Example text

After this treatment the pellets are heat treated using the normal activation process [52]. However, the quality attained, in terms of density, hardness and abrasion index, with phosphoric acid activation is worse than that of the steam extrudates. In the case of KOH activation, the product obtained is nearly always in powder form (especially at high KOH vs. carbon ratios), or at least, it has a high attrition level. In consequence, the cylindrical shape must be sought after the activation step.

Normally several binders are used to form the paste because they each have different tasks: a) to provide lubricant properties to allow the extrusion of the paste b) to transform the wet extrudates into hard and consistent short cylinders during the drying step (low temperature binder), and c) to act as a high temperature binder in the activation step. The type and composition of the binder is a matter for further research, since the final hardness and abrasion index is dependent on the binders.

Normally this is used in applications where the solute may have problems in diffusing from the transport pores to the adsorption pores and where an enormous amount of time would be required to reach equilibrium if a granular form were used. In liquid phase applications batch stirred vessels are often used for treatment with PAC. The type of carbon, contact time and amount of carbon depend on the degree of purification Types of Carbon Adsorbents and their Production 35 required. The efficiency of the treatment may be improved by applying a continuous countercurrent of carbon suspension flow in multiple stages.
