Activated Carbon Grinder

February 16, 2012

The Activated Carbon (AC) Gran-U-Lizer™ from Modern Process Equipment Corporation (MPE) is capable of achieving high yields (80–95 percent) on a wide range of target sizes (20x50, 30x80, 80x325, etc.), according to the manufacturer. Unlike conventional grinding equipment, the AC Gran-U-Lizer produces a narrow particle size distribution with fewer “fines” (dust), resulting in higher yields and less screening. The AC grinder handles all target ranges, and adjusts configuration in seconds, all at the touch of a button. MPE’s extensive product line ranges in capacity from 500-5,000 lbs/hr. and the AC Gran-U-Lizer is no exception as it targets a variety of activated carbon applications, including coconut, coal and wood-based carbon products.
