Premium Activated Carbon has thousands of tiny holes and crevices in which the water passes through whilst carrying minute organic particles, waste, dies and impurities from in your aquarium. This process is called physical absorbtion.
There are 3 basic steps:
Substances absorb to the exterior of the carbon granules
Substances move into the carbon pores
Substances are absorbed by the interior walled of the carbon
There are several advantages to be obtained from using smaller particles.
The activated carbon works faster
Larger surface areas
Effective where the water flow rate is much faster
Perfect for external filter.
