Carbon Adsorbers

What is Adsorption?

Adsorption is a process that occurs when a gas or liquid solute accumulates on the surface of a solid, forming a molecular or atomic film (the adsorbate). The carbon utilized for radioactive iodine removal is nuclear grade 8x16 mesh and is impregnated with TEDA to improve retention of radio-iodines.

RPS offers adsorbers in both circular and square cross-sections.
