Centaur HSL 12x40 is a bituminous granular activated carbon produced according to the patented technology. It is used to reduce a content of hydrogen sulfide in domestic, commercial and industrial water treatment.
Centaur 12x40 corresponds to the EN12915 standards, possesses the KIWA ATA Certificate and is approved by the UK Drinking Water Inspectorate.
excellent catalytic properties - acceleration of chemical reactions
high adsorption capacity - not only the outer layer is activated, but the whole bead
stable high quality provided by the production technology and uniformity of beads
high mechanical resistance provides effective regeneration
capability to fast wetting and absence of floating particles provided by the agglomerated structure of the carbon
Centaur is a combination of fine pore structure for enhanced adsorption of trace contaminants and high catalytic activity for their elimination.
High mechanical resistance provides effective backwash regeneration.
