CENTAUR® HSLSource: Calgon Carbon Corporation
CENTAUR® HSL is a liquid phase virgin activated carbon that has been manufactured to enhance catalytic functionality. The product is unique in that it concentrates reactants via adsorption and then promotes their reaction on the surface of the carbon pores. CENTAUR HSL is produced from bituminous coal using a patented process. Although it is not impregnated with transition metals or alkali, CENTAUR HSL displays the catalytic function of impregnated materials but does not present a disposal problem. CENTAUR HSL provides a combination of low pressure drop, moderate kinetics, and good resistance to attrition. Thermal reactivation is an option for recycling and reuse of this product thereby minimizing costs and eliminating disposal concerns.
