Product Data Sheet – Activated Carbon

High-density Adsorbent

MAGNAFLUX® Activated Carbon is high-activity, granular, activated carbon manufactured by steam activation from selected grades of bituminous coal. It is a high-density adsorbent and provides maximum volume activity. Its excellent hardness and mechanical strength ensures negligible losses during the processing of  rinse water.

Activated Carbon is used with our S200 and S500 filtration systems for the cleanup of penetrant rinse water. It offers the perfect balance between adsorption and transport pores, providing optimum performance for rinse water processing.


  • Readily wetted (due to being water-washed)
  • Low dust
  • Good abrasion resistance
  • High organics compound capacity
  • Enhanced transport pore structure
  • Proven high reactivation yields


Ideal for use with our S200 and S500 filtration systems for the cleanup of penetrant rinse water.


Activated carbon with a particle size consisting of a 12 x 40 mesh (0.425-1.70 mm).
