    Why Active Carbon Water Filter

    Is Your Best Choice What’s activated carbon block water filter? How it works and how to choose among options for your specific needs? During water filtration, Activated carbon is often the media used to remove contaminants and impurities. Carbon is probably the most efficient absorbent known to man, and it is unique because of its thousand tiny pores that can absorb. The carbon is positively charged to attract negatively charged impurities such as chlorine, chemicals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Most carbon water filters are either made with granular activated carbon (GAC), or powdered block carbon material. Activated carbon water filters are rated by the size of contaminants they remove.…

    Types of Activated Carbon

    Powdered activated carbon (PAC) and granular activated carbon (GAC) are the two types of activated carbon. Don’t get confused. This article will guide you through the background and the strength of each activated carbon. Powdered activated carbon

    Activated Carbon and Air Filters

    Activated carbon is carbon that has been treated with oxygen. After the treatment, millions of tiny pores are activated on the carbon’s surface. Amazingly, these pores are so numerous that a single pound of activated carbon may provide 60 to 150 acres of surface area to trap pollutants. Once carbon has been activated, it can remove a bunch of airborne chemicals, for example, alcohols, organic acids, aldehydes, sulfur dioxide, sulfuric acid, and phosgene. It also removes odours, whether they are from humans or animals. It also removes perfumes, other household cleaning chemicals, and is especially good at removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
