Granular Activated Carbon for Decolorization and Food Grade Applications
GC 12 x 40DC is a reagglomerated activated carbon manufactured from a specially selected blend of coal and rinsed in demineralized water. Manufactured at an NSF/ANSI certified facility, it is suitable for drinking water and food grade applications. Its’ superior Iodine and Molasses Numbers make it especially attractive in decolorizing applications.
