Inventories are maintained for immediate delivery. We also stock specialty medias such as Organoclay (see table below). We provide technical expertise for the following applications and more:

  • Groundwater and Soil Remediation
  • Industrial Air Pollution Control
  • Solvent Recovery
  • Public and Private Portable Water
  • Industrial and Municipal Wastewater

Following are specifications for two of our more popular carbon types. The first type is used for aqueous-phase environmental applications, especially where high iron content and biological activity may be suspected. Typical applications include dissolved VOC removal for contaminants such as BTEX and chlorinated compounds.

Coal-Based Virgin 8x30 sieve carbon

Physical Properties

Iodine Number, (mg/ml (minimum) 900
Molasses Number, (minimum) 200
Abrasion Number,  (minimum) 70
Moisture, wt. % as packed (maximum) 2
US Standard Sieve Size Greater than No. 8   Less than No. 30 -  5%
Apparent Density (minimum) 0.47

This carbon is popular for adsorption of VOC’s (such as BTEX and chlorinated compounds) in vapor applications. Typical applications include soil-vapor extraction and air-stripper off-gas treatment. Optimum operating parameters are between 75-125 F and below 50% relative humidity.  The larger sieve size allows for lower restrictive pressure drop through the carbon bed.
