Coconut shell activated carbon
Micro K is a charcoal made from coconut shell, which is thermally activated in an atmosphere with highly reducing characteristics. Being of vegetable origin, it does not contain metals or other contaminants present in mineral coals.
By its nature, coconut shell carbon forms micropores on its surface, capable of adsorbing low molecular weight organic pollutants more efficiently. In addition, thanks to its high hardness, compared to coals of other raw materials, it is more resistant to erosion, which avoids material losses in the operation.
Raw material: Coconut shell
Particle size range (mesh size): 8×30, 12×40
Presentation: 25 kg bags, 1ft3 bags and 500 kg super bags.
pH in aqueous extract: 10 max.
Applications of granular coconut charcoal:
- Drinking water purification
- Elimination of odors and flavors
- Retention of organic contaminants
MICRO K is an activated carbon that is produced with the basic properties to fulfill these functions, at a very competitive price. It is manufactured from coconut shell and thermally activated in a reducing atmosphere, saturated with water vapor.
This gives this coal three fundamental qualities to be used for water purification:
a) The raw material is of vegetable origin, and therefore does not contain the heavy metals and other contaminants typically present in mineral coals.
b) When activated thermally, no chemical compounds that could leave residues in the coal are used.
c) Coconut shell charcoal has the pore diameter that most efficiently adsorbs low molecular weight organic contaminants, which are usually the most harmful to humans.
