It is used for effective removal of color, odor, organic contamination and chlorine in water. The activated carbon also removes certain chemicals that are dissolved in water passing through a filter containing GAC by trapping the chemical in the GAC. However, other chemicals, like sodium or nitrate, are not attracted to the carbon and are not removed.
Activated carbon filters are made from FRP closed vessel incorporating frontal piping fitted with valves and are operated under pressure. The water is passed through the under bed media & granular activated carbon layer. Where the carbon granule at certain level absorbs unwanted impurities for removal of free chlorine, phenol, taste and odor as well as reduction COD/BOD etc.
Carbon filter have back flushing arrangement, which very easily flushes away the deposited impurity at carbon granules. Thus the reverse flow of water flushes away the impurities deposited at carbon granules.
Activated Carbon Filter, for removal of free chlorine, phenol, taste and odor as well as reduction in COD/BOD.
