blondegaijin: what do you recommend as a cheap, reliable source of the calcium chloride?
Thanks for the great video..!!! ^_^
KiKi JahDore TheStylist: Thank you for this!
fuckofflalready: Cool. So how does one go about making "chem"?
Daphne Fowler: Question... what about using charcoal that is already reduced... for
Then just adding the necessary chemicals and following the remaining steps.
Will it work this way?
Melvin Adkins: Also you can buy one cubic foot of it for from ninety to one hundred and
fifty bucks. One cubic foot weighs 27 pounds. A pretty good investment
considering the work that goes into making it and the quality is
guaranteed. And....that is enough to last a lifetime for the normal
Cynthia Mobley: Great video! Thank you.
LIVER FLUSH MAN: Thanks for sharing and taking the time to make this video! Nice work!!!
Melvin Adkins: FYI...there is 2 to 9 million square feet of surface area in one pound of
June Wheeler: thank you. I had no idea the different between active charcoal and raw
charcoal. thanks again
shn lj: This isn't going to be a very effective product. Commercially the raw
material (here oak) is granulated into smaller pieces and soaked in the
salt solution first. Then it is heated to at least 500C in a low oxygen
environment until carbonation is complete. High heat and low oxygen are
key. That doesn't happen in a kitchen. This process might render some
activation, but it's not going to be on par with commercially produced
stuff. 20g will treat 500L of water for example. 20g of this stuff will
Cat the HerbalPrepper: Thanks, I appreciate the video. I use activated charcoal in drawing salves,
and have been wondering how to make it if commercial resupply were not
dave12546: you shouldn't make videos unless you're going to explain everything to
detail, you'll just get people in a lot of trouble, what are you using for
measurements, just guessing
Camilo Garcia Benitez: Thank you
Thanks for your time, effort and sharing . Good stuff .
Brian Berg: You effectively conveyed the process making activated charcoal. Your method
is in line with others I've researched and this video has made me more
confident in making my own activated carbon. That being said, your
cinematography could be better. Also you have a good speaking voice but
you should rehearse your lines. I can hear the script blowing in the wind
behind the camera.
comfortouch: Smoldering the wood also makes a lot of ash which needs to be filtered out
of your charcoal before the activation process. To be more efficient with
your wood, you should use a wood-gas stove to make the charcoal.
no dillinger: i used a old lawn-mower with a fine1/4"to1/2" .grate welded on the bottom
and a 6"wide and 2'long welded above the blade well like a big cuisinart
also ran the exhaust 6' away you can add the CC while chopping the charcoal
using a by weight formula and i do over a plastic gabage bin
Noah Plaza: DIY Active Charcoal. Lot's of vids on making charcoal, very few on making
Matthew Stone: DIY Active Charcoal. Lot's of vids on making charcoal, very few on making
craziedde1: Interesting study. And carbon probably works as good detoxifier. By
consuming all impurities. One concern would be to get it in the purest
form... cleaned and without Calcium Chloride or Zinc Chloride.
LightestNebula9: I'm sorry your first comment was flagged as spam. I'm pretty sure I wasn't
the one that did it. The charcoal should be submerged. It will soak it up
and when you check on it in the 22-24 hour time period all of the liquid
has been absorbed by the charcoal.
LightestNebula9: Really? Why did they do that? You are welcome and thanks for watching.
Tiger: Can you take bbq charcoal (like from Trader Joe's that claim it only has
Wood and starch without any chemicals) and just crush it and go directly to
the CaCl step?
Dan the man: Your dog was checking to make sure you weren't cooking up something good ha
Shawn Massey: WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND POUNDS PER DAY
OF ACTIVATED CHARCOAL??????????????
strata g: ok mate I had suspicion that was the case (common sense kicked in that very
night) with a bit more research ive realised the solution is just a
catalyst almost, makes perfect sense, as much as I can saturate in the
solution. gotcha :-)
Mike Kennedy: is the calcium chloride a solution when you buy it or a solid?
Angie S: can i make this to filter my fish tank?
Storm Viking: Time to make some moon shine!
LightestNebula9: You're welcome.
narc2323: thank you brother you're the only one showing how its done
beinganangeltreon: Wikipedia notes that a person could measure the filtering or absorption
quality of activated carbon with a measue of how much "iodine" or
"molasses" it absorbs Have you tried that I really appreciate the video. Is
there a way to make activated carbon without CaCl? will any chloride, later
rinsed out work? like nacl?
David Holmes: The reason for that is noteworthy...even worth bumping an old thread.
"Treated lumber" is treated by soaking it in an *Arsenic* solution. This
not only makes it most unpleasant for termites, but also unwise to burn (or
to turn on a wood-lathe).
blackbirght: what is the solution of Calcium Chloride or Zinc Chloride doing with the
penguin6636: Deicer. It's the salt used to remove ice from your sidewalk. Get it from
your hardware store in the winter.
LightestNebula9: I am seeing several comments have been flagged as spam. I am not the one
flagging them. I am going through and unflagging them.
LightestNebula9: If you are using bought lumber then yes you would have to soak it before
burning. If you are using natural hardwood like I do from my own woods then
you are ok.
Tomorer: What is activated about this charcoal? What do the chemicals do?
LightestNebula9: I would try my hardest to make sure it had no chemicals in it before I
would use it. But if it truly does not have any chemicals then yes you
ShattteredGlass: Can i buy CaCl or Zncl in shops ? maybe in general merchendise ?
ThinkingRebal: You can also do it after with the same effect. Wiki isn't always 100%
whateverbitches1: it's ice-melt for sidewalks...just check the label, some are potassium
johnstonalligator: Thanks dude
LightestNebula9: Just to be safe I would soak 24 hours then rinse it off very thoroughly.
markus goncalves: is activated charcoal the same as activated carbon?
Robert Tonks: treat two million litres,of toxic water produced by gas "fracking"
extraction process.being extracted on a daily basis in Australia I have
forty foot container pods soaking up the toxins. the rest is still very
hush hush due to patents pending I will reveal all as soon as this is done
Bro DayZ: If you need to clean two million litres of toxic water produced by
fracking, you should contact Dynasonic Technologies a U.S. / Canadian Co.
They remove oil from water & also Hydrogen sulfide gas from oil & are able
to remove 95% of pharmaceuticals from water & thats before the activated
