Specifying and Ordering C & S Filter Coal

The two accepted methods for describing a sizing specification for a granular filter media are by giving a Size Range with tolerances, or by stating the Effective Size and Uniformity Coefficient, with tolerances.

(Definitions of these terms are given in our data sheet on Sizing Definitions.)

James Cumming & Sons can supply under either method. Only one of these methods should be used, as attempting to use both can result in a particle size distribution that cannot be attained.

In Australia, the accepted technique is to specify the Effective Size and Uniformity Coeffficient.

For price quotations, your grading specification, quantity requirement and packaging preferences will be needed. The efficient sales staff at James Cumming & Sons would welcome your inquiry for a quotation or for any further information.
