Carbofil™ Active Carbon Filters

Activated carbon, a porous substance with strong physical adsorbtion properties, has the highest volume of adsorbing porosity of any material known.

By carbonisation and activation, activated carbon can be made from many substances containing high carbon content such as coal, wood, bamboo and coconut shells.

Activated carbon filters are widely applied in industrial process and civil use as the most efficient method of removing odours, chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOC), colours, tastes and other contaminants from fluids.

The Porvair Carbofil™ series is the new generation of carbon cartridges produced by the extrusion process. They provide long service life and superior adsorption performance compared to conventional granular activated carbon cartridges together with minimum fines. With a high mechanical strength and low ash content, the carbon block structure prevents channelling, bypassing, fluidizing or unloading of carbon fines.

To prevent premature blocking of the activated carbon layer, the Carbofil™ filters incorporate an effective pre-filtration layer designed to intercept gels and large particles.

The Carbofil™ series activated carbon filter cartridges use premium grade coconut shell extruded carbon blocks and can be supplied in any length and end cap configuration, to meet the requirements of the process application.
