Watts A8056-J Catalytic Carbon Water Filter Media (28 lbs/1 Cubic Foot)
Catalytic carbon is a specialized carbon media to remove hydrogen sulfide gas, iron, and chloramines. Catalytic carbon is also used for removal of chloramines and VOC as well as taste and odor improvement. Catalytic carbon is a liquid phase virgin activated carbon that has been manufactured to develop catalytic functionality. Catalytic carbon is unique in that it concentrates reactants via adsorption and then promotes their reaction on the surface of the pores. Catalytic carbon is produced from bituminous coal using a patented process for the use in liquid phase systems to promote catalytic reactions. The reactant concentration determines the effective contact time. Catalytic activity allows for smaller, more compact system sizing and lower capital requirements. High hardness reduces fines and losses due to handling. Works with low oxidant levels and limits the need for chemicals. Simple and reliable equipment design that can handle spikes in concentration without metering of chemicals. Reduced carbon requirements reduce operating costs. Enhanced carbon media performance for a greater degree of contaminant removal at reduced costs. Thermal reactivation is an option for recycle and reuse to minimize operating costs and eliminates disposal concerns. Although it is not impregnated with metals or alkali, it displays the catalytic functionality of these materials.

- Wet activated carbon preferentially removes oxygen from air
- In closed or partially closed containers and vessels, oxygen depletion may reach hazardous levels
- If workers are to enter a vessel containing carbon, follow appropriate sampling and work procedures for low oxygen spaces
- This includes all applicable federal and state requirements
