Our powdered activated carbons have been used for more than 90 years to purify a wide variety of food, water and chemical products. Uses include municipal and point-of-use water treatment, catalysis, and decolorization, deodorization and contaminant reduction of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, foods and beverages.
Features and Benefits
Extraordinarily large surface area and pore volume make Nuchar® powdered activated carbons the product of choice for liquid-phase purification in batch and continuous dosage applications.
Controlled particle size distribution results in a combination of fast kinetics, high capacity, good settling and suspension characteristics and low-pressure filtration.
Available in a variety of grades, they cover a range of pore size distributions, surface chemistries and purity levels. Many grades meet the standards of the Food Chemical Codex and are certified NSF/ANSI 61 and 42. Additionally, our powdered activated carbon products have received Ifanca Halal Product Certification at our Covington, VA and Wickliffe, KY locations as well as Star-K Kosher Certification at each of our manufacturing locations - Covington, VA and Wickliffe, KY; Fujian, China and Huaiyushan, China.
