Micropol 4 200 is a pulverized activated carbon. It is applied in batch processes of activated carbon. The recommended contact time for the charcoal to perform its function is 15 minutes.

The main application of Micropol 4 200 is the deodorization and decolorization of water in municipal water treatment plants that draw surface water from wells, lakes and rivers.

Origin and raw material: This activated carbon is produced from coconut shells, a renewable and environmentally friendly natural resource. Coconut shells are known for their high carbon density and porosity, which makes them an excellent raw material for the production of microporous activated carbon.

Particle shape and size: The product is in powder form with a 200 mesh (0.074 mm) specification, which indicates a very fine particle size. This fineness allows a larger surface area for adsorption and a fast reaction rate, which is crucial in water treatment.

Benefits in the industry

  • High efficiency in the removal of contaminants: Ideal for removing a wide range of organic and inorganic impurities, including chlorine, pesticides and chemical compounds.
  • Use in various industries: Widely used in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries for liquid purification.
  • Water purification: Powdered activated carbon is essential in the water purification process, helping to improve taste, eliminate odors and reduce the presence of harmful compounds.

Advantages over Granular Activated Carbon

  • Larger surface area: The finer particle size provides a larger contact area, resulting in more efficient adsorption.
  • Fast adsorption kinetics: Due to its particle size, powdered carbon allows fast adsorption of contaminants.
  • Versatility in applications: Its powder form allows for more flexible use in different processes and treatment systems.

Environmental considerations

Being produced from coconut shells, this activated carbon is a more sustainable and environmentally friendly option compared to those derived from non-renewable sources.

Coconut shell-based 200 mesh powdered activated carbon is an efficient and environmentally friendly solution for water treatment in various industries. It offers significant benefits in terms of adsorption efficiency, versatility of use and environmental sustainability.
