Activated Carbon Filter Aid

Cabot activated carbon charcoal

ErtelAlsop is a supplier of Cabot activated carbon in bag or in pallet quantities.  For more information please contact us.

Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal, is a form of carbon that has been processed to create millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms, resulting in a dramatically increased surface area. The surface area of activated carbon makes the material suitable for adsorption, a process by which impurities are removed from fluids.

ErtelAlsop proudly uses Cabot activated carbon in the manufacturing of our activated carbon impregnated filter sheets.

Please see below for a list of the Cabot activated carbon’s ErtelAlsop currently stocks.

SX Ultra

An activated carbon that is especially suitable for the decolorization and purification of pharmaceuticals and beverages, where the use of high purity additives is required. Superior adsorptive capacity, dedicated to obtain colorless liquids or white crystals and excellent filtration characteristics.

D 10

A steam activated carbon with high phenolic value that can remove taste and odor in food applications.


A powdered activated carbon with high adsorptive capacity, good filterability, and above average purity that is particularly suited for many purification applications such as treatment of sugar solutions, corn syrups, and fine chemicals.


Cabot activated carbon products effectively remove pollutants, contaminants, and other impurities from specialty chemicals, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, and more.

Food & Beverage

Cabot activated carbon products are widely used in the food and beverage industry to improve purity and desirability. From decolorizing liquid syrups and juices and purifying edible oils to deodorizing proteins, activated carbon plays a critical role in delivering consistent, high-quality results. You can rely on Cabot’s high purity, specialized activated carbons to help make your food products safer, more attractive and more appetizing to your customers.


As the global population continues to grow and medical technologies and treatments advance, the need for ultrapure, fully traceable pharmaceuticals increases. Activated carbon is an important tool in the purification of intermediates and end products for the pharmaceutical industry. With its adsorption capacity for a wide range of organic molecules, varying from odorous compounds to dark-colored bodies and proteins, activated carbon is often used for final polishing to remove residual color and odors.

Cabot activated carbon products meet stringent quality standards and are chosen for their performance and consistency.

Specialty Chemicals

Cabot activated carbon solutions are an excellent choice for the purification of raw materials, intermediates and end products for the chemical industry due to their exceptional adsorption capacity for a wide array of molecules ranging from odorous compounds to colored bodies.

Cabot Activated Carbon offers a broad product portfolio of activated carbons for chemical processing needs, ranging from achieving purity levels that meet exacting standards, to helping ensure intermediary products do not add contaminants that impact downstream processes.
