Cabot NORIT® Activated Carbons Increase Efficiency and Reduce Valuable Metal Loss for Catalyst Applications
Catalysts are a key component in most chemical processes including those used in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries. Cabot’s NORIT activated carbon products play a key role as carriers for precious metals in catalyst applications, offering strict product specifications and an increase in the efficiency of the catalyst impregnation process which reduces valuable testing and process time. The high crushing strength and hardness produce low abrasion that helps to avoid fines being introduced into the catalyst and reduces the loss of precious metals.
“Most chemical processes require a catalyst, making them vital to the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries,” said
When compared to other carriers, like silica or alumina, Cabot’s activated carbons provide:
- Greater internal surface area and lower cost per cubic meter
- Stable inertness in harsh process conditions such as acidic and alkaline solutions
- No interference with selectivity or activity
- Availability in powdered, granular and extruded shapes
- Easy recovery of precious metals and other non-ferrous metals from complex liquid streams
