VOCarb® 36C is a high activity, 3 x 6 mesh, granular activated carbon manufactured from selected grades of coconut shell. It is an excellent alternative to 4mm pelletized coal-based activated carbons.
The granular shape of this 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 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 36C results in excellent gas contacting but still allows the carbon bed to operate at pressure drops similar to 4mm pelletized carbons. The high density and superior hardness of VOCarb 36C activated carbon provides excellent resistance to dust and fines formation.
