Liquid Filtration Vessels (RL Series)

RECO's RL Series Activated Carbon Adsorbents, are available for both rent and purchase and are engineered to treat liquid stream applications. Our RL Activated Carbon Filter Vessels can be used in a wide range of different applications including the removal of odor from Ethanol for the process of making Hand Sanitizer.

While the basic design is an activated carbon adsorption unit, the filtration media utilized by the RL series can easily accommodate a variety of media for the removal of:

  • Grease or oil
  • Dissolved or special organics
  • Bio-remediation contractor units
  • Suspended solids and particles
  • Catalytic reactor
  • Dissolved minerals
  • Dissolved metals

RL Series Applications

Our RL Series Activated Carbon Adsorbents are specifically engineered to treat liquid streams for a wide variety of applications. These units can be filled with activated carbon, zeolites, specialty clay, and sand/anthracite to name a few options. 

Our Standard RL Series construction is epoxy lined carbon steel with PVC internals. The external coating is high solids urethane. The standard pressure rating on a unit is 75 PSIG.

Standard features include

  • PVC internal collector array
  • Steel construction with epoxy coatings
  • Forklift skid and lifting eyes

Optional items include

  • ASME stamp
  • Custom sizing and pressure ratings
  • Seismic calculations
  • Various liners that aid in corrosion prevention
  • Efficient stainless steel internal collector array
