Product: Carbon GC
Appearance: Black granules, 0.60 - 2.36 mm
Description: Ultra high-purity, acid washed, high activation, granular coconut carbon with optimum pore size distribution for the purification of alcohol after fermentation or distillation.
Characteristics: Internal structure with a pore-size distribution optimized for the adsorption of small molecular weight congener impurities that contribute to off-flavors and off-aromas.
High adsorptive capacity due to its high internal surface area.
Granular particle shape minimizes mess from carbon dust.
Application: For the purification of alcohol after fermentation or distillation. Especially recommended for purifying or polishing a fermented alcohol base prior to use in flavoured alcoholic beverages.
Suggested Dosage: For packing into a bed ideally 2 meters high with diameter of 350mm to maintain optimum ratio of 6:1 height to diameter.
Ingredient Declaration: Activated carbon
Instructions for use: Pack into a bed ideally with a minimum height of 2 meters.
The bed diameter should ideally be 350mm for a 2m height to maintain optimum ratio of 6:1 height to diameter.
Flush the packed bed with hot water and allow to drain before passing alcohol through via gravity feed.
For optimum performance is it essential to dilute distilled alcohol to 50% v/v prior to treatment.
