Powdered activated carbon (PAC) is a type of water treatment media that is made from activated carbon in a finely ground, powder form. It is commonly used in water treatment systems to remove contaminants from water, such as chlorine, sediment, and organic compounds.
PAC works by using the adsorption process to remove contaminants from water. Adsorption is the process by which contaminants are attracted to and stick to the surface of the activated carbon. As water passes through the PAC, the contaminants are trapped and removed, leaving behind clean, purified water.
One of the advantages of using PAC is that it has a large surface area, which makes it effective at removing a wide range of contaminants from water. It is also easy to use and can be easily added to water treatment systems.
However, PAC does have some limitations. It can be difficult to remove from water, as it tends to clump and settle to the bottom of treatment tanks. It is also more expensive than other types of water treatment media, such as granular activated carbon.
In general, PAC is a useful water treatment media that is effective at removing a wide range of contaminants from water. It is commonly used in a variety of water treatment applications, including municipal water treatment plants, industrial water treatment systems, and point-of-use water filtration systems.
