Q&A. Following troubled times, Jim Cederna was called upon to help transform Calgon Carbon into the prosperous venture that it once was.
Granular activated carbon (GAC) is commonly used for removing organic constituents and residual disinfectants in water supplies. This not only improves taste and minimizes health hazards, it protects other water treatment units such as reverse osmosis membranes and ion exchange resins from possible damage due to oxidation or organic fouling. Activated carbon is a favored water treatment technique because of its multifunctional nature and the fact that it adds nothing detrimental to the treated water.
Conclusion of Activated Carbon Regeneration
All AC applications end up with exhausted (spent) AC. This article will run in two parts and will touch on some considerations of generating spent AC and its regeneration
Activated carbon is like a radio: everyone knows it works, but few people know exactly how. This article is a brief summary of the sources of carbons, the activation process, the principle of adsorption, and the range of current applications.
