AquaCarb® CX Enhanced Coconut Shell-Based Activated CarbonSource: Evoqua Water Technologies
Evoqua introduces AquaCarb® CX Series coconut shell-based activated carbon, an alternative choice to coal-based carbon for removing disinfection byproducts and tastes/odors from surface waters and high performance VOC removal in groundwater sources.
Evoqua Water Technologies introduces the AquaCarb® CX Series coconut shell-based activated carbons, an addition to the company’s Westates® carbon product line for the North American market. The product can be considered as a performance alternative to coal-based activated carbon for surface water treatment, where taste and odor removal, disinfection byproduct (DBP) or DBP precursor removal, or bulk organic and total organic carbon (TOC) removal are required.
AquaCarb® CX Series carbons have the high microporous structure of coconut shell-based carbon combined with the faster kinetics of bituminous coal-based carbons, resulting in excellent volatile organic carbon (VOC) removal capacity, while also working well in applications where bituminous coal-based carbons have historically been the preferred choice. Our studies have shown that AquaCarb® CX Series carbons exhibit a higher adsorption capacity than coal-based carbon for surface water treatment, with greater throughput before carbon breakthrough. The result is a lower lifecycle cost for the customer, and a lower cost for complying with DBP regulations and managing taste and odor issues.
