Activated carbon is intended for improve alcohol quality which is developed by us. This black gold has been already known for many years due to its capability to absorb the other substances.
The properties of carbon are linked to its porous structure. When it appeared in the industry in the last century, it was used for decolorizing. In the alcohol manufacturing as good carbon is regarded this which has a significant absorption surface area. How is it applied in the distillation? So, activated carbon absorbs any and all odours and harmful substances.
This process can be conducted with low percentage alcohol, because when its concentration is higher activated carbon is consumed in a quicker manner. It is also highly dependent on the carbon quality. We offer only the best quality carbon so choosing a product from our shop provides no risk. A filtration process when using carbon is very simple. You need a carbon filter to which should be add carbon that is previously rinsed with cold water. To this filter should be connected infeed and outfeed distillate hoses. Alcohol, at your discretion, may be filtered once or a few times.
We hope that activated carbons available in our on-line shop greatly support this process. A packaging of 1.7L is sufficient to filter approximately 50L of the 45% distillate. Preferably, alcohol for filtering should be as cool as possible.
