CB™ is a specialty impregnated, coconut-shell-based activated carbon. It was specifically developed for the removal of Mercury (Hg), which is difficult to remove by other adsorbents including standard activated carbon. CB™ is capable of removing both elemental and ionic mercury species from gas streams. The captured mercury is chemically bound by an impregnant on the carbon and, thus, the spent carbon is resistant to release of adsorbed mercury. CB™ is manufactured by high-temperature steam activation of coconut shells followed by impregnation. CB™ is a proven product for mercury removal in indoor-air applications where air is to be recycled or exhausted at elevated temperature. The standard mesh size is 6x12, but other custom mesh sizes are available upon request.

Safety Message

Activated carbon preferentially removes oxygen from air. In closed or partially closed containers and vessels, oxygen depletion may reach hazardous levels. If workers are to enter a vessel containing carbon, appropriate sampling and work procedures for potentially low oxygen spaces should be followed, including all applicable Federal and State requirements.
