Granular Activated Carbon
|Publication Date:||20 January 2018|
This standard describes virgin granular and extruded activated carbons for use as a filter medium and adsorbent in water treatment. It involves the selection, placement, and use of granular activated carbon (GAC) in filter adsorbers where the GAC must function as filter medium and adsorbent, as well as in those systems where the primary function is adsorption.
The purpose of this standard is to provide the minimum requirements for GAC, including physical, testing, packing, and shipping requirements.
