GC B-40

Pelletized Activated Carbon

GC B-40 is a virgin activated carbon.  Derived from the finest grades of low ash coal, it is pelletized in form. Its superior activity and surface area make it ideal for most vapor phase applications. The uniformity of its shape makes it particularly attractive in application where low pressure drop is a consideration.
