[COLOR=rgb(20.000000%, 20.000000%, 20.000000%)]catalytic granular coconut shell based activated carbon [/COLOR]
AquaSorb® CX-MCA is a catalytic, high activity granular activated carbon manufactured by steam activation of select coconut shell charcoal. The catalytic activity of this activated carbon makes it highly effective for the removal of chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from potable water. Its large micropore volume makes it particularly well suited for the removal of low molecular weight organic compounds and their chlorinated by-products such as chloroform and other trihalomethanes (THMs). An important feature of this material is its superior mechanical hardness and the extensive dedusting during its manufacture ensures an exceptionally clean activated carbon product.
AquaSorb® CX-MCA is an activated carbon with a catalytic activity that is required for liquid phase application involving oxidation, reduction, and decomposition.
