CC-A40 Pelletized Activated Carbon


CC-A40 is a virgin activated carbon. Derived from bituminous coal, it is pelletized in form. Its superior activity and surface area make it ideal for most vapor-phase applications. The uniformity of its shape makes it particularly attractive in applications where low pressure drop is a consideration.

CC-A40 is available in 55 lb. bags or 1,100 lb. bulk bags. Other sizes available upon request.

Wet activated carbon removes oxygen from air, causing a severe hazard to workers inside carbon vessels. Confined space/low oxygen procedures should be put in place before any entry is made. Such procedures should comply with all applicable local, state and federal guidelines.
