Diatomaceous earth (DE), Celatom, by EP Minerals, is a filtration media composed of microscopic diatoms silica structures millions of years old. DE is used in the beer and wine industries as an extremely effective economical filtration media to facilitate liquid-solid separating. DE’s uniquely strong cylindrical geometry shape and its 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).
Other name: D.E.
Packaging: 50 lb. bag and 1000 kg super sack.
