Gama B – Bituminous Coal Activated Carbon (Mineral)


Bituminous coal activated carbon

This mineral activated carbon has a wide range of pore sizes and is therefore particularly suitable for tertiary treatment of wastewater and surface water from wells, rivers, wells and lakes.

NSF – ANSI 61 certified granular granular bituminous mineral activated carbon

Mineral activated carbon is an activated carbon used for surface water treatment. Bituminous activated mineral carbon removes impurities from water and can be used in water treatment plants to remove organic contaminants, some inorganic compounds and pesticides from water.

Raw material: Bituminous Coal

Particle size range (mesh size): 8×30 and 12×40

Presentation: 1 cubic foot (ft3) bag, 25 kg bag, 500 kg super bag.

Certification: NSF ANSI 61

Bituminous coal activated carbon applications:

  • Tertiary wastewater treatment
  • Drinking water treatment
  • Removing chlorine from water
  • Treatment of surface water from wells, rivers, wells and lakes.
  • Retention of organic contaminants in liquid products

Gama B is manufactured from bituminous coal carbon, carefully selected to achieve the formation of a wide range of pores during activation -from 2 to 50 nanometers-. The size of its pores allows it to accommodate the most diverse organic contaminants dissolved in the liquid to be treated.

This characteristic makes Gama B the ideal carbon for wastewater treatment, since it can adsorb contaminants of large molecular size such as dyes, as well as small ones such as odors. However, Gama B can also be used for water purification, purification of other liquid products and many other specific processes.

Activated carbon for water treatment.

It has a fine particle size and high adsorption capacity which makes it very suitable for the removal of color, odor, turbidity and other impurities present in water. The unique physical and chemical characteristics of bituminous coal activated carbon have made it virtually the only choice for surface water treatment applications.
