Activated carbon, is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Activated carbon is used in:-
Carbon adsorption has numerous applications in removing pollutants from air or water streams both in the field and in industrial processes however ash reduces the overall activity of activated carbon and reduces the efficiency of reactivation. Black Diamond produces a low ash product from high quality anthracite giving our product a competitive advantage. Activated carbon derived from anthracite retains its structure through increased density as a result of heating.
The use of anthracite as an activated carbon offers certain unique characteristics as compared to other carbon sources. This market is still developing new products and uses for activated carbon derived from anthracite.
The 2 grades of anthracite and calcined antharcite can be processed producing different characteristics.
