Datasheet: Model 14 Modular Carbon Adsorption VesselSource: Calgon Carbon Corporation
The Calgon Carbon MODEL 14 is an adsorption vessel designed for the removal of dissolved organic contaminants, including disinfection byproducts (DBP) or natural organic matter (NOM) from liquids using granular activated carbon (GAC). The vessel is sized to hold 60,000 pounds of GAC which provides the additional contact time required to remove either compounds at low concentrations or poorly adsorbing compounds. The standard design is a single vessel concept where a number of MODEL 14 vessels are configured for parallel operation. As an option, two vessels can be combined with a centralized pipe manifold to allow for series operation. This flexibility of configurations allows the engineer to select the alternative that best meets the requirements of the site and treatment objectives.
