- Retention of organic contaminants
Coconut shell micro activated carbon.
MICRO 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.
