Description

What is in the Activated Carbon 500g Bag and how does it work?
 
Charcoal is carbon.  Activated charcoal is charcoal that goes through treatment with oxygen. During this process millions of tiny pores open between the carbon atoms. According to Encylopedia Britannica:
 
The activated charcoal contains millions of tiny porous holes that naturally absorb and cut odors from gas and liquid
 
The word adsorb is important here. When a material adsorbs something, it attaches to it by chemical attraction. The huge surface area of activated charcoal gives it countless bonding sites. When certain chemicals pass next to the carbon surface, they attach to the surface and get trapped.
 
Activated charcoal is good at trapping carbon-based impurities, as well as things like chlorine. Many other chemicals are not attracted to carbon at all — sodium, nitrates, etc. — so they pass right through.
 
This means that an activated charcoal filter will remove certain impurities while ignoring others. It also means that, once all the bonding sites become filled, an activated charcoal filter stops working. At that point you must replace the filter our Activated Carbon 500g bag.
