What to pay attention to when using powdered activated carbon

Powdered activated carbon , maybe you are new to it, maybe you have seen it but don't know what it is. In fact, it is a relatively common filter in our lives, and it is very powerful. For example, there is often a layer of black substance in the household water purifier, which is powdered activated carbon. There is also the old-fashioned gas mask like an alien in the movie. The main filter component inside is also powdered activated carbon. The use of powdered activated carbon is so extensive that in practice it requires special attention.

Powdered activated carbon is black powder or granular amorphous carbon, mostly wood or coal. Because of the powder form, its surface area is large, and it has a lot of micropores, and it has strong adsorption force and is mainly used for adsorbing organic matter. But also because it is powdery, and the powdered activated carbon made of wood and coal is black, it is difficult to distinguish between the two. Different raw materials, after all, the density of the product is different, and the use effect is also biased. Therefore, before using the powdered activated carbon, it is necessary to identify the material to be used. Due to their different densities, the two activated carbons can be placed in the same storage environment. After a period of time, two kinds of carbon of the same quality are taken. The small volume is the coal charcoal with a relatively high density, and the bulky one is the charcoal. In addition, when using, first test the water quality and understand the walking condition of the organic molecular weight to confirm the type of activated carbon and the amount to be invested.

Also pay attention when transporting and storing powdered activated carbon. Activated carbon is a porous adsorbent, so it should be noted that the storage conditions should be dry, and once the excess water molecules are adsorbed, it will lose its adsorption. When transporting, it is also necessary to prevent direct contact with the source of supply. Powdery objects touch open flames, and huge explosions may occur when severe.

In use, since the powdered activated carbon is labor-intensive in the steps of loading, unloading, unpacking, etc., it is easy to cause dust to fly. Therefore, it should be handled lightly when used, and operated as low as possible.
