Main Mechanism Of Activated Carbon

The activated carbon is a hydrophobic adsorbent prepared from carbon-containing solid material and activated by High-temperature carbonization and activation. Activated carbon contains a large number of micro-pores, has a huge specific surface area, can effectively remove the chroma, odor, can remove most of the two-level effluent of organic pollutants and some inorganic substances, containing certain toxic heavy metals.

Activated carbon can effectively adsorb chlorinated hydrocarbons, organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides, and can adsorb benzene ether, N-Nitro-Chlorobenzene, naphthalene, ethylene, xylene phenol, phenol, DDT, aldrin, alkyl benzene sulfonic acid and many esters and aromatic compounds. Secondary effluent also contains not activated carbon adsorption of organic matter, such as the intermediate degradation of protein, than the original organic matter is more difficult to be activated carbon adsorption, activated carbon on the removal of THMs is lower, only to reach 23-60%.
