CATALYTIC CARBON is made of activated coconut shell carbon. This Granulated Activated Carbon which is (highly activated) by catalysed iron-hydroxide, which enhances the adsorption of contaminants that have negative charge. CATALYTIC CARBON is the only available Carbon in the market which is regenerable. Iron Catalyst has the highest Oxidation and Adsorption pores “Inside as well as Outside the Activated Carbon.

Media Description: High content (10%) Feroxyhyte (FeOOH) coated GAC
CATALYTIC CARBON Removal methods:
1. Mechanical Filtration (fine particles, TSS, Turbidity down to 1 micron)
2. Adsorption of organic contaminants
3. Adsorbtion of inorganic contaminants (e.g. As, Heavy Metals, Radionuclides)


Filtration (≤ 1 µm) of Removal of Best features Regeneration of Catalytic-Carbon with OXYDES-P
Total Suspended Solids Humic Substances Feroxyhyte coated Granular Activated Carbon Usage: 1% Concentrated Solution of OXYDES-P
Sediments Tanins & Lignin Very high surface area Usage: 1% Concentrated Solution of OXYDES-P
Turbidity Color & Odor (organic) Chemically Regenerable with OXYDES & OXYDES-P
Chloramines No mandatory dosing required
Trihalomethanes (THMs) Light weight media - saves backwash water
Phenols & p-nitro phenol Replacement frequency : every 2 - 5 years
All kind of Dyes pH regulation in the range of 6.5 - 6.9 is strongly recommended for removal of Cr(III) and As(III)
Phenols & p-nitro phenol
Inorganic (Arsenate, Arsenide, Chromium, Copper, Cyanide, Fluoride, Lead, Mercury & Selenium)





Polishing Systems

Watch Water® has developed a unique Catalytic Carbon and related systems for polishing a waste water stream to remove all toxic contaminants. The first system (System I) includes a pressure vessel containing Katalox-Light filtration media to remove selected contaminants from the waste water stream. In another pressure vessel, the vessel contains a bed of Catalytic Carbon. Both the systems are based on single bed down flow technology.
