CC-ORGANICS Activated Carbon


CC-ORGANICS is an acid coconut based activated carbon. Made from selected grades of coconut shell and then acid washed, it is ideal for many liquid phase applications including the removal of dissolved organics from water, wastewater and industrial process streams. These contaminants include taste and odour compounds, organic colour, total organic carbon (TOC) and industrial chemicals such as chlorinated solvents (TCE, PCE). The pore structure enables it to be used for adsorption of both high and low molecule weight impurities from waters and liquids. This carbon is especially effective for adsorbing trace organic compounds such as vinyl chloride, methylene chloride, MTBE and THM’s/disinfection by-products.

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.
