Carbon Reactivation

A valuable service which we offer to customers is the reactivation of spent activated carbon at our facility in Springs, to the East of Johannesburg. 

This enables customers to reduce costs and to eliminate waste by recycling of contaminated carbon.



We are able to satisfy your requirements for filtration media, including activated carbons as well as other media such as anthracite, garnet and filter sand.



These can be fabricated to any design code and from an unlimited range of materials.
Due to competitive fabrication costs, we are able to be effective in supplying our equipment to anywhere in the world.
We would welcome the opportunity of supplying quotations for delivery to your destination.



In addition, for those users of powder activated carbon (PAC) we can offer automated dosing systems manufactured by Cleeve Materials Handling of the UK.
These sytems eliminate dust and simplify the matter of feeding this difficult material in a controlled way. 
The system may also be used for dosing lime or other powders.

Our laboratory is equipped to handle analytical tasks related to activated carbon.
