Liquid Phase, Coconut Shell Reactivated Carbon


Hydrosil’s HS-ACR is a reactivated granular activated carbon (GAC) manufactured via high temperature steam activation from selected grades of coconut shell. Hydrosil’s HS-AC is designed for liquid phase applications. The HS-ACR is high quality carbon with extraordinary surface area, fine pore structure, high density, and superior hardness. Hydrosil’s HS-ACR for treating liquid phase uses macro and micro pore adsorption to remove contaminants.

HS-ACR is commonly used in oil and gas refineries, and industrial pollution control. Industrial projects that use HS-ACR include groundwater treatment, stormwater run-off treatment, and removal of dissolved organics.
