3M Zeta Plus Activated Carbon Series Filters

3M Zeta Plus Activated Carbon Series Filter Cartridges and Capsules incorporate the latest activated carbon technology to decolorize and remove contaminants from your process streams. Zeta Plus Activated Carbon media can be used in any application where bulk activated carbon is used.

Zeta Plus Principle

3M-Zeta-Plus-Activated-Carbon-Filter-Cartridges-Capsules-Fig1-150x90 High surface area activated carbon particles integrally combined with cellulose fibers
and a positively charged resin to form Zeta Plus Activated Carbon media.

3M Purification incorporates five standard types of activated carbon to cover a broad range of applications. These have been specifically selected for their properties to meet industry requirements. Zeta Plus Activated Carbon media is also available in different porosities so that solutions with different viscosities can be processed.

Flow Rate Influence
Adsorption of molecules by activated carbon relies on van der Waals forces. As those interactions are of short range, contact time between the solution and the filter media is critical.
When the flux increases the adsorption capacity of filter media decreases.
