It’s possible to reactivate exhausted granular activated carbon by various methods, thermal activation is the most common (exposed to 800 °C on a rotary furnace in an atmosphere saturated with water vapor.) The obtained carbon usually recovers all of its original capacity.
We offer the service of reduction or removal of undesirable compounds in distillates, by means of adsorption on activated carbons. These compounds can modify the desired profile, cause color, turbidity, flavor, aroma or other organoleptic effect, depending on their physicochemical characteristics.
In case we determine that activated carbon is the most competitive solution to a purification problem, we select the most suitable carbon, design and select the equipment by means of adsorption isotherms, column processes at laboratory and pilot plant level. Operational troubleshooting and operation optimization.
