Carbon Treatment Chambers

Series 6CT, 8CT, 12CT

Carbon bag chambers contain a reusable polypropylene mesh bag to be filled with Penguin Style GC sulfur-free, activated granular carbon. Depending upon the size, the chambers hold from 5 to 100 pounds of carbon. When the carbon becomes exhausted, only the granular carbon and not the bag need to be replaced. Penguin granular carbon quickly reaches its saturation point in absorbing minimal amounts of brighteners yet continues to have excellent adsorption for organic impurities. Following organic decontamination, the solution is automatically depth filtered through a set of 3 micron filter cartridges attached to the carbon bag chamber head. This entraps all foreign particles and solids. Carbon bag chambers can easily be converted to straight filtration if required. All carbon bag chambers come equipped with a flow plate, polypropylene mesh carbon bag, short and long filter cartridge rods and an initial set of 3 micron filter cartridges used during carbon treatment.

Chambers are pressure containing vessels and should be applied for all applications with caution. Temperature has a very limiting nature when using thermoplastics. Please contact us with details of chemicals, temperatures, pressures and type of pump being used with the chamber. Air operated diaphragm pumps can cause pressure pulsing and high pressures and are not recommended in most cases.
