Component of the best activated charcoal

Mar 16, 2016

 Component of the best activated charcoal:Activated carbon is also called activated carbon black. It is an amorphous carbon black powder or granular, massive, honeycomb, it also has a regular array of carbon crystal. Activated carbon in addition to elemental carbon, it also contains two types of admixture: a class is combined with chemical elements, it is mainly of hydrogen and oxygen. These elements is due to incomplete carbonization residue in carbon, or in the activation process, foreign non carbon elements and activated carbon surface chemical binding, such as water vapor activation, the surface of activated carbon by oxidation or steam oxidation; another kind of admixture is ash, it is the inorganic part of activated carbon; ash in activated carbon could easily lead to secondary pollution.

   Component of the best activated charcoal:In the elemental composition, above 80%-90% of the best activated charcoal is composed of carbon, which is the reason for the hydrophobic active carbon adsorbent. Activated carbon in addition to elemental carbon, it also contains two types of admixture: a class is combined with chemical elements, mainly oxygen and hydrogen. These elements is due to incomplete carbonization residue in carbon, or in the activation process, non carbon elements and activated carbon surface chemistry to binding, such as water vapor activation, the surface of activated carbon by oxidation or steam oxidation; another kind of admixture is ash, it is the inorganic part of activated carbon, consisting of several kinds of activated carbon elements. With the continuous development of activated carbon industry, more and more industries and enterprises to use the activated carbon, there are also some enterprises to enter the active carbon industry.

   Component of the best activated charcoal:Granular activated carbon is often applied to molecular adsorption, granular activated carbon adsorption decision application, and the adsorption and the pore size distribution of carbon.
   Component of the best activated charcoal:Using chemical activation of granular activated carbon is very porous and multi micropore and mesopore range, however, more water vapor activation activated carbon, chemical activation of activated carbon pore surface is less hydrophobic and more negatively charged.
