Active carbon is a carbonaceous skeleton with a vast and branched porous structure capable of trapping organic compound molecules. lts capability of attracting and trapping in its porous structure the organic compound molecules dispersed in a fluid (liquid or gaseous) with which the active carbon comes into contact is known as ADSORPTION and is regulated by well-determined physical laws.
TC40 is a physically activated granular active carbon of vegetable origin. This product is suitable for use in the gaseous phase to purify the air coming from production departments and hence containing traces of volatile substances or products of decomposition or from chemical plants, refrigerator deposits of food products, to limit the emission into the atmosphere of solvents from painting plants, and to purify the conditioned air in offices, airports, motor vehicles and urban transport means.
lt can also be used for kitchen and laboratory extraction hood filters and deodorising filters for refrigerators, shoe cupboards and deep-fryers.
This active carbon can thermally be reactivated once its adsorbent activity is exhausted.
IMPREGNATED ACTIVE CARBON FOR SPECIAL APPLICATIONS
Exhausted active carbons can be disposed of as special waste. THE CER CODE FOR HAZARDOUS WASTE IS 190110. Otherwise, they can be reactivated with a heat treatment by means of special structures: the most widely used and most efficient heat reactivation technology today is based on heat treatment of exhausted carbons in rotary ovens.
