How To Make Activated Charcoal.




What do you think about this video?

Arka Biswas: start from 4:17 to save 4 minutes of your lives

AngryAdonyx: You are a god damn menace. Delete this freaking video, burn your camera & bury the ashes, call yourself a doctor, write a letter of apology to The Internet, and immediately turn yourself in to the authorities before the spirit of Gaia sees one of your attempts at creating an instructional video and has a reflexive immune response to purge our entire species from the collective pool of intelligent life.

Donny Slander: Activated charcoal uses for me currently is air filtering, water filtering and for my hair :D

Eva Adaobi: The video is so boring. 

Camilo Pagés: Thanks for your video. One question: you say 25% CaCl2 and 75% water, but how much per gram of carbon? If I have 1 kg of carbon, how many liters of water+CaCl2?

Kargadan: Very interesting video, wish you would show the impregnation and acid washing process. just a few pointers to people doing this. it is best to chop the wood(or any biomass) down to 2mm bits before applying pyrolysis(burning without oxygen or low oxygen) i guess the Co2 fumes from the initial burning takes care of low oxygen atmosphere. it is better if you have a method of steering the wood or biomass as it is becoming charcoal to evenly distribute the heat. a motor placed on top of your system with a simple stirrer would do the job. impregnation with zinc chloride is proven to be more efficient, but be very careful as it is very very acidic(ph~1) definitely wear proper gloves and goggles, best done under fume hood or somewhere there is wind. acid washing is best done with Hcl (3 molar or 1 molar but for me 3 molar gave the best porosity). and then wash with water until pH becomes neutral and heat in oven at 215 degrees C for 24h. It would be interesting if you could do a micro - porosity test with your system to see what size pores you got with this method and the surface area which is most important in activated charcoal. 

Watch Ryder: Surely you can use soft-wood for charcoal as well???!!

MrAshley160486: was very interesting because i use active charcaol for aquarium filtration systems thanks

David Hall: I'm confused about the lye thing .... If we can use activated hardwood coals to purify water it won't add harmful lye to drink like hardwood ashes can ? for like making soap? Can you explain the difference and why please ? 

Dan Holloway: Thank you Sir for the video and yes I do agree activated charcoal is wonderful stuff but I am a bit concerned that your description of the process of making it was somewhat incomplete. After reading the following it seems to me that carbonization is also need to activate the charcoal in addition to the chemical treatment. An ordinary household oven is not going to be hot enough to do the job. "Activated carbon is carbon produced from carbonaceous source materials. It can be produced by one of the following processes. Physical reactivation: The source material is developed into activated carbons using hot gases. This is generally done by using one or a combination of the following processes: Activation/Oxidation (carbonization): Raw material or carbonized material is exposed to oxidizing atmospheres (oxygen or steam) at temperatures above 250 °C, usually in the temperature range of 600–1200 °C. Chemical activation: Prior to carbonization, the raw material is impregnated with certain chemicals. The chemical is typically an acid, strong base, or a salt (phosphoric acid, potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, calcium chloride, and zinc chloride 25%). Then, the raw material is carbonized at lower temperatures (450–900 °C). It is believed that the carbonization / activation step proceeds simultaneously with the chemical activation.". Refer to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Activated_carbon 

mercury90hp: Im just fkn with ya.... But really, this video could have got its point across steaks.

EDGEAMAKATEDIDDIOT: MARINELAND Black Diamond Carbon is the crap

Abin Oommen George: what the freak is this he is wasting our time you can conclude it in 2 min

mercury90hp: I wish I had a nickle for every time you said CHARKEL

Thomas Jayabhai: Thank you very much for the video which is very informative and will help me to produce activated charcoal. Could you please tell me – suppose if I use 250 grams of activated charcoal for filtering water which is not muddy, how many liters of water can I filter efficiently before the charcoal becomes weak. Thank you.

blondegaijin: what do you recommend as a cheap, reliable source of the calcium chloride? Thanks for the great video..!!! ^_^

Mariano Robledo Diaz: Is simple , the only question is what is the rate of charcol vesus the 75% to 25% but haw much charcol?? 5 pounds 10 or 20 pds? thank you

Ist Geheim: How long is this activated charcoal storable, if you keep it dry? And is there a way to find out, wether it still has it's "activated characteristics" or not?

Stuart Beverly: Thank you I like the video.

Abin Oommen George: freak he is taking 8 min to explain this

KiKi JahDore TheStylist: Thank you for this!

Daphne Fowler: Question... what about using charcoal that is already reduced... for instance : http://www.amazon.com/Ozark-Hardwood-Lump-Charcoal-Lbs/dp/B0000CGECB/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&qid=1404742860&sr=8-16&keywords=hardwood+charcoal Then just adding the necessary chemicals and following the remaining steps. Will it work this way?

fuckofflalready: Cool. So how does one go about making "chem"?

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 survivalist.

John Wharton: Woody

Melvin Adkins: FYI...there is 2 to 9 million square feet of surface area in one pound of commercial GAC.

blackhatter011: เป็นสาระทีหาดูหยาก

June Wheeler: thank you. I had no idea the different between active charcoal and raw charcoal. thanks again

Cynthia Mobley: Great video! Thank you.

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 possible.

LIVER FLUSH MAN: Thanks for sharing and taking the time to make this video! Nice work!!!

Stuart Beverly: cool

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

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 not.

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

Camilo Garcia Benitez: Thank you Well done

froginthegreen: +LightestNebula9 Thanks for your time, effort and sharing . Good stuff .

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.

Matthew Stone: DIY Active Charcoal. Lot's of vids on making charcoal, very few on making it "active".

Noah Plaza: DIY Active Charcoal. Lot's of vids on making charcoal, very few on making it "active".

Shrimps: Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback. The reason I was able to get sales is because I offer rare shrimps for sale. Not many other online place is willing to take the risk at shipping high priced shrimps. That is my way of earning online.
