Carbon Filtration System

Activated carbon can remove and destroy residual disinfectants (chlorine and chloramine) through a catalytic reduction reaction. This is a chemical reaction that involves a transfer of electrons from the activated carbon surface to the residual disinfectant. In other words, activated carbon acts as a reducing agent.Granular activated carbon filtration (GAC) is a method of purification that uses activated carbon to purify liquid and gas by the process of adsorption, whereby molecules of a solute, liquid, or gas are trapped on the surface of a solid or liquid. Activated carbon is an ideal material for a wide range purification types since it has a very high internal surface area and can be employed in several different applications such as removing foul taste, odor, and hazardous chemicals.
