The Activated Carbon is a nature porous material considered as
one of the most powerful adsorbents known, its main feature being
the large internal surface area developed during the activating
process, with thousands of pores graded as micro, medium and macropores.
This surface area normally ranges between 500 and 1,200 sqm/g.
Due to their extraordinary adsorption qualities and the ability
of the molecules contained into the fluid to concentrate on the
solid surface, the Activated Carbons are widely used in cost-effective
purification and discoloration processes, as well as to odor recovery
The Carbomafra Activated Carbons are produced under strict and
monitored conditions, at high temperatures and using the activation
physical process. Our products are vegetable-born, extracted from
renewable raw-material sources.
They are available under granular or powdered forms, to be used
in gaseous or liquid phase processes.
The liquid phase application may require either the granulated
or powdered types. This selection
involves many aspects to be considered, such as the continuous
or alternating process, the liquid characteristics, the Carbon
characteristics and its recuperation possibility, as well as the
process conditions, namely temperature and investment initial
gaseous phase usually require the use of Granulated Activated
