How to choose an appropriate Activated Carbon Filter?
Activated carbon has a black colour, a well-developed pore structure, a sizable specific surface area, and a powerful adsorption capability. It is a typical adsorbent, catalyst, or carrier for catalysts. Large adsorption capacity, extended service life, high mechanical strength, low ash content, ease of washing, and good effluent quality are necessary qualities, for good activated carbon.
It has a high level removal rate of pollutants including chlorine, phenol, mercury, lead, arsenic, chloride, detergent, pesticide, fertilizer, and other contaminants in water, in addition to removing odd smells and odours.
The negative electric charge of activated carbon attracts the molecules of several pollutants. Organic and carbon-based pollutants are successfully bonded to the surface of an active carbon filter, but some compounds, such as salt and nitrates, pass right through it. Let's explore the several types of activated carbon filters available for water filtering, and how to choose the right activated carbon filter!
Types of activated carbon filter
· Granular Activated carbon filter
Granular activated carbon filters are created using medium or nut shell activated carbon, with some coconut shell. It may efficiently adsorb organic contaminants, chemical pesticides, residual chlorine, various colours, and aromas in water, due to its high micropore density and specific surface area.
No chemical additives are used while filling the plastic filter housing with activated carbon particles. To stop the emission of carbon particles, the upper entrances and lower surfaces of the shell are covered, in numerous layers of micro-fibre non-woven materials. Since, the liquid flows from the bottom to the top, a large and prolonged area of liquid contact with the layer of activated carbon particles is guaranteed.
· Activated cartridge filters with extruded carbon blocks
As a filter material, carbon derived from coal or coconut is employed, sintered and compacted with a food-grade binder. It has an iodine concentration of over 900. In water treatment equipment, CTO Carbon Filter is used to filter out fine contaminants, and eliminate residual chlorine, chemical pesticides, distinct colours, and aromas.
The RO membrane is protected by it at the third stage of the pure water machine, and its service life is between three and six months.
· Cartridges with carbon impregnated cellulose
A new generation of adsorption materials, carbon impregnated cellulose filter has both the gentle process ability of textile fibres, and the inherent fundamental properties of carbon materials. The inner and outer surfaces of the Carbon Impregnated Cellulose Filters contain more than 80% of the carbon atoms, creating an exceptional adsorption structure known as a surface solid.
The exterior layer of the filter element is lined with precision fibre filter material, and then wrapped by activated carbon fibre cloth, combining with the dual-function of activated carbon adsorption. The deep fibre filter material structure's outer layer can block the pollution particles, as the liquid passes through the filter material.
Water purification, colour removal, odour removal, organic removal, air purification equipment, ozone filters, gasoline traps, and other industries, use carbon impregnated cellulose filters extensively.
· Filter cartridges with pleated activated carbon
High quality activated carbon fibres, active carbon impregnated fibres, and fibre paper can all be found in activated carbon pleated filters. It has a deep filtration, a high flux, and resistance to heat, acids, and alkalis. For things like chlorine, organic materials, and odour, it has a significant capacity for adsorption. No dangerous chemicals are precipitated, either.
· Activated carbon composite filter
Some activated carbon filters include a specific proportion of PP melt blown fibre, while designing them, giving them the benefits of both a sediment filter and activated carbon.
Activated carbon and PP composite filter, also known as composite activated carbon filter, is the name given to this filter. It may effectively remove residual chlorine, colours, and odours in addition to retaining big particles like rust, yellow sand, and small insects.
Applications areas of activated carbon
1: Pure water, gas, electrolytic fluid, printing line plates, etc. are used in the electronics and power industries.
2: Chemical and petrochemical products, liquid waxes, coatings, magnetic paste, cleaners, etc.
3: Hospital water, pharmaceutical injections, oral liquids, etc.
4: Food, drink, water, alcohol, and other related industries.
