SX0 ¼x6

Filtracarb® SX0 is a granular activated carbon manufactured from specially selected grades of coconut shells by a steam activation process.

The material is manufactured under stringently controlled conditions to produce a porous adsorbent with a highly developed internal surface area.

  • Versatile vapour phase adsorbent
  • Low pressure drop characteristics
  • Excellent product hardness
  • Highly developed pore structure
  • Supplied to BS EN ISO 9001:2008
