Flo King In-Tank Carbon/Resin Canister
Carbon/Resin Canister CutawayThe reusable Carbon/Resin Canister (CRC) is made of a porous polypropylene tube with internal filter cartridge (see cutaway photo at left). Add pelletized or granular carbon to capture organic impurities. Sturdy tube construction provides long-term durability and facilitates refills. Available in lengths of 6, 10, 15 and 20 inches, and in diameters of 4-1/2 and 7 inches (11.5 and 18 cm). Carbon capacity ranges from 1 to 9 lb (0.45 to 9 kg). The CRC can be used on all Flo King pumps except the Lab Series. Click this link for CRC Instructions.

How Often Is Carbon
Treatment Needed?

Bright nickel and acid copper plating typically require frequent carbon treatment. But other solutions may need only occasional treatment or none at all.
Most platers conduct Hull Cell tests to detect the onset of plating problems, such as loss of  deposit brightness. At the first sign of trouble, they implement carbon treatment.
A good preventive maintenance schedule can usually be established based on these Hull Cell test results. Some platers have learned from experience that they need to carbon treat once a week or once a month, for example.
