Carbon Filtration Solutions have been developing water phase canisters for 8 years. The importance of Activated Carbon for water filtration is growing as industries seek inexpensive and effective solutions to comply with environmental Legislation, which demand cleaner discharges from factories. Our Water Canisters are prefabricated, ready to use, self contained water purification units.
The system is able to remove hazardous or toxic dissolved organics from waste water streams, hazardous waste lagoons, hydrocarbons, surfactants and colour from effluent streams, making the water suitable for discharge or in some cases for re-use. A single unit should not exceed 35 litres per minute, the treated water flow can be increased by placing the canisters in a series of two or more.
The two most important factors affecting the efficiency of carbon for water filtration are the amount of activated carbon in the canister, and the amount of time the contaminant spends in contact with it.
The more carbon the better. Similarly, the lower the flow rate of water, the more time that contaminants will be in contact with the carbon, and the more absorption that will take place.
The most effective carbon types used in water filtration are wood and coconut shell carbons. While coconut shell carbon typically costs 15 to 20% more than wood it is regarded as the most effective.
Activated Carbon Canisters have a broad range of industrial applications which include,
Purification of chemically contaminated water
Sewage treatment plants
Removal of dissolved organic matter
Removal of taste and odour
Process water filtration
Well water treatment
Pilot filter for large activated carbon adsorbers
Chemical plant wastewater holding tanks
Effective proven technology
High activity carbon
Epon lined steel drums for Corrosion Resistance
Acceptable for transport of spent carbon
Low pressure drop
Filters normally available ex-stock
No installation costs
Maintenance free operation
Minimal space requirements
Stainless Steel models available
Maximum working pressure-14psi
Temperature limit—150 Deg F
205 litre Canister
ALC Water Canisters can be set up in series to increase capacity or in parallel to increase flow volume.
Prior to operation the carbon in each water canister must be wetted with clean water and allowed to de-aerate, the water filled canister should sit for about 24 hours,
WARNING: Wet Activated Carbon removes oxygen from air causing a severe hazard to workers inside carbon vessels. Confined space/low oxygen procedures should be put in place before any entry is made. Such procedures should comply with all applicable local, state and federal guidelines.
