Granular Activated Carbon - F400, 2 cu. ft

Filtrasorb 400 is a high activity granular activated carbon developed by Calgon Carbon Corporation for the removal of taste and odor compounds and dissolved organic compounds from water treatment.

This activated carbon is manufactured from select grades of bituminous coal to produce a high activity, durable granular product capable of withstanding the abrasion associated with repeated backwashing, air scouring, and hydraulic transport.  Activation is carefully controlled to produce exceptionally high internal surface area with optimum pore size for effective adsorption of a broad range of high and low molecular weight organic contaminants. The product is also formulated to comply with all the applicable provisions of the AWWA Standard for Granular Activated Carbon edition B604-96, the stringent extractable metals requirements of ANSI/NSF Standard 61 and Food Chemicals Codex.

Filtrasorb 400 activated carbon can be used to treat surface and ground water sources for the production of drinking water. This can be used as a complete replacement for sand or anthracite media. Filtrasorb 400 activated carbon function as dual purpose media, providing both filtration and adsorption.

Features Literature


Provides higher hardness relative to other raw materials reducing the generation of fines and product losses during backwashing.

Pore structure provides a wider range of contaminant removal capabilities relative to other starting materials.

Filtrasorb activated carbons are of high density, wet readily, and do not float, thus minimizing loss during backwash operations.

Creates optimal transport paths for faster adsorption.

Generates the hardness and abrasion resistance required for thermal reactivation and minimizes generation of fines in operations requiring backwashing.
