Features & Information

SPECTRUM’s offering to the electroplating industry; a carbon cartridge specifically designed to provide a sulphur free rinse in plating applications. The post filtration layer eliminates fine release, guaranteeing a clean and uncontaminated plating bath.


What is the primary purpose of the SPECTRUM SFBC-EL cartridge?

The SPECTRUM SFBC-EL cartridge is specifically designed for electroplating applications, with a focus on providing a sulphur-free rinse. It effectively eliminates organic chemicals and particulate matter, ensuring a clean and uncontaminated plating bath. It also prevents the release of carbon fines after the initial flush, guaranteeing a clean plating bath.

How does the SFBC-EL cartridge achieve a sulphur-free rinse?

The SFBC-EL cartridge achieves a sulphur-free rinse through its bonded powder carbon media. This media effectively captures and removes sulphur compounds, ensuring a high-quality rinse in electroplating processes.

Does the SFBC-EL also remove chlorine?

Yes, the SFBC-EL also provides chlorine, taste, and odour reduction, similar to the SFBC.

How does a carbon filter work?

Carbon filters work by utilising activated carbon, a highly porous material with a large surface area. When water passes through the carbon filter, contaminants come into contact with the activated carbon. The contaminants are either adsorbed onto the carbon’s surface or undergo chemical reactions that neutralise them. This process effectively removes impurities such as chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odours, and some heavy metals, resulting in cleaner and purer water.
