CC-12x40S Granular Activated Carbon


CC-12x40S is a virgin activated carbon which is granular in form. Made from selected grades of coconut shell, it is ideal for many liquid phase applications including the removal of organics from water streams. Its superior level of hardness and low levels of impurities make it cleaner than most other carbons and gives it longer life expectancy. NSF certified, it is suitable for drinking water and food grade applications.


CC-12x40S is available in 55 lb. bags or 1,100 lb. bulk bags. Other sizes available upon request.
