Activated charcoal, activated carbon of vegetable origin for marine and freshwater aquariums
Virgin charcoal of vegetable origin (anthracite main component) activated in a gas oven and mechanically worked; this means that its cylinder structure has been modified; first it was reduced to powder and then worked in this form.
The smaller the cylinders, the greater the yield of coal.
This type of coal is compact enough to allow good filtration through the MESOpore of its structure
Porosity: 1150 m2 per gram of product. The maximum value is 1400.
Molecular composition: MESO PORI (retains impurities between 2 and 50 microns)
Adsorbency (in methylene blue): 300 mg / g. The maximum value is around 450
Adsorbency (iodine): 1200 mg / g. The maximum value is around 1400
pH: 6. The value must tend to 5 (maximum result obtainable)
pellet charcoal available in 3 different sizes: Ø1,5mm, Ø3,0mm, Ø4,0mm
0.7 / 1 Kg every 500 liters of water to be treated
