Carb-Cat Granular Activated Catalytic Carbon

Technical Overview

Carb-Cat is a liquid phase virgin activated carbon that is manufactured to develop catalytic functionality. It is a produced from coconut shell GAC using a highly sophisticated and confidential process. Of course, it is NSF Certified. The catalytic activity of this activated carbon makes it highly effective for the removal of chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from potable water.

It's extremely 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 engineered to remove chloramines, hydrogen sulfide, VOCs, iron, chemicals, chlorine, tastes, and odors.

Carb-Cat has a very high reaction kinetic for the removal of chloramines from potable water which are specially designed to carry a large number of catalytic sights compared to products from other catalytic carbons so as to react with and remove different types of chloramines, including monochloramine.

While US Water Systems has a strong preference for US Made Products, the fact of the matter is that the best premium-grade coconut shell carbon is made in Sri Lanka under very exacting standards and world-class processes. This is not from China, Taiwan or India, but rather from the World’s Best Coconut Shell Carbon Manufacturer which offers the greatest absorptive capability.

Features And Benefits

All Catalytic Carbon is not created equal and the fact of the matter is that there is no equal to Carb-Cat. If you are using Jacobi or Centaur Catalytic Carbon, it might be time to use the best carbon in the business.

  • Catalytic activity allows for smaller more compact system sizing
  • NSF Certified
  • Greater degree of contaminant removal
  • Enhanced 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
  • Engineered to be better than Jacobi CX-MCA and Centaur 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…
