Activated Carbon

KSh800

Activated carbon is carbon that has been treated in a way that creates a large number of tiny pores, greatly increasing its surface area. This massive surface area allows the filter media to absorb a large volume of material, making it useful for removing pollutants from both air and water.

Why you need activated carbon in your tank

  1. It removes odors from the aquarium water
  2. Gets rid of  yellowing compounds
  3. Removes medications, supplements and plant fertilizers

Our carefully steamed activated carbons produced from coconut shells. They have a tighter, more micro porous pore structure than their coal-based counterparts. Coconut shell-based carbons tend to be harder, more resistant to abrasion. Additionally, they are lower in ash compared to other types of carbons. The porous material acts like a sponge for different types of organic and inorganic pollutants. It is widely known as renewable and the best source of green filtration agent that has diverse utility and purposes.

Carbon adsorption has numerous applications in removing pollutants from air or water streams both in the field and in industrial processes such as:
