Activated charcoal sticks are a great way to naturally purify water. In this article, we'll teach you everything you need to know about activated charcoal water filters, including how they work and why you need one
What is an activated charcoal water filter stick?
Activated charcoal is a type of carbon that has been treated at high tempretures to have small, pores creating a large surface area that can adsorb certain molecules. This surface area is what allows activated charcoal to adsorb (not absorb) impurities from water and air. When used as a water filter, activated charcoal can remove impurities like chlorine, lead, and mercury from your tap water.
How do activated charcoal sticks work?
When water passes through an activated charcoal water filter, the impurities in the water are attracted and become bonded to the surface of the charcoal. This process removes the unwanted substances from the water and makes it safer to drink.
Activated charcoal filters work by adsorbing (not absorbing) pollutants from your tap water.
The process of contaminants attaching to the surface of the charcoal filter is similar to how Velcro works. This happens because both water and contaminants are polar compounds, meaning they are attracted to each other.
A charcoal filter is essentially a storage facility for pollutants, with the pores functioning as storage bays. The longer water spends in contact with the carbon filter, the more effective it will be.
The more contact time water has with the carbon filter, the more efficient the filtration will be.
