Cost savings & Benefits
How does Celite Cynergy® differ from conventional DE filter aid?
Celite Cynergy® is similar to conventional diatomite (kieselguhr) in appearance and bulk chemistry. The primary difference is that filtration performance is improved due to a 15-35% reduction in cake volume—typically, xerogel users see a 15-25% reduction while hydrogel users see a 25-35% reduction. This filter cake reduction is due to the elimination of a separate processing aid (i.e. silica-based beer stabilizer) during filtration.
Advantages of Celite Cynergy®
- Improved filtration performance
- Simplified filtration / stabilization process
- Continued use of existing filtration equipment
- Reduced cost and complexity
