Activated carbon manufacturer, supplier and exporter. We are manufacturing Granular Activated Carbon with various Iodine Adsorption value (mg. /gm.): 450 IV - 1200 IV

We manufacture and export Activated Carbon to our clients that are formulated using premium quality chemicals and according to the international quality standards. These are used for the reduction of the impurities related to taste, odour and colour inorganic chemicals. Our ranges of products are fully tested by quality analysts to ensure that the defect free range is supplied to our customers. We offer these at cost effective prices.

An activated carbon product can be characterized by its activity and physical properties. Activity properties include pore size distribution that defines the available pore volume of a carbon over three pore size regions: the micropore, mesopore, and macropore regions:
Micropore region - less than 100 Angstroms
Mesopore region - between 100 and 1,000 Angstroms
Macropore region - greater than 1,000 Angstroms
Pore size distribution properties are key indicators of a carbon's potential performance for removing contaminants (adsorbates) from water. The molecules encountered in the gas phase are generally smaller than those in the liquid phase applications; therefore, a gas phase carbon has the majority of its pores concentrated in the micropore region.
A broad range of pore sizes must be available, both for ease of movement of adsorbates through the carbon pores and for the adsorption of particular molecular sizes. Liquid phase carbons often contain a broader pore size distribution to remove color bodies and larger organic materials, while maintaining some microporosity for the removal of taste and odor compounds.
Physical properties include surface area, product density, mesh size, abrasion resistance, and ash content.
Typical measured carbon properties include:
Iodine Number - standard testing done to estimate the surface area of the activated carbon by measuring iodine adsorption at a given set of standard testing conditions, reported in mg I2 adsorbed per gram carbon
Surface Area - amount of surface available for adsorption for a given mass of carbon, measured using techniques such as BET nitrogen adsorption; reported in units of m2/g
Product Density - several properties available, including apparent density which is the density of the carbon at maximum packing efficiency, reported in g/cc or lbs/cf
Mesh Size - measure of particle range of the granular product, usually reported as a range of sieve openings, such as 12 x 40 for a carbon that passes a 12 mesh screen, but is retained on a 40 mesh screen with a specification on the amount that can be retained on the larger opening screen or passing the smaller opening screen; basis is US sieve sizes Abrasion Number - measure of the ability of the carbon product to resist attrition; this important property permits one to understand how durable the activated carbon is in applications where backwashing is required, carbon will be transferred, or treatment velocities are above average
Ash Level - a measure of the non-carbon content of the activated carbon; all base materials have a certain ash constituency, with the content varying from base material to base material; for example, coconut shell carbon tends to have more alkali earth metals, while coal-based carbons have more heavy metals

Coal, Carbon & Charcoal

ACTIVATED CARBON It is known that removal of impurities from liquids or gases by Activated Carbon is by adsorption. But only a thin layer if molecules is enough to neutralize the residual attraction of the outer carbon atoms, which then cannot be adsorb any further molecules and carbon is said to be exhausted. It is however possible to make carbon porous. In this way many countless are created and internal surface area is increased. Many more carbon atoms are then exposed to the surroundings resulted in more molecules from surroundings can be attracted. The carbon is more active and hence called “Activated Carbon”. One gram of ground carbon has an external surface area of 2 to 4 square meters, whereas when carbon has been activated this one gram of carbon may acquire an internal surface area of more one thousand square meters.

PRODUCTION OF ACTIVATED CARBON Activated carbon can be produced from many raw materials i.e. Soft wood, Coconut shell, Peat lignite (Both mineral & coal). The raw material must be relatively low cost and source of raw material should be closed to the factory location to minimize the transport cost. We are using Soft wood & Coconut shell charcoal as raw material in our factory.


1. STEAM ACTIVATED PROCESS: The majority of Activated Carbon used through out the world is produced by two stage process. Firstly the material is carbonized and cock is produced. The pores of produced cock are too small; hence, the next is a process of enlarging the pore structure so that an accessible internal surface is created. This is achieved by semi product with steam at temperature between 900o C to 1200o C. At this temperature rate determination factor is the chemical reaction between steam and carbon. This reaction takes place at the internal surface of the carbon removing carbon from the pore walls and there by enlarging them. Opening up the pore structure is costly as the yield decreases and extra heat is required. e.g. In the purification of water for the adsorption of small molecules from solution. This carbon is cheaper compare to sugar decolorizing carbon where large molecules are to be removed. Thus, steam activation process allows the pore size to be altered and finally carbon can be made to suit different purpose.

PRODUCT The product range of our company can be broadly divided in two categories that is -Powder Carbon & Granular Carbon. Activated carbons are produced from selected best quality of wood charcoal to give a high quality product.

a. Oil Grade Carbons: We have wide range of different grade of Activated carbon for bleaching of edible oils like G.N., Solvent extracted G.N. Oil, Cotton seed Oil, Rapeseed Oil, Soya bean Oil, Palm Oil, Rice bran Oil, Maize Oil, etc. as well as non edible oil like castor oil & mineral oil.
b. Carbon for Purification Of Sugar & Related Products: Activated Carbon for purification of sugar syrups, refining of glucose, dextrose & in manufacture of sugar cubs.
c. Carbon for Purification of Chemicals: For purification of chemicals Dye Intermediates, Electroplating bath solution, plasticizers EDTA, And Acetic acid etc. 

How Carbon Filters Work ?

Carbon granules water filtering is a method to remove contaminants and impurities, removing chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), taste and odor from water.
How Carbon Filters Work - 
Importance of CARBON increases due to its large surface area. Mathematical area calculation of one pound carbon can cover more than 120 acres of ground surface. And the simple concept is MORE surface area can absorb large quantities of impurities present in water and other liquid materials. 
In water carbon filtration case impurities present in water which can cause diseases like cancer and other health problem. Carbon filters due to its large surface area absorb easily large amount of chemicals and substances that pose serious dangers to the normal domestic water supply. work so well because of their large surface area.

We are leading supplier of Activated Carbon and Activated Charcoal for various industrial applications worldwide like Petrochemical, Sewage Treatment, Water Treatment Plants, Activated Carbon for contamination, odour and colour removal.


Methylene Blue Solution – Dissolve 0.15 gram of methylene blue confirming to IS: 2230-1962 in 100 ml of Distilled Water (Distilled water having pH value 7.0). PROCEDURE : Weigh accurately about 0.1 gram of the material, as received, with accuracy of 0.01 gram and transfer to 50 ML Glass stoppered flask. Add from a burette 10 ml of methylene blue solution and shake for 5 minutes. After the first 10 ml are decolorized continue to add methylene blue solution (1 ml at a time) till the blue colour disappears for 5 minutes. Decolorizing power of Activated Carbon is expressed in terms of milligrams of methylene blue adsorbed by 1 gram of activated carbon. (This value is MB value).


DECOLOURIZING POWER = 15 x V  Divided by 10 x M

 Where V = volume in ml of methylene blue solution consumed, and M = mass in gram of the material taken for the test. (Use methylene blue of any standard company to prepare solution and compare solution with standard solution of methylene blue as it does vary batch to batch).
