Liquid Phase Carbon Treatment Equipment and Systems

About Liquid Phase Carbon Treatment and Systems 

Liquid Phase Carbon Treatment Equipment and Systems filter and remove contaminants from liquid streams for industrial, municipal or commercial applications.  Ground or surface water is pumped through one or more vessels containing activated carbon to which dissolved organic contaminants adsorb.  When the contaminant level in the carbon bed reaches the saturation point, the carbon is removed and regenerated at an off-site facility or removed and disposed.

The frequency of activated carbon exchange will depend on operating parameters that affect carbon loading such as flowrate, contaminant type, contaminant concentration, carbon type (coconut shell or coal) and other factors.

Products and Services

Evoqua Water Technologies understands how important it is for your carbon adsorption equipment to operate reliably, economically and within environmental compliance.  That is why we offer a wide range of products and support services to meet your needs.  From spent carbon reactivation​ to analytical testing in our state-of-the-art laboratory facility, Evoqua has the right services for your system and budget—and we do it all while giving you piece of mind that your liability is minimized and compliance is ensured. 

Evoqua offers a Turnkey Carbon Program for systems that are permanent and hard-piped.  Our service crew mobilizes on site to remove, package, label and transport the spent carbon in UN/D.O.T.-approved containers.  Inspection of the vessel interior and internal distributors is conducted and minor repairs are made.  The adsorber is refilled with high quality activated carbon and the spent carbon is transported to our reactivation facilities.  

Our Adsorber Exchange Program is a simple and cost effective way to handle your removable adsorber equipment tanks.  When the activated carbon has reached the end of its useful service life and the activated carbon inside is "spent," your local Evoqua Westates technician delivers fresh carbon tanks to your site.  We assist with the spent carbon profiling and acceptance procedures necessary for removal and reactivation of your spent carbon.

We feature Westates® activated carbon media for liquid phase applications. We also offer state-of-the-art computer modeling programs, for carbon consumption estimates and optimization of system performance.​​
