Activated Carbon is a very active product with a high proportion of medium and large pores. It is recommended for the adsorption of large quantities of high molecular weight substances.

We are leading supplier of Activated Carbon and Activated Charcoal for various industrial applications worldwide like Petrochemical, Sewage Treatment, Water Treatment Plants, Activated Carbon for contamination, odour and colour removal.
Activated carbon is useful in drinking water treatment because it acts as an adsorbent, and can effectively remove particles and organics from water. These organics are of great concern in water treatment because they react with many disinfectants, especially chlorine.
The use of Granular Activated Carbon in wastewater treatment systems is a proven process for removal of organic compounds. As a tertiary treatment method, carbon adsorption and regeneration have been used to process domestic wastewaters contaminated with industrial wastes of organic origin as well as biologically treated waste waters. Activated Carbon, when contacted with water containing organic material, will remove these compounds selectively by a combination of adsorption of the less polar molecules, filtration of the larger particles, and partial deposition of colloidal material on the exterior surface. The quantity of Activated Carbon required will depend upon the degree of contamination.
TYPES OF ACTIVATED CARBON
POWDERED ACTIVATED CARBON :-
Powdered varieties of Activated Carbon are used in liquid phase application primarily for removal of undesired color, smell and other impurities in many types of industries Including basic drugs, fine chemicals, glucose, sugar, electroplating plasticizers and so on. Quite often, powdered carbon is washed with acid and then, repeatedly with water & dried to minimize impurities like soluble ash-iron, heavy metals etc. Activated Carbon is Invariably used in a batch process at the penultimate stage of manufacture of a product. A pre-determined quantity of activated carbon is added to a solution and after stirring for a certain contact time mostly at elevated temperature carbon is filtered out or to get sparkling color free solutions from which product are recovered. it is pertinent to mention that use of powdered activated carbon apart from decolonization imparts several other benefits like longer shelf life, truer, and bolder crystals, closer melting and boiling points etc.
GRANULAR ACTIVATED CARBON :%u2013
Granular activated carbons are mostly made from Coconut Shells on petroleum coke, bituminous coal or lignite. Granular activated carbon is used in continuous process in areas like water treatment (drinking & effluent water), removal of mercury from effluents or alkali cells, solvent recovery, gold recovery, removal of odour, gas masks, as catalyst carrier, for decholorination of water, purification & separation of gases, kitchen hoods, dry cleaning etc.
