Specification of Activated carbon CMF


Activated carbon or often called activated charcoal is a porous material that serves to absorb objects around it. This material is made from raw materials from animals, plants or minerals that contain carbon such as various types of charcoal (coconut shell charcoal, hard wood, palm shells, pecan shells, corn stalks), some are from coal, bone, bagasse , sawdust etc.

This activated carbon also has quite a lot of benefits, especially for things that might be beyond our expectations. Among others:

filter to purify water, we often find it in refill water depots

gas purification, we often find it on gas cylinders that we use for cooking

beverage industry filters, soft drinks like coca cola use this for their production

pharmacy, in general the hospital uses activated carbon to sterilize disposable medical devices.

Whitening sugar, the dull yellow color of sugar can be removed by using this carbon

Stabilizing sea water, with this carbon, sea water can turn into fresh water

Water filter, this laundry often becomes a soap filter for other purposes. Such as watering plants etc.

Air filters, in workspaces or supermarkets, carbon is used to eliminate the unpleasant odor in the room

To make activated carbon there are two types of processes commonly used by producers. Dry distillation and chemical processes

The process of distillation or high temperature heating is the decomposition of an ingredient that occurs due to the heating process at high temperatures that are processed simultaneously with the flow of steam (hot steam). The equipment needed in this process is a blowwer that is fueled by oil or gas with a temperature of 1000 ° C. the result of this process makes charcoal has a wide pore, in one gram of activated carbon, generally has a surface area of ​​500-1500 m2, making it very effective in capturing very fine particles measuring 0.01-0.0000001 mm. This process is very popular among producers of activated carbon because it is more effective and minimal environmental pollution compared to chemical processes.

In chemical processes, coconut shell charcoal is activated by including chemicals. This activation is the process of breaking the carbon chain from organic compounds with the use of chemicals. Activators used are chemicals such as: alkali metal hydroxide carbonate salts, chloride, sulfate, phosphate from alkaline earth metals and especially ZnCl2, inorganic acids such as H2SO4 and H3PO4. In chemical processes, the quality of activated carbon produced directly proportional to the quality of the chemical used. After the mixing process, the activated carbon is washed and then dried again to the dryer, when the drying process is needed a temperature of about 30 ° C is needed. With a process that is not young, chemical processes are rarely used among active carbon producers.
