Carbon Bed Filters

Carbon bed filters are used for removal of organic impurities from non-organic fluid stream. Activated carbon is put in a vessel, through which the fluid to be filtered is passed. The activated carbon adsorbs, organic impurities from the fluid and the filtered fluid passes through the void bed and is removed from the outlet nozzle. The activated carbon can be regenerated. Regeneration is dependent on the type of service and the impurity load in the stream.

The supplied carbon contains granular activated carbon made from coal that undergoes a high temperature steam activation process under stringent quality control. The process maximises the adsorption sites for both high and low molecular weight impurities. A good quality activated carbon out performs carbon made from shells, Ashes and mixtures of regenerated carbon. This gives extended carbon life reduces process problem and maintenance and product issue.
