FCI MX612GRC, coconut shell activated carbon is manufactured from carefully selected raw material and processed under a stringent production control environment to ensure maximum performance of the end product in the precious metal recovery process.

The high adsorptive capacity of this product, coupled with its\' superior hardness, render it especially suited to carbon in pulp (CIP), carbon in leach (CIL), and carbon in column (CIC) circuits.
