Differences Between Anthracite and Activated Carbon

If you’re looking for a way to remove unwanted molecules from a solution, GAC (granular activated carbon) is the way to go! Agglomerations of PAC (powdered activated carbon) particles make up this specially processed carbon, and its unique pore structure allows it to selectively remove certain molecules while leaving others behind. We remove the molecules by adsorption onto the surface of the carbon particles, followed by diffusion into and absorption in the pores. And unlike anthracite filter media, GAC doesn’t require precipitation to work – but it does require a re-generation process to remove the matter inside the pores. So, if you’re looking for a way to get rid of those pesky molecules, GAC is the perfect solution!

Granular triggered carbon (GAC) typically is a natural carbon filtering media — timber, coconut coverings, coal or peat — utilized for sprinkle filtration, generally used in a repaired bed application. A filter with GAC can eliminate specific chemicals, especially natural pollutants, from sprinkle. Granular triggered carbon significantly helps with the elimination of per- and polyfluoroalkyl compounds (PFAS), which have ended up being an enhancing pollutant of issue for regulatory authorities. We are not able, as of now, to eliminate various other chemicals, particularly iron and nitrate. GAC alters according to pollutant degrees and sprinkle utilize, as greater degrees or utilize might need more regular change-outs.
