48C carbon maximizes its geometric surface area, significantly increasing surface and pore diffusion rates and thereby increasing its effectiveness for the adsorption of VOCs with a short contact time. The very high surface area and predominately microporous pore size distribution further enhance the effectiveness of this coconut shell based carbon.
In addition, VOCarb carbons also have a high retentivity to hold onto and prevent desorption of previously adsorbed organic compounds. The granular shape of VOCarb 48C carbon results in excellent gas contacting but still allows the carbon bed to operate at a relatively low pressure drop. The high density and superior hardness of VOCarb 48C carbon provides excellent resistance to dust and fines formation.
