Activated carbon fiber is just as important as activated carbon. Activated carbon is granular type while activated fiber has several types as felt, cloth and silk, made of phytochemicals fiber(viscose) or other organic polymer as raw material, forming first then carbonization and activation. The main elements is carbon, carbon atoms in the activated carbon fiber in the form of class of graphite crystallite disorderly stack layer exists, three-dimensional space order is bad, they are generated after activation in the pore, more than 90% for the micro hole, it provides a large internal surface area of activated carbon fiber.
The other characteristic of activated carbon fiber is its larger surface area, and a large number of pores are open in the fiber surface which helps to short the molecular adsorption in adsorption and desorption process, the mass can be directly into the pores.
The activated fiber can use widely used in: activated carbon fiber fabric
Solvent recover: adsorption recycling of benzene, ketones, esters, petroleum etc.
Air purification: can adsorb filtration stench, body odor, flue gas, gas, O3, SO2 and NO etc.
Water Purification: can remove the heavy metal ions in the water, carcinogens, odor, mildew, bacteria and discoloring etc. can be used for water, food, industrial water treatment.
Environmental Protection Engineering: waste gas and waste water treatment.
