Applications of activated carbon free of fines:
- Purification of drinking water with a cleaner start-up.
- Declorination (elimination of free chlorine)
- Elimination of odors and flavors
- Retention of organic contaminants
MICRO LF is an activated carbon that is produced with the basic properties to fulfill these functions, in addition to carrying an extra process for the cleaning of fine dust by means of air, 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.
e) The fines content is much lower than that of a standard activated carbon, in a process subsequent to activation, the carbon is passed through aerators that depress the light fines (dust). *The coal is not totally without fines.
