An activated carbon filter is just like the pressure Sand filter, is a tertiary treatment unit. It gets the water that is already filtered by way of the press Sand clear out and improves multiple nice parameters of the water: BOD, COD, clarity (turbidity), color and scent.
This filter uses the adsorption action of activated carbon. Activated carbon is normally made from coconut shell or charcoal, the “activation” process growing a particularly porous cloth with a totally huge surface location. organic pollutant molecules are physically adsorbed and held speedy within the catacomb-like porous shape of the activated carbon. Granular activated carbon is usually used for this purpose. The water filtered by way of the pressure Sand filter enters the Activated Carbon clear out. not like inside the case of the sand filter, trapped molecules inside the carbon cannot be backwashed and got rid of. subsequently, activated carbon within the clear out has a finite potential to adsorb and maintain the pollutants, and then the carbon is said to be exhausted. The exhausted fabric is removed from the filter and disposed off: clean activated carbon is charged within the filter out
Activated Carbon Filter
Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, using chemical absorption.
Activated carbon filters are most effective at removing chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), taste and odor from water.
