Onyx’s Synthetic and Cellulose Filtration Media is a specialty product designed to incorporate the adsorption and purification benefits of activated carbon with the functionality and filtration properties of a wet-laid sheet.

Product Features:

  • Carbon/Synthetic Blend or Carbon/Cellulose Blend
  • Low Pressure drop
  • Removal of particles larger than 5 microns (sand, sediment, silt, rust, etc)
  • Safe and effective way to prevent biofouling
  • Removal of dissolvable organics
  • Dechlorination Agent

Trace Organics with high probability of being adsorbed by activated carbon

  • Aromatic Solvents (i.e., Benzene, Toluene, Xylene)
  • Polynuclear Aromatics (i.e., Naphthalene, Biphenyls)
  • Chlorinated Aromatics (i.e., Chlorobenzene, PCB’s, Aldrin, Endrin, Toxaphene, DDT)
  • Phenolics (i.e., Phenol, Cresol, Resorcinol)
  • High Molecular Weight Aliphatic Amines and Aromatic Amines (i.e., Aniline, Toluene Diamine)
  • High Molecular Weight Ketones, Esters, Ethers, and Alcohols (i.e., Dextran, Polyethylene Glycol)
  • Surfactants (i.e., Alkyl Benzene Sulfonates)
  • Soluble Organic Dyes (i.e., Methylene Blue, Textile Dyes)
  • Fuels (i.e., Gasoline, Kerosene, Oil)
  • Chlorinated Solvents (i.e., Carbon Tetrachloride, Perchlorethylene)
