FCI LPF, coconut shell activated carbons, are a series of products manufactured from selected coconut shell and possessing a high degree of hardness and adsorptive capacity. This renders them most suitable for all liquid phase applications.

The superior hardness of coconut shell activated carbons lead to a better physical cleanliness and longer life expectancy.

The superior adsorptive capacity, and surface area, render these products most suitable for the removal of organic substances, and other contaminants, in waste water. They are also most suited to drinking water treatment and other food grade applications.
