MERSORB® HT mercury adsorbent has demonstrated Hg removal to < 0.010 μg Hg/Nm3. Applications include removal of mercury from Hot Synthesis Gas, & removal of Hg from Incineration Off-Gas to meet pollution effluent permit levels. For treating gases at temperatures > 150 °F (65 °C), we recommend MERSORB® HT mercury adsorbent.

CAUTION: Wet activated carbon removes oxygen from air. Thus, an asphyxiation hazard exists inside enclosed spaces containing activated carbon. Use appropriate safety precautions when entering vessels or other enclosed spaces containing activated carbon. Exposure to strong acids and oxidizers can cause formation of toxic H2S gas.
