Granular Activated Carbon

Granular Activated Carbon

Granular activated carbon is manufactured from materials such as wood, coconut shells, coal or peat that are high in carbon. Granular activated carbon filters are manufactured with the carbon which is grouped and held together closely into a container. While, activated carbon filters are made by grinding activated carbon into powder form.

Granulated activated carbon is used to purity air, water, liquids, and gasses. We have provided our customers with a range of granulated activated carbon with different materials, methods, and degrees of activation to meet their applications. 

Granular activated carbon has a high absorption capacity which makes it suitable for a variety of applications like removing impurities from the air, water, liquids and gasses. It can be used multiple times as it can be reactivated by thermal oxidation. We have a research and engineering team which always provides the best solution to every requirement. We make a unique product as per the requirements by varying the manufacturing process. JMB carbon is one of the best granular activated carbon suppliers in India.

Applications and Uses of Granular Activated Carbon

Granular activated carbons are comparatively larger in size than powder activated carbons and are the purest form of carbon with a high surface area. It is widely used in both liquid and gas phases. We provide granular activated carbon in different sizes such as 4/8, 8/16, and 16/32.

Granular activated carbon is made from coconut shells, peat, and wood, which are high in carbon. Heat is used to operate the outer area of the carbon, separating a few chemicals dissolved in water as they pass through a filter with granular activated carbon. The granular activated carbon due to its porous quality is able to absorb the chemical. Granular activated carbon is manufactured from coconut shells, which results in high hardness and can absorb impurities effectively with micropore molecular structure. 

Granular activated carbon for water treatment has been used widely due to its taste and odor removing properties. It is used after treatment and before disinfection. It is very effective in different chemicals and especially the organic chemicals from the water. It can also be used to remove chemicals like hydrogen sulphide or chlorine which give a bad odor and taste to water.

Granular activated carbon has an excellent absorptive capacity which makes it ideal for removing various impurities from air, water, liquids, and gases. It is also an environmentally friendly product as it can be reactivated through thermal oxidation and can be used many times for the same use. We have supply granular activated carbon to various customers and provided them best quality products.

FAQs About Granular Activated Carbon

What Is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC), and How Does It Work?

Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) is a highly porous and adsorbent form of activated carbon. It is used to remove impurities, contaminants, and undesirable substances from liquids and gases. GAC works by trapping these substances within its porous structure through a process called adsorption, which is the adhesion of molecules to the surface of the carbon.

What Are the Common Applications of Granular Activated Carbon?

GAC is widely used in water treatment for the removal of chlorine, organic compounds, and taste and odor issues. It is also employed in air and gas purification, industrial processes, and various environmental and industrial applications, such as wastewater treatment and vapor phase adsorption.

How Does a Granular Activated Carbon Filter Work, and Why Is It Important?

A granular activated carbon filter is a device that uses GAC to remove contaminants and impurities from water or air. It functions by allowing the water or air to pass through the GAC, where the adsorption process takes place. It is crucial because it improves the quality and safety of the water we drink and the air we breathe, making it a vital component of various filtration systems.

Is Granular Activated Carbon Safe for Drinking Water Filtration?

Yes, Granular Activated Carbon is safe and widely used for drinking water filtration. It is highly effective in removing chlorine, organic compounds, and many common contaminants, enhancing the taste and quality of drinking water.

Can Granular Activated Carbon Filters Be Used in Home Filtration Systems?

Absolutely, Granular Activated Carbon filters are commonly used in home filtration systems, such as under-sink filters, whole-house systems, and countertop units. They provide an efficient and cost-effective way to improve the quality of your tap water.

How Long Does Granular Activated Carbon Last in a Filter System?

The lifespan of Granular Activated Carbon in a filter system depends on factors like the flow rate, the volume of water processed, and the type and concentration of contaminants. Generally, GAC filters need periodic replacement or reactivation, which can extend their lifespan.

What Is the Difference Between Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC) and Granular Activated Carbon (GAC)?

The primary difference lies in the particle size. GAC consists of larger granules, while PAC is finely powdered. GAC is typically used in larger filtration systems, such as municipal water treatment, while PAC is more suitable for smaller, batch-type processes.

How Is Granular Activated Carbon Reactivated or Regenerated?

Granular Activated Carbon can be reactivated through a thermal process. It involves heating the spent GAC to high temperatures to burn off the adsorbed impurities. This regeneration process can restore the adsorption capacity of GAC, making it suitable for reuse in many applications.

Is Granular Activated Carbon Environmentally Friendly?

Yes, Granular Activated Carbon is considered environmentally friendly as it is derived from renewable sources, such as coconut shells, wood, and peat. Additionally, its adsorption properties can help remove contaminants from water and air, contributing to a cleaner environment.
