Type 1184 is a silver-impregnated coconut shell activated carbon specifically designed for bacteriostatic properties and trace removal. It is manufactured from coconut shells by high-temperature steam activation under rigidly controlled conditions. The silver impregnation of type 1184 carbon imparts bacteriostatic properties that inhibit bacterial growth on the carbon filter media. Silver exhibits a self-sterilising property called the oligodynamic effect that, although not fully understood, is recognised as an effective method for controlling microbial growth. The coconut base carbon substrate is specifically designed to be effective for adsorbing trace organic compounds such as trihalomethanes (THMs) and pesticides, as well as disinfection by-products and taste and odour compounds.
Type 1184 can be used in a variety of applications and is recommended when microorganism growth presents a problem. Used commonly in point-of-entry (POE) and point- of-use (POU) applications, the antimicrobial properties of silver impregnated on the carbon make type 1184 especially valuable in most water purification applications where bacterial growth on filter media can become an issue.
Some typical applications for type 1184 silverized carbon include:
Features / Benefits
- Providesbacteriostaticpropertiestostopthe reproduction of bacteria on filter media.
- Improves taste and odor of water.
- High quality substrate for the removal of trace organic compounds such as THMs and pesticides, as well as disinfection by-products.
