Activated Carbon is a manifestation of carbon that involves elaborate steps. The first step is to actuate carbon by a deliberately controlled oxidation procedure to build up a permeable carbon structure. The so derived structure brings about a high level of porosity and over a wide scope of pore sizes, from noticeable splits and fissure to crevices and voids of sub-atomic measurements. The predefined structure of carbon provides it a vast surface zone which permits the carbon to adsorb an extensive variety of compounds. Activated carbon thus formed has the most elevated volume of adsorbing porosity of any material found on earth.
Physical Characteristics of Activated Carbon
Hardness: Coconut shell based Activated Carbon has a special property of the most elevated hardness (more than 99%) which builds the solidness and lessens misfortune in application, taking care of and recovery.
Ash Content: This is the inorganic, latent, nebulous and unusable part in the activated carbon. This fiery debris comes at first from the fundamental material. Bring down the slag content, the better the activated carbon. The limit of ash content allowed in this activated carbon is between 2-5%.
Moisture: This is the measure of water bound inside the activated carbon under typical condition. The level of dampness substance permitted in the activated carbon allowed is between 3 and 6%.
pH Content: The pH Value of activated carbon is a measure of whether it is acidic or basic. Coconut shell based Activated Carbon typically is indicated for a pH of 9 – 11.
Activcarb strives to produce activated carbons from handpicked coconut shells to ensure that end product thus produced is of finest quality and meets the set international standards.
