AquaCarb® 816 and 820 Coal-Based Granular Activated Carbons

High activity granular activated carbons manufactured from selected grades of bituminous coal.
​AquaCarb® 816 and 820 carbons are utilized in upgrading existing anthracite coal and sand filtration plants. These carbons have demonstrated to be an excellent media for the adsorption of dissolved organics, taste and odor compounds and have the ability to enhance biodegradation of organics.

  • Dechlorination/chloramine reduction
  • Removal of organic contaminants
  • Taste and odor reduction
  • Disinfection by-product (DBP) removal
  • Drinking water treatment
  • Biological activated carbon (BAC) support​
