GC 6x12S

Coconut Shell Granular Activated Carbon

GC 6x12S is a granular activated carbon ideal for most air purification purposes. Made from selected grades of coconut shell, its superior level of hardness makes them cleaner than most other carbons and gives them longer life expectancy. This, combined with its high activity level, makes it well suited for any kind of carbon filter or system. Aside from general air purification and deodorization, our coconut shell carbons are also very effective in solvent recovery applications.

Wet activated carbon removes oxygen from air causing a severe hazard to workers inside carbon vessels. Confined space/low oxygen procedures should be put in place before any entry is made. Such procedures should comply with all applicable Local, State and Federal guidelines.
