What Will Affect The Service Life of Coconut Shell Activated Carbon Water Filter Cartridge?

作者 watfilter

Generally speaking, the service life of coconut shell activated carbon filter cartridge used in water treatment is 2-3 years, but this is a general calendar value. Its specific operating time is easily affected by many factors such as the quality of raw materials of coconut shell activated carbon water filter. The specific surface area of good-quality coconut shell activated carbon should be 1000m2 / g, and the mechanical strength should be above 90%.  With strong adsorption capacity and fast filtration speed,It is not easy to move due to particle formation, and impurities such as organic matter in water are not easy to block in the coconut shell activated carbon filter layer.

What will affect the service life of coconut shell activated carbon water filter cartridge?

  1. Water output.

 Assuming that the daily water output is large, the service life of the coconut shell activated carbon water filter cartridge will be relatively shortened, and each kilogram of coconut shell activated carbon can control 20 tons of water filtration capacity.

2. Water temperature.

The higher the water temperature, the stronger the adsorption capacity of the coconut shell activated carbon cartridge; but when the water temperature is higher than 30 ° C, the adsorption capacity of the coconut shell activated carbon filter will reach its limit, and its adsorption performance will gradually decrease.

3. PH value of water quality.

When the water quality is acidic, the adsorption capacity of the coconut shell activated carbon water filter cartridge for anionic substances is relatively weakened; when the water quality is alkaline, the adsorption capacity of the coconut shell activated carbon water filter for cationic substances is weakened. Therefore, the pH value of the water quality is unstable, which will also affect the adsorption capacity of the coconut shell activated carbon water filter. The adsorption capacity of coconut shell activated carbon cartridge is directly proportional to the contact time with water. The longer the contact time, the better the filtered water quality.

In general, we can use hydrochloric acid to modify the coconut shell activated carbon filter in practice to improve its adsorption performance. Similarly, in the process of using coconut shell activated carbon filter, we can use the chemical properties of the surface of the adsorbent and the adsorbent to find more effective adsorption methods through product experiments to improve our use efficiency and purification efficiency.
