated Carbon in Oil and Gas Refineries

The versatility of activated carbon allows its application in a variety of processes. Not only can activated carbon provide an increasingly important role in water purification, cleaning contaminated water before emission to the environment, also it can provide an extremely important economic contribution to the operations of oil and gas refineries.

Health Benefits of Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is a powerful natural treatment used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so the body doesn’t reabsorb them. It’s made from a variety of sources, but when used for natural healing, it’s important to select activated charcoal made from coconut shells or other natural sources.

Activated Charcoal in Cosmetics

Activated Charcoal has been used for centuries for purification and detoxification. Activated charcoal is basically a carbonaceous material that has been steam-activated to have more pores and more surface area. Higher surface area and vast pores of the carbon that is available can allow the toxins and other chemicals to bind by a process known as adsorption.

Activated carbon in gold recovery

Even to produce few grams of gold, thousands of tons of ore must be mined, crushed, roasted, ground, treated, pulped and leached. Activated carbon plays a key role in capturing the gold from its ore. In any gold mine, any gold that is not adsorbed by activated carbon will be lost. To achieve the highest possible gold yield, selection of an appropriate activated carbon product is crucial.
