Activated Carbon


Granular activated carbon is made from raw organic material like coconut shells that are high in carbon. Heat in the absence of oxygen is used to activate the surface area of the carbon. The raw material is placed in a tank without oxygen and subjecting it to extremely high temperature of around 900 degrees Celsius. Afterwards the carbon is exposed to chemicals such as Argon and Nitrogen following which it is again placed in the tank and super heated to a temperature of 600 to 1200 degrees Celsius. Activated carbon so obtained is further crushed and sieved to obtain in granular form.


Briquettes are made from Coconut shell charcoal dust, which is otherwise waste and is usually landfilled. This charcoal dust is carefully processed and made into briquettes using food-grade binders. The quality of each briquette and every lot is consistent because we manufacture the raw material in-house. This is the key to our consistency. The heat is uniform throughout its burning time. We use 100% pure charcoal dust and food-grade binders. There are no chemicals or additives used. Therefore it is perfectly safe for barbeque.


Activated charcoal is processed to have small, low volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption. The high degree of microporosity and enhanced adsorption properties make it suitable for various domestic and industrial applications. The activated carbon made in particulate form as a powder has a large surface-to-volume ratio and a small diffusion distance. Powdered activated carbon is made up of crushed or ground carbon particles passed through a designated mesh sieve. It is further pulverized to form powdered carbon.


Pellets are activated carbon compressed into formed cylinders and have a wide variety of uses removing contaminants such as volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and mercury from natural gas as well as controlling odor. Pelletized activated carbon is created by extruding activated carbon into cylindrically shaped pellets with diameters ranging from 0.8 to 5 mm. Their high activity and surface area make it ideal for many vapor phase applications. The uniformity of its shape makes it particularly useful in applications where the low-pressure drop is a consideration.
