Powder Activated Carbon
Activated carbon is used to purify liquids and gases in a variety of applications, including domestic drinking water, food and beverage processing, odor removal, and industrial pollution control.
Activated charcoal consists of carbon-based raw materials such as coconuts, nut shells, charcoal, peat, and wood.
The main raw material for activated carbon is any organic material with a high carbon content.
Adsorption is a process in which a solid is used to remove a soluble substance from water. In this process, activated carbon is a solid. Activated carbon is produced specifically to obtain a very large internal surface (from 500 to 1500 m2 / g). Thanks to its large internal surface, activated carbon is ideal for adsorption.
Carbon is unique in its chemical properties because it forms a number of components that exceeds the combined addition of all other elements when combined with each other.
The largest group of all these components is made up of carbon and hydrogen. We know at least about 1 million organic components and this number is increasing rapidly every year. Although the classification is not rigid, carbon forms a different set of compounds that are considered inorganic, in much smaller quantities than organic compounds.
Elemental carbon exists in two well-defined allotropic crystalline forms: diamond and graphite. Other forms with little crystallinity are charcoal and black smoke. Chemically pure carbon can be obtained by thermal decomposition of sugar (sucrose) in the absence of air. The physical and chemical properties of carbon depend on the crystalline structure of the element.
