Our Activated Carbon products are extensively tested to ensure the products meet the highest quality standards set forth by Prominent Systems.

Activated carbon can be derived from various organic based materials such as coconut shell, coal, wood, and other raw materials. The performance of Activated Carbon depends upon the raw material used and pore structure.

WP_20150408_14_24_08_ProThese raw materials become Activated Carbon by undergoing a special hydrothermal process which involves heating the material nearly 2000˚F in a controlled environment, which is “activation.”  Water vapor at high temperature chisels out tunnels in the raw material carbon, creating “pores.”

Organic compounds from liquids and gases are removed using Activated Carbon Products through “adsorption” process where contaminant molecules in liquid or air streams attracted into the surface of the pores of Activated Carbon as they flow through.

Each carbon type has it’s unique pore structure suitable for various applications.
