FILTRASORB 400-M is a granular activated carbon (GAC) developed by Calgon Carbon Corporation for the removal of contaminants from municipal drinking water. These contaminants include taste and odor compounds such as MIB and Geosmin, organic compounds known to be precursors to disinfection byproduct (DBP) formation, DBP compounds such as haloacetic acids and trihalomethanes, contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), such as endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) and pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs), and other targeted organic contaminants.
This activated carbon is manufactured from select grades of bituminous coal through a process known as reagglomeration to produce a durable granular product capable of withstanding the abrasion associated with repeated backwashing, air scouring, hydraulic transport, and thermal reactivation. Activation is carefully controlled as measured by the iodine number for effective adsorption of a broad range of high and low molecular weight organic contaminants. The higher density of FILTRASORB brand GAC results in a product with both a greater adsorptive capacity on a volume basis and a longer life through multiple reactivation cycles.
FILTRASORB 400-M is designed to comply with all the applicable provisions of the AWWA Standard for Granular Activated Carbon, B604, latest edition, the stringent extractable requirements of ANSI/NSF Standard 61, and the Food Chemicals Codex, latest edition.
