A granular medium material (available in granular, powdered or block form) produced by heating carbonaceous substances (coal) or cellulose bases (wood, coconut shells) in the absence of air. The carbon has a very porous structure and may be used as an adsorbent for organic matter and dissolved gases in water.
Any form of carbon characterised by high adsorptive capacity for gases, vapours or colloidal solids. The carbon or charcoal is produced by destructive distillation of wood, peat, lignite, nutshells, bones, vegetable or other carbonaceous matter, but must be activated by high temperature steam or carbon dioxide which creates a porous particle structure.
Some chemicals are attracted to fine carbon particles which are then filtered out.
A highly absorbent form of carbon, formed primarily from coal and lignite, that absorbs organic compounds. "Activated carbon treatment systems" are used to remove odors and toxic substances from liquid or gaseous emissions.
a highly porous filtering medium prepared by exposing organic materials such as bones to high temperatures and steam; absorbs dissolved organic compounds and large ions such iodide from water.
This is carbon, looking like crumbled charcoal. It can absorb many compounds out of the water, and is especially good at removing yellowing compounds to keep the water clear. Carbon must be changed regularly, as after it has been used for a while, it may leach impurities back into the water.

highly porous granules used to adsorb ( collect on surface) molecules of undesirable substances in water supply.
A material made from burnt wood that is used to remove organic solutes, such as pesticides, and some inorganic solutes, such as chlorine, from water. Dissolved organic solutes are removed from the water by absorption onto the activated carbon. The activated carbon must be periodically replaced when it becomes saturated and unable to absorb any more solutes. Activated carbon is not effective in removing heavy metals, such as lead and salts, which make water hard.
Element used to facilitate the absorption of organic impurities from the water. Coming from lignite (type of wood).
A filter medium used in the aquarium to remove odors, impurities and discoloration (from medications) from aquarium water.
A filtration medium used in the aquarium filter to remove impurities from the water and help maintain clarity. It can also used to absorb fish treatments from the aquarium after the course of treatment is finished. The Carbon should be changed at regular intervals to prevent the Carbon from leaching captured impurities back into the aquarium water.
Highly porous carbon which is an extremely effective adsorbent for fuel oil hydrocarbons, amongst other substance types. Uses include purifying water and air sampling.
Very porous carbon from wood, coal, or lignite heated to very high temperatures to promote active sites where contaminants can be adsorbed from water.
Activated carbon filters absorb impurities from water such as odors, tastes, organic compounds and residual chlorine. Carbon filters also remove radon gas and hydrogen sulfide. Most inorganic chemicals are not removed by these filters.
Charcoal activated by heating to 1472-1652ºF to form a material of high adsorptive gases, vapors, organics, etc. Has a large internal surface area. Removes dissolved color, odor and taste from liquids or gases. Commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry to remove organic contaminants.
A commonly used chemical filter media used to adsorb impurities from the water.
A commonly used chemical filter media, which looks like crumbled charcoal. It can absorb many compounds and chemicals out of the water, such as unused ozone from the air and chlorine from the water and is especially good at removing yellowing compounds to keep the water clear. Carbon must be changed regularly, or it may leach impurities back into the water.
carbon-containing materials such as coconut shells or wood are heated in the absence of oxygen, exposed to steam. and then ground into grains. Activated carbon grains or granules have a great capacity to attract (absorb) organic chemicals and remove them from air or water.
Material used in water conditioning. It is very porous and acts as an absorbent for organic matter and some dissolved gases. Homeowners with carbon filters should pay attention to service and maintenance instructions.
the process of pollutants moving out of water and attaching on to activated carbon.
Carbon that has a highly porous structure to provide filtration of odors and extremely fine particulates
A highly adsorbent form of carbon used to remove odors and toxic substances from liquid or gaseous emissions. In waste treatment, it is used to remove dissolved organic matter from waste drinking water. It is also used in motor vehicle evaporative control systems.
A special carbon in powdered or grainy form that attracts and holds organic molecules. It is often used to remove dissolved contaminants./dd
chemically treated and heated carbon which has the ability to absorb gold
Used in the aquarium filter to remove impurities from the water and keep it clear. It is also used to absorb and remove medicines used in the aquarium after the treatment is finished. Carbon should be changed regularly to keep it from leaching impurities back into the water.
Granulated activated carbon used to remove tastes, odor, chlorine, chloramines, and some organics from water.
Specially processed carbon used as a filter drier ; commonly used to clean air.
A filter medium which absorbs chemical pollutants
Carbon that is structurally processed and has been activated for adsorption by steaming or by heating in a vacuum
Particles or granules of carbon used in water treatment because of their high capacity to selectively remove certain trace and soluble materials. Usually obtained by heating a carbon source (such as wood).
Adsorptive particles or granules of carbon usually obtained by heating carbon (such as wood). These particles or granules have a high capacity to selectively remove certain trace and soluble materials from water.
Solid carbon, which is used to adsorb impurities from the water - fresh or marine, and keep, it clear. It is also used to absorb and remove medicines used in the aquarium after the treatment is finished. The carbon should be changed regularly to keep it from leaching impurities back into the water.
A form of carbon specially formulated for filtration. Carbon is good for removing a large number of toxins and other unwanted substances from aquarium water. it is especially useful for clearing or "polishing" cloudy water. One problem with carbon is that is can release phosphate into the water, which stimulated algae growth.
A highly porous form of carbon used for adsorption of organics and reduction of free chlorine.
A granular material usually produced by the roasting of cellulose base substances, such as wood or coconut shells, in the absence of air. It has a very porous structure and is used in water conditioning as an adsorbent of organic matter and certain dissolved gases. Sometimes called "activated charcoal".
This product helps in absorbing impurities out of your water. Carbon typically has a short life span and should be replaced periodically in order to keep it from leaching these impurities back into the water.
carbon which has been chemically treated to improve its adsorption properties and filtration capacity
a solid adsorbent material that is used to remove organic pollutants from liquid or gas streams
A water treatment medium, found in block, granulated, or powdered form, which is produced by heating carbonaceous substances (bituminous coal or cellulose-based substances such as wood or coconut shell) to 700 degrees C or less in the absence of air to form a carbonized char, and then activating (oxidizing) at 800 to 1000 degrees C with oxidizing gases such as steam and carbon dioxide (oxygen is never used as the oxidizing gas because its reaction with the carbon surface is too rapid and violent) to form pores, thus creating a highly porous adsorbent material.
Activated Carbon is a specially treated carbon that has been exposed to heat around 800-900 degrees Celsius. The great thing about activated carbon is that it has a large internal surface area and can trap a lot of impurities inside it. Activated carbon is most commonly seen in simple tap water filters and fish tank filters, but is also used in some small air filters and has even been used in cigarette butts.
Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal or activated coal, is a general term which covers carbon material mostly derived from charcoal. For all three variations of the name, "activated" is sometimes substituted with "active". By any name, it is a material with an exceptionally high surface area.
