The global degradation of water and air is increasing.

Requiring activated carbon of irreproachable quality is therefore becoming essential. That of the active carbon Carbolite brand is precisely one of these exceptional products thanks to its very high adsorption efficiency. And that is one of the essential keys to effective water purification.

Read its active physico-technical specifications. They illustrate a large difference in quality compared to most other activated carbons. It is the adsorption surface (in m2 / g) of an activated carbon that forges its efficiency. If its negative ionic charge rate is optimal, then the exchange of toxic ions works correctly with reference to the “Van der Waals” effect.

But be careful, changing the active carbon regularly is also very important.

It is also essential to continue to neutralize the following undesirable materials:

  • organic materials,
  • heavy metals,
  • chemical residues.

The weight of the active carbon in grains is important in addition:

  • 1-3 mm par litre.

The lighter it is, the better its adsorption will be thanks to the greater density of micro-porosity.

Carbolite brand activated carbon is one of the best solutions for purifying water.

It is crucial to identify the quality of an activated carbon by its physico-technical values.

Comparing the following values of Carbolite to another product will be very helpful:

  • Total surface area (m2/g) (BET): 1100
  • Iodine adsorption (mg/g): 1100
  • pH-value: 6-9
  • Abrasion resistance (%): 95
  • Ash content (weight %): < 3.0
  • Particle size (3,35-2,36 mm) (%): > 95
The very high micro-porous density of Carbolite activated carbon is certified. Therefore its health efficiency is guaranteed.

Carbolite brand activated carbon is packaged in the form of granules.

Indicated as first choice quality in water treatment.

Held captive:

  • heavy metals,
  • surfactants,
  • phenols.


  • bacteria,
  • toxic ions.

Examples of Carbolite active carbon use:

  • Produce drinking water
  • Reduce the scent and taste effect of chlorine (chlorine)
  • Clean up
  • Treating wastewater
  • Filter the air
  • Refine food products
  • Refine chemical elements
  • Treat gases
Combining an activated carbon treatment with ultraviolet rays (UV-C) is recommended.
The performance of activated carbon will often depend on the temperature as well as the nature of the substances to be adsorbed.

Several parameters influence the filtration of water in activated carbon:

  1. Types of substance to be eliminated. Substances which have a high molecular weight and low solubility will be better adsorbed.
  2. Concentration of substances to be captured. Any high concentration of substances will require more activated carbon at shorter intervals.
  3. Problem of competition of substances between adsorption sites. Disturbance of filtration.
  4. Low pH of the water to be treated. Easier neutralization of acidic substances.

List of chemicals that are sufficiently filtered by this type of activated carbon:

Deisopropyltatrazine, Linuron, Alachlor, Desethylatrazine, Malathion, Aldrin, Demeton, MCPA, Anthracene, Dibutylphthalate, Mecoprop, Atrazine, Metazachlor, Azinphos-ethyl, Dichlorobenzene, Methyl benzenamine, Bentazone, Methylnaphthalene, Biphenyl, Dichlorocresol, Methylbutane, Bipyridine, Dichlorophenol, Monuron , Ethylhexyl, Phthalate, Naphthalene, Bromacil, Dichlorophenoxy, Nitrobenzene, Bromodichloromethane, Dieldrin, Nitrophenol, Bromophenol, Diethylphthalate, Butylbenzene, Dinitrocresol, Calcium hypochlorite, Dinitrotoluene, Ozone, Carbofuran, Dinitrotoluene, Parathion, Chlorine, Diuron, Pentachlorophenol, Chlorine Dioxide , Endosulfane, Propazine, Chlorobenzene, Endrin, Simazine, Chloro-Nitrotoluene, Ethylbenzene, Terbutryne, Chlorophenol, Hezachlorobenzene, Tetrachlorethylene, Chlorotoluene, Hezachlorobutadiene, Triclopyre, Chrysene, Hexane, Trimethylbenzene, Cresol, Isodrine, Xylene, Cyanazine, Isooctane, Cyclohexane, Isoproturon , DDT, Lindane.

Numerous studies confirm an effective neutralization of many substances by the use of this type of activated carbon.

The effect of a toxic cocktail can actually be caused by the addition of residual chemicals to the water.

The European standards of each chemical residue in the water of the public network is globally respected.

On the other hand, their addition in milligrams and micrograms per liter shows:

› a real potentially toxic cocktail effect.

Checking the risk is possible.

It suffices to add the list of published chemical residues.

But, not all residues are listed! Because it would be too expensive.

Depending on the region in which one is located, a historical survey of agricultural and industrial activities makes it possible to assess the missing residues!

A special advanced activated carbon called Carbolite.

Whose main objective is:

  • water purification through very high performance adsorption.


Is also used in the treatment of air. But that’s not his major specialty. Because the technical profile of activated carbon is different for air. The use of multipurpose universal activated carbon should be avoided. It may provide poor results under certain circumstances.

Conclusions on the active carbon of the Carbolite brand:

  • best choice,
  • superior quality,
  • iso EU security,
  • competitive price.
