Liquid Phase Carbon Media

liquid phase carbon

Riley Equipment carries a complete line of activated carbon media, in a variety of mesh sizes for most liquid phase application. This type of activated carbon is typically made from coal or coconut shell, and is used for environmental remediation applications and removal of solvents or chemicals by adsorption.

Coconut based media is widely used for surface water treatment and provides excellent performance for contaminants and offers a broad range of concentrations. Coconut filter media offers a higher capacity to adsorb small molecular compounds and provides a natural renewable source for activated carbon. Coal based activated carbon is more suited for the liquid filtration of oils and other liquids. Smaller mesh sizes are suitable for units with lower flow rates, while larger mesh sizes offer better pressure drop characteristics.
