Liquid treatment activated carbon

The inquiry about this product

The HOKUETSU brand of liquid treatment activated carbon is used to treat water, sewerage, and discharged water, and to purify many types of liquids. It is used in many chemical factories and food factories. Ajinomoto Fine-Techno has many other unique products, such as high-performance decolorizers, which are regenerable through chemical agents, and products that are very effective at eliminating colloid molecules, a function that activated carbons in general aren’t very good at.

Hokuetsu CL-H

Derived from coal, CL-H is characterized by its extensive micropore distribution, and is suitable for adsorbing many different organic substances, particularly in treating discharged water.
It can be used to treat many different types of water (e.g., for eliminating COD/BOD, decoloring/deodorizing, eliminating free chlorine).

Hokuetsu Y-10S / Y-10SF

Coconut shell–based Y-10S/Y-10SF excels in adsorption and is very pure. It is particularly effective in the treatment of clean water (e.g., potable water).

Hokuetsu CL-K

Mainly designed for processing chemical agents and foods, specially activated carbon (a high-performance product) is much more adsorptive than activated carbon in general, and is particularly effective for decoloring.
The product is regenerable with an alkaline solution, which is better at keeping costs down than thermal regeneration.
(*Thermal regeneration may be necessary if the product’s adsorptivity has decreased significantly.)
Using this in combination with an adsorption resin, HOKUETSU HS, is even more effective at decoloring.

Hokuetsu GS-A1 / GS-B1

Macropores are more developed in HOKUETSU GS than in conventional activated carbon. Therefore, HOKUETSU GS is particularly effective at eliminating giant molecules, especially colloid substances.
With a similar degree of adsorptivity as general activated carbon, this product is used in many different applications, such as for sake brewing, medical drugs, processing water for food, treating wastewater containing heavy metals, dyeing, and treating colloid substances in wastewater for polishing. It selectively eliminates colloids containing iron(coloration precursors) and is used for many different applications where coloring is not desirable, such as in refining sake (mother water) and foods.
