Activated Carbon Production Process

Typically, the skin of a coconut is burnt at 450° - 500° C after which its carbohydrates are treated with steam at 1000° – 1200° C. evaporating all substances that could possibly be evaporated at this temperature, this process is called activation. When this process is complete, results in highly porous charcoals that have surface areas of 300-2,000 square metres per gram making this into a very adhesive material called activated carbon. The activated carbon adheres through a capillary phenomenon. That is to say that adhesion occurs through contact between the carbon and organic substances. In the Mineral Pot purifier, silver is attached that emits a minute amount of activated silver, which flows out, suppressing the propagation of microorganisms.
