Developed for the removal of organic compounds from water, wastewater, and industrial and food processing streams, FILTRASORB is a highly active, reagglomerated, durable GAC. Made from select grades of bituminous coal, it is capable of withstanding the abrasion associated with repeated backwashing, hydraulic transport and reactivation.


FILTRASORB GAC has been used successfully to remove contaminants in a variety of applications for more than 40 years:

Features & Benefits:

  • Provides excellent adsorption properties and constant adsorption kinetics in a wide range of applications due to uniform activation throughout the entire granule created by reagglomeration
  • Retains carbon bed segregation after repeated backwashing and hydraulic transport
  • Provides greater adsorption capacity per-unit-volume based on high-density formulation
  • Meets the stringent extractable metals requirements of NSF/American National Standards Institute Standard 61
  • Manufactured to consistent, high-quality standards

Recycling & Reactivation:

Though FILTRASORB is 100-percent freshly manufactured virgin GAC, it can be recycled and reused through thermal reactivation to restore its adsorptive capacity. This eliminates the costs and long-term liability associated with the disposal of spent GAC, and provides customers with a consistent, reliable supply of filtration media.
