Liquid Chemicals

Many manufacturing processes demand cost effective purification, separation, and concentration of chemical liquids.

Liquid Chemicals Technologies/Solutions:

With an extensive range of coal, coconut, granular, powdered and high purity acid washed activated carbons, Calgon Carbon has a solution for a host of purification challenges, for industries producing or using liquid chemicals.

Activated carbon adsorption can be used to remove a wide range of trace impurities, such as specific organics, TOC, and constituents that impact color, during their manufacturing process. This purification can improve downstream processing or produce a higher-purity/ higher value end product. The list of chemicals purified using activated carbon is immense, and includes acids (hydrochloric, phosphoric), aluminum chloride, liquid hydrocarbons, various intermediates and specialty chemicals.
