For larger, fixed installations, before any processing of spent activated carbon can be undertaken, management must be undertaken of the safe removal of the product from the treatment vessels, in which it has been exposed to the fluid or gas that has been treated. Jacobi Services in-house teams can provide the know-how and labour to undertake this delicate and sensitive procedure for our clients.
Once the adsorption system has been deemed to require a change of activated carbon (or other media such as ion exchange resins, such as Jacobi’s own ResinexTM brand, sand, anthracite etc.), decommissioned and is isolated from the process, the process of media removal can begin. Depending on the nature of the process, the carbon can be extracted either as a slurry to a specialised bulk transport vehicle, or pneumatically to IBC’s, both for removal from site.
