Acid-free test for Activated Carbon

Saw a couple of posts asking for sources of guaranteed acid-free activated carbon.

Here is one way to actually test for that: 3D print a small carbon holding cube, have a small fan blow on it, enclose in a tupperware box with a few steel sbolts & drops of water. If any rust appears within 24 hours keep that carbon the HELL AWAY from your printer !
