A 50/50 Blend of HS-600* And Activated Carbon
GC Spectrum XB-17 is a blended media of virgin activated carbon and GC HS-600 media. The HS-600 media alone will adequately control a large number of contaminates via adsorption and oxidation processes. However, there are applications where the chemical properties of the HS-600 and the adsorbent properties of activated carbon are both necessary for contaminate removal. A common example is where hydrocarbons are present with acidic gases. In this environment, the higher molecular weight hydrocarbons may cause desorption of the lower molecular weight acidic gases and thus limit HS-600’s effectiveness.
The follow is a partial listing of gases that can be controlled with GC Spectrum XB-17:
