This activated carbon filter to a major company in Algeria has been running smoothly with minimal trouble-shooting. For satisfactory results, the filtration system utilized the following grades of media: Activated Carbon, and Gravel.
Activated Carbon is tasked with removing chlorine, odor, and color from water as well as controlling the taste. Activated carbon simply eliminates impurities, viruses, soluble gases, and particles that are larger than 0.5 microns.
Activated carbon filter media comes in several types: coal based, wood based and coconut based each consisting of various particle sizes, base materials and activity.
Coal-based carbon filter media delivers excellent performance for contaminants and a large range of concentrations.
Coconut carbon filter media have an average performance rate with low boiling point along with low molecular weight compounds at lower concentrations. Wood based carbon media provide claim higher decolorization properties. The finer mesh sizes that are recommended for systems with lower flow rates.
Activated carbon filtration systems is composed of carbon which has a small electro-positive charge applied to it that draws attention to chemicals and impurities. As water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the contaminants negative ions are drawn towards the surface of the carbon granules. Activated carbon water filters are utilized as pretreatments to remove chlorine, odor, colors, and adjust taste before running feed water through a reverse osmosis system.

Pure Aqua, Inc. designs and manufactures water treatment systems in addition to activated carbon filters. These activated carbon filters were distributed to Algeria in January of 2013. They each have a capacity of 120 gpm. They were designed to work in parallel meaning that they are filtering water at the same time. Activated carbon filters are used primarily to remove unwanted taste, color, chlorine and smell from water.
