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.
