Calgon Carbon Corporation’s Sentinel® drinking water ultraviolet equipment treats billions of gallons per day of municipal drinking water to protect the public from waterborne pathogens
Custom Reactivation Of Granular Activated Carbon For Drinking Water

Custom Reactivation Of Granular Activated Carbon For Drinking Water

After an activated carbon’s adsorptive capacity has been exhausted, it can be returned to Calgon Carbon for thermal reactivation. In the reactivation process, the spent activated carbon is heated in furnaces devoid of oxygen using steam as a selective oxidant.


Treatment with chlorine is the most common method of providing a biologically safe drinking water supply. But chlorine products remaining in the water after treatment can cause undesirable taste and odor, and may contribute to health problems


FILTRASORB® 820 is a granular activated carbon developed by Calgon Carbon Corporation for the removal of taste and odor compounds, disinfection by-product precursors, and other dissolved organic compounds from potable water
