GC IPH

Pelletized Impregnated Activated Carbon

GC IPH is a coal based activated carbon specially impregnated for the desulphurization of gases and the removal of all acidic contaminants such as hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen chloride and mercaptans. It is also available in a coconut shell base.

CAUTION!

Wet activated carbon removes oxygen from air causing a severe hazard to workers inside carbon vessels. Confined space/low oxygen procedures should be put in place before any entry is made. Such procedures should comply with all applicable Local, State and Federal guidelines.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ!!

Precautions For Using GC IPH Activated Carbon

GC IPH carbon is a coal based activated carbon specially impregnated for the desulphurization of gasses and the removal of all acidic contaminants such as hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen chloride, and mercaptans. The following precautions should be followed when using this product:

  • Activated carbon can remove oxygen from air causing a severe hazard to workers inside carbon vessels and enclosed or confined spaces. Before entering such an area, sampling and work procedures for low oxygen levels should be taken to ensure ample oxygen availability, in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
  • Skin irritation or burns can be caused by direct physical contact with wet GC IPH carbon. This can also be caused by the heat of reaction of the caustic compound. If this occurs, flush the affected area with water for at least fifteen minutes. Contact a physician if the irritation persists.
  • Do not confine GC IPH carbon without operating fans. Inoperative fans may allow the formation of convective air drafts within a vessel. These drafts support the chemical reaction which occurs when IPH carbon reacts chemically with oxyugen to form carbon dioxide. This can cause a heat generating catalytic reaction. In worst-case scenarios, this heat buildup can cause a carbon bed fire. To prevent this, keep fans operating in order to provide airflows sufficient for heat dissipation. When the airflow is disrupted, sealing the vessel to restrict contact between air and carbon can prevent the chemical reaction. Liberal application of water will also slow the reaction. If water is added to the vessel, the carbon must be removed from the vessel or the fan must be started to remove any reaction heat from building up the moisture is removed from the carbon bed

Fans remove any heat that builds up due to ongoing chemical reactions. DO NOT TURN THEM OFF FOR AT LEAST ONE WEEK AFTER START UP, OR FIRE COULD RESULT.
