Coconut shell activated carbon is mainly pores in the microporous range. There are micropores in the surface area of coconut shell activated carbon of almost 85% to 90%. These small pores match the size of the contaminant molecules in the drinking water and are therefore very efficiently captured.
Peat and wood activated carbon are mostly mesopores and macropores, suitable for the capture of larger molecules. The pore structure of coal is between the coconut shell and the charcoal base.
Macroscopic pores are considered to be entry points for micropores. Unless the pores have a large surface area of 400 m2/g or more, the mesopores usually do not play an important role in adsorption.
The advantages of micropores in Coconut shell activated carbon make it denser in structure, have good mechanical strength and hardness, and have high friction and wear resistance.
Some other characteristics of the carbon industry, such as the advantages of coconut charcoal, are as follows:
Coconut is a renewable carbon source
Coconuts grow throughout the year and harvest 3-4 times a year.
Coconut trees can be preserved for many years.
In general, activated carbon plays a very important role in the purification of drinking water.
In summary, the main points of carbon are as follows:
Adsorption of THM and other disinfection by-products
Adsorption of pesticides and herbicides
Remove halogen from water
Improve the appearance of drinking water
Improve the taste of water
