Cellulose Fiber filter aids

Cellulose Fiber filter aids Imerys supplies an extensive range of cellulose fiber filter aids to suit all food and beverage filtration capabilities.

Celite Fibra-Cel® are cellulose based products ideal for rapid pre-coating in beer filtration, especially when old or damaged screens are being used. Celite Fibra-Cel® offers a stable cake formation and can protect the filter cake against unwanted pressure shocks. It aids filter cake release during filter wash offs.

Multi-functional product properties:

  • Precoats rapidly.  Fibers quickly bridge openings in filter screens and cloths, especially openings too large to be precoated with ordinary diatomite or perlite filter aids. 
  • Promotes longer cycles. Fibers protect septums and prevent binding. 
  • Cleans rapidly. Releases quickly and cleanly from filter septums by backwashing or sluicing. 
  • Forms stable cake. Fibrous later resists pressure surges and interruptions
  • Prevents filter aid bleed through.  Fibers form a stable base for after pre coats and admixes of diatomite or perlite. 
  • Prevents mechanical leaks. Fibers can precoat comparatively large openings around gaskets and filter leaf seats. 
  • Separates liquid phases. Absorptive properties can separate different liquid phases from each other. 
  • Facilitates waste disposal. Spent cake may be incinerated to reduce volume for disposal.

Fibra-Cel Filtration Applications:

  • Alkaline solutions - where even small amounts of soluble silica are objectionable
  • Beverages - Excellent cake stability while preventing filter aid bleed-through
  • Food products - Superior clarity and cake stability with a pure cellulose filter aid
  • Petroleum - Removes emulsified water
  • Plating solutions - Excellent solids removal and cake stability with nonsilicous filter aid
