for drinking water
and tertiary treatments
Use of activated charcoal dates back to roughly 1550 BC, by the Egyptians, to treat water for human consumption.
This product acts as an adsorbent, removing undesirable elements from the water, such as pesticides, herbicides and naturally occurring organic compounds that make the water look, smell and/or taste bad.
Activated carbon is widely used to treat drinking water and recognised as the best technology available for eliminating undesirable organic compounds for tertiary treatment of industrial waste water.
Activated carbon effectively eliminates a variety of impurities in water, including:
Pesticides and herbicides
Flavours and smells
We work actively with companies in the sector to seek out the best solution, whether through accelerated laboratory testing or real-time pilot programmes that allow us to determine the right type of activated carbon to apply.
CHIEMIVALL ADDS VALUE TO WATER TREATMENT
Depending on the characteristics of the water to be treated and the facilities at the water treatment plant, activated carbon can be used in granular (fixed bed) or powder format (direct dosage or in a bed).
To provide a solution for clients who are greatly inconvenienced by handling powdered activated carbon, we’ve developed CARBENT: pelletised powdered activated carbon. When dry, it behaves like granular AC, minimising dust issues, but it auto-disperses immediately on contact with an aqueous solution.
We have more than 20 years of experience in supplying large volumes of granular and powdered carbon, and have a fleet of tankers reserved exclusively for transporting AC.
Our tankers are loaded at our facilities, using equipment and silos reserved exclusively for activated carbon.
We have our own laboratory that allows us to monitor the saturation levels of GAC at various water treatment plants.
The advantage of using granular carbon, versus powdered, is that when the GAC has used up all its adsorption power it can be regenerated or reactivated to re-establish its initial characteristics so it can be reused, generating less waste and cutting costs.
