OREANDA-NEWS. September 26, 2016. Cabot Norit Activated Carbon, the worlds largest and most experienced producer of activated carbon, announces the launch of DARCO H2S HF activated carbon for odor control applications. The DARCO H2S HF product is designed to deliver superior hydrogen sulfide and odor removal while improving operational efficiency by reducing system pressure drop. Cabot will debut the new product at WEFTEC 2016, the largest annual water quality exhibition in North America, taking place September 24-28, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.

Many sewage treatment plants are demanding odor removal solutions that deliver improved efficiency while enabling them to consume less energy and reduce operational costs. Cabot has developed the new DARCO H2S HF high performance carbon solution with a larger particle size that gives the product a low pressure drop and high removal efficiency for harmful hydrogen sulfide (H2S). The high flow characteristics enable the product to operate efficiently under less pressure, while its high H2S removal capacity results in longer life and less frequent change outs, dramatically reducing customers purification costs.

Activated carbon is a common solution for H2S removal. However, many products do not have the high flow characteristics needed to provide optimal operational efficiency. We have engineered the DARCO H2S HF carbon with higher flow characteristics and properties that improve overall H2S removal and efficiency, said

William Krents, Global Market Segment Manager, Purification Solutions. To further help customers lower their total costs, ensure security of supply, and guarantee the highest quality standards, Cabot has made the strategic decision to produce the DARCO H2S HF product at our European ISO certified plant. Cabots European production operations are well-positioned to supply customers with this new odor control product without interruption, given that imports of European activated carbon entering the United States are subject to only a modest, fixed tariff.

DARCO H2S HF activated carbon is commercially available globally. To learn more about how Cabots purification solutions are addressing todays global challenges, please visit WEFTEC 2016 booth 3159.
