Advanced Recovery offers the service of thermal reactivation for spent carbon. Reactivation is the process of using high temperature and steam to produce an activating atmosphere which removes the contaminants from the carbon's internal pore structure. This process is very similar to the process used to manufacture virgin activated carbons. After the carbon is reactivated it is screened to remove fines, tested to ensure that it meets specifications, and packaged for use. Certificates of VOC destruction can be supplied on all carbon that is processed through the furnace and test certificates can be provided on all fresh carbon. Spent carbon has the ability to be recycled over and over again and still remain effective. With all impurities totally destroyed the recycled product can be rotated back into service at significant cost savings.
