Dust elimination, milling and impregnation
The post-processing of activated carbon is recommended when applications pose particularly tough requirements, as in air pollution control, in the chemical, pharmaceutical or foodstuff industry or in the household appliance industry. Precise dust elimination, milling and impregnation of activated carbons are traditional components of the CarboTech service spectrum. The capabilities of CarboTech in these sectors are outstanding, and can of course also be utilized for contracted services.
In pharmaceutical and many end-consumer applications such as potable water filters or household appliances, particularly challenging requirements apply to the dust-free state of activated carbons. This is the reason why CarboTech invested in high-efficiency dust elimination technology several years ago, and now provides customized solutions for a wide spectrum of requirements.
Powdered activated carbons are indispensable in a wide variety of applications, but the “right” grain distribution is usually crucial, and this can only be evaluated and implemented by a partner benefitting from many years of experience. CarboTech operates its own milling plants that implement both customized particle size distribution and special blends, in turn enabling especially cost-efficient solutions.
The adsorption capacity of activated carbon can be considerably increased with impregnation. CarboTech has integrated numerous types of impregnations into the manufacturing process. Examples are impregnations of activated carbons with sulphur, mercury, potassium iodide or potassium carbonate.
