Very large internal surface areas characterised by microporosity along with relatively high hardness and low dust make these carbons particularly attractive for water and critical air applications such as point of use water filters and respirators respectively.

Activated carbon is a non-graphite form of carbon which could be produced from any carbonaceous material such as coal, lignite, wood, paddy husk, coir pith, coconut shell, etc. Activated carbon manufactured from coconut shell is considered superior to those obtained from other sources mainly because of small macropores structure which renders it more effective for the adsorption of gas/vapour and for the removal of colour and odour of compounds.
The activated carbon is extensively used in the refining and bleaching of vegetable oils and chemical solutions, water purification, recovery of solvents and other vapours, recovery of gold, in gas masks for protection against toxic gases, in filters for providing adequate protection against war gases/nuclear fall outs, etc.
Steam activation and chemical activation are the two commonly used processes for the manufacture of activated carbon. However coconut shell based activated carbon units are adopting the steam activation process to produce good quality activated carbon.
Process (Steam Activation)
The process of activation is carried out in two stages. Firstly the coconut shell is converted into shell charcoal by carbonization process which is usually carried out in mud-pits, brick kilns and metallic portable kilns. The coconut shell charcoal is activated by reaction with steam at a temperature of 900oC -1100oC under controlled atmosphere in a rotary kiln. The reaction between steam and charcoal takes place at the internal surface area, creating more sites for adsorption. The temperature factor, in the process of activation is very important. Below 900oC the reaction becomes too slow and is very uneconomical. Above 1100oC the reaction becomes diffusion controlled and therefore takes place on the outer surface of the charcoal resulting in loss of charcoal.

Coconut Coir Fiber is extracted from the fibrous outer cover of the fruit of the Coconut Plant. They are white or light brown in color. Our Natural Coir Fiber is spun to make yarn to make mats or rope. Coconut Coir Fiber, we produce is water-proof and resistant to salt water. We are one of the leading Coconut Coir Fiber Exporter in India. Coir Fiber is baled with the assistance of plastic straps, to ensure its high quality and utility.
Coir fibre is a natural fibre extracted from the husk of coconut and used in products such as floor mats, doormats, brushes, mattresses, etc. Technically, coir is the fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut. Other uses of brown coir (made from ripe coconut) are in upholstery padding, sacking and horticulture. White coir, harvested from unripe coconuts, is used for making finer brushes, string, rope and fishing nets.
Coir fibres are found between the hard, internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut. The individual fibre cells are narrow and hollow, with thick walls made of cellulose. They are pale when immature, but later become hardened and yellowed as a layer of lignin is deposited on their walls. Each cell is about 1 mm (0.04 in) long and 10 to 20 µm (0.0004 to 0.0008 in) in diameter. Fibres are typically 10 to 30 centimetres (4 to 12 in) long.The two varieties of coir are brown and white.Specifications:-Color: brown (natural)

COCO PEAT OR COIR PITH BLOCKS
Coco Peat Or Coir Pith Blocks is an Eco-Friendly soil substitute and soil conditioner made from coconut husk. The coir dust is washed, heat treated, screened and graded before being processed into various coco peat products. It has excellent wettability and high water retention capacity that ensures growth in the plants.The fibers increase the air-water ratio and this causes oxygenation which promotes strong and early root development and better crop yields.
COCO PEAT POLES work as supporting pole for POTTED PLANTS of indoor and outdoor gardens.It is mixed with sand,compose and fertilizer to make good quality potting soil. Being a good absorbent,dry coco peat can be used as an oil absorbent on slippery floors.It is also used as bedding in animal farms,poultry farms and pet houses to absorb animal waste so as to keep the farm clean and dry.
We offer best quality COCO PEAT in a competitive price. It is purely a natural organic product and it is environmentally acceptable from its sources through processing to end use.One kg of compressed coco peat will expand to 15 liters of moist coco peat.
Low EC coco peat for Agriculture.
High EC coco peat for Cattle Sheds.Available in 5 kg Blocks.
