Filtration Media ProActive™ 20 x 50
Coconut Shell Carbon
ProActive™ 20 x 50 Coconut Shell Carbon (P/N IT50003C) is designed specifically for high-efficiency water purification. It is manufactured from coconut shells by high-temperature steam activation under rigidly controlled conditions.
The physical characteristics of ProActive 20 x 50 Coconut Shell Carbon, including its high microporosity, superior hardness, and low dust make it an ideal choice for point-of-use and point-of-entry filtration applications, as well as industrial applications with stringent water purity requirements. The carbon is especially effective for adsorbing trace organic compounds such as THMs and pesticides, chlorine and disinfection by-products. It is NSF Certified.
For safety and handling purposes, we recommend appropriate protective measures when entering a wet vessel containing granular activated carbon, because wet activated carbon depletes oxygen from air and therefore, dangerously low levels of oxygen may be encountered. In such a case, the oxygen level inside the vessel shall be determined before entering and appropriate protective equipment should be worn when entering, or leave the vessel open until the oxygen level in the vessel is normal.
