June 15, 2011 - AquaCarb CX Series combines microporous structure of coconut shell-based carbon with kinetics of bituminous coal-based carbons. This provides alternative to coal-based activated carbon for surface water treatment, where taste and odor removal, disinfection byproduct (DBP) or DBP precursor removal, and total organic carbon (TOC) removal are required. Product can also serve groundwater applications.

Press release date: June 13, 2011

Siemens Water Technologies introduces the AquaCarb CX Series of coconut shell-based activated carbons, an addition to the company's Westates carbon product line for the North American market. The product can be considered as a new alternative to coal-based activated carbon for surface water treatment, where taste and odor removal, disinfection byproduct (DBP) or DBP precursor removal, and total organic carbon (TOC) removal are required. The product also serves as a premium performance choice for groundwater applications.

AquaCarb CX Series carbons have the high microporous structure of coconut shell-based carbon combined with the faster kinetics of bituminous coal-based carbons, resulting in excellent volatile organic carbon (VOC) removal capacity, while also working well in applications where bituminous coal-based carbons have been the preferred choice.

Siemens' studies have shown that AquaCarb CX Series carbons exhibit a higher adsorption capacity than coal-based carbon for several applications, with greater throughput before carbon breakthrough. The result is a lower lifecycle cost for the customer, and a lower cost for complying with DBP regulations and managing taste and odor issues.

Siemens Water Technologies is a leader in carbon adsorption technology through the Westates line of activated carbons and equipment. As well, Siemens offers a wide range of technical and field support services including analytical testing, removal and installation and spent carbon reactivation and recycling, all of which help ensure that adsorber systems continue to operate efficiently and downtime is minimized.

AquaCarb and Westates are trademarks of Siemens and/or its affiliates in some countries.
