Activated carbon is an adsorbent and is the general term for substances, whose internal surface is increased in the activation process.
Activated carbon can have strongly varying chemical and physical compositions, and can therefore also have different absorbing characteristics.
Activated carbon is a highly porous form of carbon.
Due to the high number of pores, activated carbon has an unimaginably large surface.
The activated carbon particles (carbon atoms) attract gaseous or liquid particles (molecules), that are surrounding or flowing through the activated carbon.
If the activated carbon is impregnated it is able to neutralise toxins.
We use impregnated granulated carbon for ABEK, AMMONIA, H2S (according with EN14387) and honey comb activated carbon for CAT 4 filters (according with EN15695-2)
