Activated Carbon


(Our factory is located in Chinese Coal City-Datong,Shanxin Province.)

In view of its’widely applications in methane and hydrogen storage, air purification,decaffeination,gold purification,metal extraction,water purification,medicine,sewage treatment,air filters in gas masks and respirators,filters in compressed air, teeth whitening, and many other applications.We invested and expanded our product portfolio to Activated Carbon since July,2018.

Activated carbon is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions.

Industrial applications:

One major industrial application involves use of activated carbon in metal finishing for purification of electroplating solutions. For example, it is a main purification technique for removing organic impurities from bright nickel plating solutions. A variety of organic chemicals are added to plating solutions for improving their deposit qualities and for enhancing properties like brightness, smoothness, ductility, etc. Due to passage of direct current and electrolytic reactions of anodic oxidation and cathodic reduction, organic additives generate unwanted breakdown products in solution. Their excessive build up can adversely affect plating quality and physical properties of deposited metal. Activated carbon treatment removes such impurities and restores plating performance to the desired level.

Medical uses:

Activated carbon is used to treat poisonings and overdoses following oral ingestions.Tablets or capsules of activated carbon are used in many countries as an over-the-counter drug to treat diarrhea,indigestion and flatulence. 

Environmental applications:

Activated Carbon is usually used in water filtration systems.In this illustration,the activated carbon is in the fourth level(Counted from Bottom).Carbon adsorption has numerous applications in removing pollutants from air or water streams both in the field and in industrial processes.Activated carbon is also used for the measurement of radon concentration in air.

Agriculture uses:

Activated carbon is an allowed substance used by organic farmers in both livestock production and wine making. In livestock production it is used as a pesticide, animal feed additive, processing aid, nonagricultural ingredient and disinfectant. In organic winemaking, activated carbon is allowed for use as a processing agent to adsorb brown color pigments from white grape concentrates.

Distilled alcoholic beverage purification:

Activated carbon filters (AC filters) can be used to filter vodka and whiskey of organic impurities which can affect color, taste, and odor. Passing an organically impure vodka through an activated carbon filter at the proper flow rate will result in vodka with an identical alcohol content and significantly increased organic purity, as judged by odor and taste.

Gas purification:

Filters with activated carbon are usually used in compressed air and gas purification to remove oil vapors, odor, and other hydrocarbons from the air. The most common designs use a 1-stage or 2 stage filtration principle in which activated carbon is embedded inside the filter media.

Activated carbon filters are used to retain radioactive gases within the air vacuumed from a nuclear boiling water reactor turbine condenser. The large charcoal beds adsorb these gases and retain them while they rapidly decay to non-radioactive solid species. The solids are trapped in the charcoal particles, while the filtered air passes through.

Chemical purification:

Activated carbon is commonly used on the laboratory scale to purify solutions of organic molecules containing unwanted colored organic impurities.

Filtration over activated carbon is used in large scale fine chemical and pharmaceutical processes for the same purpose. The carbon is either mixed with the solution then filtered off or immobilized in a filter.
