Cabot Corporation Introduces a Series of Advanced Activated Carbons for Vapor Capture in Gasoline Fueled Vehicles
NORIT® CNR extruded activated carbons are specifically designed to more efficiently adsorb and desorb volatile hydrocarbons in automotive applications
As emission regulations become more rigorous in
“During refueling, the activated carbon in a vehicle’s ELCD canister must efficiently adsorb a large amount of hydrocarbon vapors quickly, upwards of 60 grams per minute. Then, when the vehicle is running, fresh air flows backwards to purge the activated carbon. The hydrocarbon mixture is then fed to the intake manifold as part of the fuel intake and burned,” explained
Our activated carbons for evaporative emission control applications are pelletized and offer optimal particle size in relation to pressure drop, hardness, density, and flow characteristics enabling the desired performance using less material. This is especially important for evolving canister designs that are increasing canister volumes to capture more vapor and promote maximum air flow for purging.
