Product Description

Centaur-C Catalytic Granular Activated Carbon

Calgon Centaur 12 X 40 is a liquid phase virgin activated carbon that is manufactured to develop catalytic functionality. It is a produced from bituminous coal using a patented process. The catalytic activity of this activated carbon makes it highly effective for the removal of chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from potable water. Its large micropore volume makes it particularly well suited for the removal of low molecular weight organic compounds and their chlorinated by-products such as chloroform and other trihalomethanes (THMs). An important feature of this material is its superior mechanical hardness and the extensive dedusting during its manufacture ensures an exceptionally clean activated carbon product.

Catalytic carbon is to remove chloramines, hydrogen sulfide, VOCs, iron, chemicals, chlorine, tastes, and odors.

Features And Benefits

  • Catalytic activity allows for smaller more compact system sizing
  • NSF Certified
  • Enhanced carbon media performance for a greater degree of contaminant removal 
  • Catalytic activity
  • Large and extensive internal pore structure
  • Optimized density
  • Maximum hardness
  • Low dust and turbidity
  • Excellent adsorption capacity
  • High volume activity
  • Rapid de-chlorination
  • Low filtered water turbidity
  • Equal to or better than Jacobi CX-MCA Catalytic Carbon

The Catalytic Carbon Advantage

As more and more municipalities use Chloramine (mixing chlorine with ammonia), the issue becomes, how do you remove it? Regular GAC carbon does not effectively remove chloramine, while catalytic carbon does. If your municipality does not use Chloramine today, the odds are, they will use it at some time because it is less expensive. It’s all about the money…

    I have used both Jacobi CX-MCA and *** and I think Jacobi is better and cleaner. It lasts longer and costs a lot less. I'll never use *** again.

Product FAQs

Product FAQs


Ask a Question

  • Can you get the jacobi carbon in 50 lb bags?

    You can get it the Jacobi Catalytic Carbon in ½ and 1 cu/ft bags.  1 cu/ft is 27 pounds so get 2

  • Is this the carbon needed for the 385GWP1000 purchased back in 2012

    Yes it is!

  • I plan on using this media in a Culligan Super S. It is a iron and sulfur removal filter with air injection, and bleach back flush for regeneration. While bleach destroy its effectiveness?
    1. Bleach will not destroy it, but why would you use bleach with air (oxygen).
    1. Bleach is  not a good oxidizer and iron and sulfur need to be oxidized to be removed.
    1. Bleach forms THM’s (trihalomethanes) which are carcinogens.
    1. I would use Hydrogen Peroxide instead of bleach,  H2O2 is made of the elements of water and is a great oxidizer, unlike bleach.


    By the way, there is no comparison between H2O2 And Chlorine with regard to performance.  H2O2 blows chlorine away.

  • I am considering a activated charcoal whole house filter system. I understand my usage may vary depending on water quality at the POE. What is the typical media replacement interval? How long would the activated charcoal media last?

    Usually 3-5 years.  It depends on the source water quality and the amount of water that is used.  3-5 years is a good estimate.
