AC FOR THE INDUSTRIAL SECTOR

Activated carbon (AC) is a porous structure with a large surface area (600 to 1,800 m2/gr), comprising mainly pure carbon, which can trap certain types of molecules through the physical/chemical phenomenon called “adsorption”.

 

It is commonly used in purification processes, in order to eliminate one or several compounds from liquids or gasses.

Some examples of AC applications include:

Unacceptable compounds

Unacceptable compounds: compounds that are not acceptable in raw materials or highly pure products, for example the ascorbic acid used to manufacture vitamin C, bleaching sugar or glucose, eliminating chlorine, chloramines and ozone from water, etc.

Atmospheric emissions

Controlling atmospheric emissions from industrial processes. Many industrial processes generate polluting gasses that must be properly treated before going back into the atmosphere. There are several ways to treat these gasses, and one of them is filtration through a bed of granular activated carbon.

ADVANTAGES OF ACTIVATED CARBON

Activated carbon is highly adsorbent and versatile, making it a useful element in a wide range of applications, from eliminating impurities in water to recovering solvent fumes in the industrial sector and recovering gold in mining.

One of the main applications of AC is retaining contaminants from gasses emitted during industrial processes. Nevertheless, AC isn’t used only to treat gasses. It can also be used for purification and separation in numerous industrial sectors, encompassing everything from mining to nuclear.

The proper application of activated carbon will depend on the raw material and activation technique used to produce it. This is why we have a wide range of carbon obtained from different raw materials, in granular, powdered or pellet format.
