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
