Activated carbon is a natural product made of organic coal, wood or coconut shells and is available as granulate, pellets and powder. The capacity of activated carbon is extremely large because of the extensive surface within the internal structure of the pores. This area can grow into a size of 2000 square meters or more per gram of activated carbon. The choice of activated carbon depends on application and requirements within the industry. EUROWATER has extensive experience in this area and is ready to guide you.
Our product range comprises a wide number of standard plants, all engineered and manufactured in-house. The starting point is our modular-built standard system ensuring high flexibility, high reliability in operation, and short delivery time. Each solution can be customized and built according to the specific application by adapting the choice of material, instrumentation, and control system - based on our combined know-how.
The product range comprises filters of many different sizes and materials. All carbon filters can have automatic backwash. Carbon filters are also available in stainless steel with CIP (Cleaning In Place) for disinfection.
Both backwash and quality rinse can be individually programmed by predetermined hours controls. The filter tanks are corrosion resistent made of steel and are coated with PPA.
Activated carbon filters are available in stainless steel for a more hygenic design. Carbon filters of stainless steel are suitable for hot water sanitation or different types of activated carbon.

Contaminated areas are a potential problem for the groundwater and for our future drinking water. Remediation of contaminated areas often includes dealing with contaminated water. EUROWATER has experience with mobile filtration plants for temporary remediation.
All water supplies contain organic matters which use the capacity of the carbon through direct adsorption or fouling of the carbon. Backwash of the activated carbon filter is only recommended if the pressure drops.
To obtain the capacity of the activated carbon, prefilters such as bag filters, pressure filters, and sand filters can be a good solution.
Pesticides in ground water is an increasing problem. MEM2BIO is a pilot project where researchers will develop a green technology for cleaning contaminated drinking water. The project of MEM2BIO is a collaboration between different institutions, companies, and waterworks. EUROWATER has designed the pilot water treatment plant.
