Washed Activated Carbon

Acid Washed Activated Carbon

Acid washed activated carbon is processed through high-degree steam activation under various quality control and acid washed with hydrochloric acid. It is used for the purification of water. Washed activated carbon is also used for the separation of heavy hydrocarbons. Acid washed activated carbon prevents leaching into the condensate as the acid washing separates the silica from the matrix.

Other applications of acid washed activated carbons involve improving the taste of water, removing color and odors from the water, and dechlorination of water. Our washed activated carbon is tough and long lasting. They are porous with high absorption capacity and efficiency. They are neither acidic nor basic. 

To regrade the filter bed and prevent the accumulation of suspended matter, activated carbon requires only occasional backwashing. Even though the activated carbon has an exceptionally high capacity, it needs to be replaced when the filter bed is not working effectively in removing the taste and odor.

Applications and Uses of Washed Activated Carbon

Washed activated carbon is produced by washing the activated carbon with acid to separate water-soluble ash and reduce the total ash content of the carbon. Acid-washed activated carbon is used in water treatment systems, condensate deoiling, and semiconductor process water.

Acid-washed activated carbon is a cost-effective way to maintain the activity of activated carbon. It offers effective and long-term application. It is widely used in water purification, removing contamination from food, pharmaceutical, and beverages. It is also used for swimming pool purifications.

The top benefits of acid washed activated carbon include the removal of bad odors and colors from water, removal of organic substances, and improved taste, and dechlorination of water. Acid-washed activated carbon has a neutral surface, ample internal structure, high hardness, longer operational life, and quick pH stabilization property. 

The main purpose or objective of acid washed activated carbon is to reduce the content of heavy metals presence. The acid washed activated carbon is very useful in home water purification systems and process reverse osmosis systems. The acid washed activated carbon can be used in decolorization of edible fats or industrial fats or decolorization of fructose and glucose. We are also leading supplier of granular activated carbon supplier in India.
