Activated Carbon Filtration System
Industrial Wastewater Treatment CA
Karbonous manufactures high-quality activated carbon for portable water filter systems in California, also known as Activated Carbon Filtration Systems.

Industrial Wastewater Treatment – City of Industry, CA

Carbon is one of the most used materials in water filtration processes and makes a complete and efficient activated carbon filtration system. Almost every type of water filter uses activated carbon; common methods include backpacking water filter, pitcher filter, shower filter, refrigerator filter, reverse osmosis water filtration system, or whole-house filter.

In the manufacturing process, we heat the raw carbon to 1000 degrees Celsius in the absence of oxygen. It helps bake all the impurities from the carbon. To produce activated carbon, the material is then heated up to 1600 degrees Celsius. The steam leaves granules within the carbon filled with cracks and pores, allowing them to store/adsorb contaminants and chemicals in a large amount.

Our Manufactured Activated Carbon Filtration System Works Excellently

Our activated carbon filtration system removes contaminants and chemicals through the process called adsorption. Adsorption is the process in which the surface of the activated carbon holds the contaminants like a magnet and does not allow them to escape out of the pores of the activated carbon.

The carbon filter system also acts as a catalyst that alters the chemical structure and composition of chemicals and contaminants. Activated carbon is the epitome for eliminating organic and inorganic compounds and elements, such as chlorine, pesticides, THMs like chloroform, and various VOCs, including components of gasoline, industrial cleaners, and other solvents.

What is a Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) Water Filter System?

Granular Activated Carbon Water Filter System is commonly called GAC, made of loose and tiny carbon granules. Mostly, GAC filters are generally used as a “polishing filter” during the filtration of water. These filters are highly effective in removing the odor and improve the taste of drinking water. Besides, Granular Activated Carbon also helps industrial wastewater treatment in City of Industry, CA.

What Do GAC Water Filters Remove?

Granular activated carbon has a property to adsorb and eliminate contaminants. These contaminants include:

  • VOCs
  • Hydrogen sulfide
  • Nitrates, pesticides
  • And much more

Municipal water filtration plants use disinfectants, such as chloramine and chlorine, for treating water before supply. However, these disinfectants leave an odor in drinking water and also change the taste. This is where Karbonous plays its role, intruding GAC filter systems that improve taste and remove odor. This property of Granular Activated Carbon makes it commonly used in RO (Reverse Osmosis) systems.

The granular activated carbon water filter consists of loose carbon granules so that the water can easily flow freely through it. Note, high value of porosity enables the water to flow or pass more than carbon block filters. Subsequently, GAC filters also have high adsorption properties to eliminate chemicals, such as hydrogen sulfide, chlorine, lead, and much more.

Benefits of Activated Carbon Filtration System in Industrial Applications

Filtration is essential to numerous industrial processes and is utilized in virtually all of them. It’s a crucial stage in manufacturing processes for the automotive, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, and coatings industries, as well as building services, water treatment, oil and gas, nuclear, and closed systems industries. Manufacturing may be made easier and more cost-effective with the use of industrial filtration systems, as well as possibilities to incorporate cutting-edge, environmentally responsible methods. They can capture undesirable particles as well as desired components for use later in the manufacturing process. These systems are excellent at preventing contamination damage to equipment such as pumps, meters, compressors, valves, traps, and filters.

Are you looking for high-quality portable and industrial water purification or filtration system? Karbonous is the right choice. Don’t wait any longer and call us right away to place your order.

Do you use adsorption process to remove unwanted substances?

Yes. Karbonous Inc uses the Adsorption process to eliminate chemicals and contaminants in the filtration. The surface of activated carbon strongly binds the contaminants so that it doesn’t exhibit the pollutants out of the pores of the activated carbon.

Although Chlorine and Chloramine are not toxic to humans, why are these disinfectants not the best option for water treatment?

Chlorine and Chloramine are certainly not good suitable for water treatment since they have unpleasant odor and taste. However, Karbonous INC offers GAC (Granular Activated Carbon) filter systems that remove the unpleasant odor and normalize the taste.
