Virgin Activated Carbon
Exploring The Basics Of Dry Scrubbing Air Purification
Activated carbon is manufactured from organic materials such as bituminous coal, lignite coal, hardwood, or coconut shells.
Organic materials can be processed through thermal activation, oxidation, or chemical activation.
When polluted air is forced through a bed of activated carbon, contaminants will adhere to and be trapped within the pores of activated carbon.
Different organic materials will produce different air pollution control characteristics.
The activation process also effects air pollution qualities.
Bulk density, contaminant removal capacity, pore size, hardness, and surface charge are all contingent on the organic material and the activation process.
