Note: Coconut shell activated carbon is a common and effective purification material, widely used in water treatment, air purification, food processing, and other fields.
In recent years, coconut shell activated carbon has been hot and high-demand on the market. Coconut shell is actually regarded as garbage in our daily lives. How can we turn waste into wealth? Ready to make money with coconut shells?
Coconut shell activated carbon plant or factory is a professional place to produce coconut shell activated carbon, with different manufacturing processes and process parameters, to produce high-quality coconut shell activated carbon. We will deeply discuss the manufacturing process, technical points, and application of a coconut shell activated carbon plant, to help you better understand how to start a coconut shell activated carbon factory.
Starting a coconut shell activated carbon plant should be divided into five steps based on the activated carbon manufacturing process, including raw material preparation, drying and carbonization, activation, washing, screening, and packing.
Coconut shell activated carbon manufacturing process
The manufacturing process of coconut shell activated carbon mainly includes the following steps:
- Step 1: Raw material preparation: collect fresh coconut shells from coconut farmers. Then clean and crush coconut shells to remove impurities. After simple treatment, the coconut shell will be sent into the next section.
- Step 2: Drying and carbonization: Put the clean coconut shells into the furnace for drying treatment. After drying, the coconut shell is sent to a high-temperature carbonization furnace(or carbonization kiln) for carbonization treatment, transforming it into activated carbon.
- Step 3: Activation: put the carbonized coconut shell into an activation kiln for activation treatment. During the activation process, carbon is treated with gases or chemicals to obtain a larger specific surface area and pore structure.
- Step 4: Washing and drying: wash the activated coconut shell activated carbon with water to remove residual impurities. After washing, use a drying device to dry the coconut shell activated carbon to ensure that its moisture content meets the requirements.
- Step 5: Screening and Packaging: screen the dried coconut shell activated carbon to remove particles that do not meet the requirements. After screening, pack high-quality coconut shell activated carbon with automatic packing machine for transportation and sales.
Tips for Coconut Shell Activated Carbon Factory Owner
Using high-quality coconut shells
The quality of coconut shell activated carbon is closely related to the selection of raw materials. High quality coconut shells can produce activated carbon with higher specific surface area and more pore structure.
Control the temperature and atmosphere inside the carbonization furnace
Proper furnace temperature and atmosphere have a significant impact on the quality of coconut shell activated carbon. For different activators and activation methods, precise control of furnace temperature and atmosphere parameters is required.
Reasonable activation time
The activation time also has a significant impact on the specific surface area and pore structure of coconut shell activated carbon. Long or short activation time may lead to a decrease in the quality of activated carbon.
Moderate washing and drying
During the washing process, residual impurities should be fully removed, but excessive washing should not be carried out to avoid damaging the pore structure of the activated carbon. During the drying process, it is necessary to control the temperature and time to ensure that the activated carbon reaches the standard moisture content.
Applications of coconut shell activated carbon
- Water treatment: coconut shell activated carbon can be used for water treatment to remove organic matter, odor and heavy metal ions from water. In water treatment plants, coconut shell activated carbon is often used as a fixed-bed filtration medium.
- Air purification: coconut shell activated carbon can be used for indoor air purification to remove harmful gases and odors. In air purification equipment, coconut shell activated carbon is often used in the production of activated carbon filter.
- Food processing: coconut shell activated carbon can be used for decolorization and deodorization in food processing. In food factories, coconut shell activated carbon is often used for decolorization of food oil and deodorization of wine.
FAQ for coconut shell activated carbon factory
Q: What is the difference between coconut shell activated carbon and other types of activated carbon?
A: Coconut shell activated carbon is mainly made of coconut shell, has a high specific surface area and has a larger pore structure. Compared with other activated carbon, it is more suitable for water treatment and food processing, and other fields.
Q: What is the environmental impact of the coconut shell activated carbon plant?
A: Coconut shell activated carbon plant will produce some waste gas and wastewater in the production process, but through reasonable treatment and management, you can reduce the impact on the environment and maintain the environmental friendliness of the factory.
Q: How long is the life of coconut shell activated carbon?
A: The life of coconut shell activated carbon is related to the use of the environment and use, generally be replaced according to the situation of water treatment or air purification equipment, and the life can reach several months to several years.
