Coconut charcoal filter

Coconut charcoal filter one of the filter media in koi ponds that is often used is activated carbon or coconut charcoal. Due to its properties that can absorb chemical substances that pollute ponds, coconut charcoal filter is the choice of filter media.

In addition, a coconut charcoal filter is relatively easy and cheap to find. Characteristics coconut charcoal filter has smooth pores. And also is so numerous that it can trap the molecules of pool water pollutants. This makes the pool water clear and free from harmful chemicals. However, gradually the ability of coconut charcoal to absorb this dirt saturate nicely. So it is necessary to replace the new coconut charcoal periodically.

Not only for pool filter media, but coconut charcoal filter is also use for drinking water purification media. In pond water, dirt can come from organic waste from fish excrement. Food waste leaves that fall into the pond, and so on. After passing through the mechanical filter, these chemical substances have not disappeared from the pool water. They need filter on a chemical filter with activated charcoal.

Processing and Research Results of  Coconut charcoal filter And Activated carbon 

  • Coconut Charcoal Filter

From the results of research, it derived from coconut shells is the best type of granular filter. It use to reduce pollutant levels in pond water. The absorption ability of activated charcoal chemicals can reach 50%. 

Although the benefits of activated charcoal are quite large as a pool water filter medium. Before applying it to the pool filter, it needs to wash thoroughly so that it does not contaminate the pool. It is necessary to wash several times until the activated carbon is ready to use. Activated charcoal put in a container such as gauze before entering the pool filter system.

  • Activated carbon

In pond water treatment, activated carbon is generally use for absorb unwanted organic matter, such as color, phenol, detergent, cresol, as well as non-decomposable toxic materials. Activated carbon is a carbon compound that has an amorphous shape with a large surface area (450-1500 m2 / g). The large surface area indicates that its internal pore structure is also large. You can use it to absorb unwanted substances in water and gases.

What is the main function in water purification?

The main purpose of this water purification is to remove pollutants present in the water or reduce their content. So that the water becomes more suitable for eventual use. The technique of water purification itself is very important for human life. Either with natural techniques or[un with artificial techniques. One of the materials that can be used as a water purification material is coconut shells/coconut shells.

Coconut shells made into charcoal can be increased in economic value by becoming activated carbon. How to make activated carbon from coconut shells is relatively easy. Activated carbon serves as a water purification filter. Coconut charcoal filter is one of the activated carbon materials whose quality is good enough to be used as water-purifying activated carbon.


The conclusion is that in the process of water purification, this coconut charcoal filter functions as a water filter and also helps water absorption by utilizing activated carbon used for combustion. Thus the speed of adsorption as a water filter and water purifier increases.
