SAAFCarb™ media is a pelletized activated carbon media that removes toxic and impure contaminants from the atmosphere. The activated carbon is produced using selected grades of bituminous coal and steam activated for optimum adsorption capacity.
SAAFCarb™ media removes toxic and impure gases primarily by adsorption. In this process, the gases are held in the pellet pore volume by Van der Waals’ forces, as well as other forces.
There are many quality control tests which are undertaken by SAAFCarb™ media to make sure that the physical can play its own role to achieve the performance designed for this media.
The quality control tests included:
- Apparent Density
- Ball-pan Hardness
- CTC Activity
- Moisture Content
- Pellet Diameter
