Coconut Shell Based Steam Activated Carbon has been prepared by a two-step process which includes carbonization of raw material and then enlarging its pore structure. It is known to have numerous minute openings of different diameter sizes in which contaminants get trapped. This carbon is widely utilized for manufacturing of water & air filters for having ability to eliminate unpleasant odor from both of them. It is greatly admired for having long life and complete reliability. Coconut Shell Based Steam Activated Carbon also finds application in refining of bleaching oil, processing of cooking oil, for solvent recovery, and chemical purification as well.
Coconut shell is one of the main base materials of activated carbon, whose hardness make the product highly abrasion resistant and its foam created due to high carbon content increases the product's absorption capacity. The coconut shells are processed to form granular char or charcoal. When it comes to dusty, coconut shell based steam activated carbon are the least amongst all. And in terms of hardness, this tops the positions amongst all. This is an ideal product to purify water.
