Calgon Carbon created the first granular activated carbon (GAC) from bituminous coal in the 1940s and has staked a position of global industry leadership ever since.
Today, more than 70 years after its founding, remains on the cutting edge of innovation, offering an exceptional range of granulated activated carbon (GAC) and reactivated carbon formulations engineered specifically for the purification of water, air, liquids and gases. Calgon Carbon is proud to provide products that help make pure water and clean air for a better world.
Granular activated carbon is defined as the activated carbon being retained on a 50-mesh sieve. Calgon Carbon produces GACs with a variety of materials, methods and degrees of activation to produce activated carbons designed to meet and exceed the demands of a wide array of applications.
From water treatment to gas phase applications, and from the purification of other aqueous and organic liquids to the treatment of cane sugar liquors and much more — Calgon Carbon offers a wide array of custom-engineered granular activated carbons for a broad range of manufacturing process and environmental applications.
Features & Benefits
The adsorptive capacity of granular activated carbon (GAC) makes it ideal for removing a variety of contaminants from water, air, liquids and gases. GAC is also an environmentally responsible product that can be reactivated through thermal oxidation and used multiple times for the same application.
By varying manufacturing conditions, internal pore structures are created by imparting unique adsorption properties specific to each product type. The choice of product for a specific application will vary due to differing impurities and proprietary process conditions.
