Activated carbon is a form of processed carbon that increases the surface area for adsorption. It comes in powdered form commonly called PAC. Powdered Activated Carbon(PAC) is a fine, black porous powder derived from charcoal or coconut husks and commonly used in environmental remediation processes.
Usage of Activated Carbon
Activated carbon can be used in water and wastewater treatment facilities as well as flue gas treatment in various industries to absorb pollutants and to control flue gas emissions. The most common industries that see the usage of Activated Carbon are industries, like wastewater treatment, sewage water treatment, drinking water treatment, heavy metal ministering, etc.
Types of Activated Carbon
Granulated activated carbon
Pelletized activated carbon
Powdered activated carbon
Impregnated activated carbon
Catalytic activated carbon
PAC Storage and Mixing Systems for Industrial Treatments
For ministering heavy metal pollutants, Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC) is known to be the most utilized dry sorbent.
Sodimate supplies complete powdered activated carbon injection systems for dry and semi-wet injection processes from the initial stage to the point of injection of the sorbent. These systems include a silo or bulk bag, a screw feeder, a mechanical discharger, and a pneumatic or powder conveying system to move the PAC to the injection point. For PAC slurry processes Sodimate also supplies a slurry mixing tank, a slurry eductor, and a patented high shear mixer, called the Sodimix, to mitigate dust emissions.
