Comparison of different types of Virgin GAC


Independent Evaluation


Jan to Mar ‘06

An independent evaluation of the physical and adsorptive characteristics of Virgin Granular Activated Carbon (GACs) obtained from different suppliers was undertaken at WatStech Ltd. The tests employed were based on the ASTM and British Standard methods and allowed for a direct comparison of the physical and chemical characteristics to be obtained.

Such evaluation enabled the water company to compare the types of Virgin GAC available commercially and decision making for the best-suited Virgin GAC for water treatment application.
