Unwashed Activated Carbon

Unwashed Powdered Activated Carbon

Unwashed activated carbon is generally manufactured from pine wood. When compared with the acid washed activated carbon they contain more amount of water and acid soluble matter, iron and ash. Due to all these characteristics, they are used for a wide range of applications in fine chemicals, dyes and intermediate industries.

Unwashed powdered activated carbon is used in the removal of harmful gasses, filtering liquid and treatment of water. Our products are used by the water and air purification industry, waste water treatment industry, thermal & nuclear power stations and pharmaceutical industry.

Applications and Uses of Unwashed Activated Carbon

The activating of the charcoal is done by heating it at a high temperature with steam which is known as steam activated process. The unwashed activated carbon comes out of the kiln which has more iron and ash content. If it is washed with acid the ash and iron content in the activated carbon is reduced.

The unwashed activated carbon is widely used in removing color, odor, and other unwanted impurities. The unwashed activated carbon is mostly used in liquid-phase applications. High-quality unwashed activated carbon is an excellent de-colorizer, and deodorizer and has effective purification properties. 

Powdered activated carbon is used in drinking water process due to its characteristics of absorbent. Also, it effectively removes organisms and particles from water. The product is used in the activation process in which the super-heated steams act with the charcoal and make spaces in the already porous charcoal. We are also one of the leading granular activated carbon suppliers in India.

FAQs About Unwashed Activated Carbon

What Is Unwashed Activated Carbon, and How Does It Differ from Other Varieties?

Unwashed activated carbon, sometimes referred to as raw or untreated activated carbon, is the initial product obtained after activation. Unlike washed or acid-washed activated carbon, it doesn't undergo additional purification processes. Unwashed activated carbon is suitable for applications where a higher ash content is acceptable, such as gold recovery, certain industrial processes, and as a starting material for customized activated carbon products.
