Activated Carbon is a non-graphite form of carbon which could be produced from any carbonaceous material such as coal, lignite, wood, paddy husk, coir pith, coconut shell, etc. Activated carbon manufactured from coconut shell is considered superior to those obtained from other sources mainly because of small macropores structure which renders it more effective for the adsorption of gas/vapour and for the removal of colour and odour of compounds.
The activated carbon is extensively used in the refining and bleaching of vegetable oils and chemical solutions, water purification, recovery of solvents and other vapours, recovery of gold, in gas masks for protection against toxic gases, in filters for providing adequate protection against war gases/nuclear fall outs, etc. Steam activation and chemical activation are the two commonly used processes for the manufacture of activated carbon.
Coconut Shell Charcoal
coconut shell charcoal is an important product obtained from coconut shell. Shell charcoal is used widely as domestic and industrial fuel. It is also used by blacksmiths and goldsmiths and in laundries. Shell Charcoal is also used to produce activated carbon. Activated Carbon produced from coconut shell has certain specific advantages as the raw material can absorb certain molecular species. Shell is carbonized by using methods like pit method, drum method, destructive distillation etc. The shell charcoal is the raw material required for the manufacture of activated carbon. The shell charcoal is manufactured by burning shells of fully matured nuts in limited supply of air sufficient only for carbonisation, but not for complete destruction. The output of charcoal in the traditional pith method is just below 30 per cent of the weight of the original shells. In India the average output in the traditional method has been found to be 35kg of charcoal from 1000 whole shells or about 30,000 whole shells yield 1 tonne of charcoal. Sometimes, especially when the processing is defective, the output is still lower and nearly 50,000 shells are required to produce one tonne of charcoal. To obtain good quality charcoal, fully dried, clean, mature shells should be used. Now several modern methods are in vogue for the production of charcoal. In the modern waste heat recovery unit the heat generated by the burning of coconut shells is used for drying copra and shell charcoal is obtained as by-product. Coconut Shell Charcoal is feeded into charcoal crusher machine in which granules are made. Granule size are decided by the rotary screener from which we can get granules size of our choice.
Coconut Shell Powder
coconut shell powder is manufactured from matured coconut shells. The manufacture of coconut shell powder is not an organized industry in India. The product finds extensive use in plywood and laminated board industry as a phenolic extruder and as a filler in synthetic resin glues, mosquito coils and agarbathis. Coconut shell powder is preferred to other alternate materials available in the market such as bark powder, furfurol and peanut shell powder because of its uniformity in quality and chemical composition, better properties in respect of water absorption and resistance to fungal attack. The product is manufactured in sizes ranging from 80-200 mesh. Keeping in view of the vast industrial uses, the demand for coconut shell powder appears to be promising.
Used In :
- Plywood and laminated board industry as a phenolic extruder
- Filling in synthetic resin glues,mosquito coils and agarbarties.
Preferred over other alternative materials availiable such as bark powder, furfurol and peanut shell powder due to its uniformity in quality and chemical composition,better prospects in respect to water absorbtion and resistance to fungal attack.

Shisha hookah coconut charcoal discs
are an often overlooked aspect of hookah smoking. All they do is heat up the shisha, right? What difference could your choice of coals possibly make? The truth of the matter is, aside from the type/flavor of shisha you are smoking and ensuring that your hookah is properly sealed and set up, the hookah coals you choose to use are the most important aspect of your hookah set up. Most novice users start out using quick light charcoal because of it’s ease of use. While it is true that quick lighting coals light faster than natural coals, in all other areas natural charcoals are superior. In this guide we are going to focus on the best of natural hookah charcoal which we carry.
