We already discussed how Coconut Shell Activated Carbon are created by using coconut shells in our earlier article. The activated carbons can also produce by coconut charcoal. Activated carbons are much used to absorb the unwanted particle on liquid and gas widely. So in water treatment active carbons are widely use.So it’s widely use for get burn kilns. But these coconut shells are not mulched used as boiler fuel due to the corrosive effective of it.
Coconut Shell Activated Carbon are one of the most used fuels in so many countries. Due to the huge burning efficiency of coconut shells coals, it’s widely use for goldsmith, laundries, breaks and blacksmiths for full fill their burning requirements on their relevant industries.
The other main uses of coconut charcoals are use to manufacture activated carbons. We have discussed more about activated carbon uses in this article 5 unusual Uses of Coconut Activated Carbon .
Coconut shells flour is another important product which creates out of coconut shells. Coconut shells flour is also one of the main ingredients of manufacturing thermoplastic as filler. It’s also use as abrasive too. In our articleA complete Guide to Coconut Shell Powder Uses we have discussed more about other main uses of coconut shell flour.
Coconut shells are also use to create beautiful ornaments. The shells contain hard part so this can also carve and get polished.Coconut shells blower and drinking cups are also much attractive.
Like coconut husk, ash of coconut shells are also can use as fertilizer. These ashes can use s potassium fertilizer in agriculture. The percentage of potassium are higher i coconut shell ash.
The compositions of coconut shells are much like composition of hardwood. The moisture content of coconut shell is vary according to the environment conditions. Normally coconut shell has average of 7% of water content inside of it.
Coconut shell charcoal is fed continuously in to a retort in the activation process of these charcoals. The process also involves using stream by pre determined temperate for oxidation of materials. This process will produce carbon with pores of molecular dimensions.
As we mentioned earlier Coconut Shell Activated Carbon created by use of coconut shell charcoals. Normally to create one portion of activated carbon three portion of coconut shell charcoals are required. So to create one ton of coconut shell charcoals 20,000 of coconut shell are required. So 60000 coconut shells are needed to create one ton of active carbon from coconut shell.
Active carbon which created by use of coconut charcoals normally having cellulose based which also produce ultra fine pore structure.
The activation process of coconut shell charcoal can done by using different gases such as chlorine , mixture of air and stream and oxide of carbons.
The active carbon production and do in several ways such as vertical, horizontal or series of hearths. The method is also depending the manufacture of active charcoals.
The activation zone covers by the minor part of total space available which not common Patrice. The active charcoals which produce by use of coconut shell charcoals are one of the important industrial materials which come time use as raw material for main product.
The most common uses of coconut shell active carbon for water and air purification process.
Due to recent development of technologies, coconut shell active carbon applications are developed in to wide range.
In this article hope that you have understand the basic of active carbon manufacturing process.
We have discussed several article of benefits and feature of coconut shells and following are some of those articles.
