CENTAUR® 12x40 Catalytic Granular Activated Carbon Datasheet

Source: Calgon Carbon Corporation

CENTAUR 12x40 is a unique catalytic activated carbon that can be utilized in the liquid phase for the promotion of oxidation, reduction, decomposition, substitution, and elimination reactions. Specific applications include chloramines and hydrogen sulfide removal from potable, process and other waters and peroxide destruction.

The catalytic activity and enhanced adsorption ability makes CENTAUR 12x40 a good performer in other applications such as the treatment of process water in the bottling and soft drink industries and in treating aquarium water.

CENTAUR 12x40 is a liquid phase virgin activated carbon produced from bituminous coal using a patented process. Although it is not impregnated with metals or alkali, it displays the catalytic functionality of these materials.

The product is unique in that it concentrates reactants via adsorption and then promotes their reaction on the surface of the pores. In most cases CENTAUR 12x40 can be reactivated and does not present the disposal concerns associated with impregnated carbons.
