Bituminous Activated Carbon

Bituminous carbon is a coal based carbon. It is black or dark brown, often with well-defined bands of bright and dull material. It has a lower micropore volume level but the mesopores and macropores are higher which means it has a wider range to absorb molecules from small to medium making the life of the carbon shorter.  It is also used by our customers who may have a sensitivity to Coconut shell carbon. A macropore has a diameter of more than 50 nm - A mesopore has a diameter of 2nm - 50nm and a micropore has a diameter of less than 2 nm
