What is Activated Carbon?
Activated Carbon is produced from carbonaceous material like coconut, peat, lignite, coal, wood etc. The carbon-based material is then activated by treating it in a furnace at high temperature. The resulting product will have a high rate of adsorption due to its large surface area per unit volume, resulting from a large network of submicroscopic pores.
How is it made?
Coconut shell based charcoal is converted to activated carbon by treating it a rotary kiln in a process known as Steam Activation. The kiln has a length of 60 ft and attains a temperature of 800 – 1100OC. Activated Carbon taken out of the Kiln is further processed for Destoning and Dedusting. Stoneless Activated Carbon is then passed through Gyro Screener for particle size separation. Separated particles are moved to packing center and are packed according to Customer Specifications.
