CANSORB P High-Pressure, Activated Carbon Liquid Phase Adsorbers

CANSORB P High-Pressure, Modular Activated Carbon Adsorbers are designed to promote even flow distribution and efficient adsorbent utilization for liquid phase applications. The activated carbon adsorbers and water filtration vessels are fabricated of pressure vessel quality (PVQ) carbon steel to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) code and include a high solids epoxy lining. These systems are capable of operations where full backwash is required, including applications for backwashing activated carbon and for use as a multi-media filter.

Product Overview


  • Fabricated pressure vessel quality (PVQ) carbon steel and provided with a high solids epoxy lining. 
  • Where process conditions dictate, the granular activated carbon (GAC) adsorption vessels can be fabricated from other materials, such as stainless steel.
  • Newterra also manufactures ASME Section VIII code-stamped vessels
  • A different lining can be substituted for the high-solid epoxy. 
  • The liquid collection system is designed to promote even flow distribution and, thus, efficient adsorbent utilization. 
  • Manways are 18″ x 14″ elliptical located on top of the tank for easy access.
  • The liquid collection system promotes even flow distribution. 
  • The vessels are provided with legs and fork channels.


  • Designed for the removal of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from liquids, including perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) 
  • Capable of operations where full backwash is required
  • Fabricated from vessel-quality carbon steel
  • All systems are NSF International (NSF) Certified

Technical Specifications

Certified NSF International (NSF) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) 61 are a set of national standards relating to water treatment and set health effects criteria for many water system components. It establishes stringent requirements for the control of equipment that encounters either potable water or products that support the production of potable water.
