GRANULAR ACTIVATED CARBON
Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) is a specific preparation of activated carbon, or activated charcoal. It has been used as a purification agent since the early 19th century. Today, activated carbon in various forms, including granular, is used in a wide range of industrial, commercial, and home applications to remove contaminants.
The absorptive capacity of GAC makes it ideal for removing a variety of contaminants from water, air, liquids, and gases. GAC is an environmentally responsible product that can be reactivated through thermal oxidation and used multiple times for the same application.
As the world’s largest manufacturer of granular activated carbon, Calgon Carbon backs its products with comprehensive analytical support including feasibility studies and cost evaluations, together with complete system design, service and troubleshooting. Calgon Carbon brings unmatched expertise in developing GAC applications which means that whatever your GAC need, Calgon Carbon has a product engineered specifically to provide a better solution.
POWDERED ACTIVATED CARBON
Calgon Carbon Corporation manufactures many types of Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC) products, each specifically engineered to provide a unique pore structure and adsorption properties.
The adsorptive capacity of Calgon Carbon’s PAC makes it ideal for removing various contaminants from water, air, liquid and gases. With efforts to be environmentally responsible, Calgon Carbon can reactivate spent Granular Activated Carbon through thermal oxidation to make “react” Powdered Activated Carbon.
Calgon Carbon brings more than 70 years of experience in producing powdered activated carbons specifically engineered to meet the demands of individual industrial applications. From residential and municipal water treatment to pharmaceutical product purification, and from food and beverage decolorization to energy storage, and much more — Calgon Carbon delivers a wide array of custom-engineered powdered activated carbons to better meet your needs.
PELLETIZED ACTIVATED CARBON
Pellets are activated carbon compressed into formed cylinders and have a wide variety of uses such as removing contaminants like volatile organic compounds and mercury from natural gas as well as controlling odor.
Pellets are specifically designed to provide a unique pore structure and adsorption properties. The adsorptive capacity of pelletized carbon makes it ideal for removing a variety of contaminants from air and gas streams. Pellets are also an environmentally responsible product that can be reactivated through thermal oxidation and used multiple times for the same application.
ACTIVATED CARBON CLOTH
Calgon Carbon is a pioneer in cutting-edge textile through its activated carbon cloth (ACC) used for medical, defense, and industrial applications.
Flexorb™ ACC is 100% activated carbon and is more effective at adsorption compared to other carbon loaded materials which have a lower activated carbon content.
Flexorb™ ACC has a microporous structure which results in rapid adsorption kinetics and the capability to adsorb to a higher level of purity. Flexorb™ ACC is also suitable for use in applications where there is a high humidity as its adsorption capacity is less adversely affected by moisture.
