About Granular Activated Carbon​
While the term GAC (Granular Activated Carbon or Granulated Activated Carbon) is commonly used, it can refer to dozens of slightly different adsorbents. GAC is activated carbon with particle sizes predominantly greater than 80 mesh. The combination of raw materials, methods, and degree of activation produce activated carbons can each perform optimally in various applications. Evoqua’s offering of Granular Activated Carbons is a very versatile group of adsorbents, with capability for selectively adsorbing thousands of organic, and certain inorganic, materials to meet all your water purification needs.

​​Selecting the Proper Carbon for Your Application
The selection of the most cost-effective activated carbon for an application is best made by developing an understanding of the requirements of the application and matching them with the physical and adsorptive properties of the activated carbon. Choosing the proper carbon media for your application improves carbon performance, increases the time between carbon exchanges, and helps minimize operating costs.
