Vertex Aquaristik ROX 0.8 is the highest-grade, acid-washed extruded carbon on the market. ROX 0.8 is steam activated produced to the highest quality food-grade standards required by the FDA. Norit implements strict quality control in all processing stages to ensure consistency of every batch produced.
ROX Carbon offers unmatched absorption properties, high mechanical strength, extremely low dust content, along with superior pore size and structure, which are capable of absorbing a wide range of molecule and particle sizes.
These superior absorption qualities facilitate the capture and retention of:
- Colouring contaminants
- Water column impurities
Electrostatic attraction and chemical bonding is utilized to accumulate and trap contaminants to pore walls and/or outer pellet surfaces. Small pellet size and high porosity provides more surface area increasing adsorption rates to that required by the medical industry.
