Product Details
What is Catalytic Granular Activated Carbon
Catalytic carbon is a liquid phase virgin activated carbon that has been manufactured to develop catalytic functionality. The product is unique in that it concentrates reactants via adsorption and then promotes their reaction on the surface of the pores. Catalytic carbon is produced from coconut shell using a patented process for the use in liquid phase systems to promote catalytic reactions. The reactant concentration determines the effective contact time. Although it is not impregnated with metals or alkali, it displays the catalytic functionality of these materials.

BENEFITS OF CATALYTIC ACTIVATED CARBON
• Catalytic activity allows for smaller more compact system sizing and lower capital requirements
• No safety concerns with exotherms or toxicity like some impregnated medias
• Improved trace organic capacity per unit volume
• High hardness reduces fines and losses due to handling
• Works with low oxidant levels and limits the need for chemicals
• Simple and reliable equipment design that will handle spikes in concentration without metering of chemicals
• Reduced carbon requirements, reduced operating costs
• Enhanced carbon media performance for a greater degree of contaminant removal at reduced costs
• Thermal reactivation is an option for recycle and reuse to minimize operating costs and eliminates disposal concerns.
