Flo King Products for Carbon Treatment

Depending on tank size, type of solution, and other variables, you can use a Flo King Carbon Cartridge, Carbon Bag, or Carbon/Resin Canister to remove organic impurities from plating and related solutions. All of these products attach to the Flo King pump quickly and easily. See video at this link. Carbon Cartridges are by far the most widely used of the three products.

High-Flow Carbon Cartridges

Flo King Carbon CartridgeFlo King High-Flow Carbon Cartridges are the natural choice for most plating and related solutions. They are made of 100% polypropylene, with absolutely no materials of construction that can deteriorate in solution. They also contain Flo King High-Tech Acid-Washed Pelletized Carbon—a clean, highly adsorbent material whose uniform shape enables more efficient loading than granular carbon allows.
    Carbon Cartridge Size: Outside Diameter, 2-1/2 inches (6.35 cm); hole diameter, 1 inch (2.5 cm); lengths, 4, 6, 10, 15, 20 & 30 inches (10, 15, 25, 38, 50 & 75 cm). See Carbon Cartridge Bulletin.
    As a general rule, use 10 inches (25 cm) of carbon cartridge length for each 100 gallons (380 liters) of solution. After using the cartridge, dispose of it in accordance with appropriate environmental regulations. Click this link for carbon cartridge instructions.

Disposable & Reusable Carbon Bags

Flo King Carbon BagsFor larger tanks or where organic contamination is severe, Flo King offers the Carbon Bag for in-tank treatment. The bags come in three lengths (10, 15 and 20 inches; 25, 38 and 50 cm) with the capacity to hold 5, 7.5, and 10 lb (2.3, 3.5 and 4.5 kg) of pelletized carbon. Use the standard disposable bag for one-time treatment; or, for repeated use, select the Permacore reusable bag, which can be emptied, cleaned, refilled with carbon and reused many times.

Reusable Carbon/Resin Canister

Flo King Carbon/Resin CanisterThe 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). Some operators even use the CRC with ion-exchange resin to remove metallic contaminants from very small tanks. Click here to view photos of new CRCs and replacement parts.
