Performance Specs

Carbonxt PACs have been proven to perform better than or equal to other leading mercury sorbents in head-to-head tests. In many cases, they outperform brominated PACs with the use of little to no bromine or other halogen. The CXT family of products can be optimized for the specific application to minimize injection rates and costs for the end user. In most cases, this includes the addition of Carbonxt’s proprietary, non-corrosive additive to aid in mercury oxidation. Testing is encouraged to quantify results and economics, as well as to help optimize the product for the application.
