Sorbent material with high loading capacity for ultrapurification of air and gases.
Cylindrical formed carbon with wide-spread pore structure for high contaminant content.
Suitable for almost complete removal of organic contaminants, such as oil vapours, odorous substances, aromatics, aldehydes, ketones, pyridines, furans, chlorinated hydrocarbons etc.
Contact time for contaminant elimination out of air and technical gases: approx. 0.2 to 4 sec.
Loading capacity decreases with increasing temperature.
Reduction of adsorption capacity with rel. high gas humidity (>70 %).
Separation without problems by adsorption in the activated carbon pores requires for gases a contact time of 0.1 sec in air conditioning technology and of 4 sec. in chemical process engineering (oxidation, hydrolysis or complex formation).
Optimal gas speed in process engineering approx. 0.25 to 0.3 m/s.
Loaded activated carbon granulate is not regenerable.

General Information Granular Material
Separation of solid or liquid particles out of gases.
Production of pure and purest reference and analysis gases by mechanical separation (filtration) as well as physical and chemical separation (adsorption and catalysis).
Fine gas purification is performed by catalysis and adsorption allowing reduction of contaminants up to few ppb.
