Product Description

Granular activated carbons are generally made up of Coconut Shells on bituminous coal or lignite, petroleum coke. This is utilized in constant procedure in areas such as water treatment(effluent & drinking water), removal of mercury from solvent recovery, gold recovery, effluents or alkali cells, removal of odour, as catalyst carrier, gas masks, for dechlorination of water, separation & purification of gases, dry cleaning, kitchen hoods, so on.

Shauren Valour produce and supply premium quality Granular Activated Carbon in India as well as Overseas markets especially Middle East & Africa.

Coal, Coconut Shell, Wood, Rice Husk, Saw Dust of different kinds and various other carbonaceous substances are heated in the absence of Oxygen to remove water and other volatile matter. In this process, commonly known as Pyrolysis; a Carbon rich black residue is obtained - Charcoal.

This Charcoal is put to Siftering, Screening, Cleaning, Acid washing, Neutralization, Drying, Activation, Crushing, Sizing, Separation, Grinding etc...in order to produce THE "ACTIVATED CARBON". 

Activation evolves macro/meso/micro Pores within the material. The high level of Porosity enhances the property known as "Adsorption" of impurities. Acid washing followed by Neutralization is further an addition to improve its quality & finishing for various regular applications as shown below.

Iodine Adsorption Value (IAV)

This is the most important activity measure. Normally the approved range is from 500 mg/g to 1100 mg/g. In some typical uses it may exceed upto 1200 mg/g and above. The higher the number the better is the porosity resulting into finer adsorption of pollutants present in Water & various other Fluids, Edibles, Chemicals, Metals, Minerals and Air, hence the proper is the Activation. Measured as _ _ _ mg of Iodine is adsorbed per g of Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) when soaked in Iodized Salt and Water Solvent (Aqueous Solution). Iodine Adsorbed in the pores indicates the pore volume available for adsorption of impurities.

Hardness. Above 88% of the hardness is considered good. Coal based GAC hold 90% to 92% hardness while the Coconut Shell based GAC hold 98% and above hardness. In the process of various kinds of Filtration the Granules are pushed & pulled, forced forward & reversed, washed & back washed thus hardness of the grains should be good so that they are not broken easily & can be contained in there bed in spite of moving out affecting the flow process and loss of bed strength. Hardness more technically can be referred as Abrasion Resistance. Higher the Hardness more is the Abrasion number. 

Ash content. It is a measure of Non-Carbon content in Activated Carbon. This parameter mainly depends upon the base from which Granules are being produced. Ash content vary from various Alkali Earth Metals to Heavier Metals.
