  Activated Carbon Powder (Chemically Activated)
This form of activated carbons are manufactured from wood saw dust. The porous structure of chemically activated carbons have high developed macroporosity (large size pores) and to a much smaller extent mesoporosity. The chemically activated carbon made from saw dust produces activated carbon with an acidic pH.
Manufacturing process: The finely pulverized saw dust is saturated with concentrated phosphoric acid. It is than taken out dried and heated to 600°C in a rotary kiln. The activation takes place as the phosphoric acid evaporates from the saw dust. These leads to the opening of the pores which increases the surface area of the carbon.
Products obtained by fermentation processes can be purified using chemically activated carbons. It is specifically used in the purification of starch, glucose and sugar
Our standard specification of chemically activated carbons are as under.
