UltraCarb® 1240AW Coal-Based Granular Activated Carbon

Acid washed, coal-based carbon ideally suited to efficiently purify and/or decolorize many aqueous and organic liquids.
​UltraCarb® 1240AW activated carbon is a 12 x 40 mesh size, high activity granular activated carbon manufactured from selected grades of coal and activated under rigidly controlled conditions by high temperature steam activation. The resulting product has a unique pore size distribution, low density, and high adsorption capacity. The product is also acid washed to provide low ash content and chemical stability, while remaining pH neutral.
