Aquacarb 607C 14x40 Granular Activated Carbon 25 kg

Artnumber: 607C1440
Article: 607C1440

Aquacarb 607C 14x40 is an extremely pure and highly active activated carbon designed for fine treatment of drinking and process water of high purity, as well as for purification of carbon dioxide in the food industry. It is produced from special sorts of coconut shell, then washed with acid to remove contaminants, and neutralized with distilled water. High purity of the media and neutral pH prevent secondary contamination of the treatment phases.  

Aquacarb 607C 14x40 corresponds to the EN12915 standards, possesses the KIWA ATA Certificate and is approved by the UK Drinking Water Inspectorate.

Key advantages:

  • excellent adsorption characteristics

  • high purity - no fine particles or dust

  • high mechanical resistance provides effective regeneration

  • stable efficiency after multiple backwashing cycles provides longer service life

The Chemviron Carbon Aquacarb 607C 14x40 filter media is intended for purification of water from chlorine and chlorine organic compounds, and removal of foreign tastes and odors from the water. Implementation of the media as a pre-filtering agent provides protection of ion exchange resins and reverse osmosis membranes. The main area of its application lies in the commercial water treatment, the food industry and the production of electronic components.

Wet activated carbon selectively removes oxygen from the air. To avoid a hazardous situation, long-term storage of the media in enclosed spaces or containers is not allowed.
