Granular Activated Carbon - GAC 8x30

Filtration Media

CETCO’s GAC 8x30 is a granular reactivated carbon made from select grades of bituminous coal. The activation process develops pores of molecular dimensions within the carbon particle giving the GAC extremely high internal porosity and surface area.

Application
Liquid phase applications where high surface area is needed for maximum adsorption

Features & Benefits
• Porous material manufactured from carbonaceous raw
  materials
• Meets ANSI/AWWA B-604 standards
• Suitable for hydraulic transfers and multiple thermal reactivation cycles
• Surface areas are in the range of 500 – 2,000 m2/g
