The benefits of applying carbon technologies

Oct. 3, 2014

BIRMINGHAM— In a previous Water Technology article, we wrote about carbon filtration systems.

BIRMINGHAM — In the article, “Extending the life of activated carbon,” featured in a previous issue of Water Technology, we discuss the basics of activated carbon, how to extend the lifespans of these technologies and how to effectively implement carbon systems to not only save a significant amount of time and money, but to also successfully achieve optimal filtration results.

In the article, experts explain how carbon is effective at removing a variety of contaminants, including:

  • Residual chlorine and monochloramine
  • Taste and odor causing, organic contaminants
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Trihalomethanes (THMs) and other halocarbons
  • Endocrine disrupting compounds (pharmaceuticals, personal care products, etc.)
  • Chloramine, hydrogen sulfide and hydrogen peroxide (removed by catalytic carbons).

Carbon can come in a range of forms, from granular activated carbon to carbon block, and can be made from an array of materials.
