About Carbon Filters

Activated carbon has swept through the modern world and become an essential component in an enormous range of industries, including medical, cosmetic, and agricultural applications. This versatile ingredient is also a crucial component for the best water filtration systems.

Also called “activated charcoal,” activated carbon is a form of carbon that has been processed to have an incredibly large surface area. Tiny, low-volume pores provide a surface for either adsorption or chemical reactions.

One gram of activated carbon has over 32,000 square feet (3,000 square meters) of surface area — and one teaspoon has roughly the area of a football field. This enormous area alone makes activated carbon extremely useful for a wide range of applications, but activated carbon can undergo further chemical treatment to increase its adsorption properties.
