Activated Carbon

Activated Carbon

TIGG provides a wide range of bulk Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filter media to handle organics removal in industrial, municipal, remediation, and other applications. We have an extensive line of granular activated-carbon filter media for both liquid phase and vapor phase adsorption applications. TIGG provides virgin coconut activated carbon and coal-based GAC as well as reactivated carbon for various adsorption processes. We deliver carbon in amounts ranging from 55 lb bags up to bulk activated carbon orders in the tens of thousands of pounds.

In addition to activated carbon media, TIGG offers a variety of media to remove inorganic materials. One type is a specially prepared activated alumina for arsenic removal, another is bone char, or hydroxyapatite, which sorbs lead and other metals.

TIGG’s oil adsorption media consists of either modified clay or zeolite. Oil absorption media is capable of removing 80-90% of the undissolved oil present in an influent water stream.

TIGG’s gravel and sand filtration media have the capability to achieve suspended solids reduction in applications having particles above 10 microns. Smaller particles down to 5 microns may be controlled using garnet or zeolite. Packages are available with anthracite to increase capacity.
