Acid washed activated carbon, derived from premium coconut shell or wood, undergoes a specialized purification process to elevate its adsorption capabilities and purity. This unique treatment involves washing the activated carbon with acid solutions, such as hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid, to eliminate impurities and ash residues, resulting in a higher degree of cleanliness and surface area.

Manufacturing Process:
The journey of acid washed activated carbon begins with the careful selection of coconut shells or wood as the raw material. After carbonization and activation, the activated carbon undergoes an additional purification step involving acid washing. During this process, the activated carbon is immersed in acid solutions, where impurities and ash particles are dissolved and removed. Following acid washing, the activated carbon undergoes thorough rinsing and drying to produce the final product.


Acid washed activated carbon finds widespread applications across various industries, owing to its enhanced purity and adsorption properties. Some common applications include:

1. Water Treatment: Acid washed activated carbon is utilized in water treatment processes to effectively remove contaminants such as organic pollutants, chlorine, and Odors, ensuring the production of clean and safe drinking water.
