Activated Carbon Technology

How the Activated Carbon Filter Works

Activated carbon is produced from carbonaceous sources such as:

Nutshells, coconut husk, wood, and coals

We treat carbon at a very high temperature to open up the pores
and improve its ability to remove gases and organic compounds.

Our activated carbon is highly effective due to its natural ingredients, including coal and coconut shell. What do these materials have to do with filtration?

  • high carbon content allows for thorough adsorption of contaminants
  • durability provides everlasting coverage
  • abundant natural carbon and mircropores adsorb even the smallest impurities

How it works

Activated carbon is porous which means it has a large internal surface area. Impurities bond to pores of activated carbon via electrostatic attraction or chemisorption. Once the bonding sites are full, no additional impurities can be trapped. We use a raw material carbon base with a high carbon content, for optimal odor and chemical adsorption.
