Malcolm Pirnie's Granular Activated Carbon Treatment Experience

 Malcolm Pirnie

GAC treatment is a viable treatment barrier against emerging contaminants such as pharmaceutically-active compounds and endocrine disruptors and is highly effective for removing volatile and synthetic organic chemicals from ground and surface waters. In addition, GAC treatment removes taste and odor causing compounds such as 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) and geosmin and can thus improve (and protect) the aesthetic qualities of a water supply.

Malcolm Pirnie's GAC solutions provide the highest level of performance at the lowest cost. Our experience can help you deal with the issues of implementing a GAC process in a new or existing facility, including:

  • Incorporating the GAC facility within the hydraulic profile
  • Designing the facility to accommodate GAC loading and unloading
  • Management of recycle flows from the GAC process
  • Process optimization once operations commence

  • For more information, meet our experts, George Maseeh and Brian Leto.
