Diatomaceous earth (DE), is a filtration media composed of microscopic diatoms silica structures millions of years old. DE is used in the beer industry as an extremely effective economical filtration media to facilitate liquid-solid separating. DE’s uniquely strong cylindrical shape, high pore volume and low resistance to flow make it the go-to filter medium.
Application: Two-step operation; first added as a protective layer (pre-coat), and then to maintain porosity (body-feed in pressure filters).
