Which Activated Carbon Should I use?

Choosing an appropriate carbon for your application can be a daunting task. Whether you’re treating a gas or a liquid, there are many different sizes and types of carbon available. Coal-based, coconut shell-based, or other substrates—choosing the right one for your application is important!

When you’re deciding whether to use carbon to treat a vapor or liquid stream, consider the size of the particles. Smaller particles are good for liquids, which have a shorter distance to travel before they get inside the carbon. Larger particles are best for gases, because they need less pressure drop to overcome their resistance. There are different substrate options available—choose one based on your needs.
