Adsorption is the process by which a solid holds molecules of a gas or liquid as a thin film. Our CATALYTIC CARBON media is made of activated coconut shell carbon using catalyzed iron-hydroxide for effective adsorption of contaminants.
CATALYTIC CARBON is made with 10% Feroxyhyte (FeOOH) coated granular activated carbon. It has extremely large surface area ranging from 2000m2/g to 2500m2/g, which increases the catalytic activity per unit weight.
Unlike most of the activated carbon in the market, CATALYTIC CARBON can be easily regenerated using Instant-Pro Chemicals INSTANT OXYDES®-P. It has the highest oxidation and adsorption pores inside as well as outside the media.
CATALYTIC CARBON works by:
• Mechanical filtration of fine particles, total suspended solids and turbidity down to 1 micron.
• Adsorption of organic contaminants.
• Adsorption of inorganic contaminants such as arsenic, heavy metals and radionuclides.
