16″ Activated Carbon Lenticular Depth Filter


Powdered activated carbons (PAC) play a critical role in a vast and diverse range of applications. Due to their unique adsorption characteristics, PAC are often used for decolorization, deodorization or the removal of other trace impurities. The handling and cleaning steps are very cost-intensive and time of working with PAC is considerably higher compared to immobilized PAC.
CARBOFILTM depth filter sheets have been specially developed for an easier handling and cleaning and furthermore, for hygienic and health reasons. The PAC is immobilized in the filter sheet and can be used for various liquids in all industries.

– Purified and bleached cellulose
– Powdered activated carbon
– Cationic wet strength agent

Before filtration the filter package or module should be rinsed with 50 L/m² of clean water or buffer. Furthermore, the liquid should be optically clear, otherwise, the filter sheets get exhausted with increased differential pressure. Due to the adsorption characteristics, no pressure increase should be measured. To ensure the contact time, a filtration flux of 100 – 150 L/m²×h should not be exceeded. The sheets can be sterilized with hot water (85 °C) or inline steam (125 °C). Please refer to the special instructions for these purposes
