Standard Operating Conditions
|Activated carbon (AC) is a natural material derived from coconut shell and is activated by steam and other means. Carbon is very popular due to its ability to correct many water quality problems. |
Bituminous carbon is highly desired for its superior level of hardness; high activity level; trihalomethane removal; and longer life expectancy. Basic coal based granular media
- Improve taste and remove odors
- Dechlorination of water
- Remove color from water
- Removal of organic substances
- Removal of synthetic organic substances
- Clear water for drinking, bathing and cooking!
- Organic Chemicals
- TCE (Trichloroethylene)
- EDB (Ethylene dibromide)
- THM (Trihalomethanes
- Chemical odor
|Service Flow Rate||2-6 gpm/cu ft|
: Service flow rates are calculated at 2-6 gpm/ft3 for standard taste, odor and chlorine removal application using bituminous carbon. Chloramines and TDS applications will require lower service flow rates and longer empty bed contact time or specialized carbon formulations.
