Elution and Carbon Reactivation

Carbon Fouling & Deactivation

Fouling of carbon with associated deactivation is fairly rapid in CIP circuits. Acid washing and elution only partially reactivate carbon and so for its repeated use, thermal reactivation after each loading is essential. Reactivation kilns are basically of two types; rotary kilns and vertical kilns. The use of rotary kilns is widespread but generally they … Read more
