GC 8x30R

Regenerated Activated Carbon

GC 8x30R is a reactivated carbon which is granular in form. Made from bituminous coal, it is ideal for many liquid phase applications including the removal of organic contaminants from liquid streams. Its size makes it appealing where low pressure drop is needed. It is not recommended for use in the purification of drinking water or other food grade applications.
