OVC™ is a high-quality carbon manufactured from coconut shells by high-temperature steam activation under rigidly controlled conditions. The physical characteristics of this carbon, including its high microporosity, superior hardness, and low dust, make it a versatile choice for many vapor phase applications. The carbon is especially effective for removing weakly adsorbed compounds and for reducing emissions to trace levels. It has a high retention for adsorbed species, compared to competitive products. Standard mesh size is 4x8, but custom mesh sizes are available upon request. In addition, greater-activity coconut products are available such as, RVG®-C80. In most cases, the spent (used) OVC™ can be reactivated (recycled), ending the generator’s waste liability.

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.
