Vapor Phase, Coconut Shell Activated Carbon

Hydrosil’s HS-AC-Hg is highly active sulfurized granular activated carbon (GAC) manufactured via high temperature steam activation from selected grades of coconut shell. The HS-AC-Hg is used in vapor phase applications. The coconut shell activated carbon is impregnated with 10% sulfur content by weight which makes it ideal for removing mercury.

Common industries that utilize the HS-AC-Hg include manufacturing facilities, semiconductor facilities, and refineries. The media can be loaded in tanks, exhaust systems, general HVAC systems, deep bed scrubbers, etc.
