JUICE FILTRATION Imerys DE and perlite filter aids for higher quality juices with preserved flavor
Filtering fruit juices protects overall quality, extends their shelf life, and preserves flavor. Filter aids are used for removing sediment, clarifying the juice, and reducing the number of microorganisms (including spoilage organisms) to protect the product.
Imerys offers a range of perlite and diatomaceous earth (DE) filter aids for early stage coarse filtration to final step polish filtration. Imerys filter aids can be used to recover juices from lees as well.
Our DE and perlite filter aids come in a range of permeabilities for achieving required clarity. Our DE filter aids, perlite filter aids and acid washed low soluble (LS) DE grades are great options for customers with ultra low metals specifications in their finished product.
Ultra Low Metal Grades
Kenite® LX grades
Imerys offers the full range of filter aids where low metals and low arsenic are of concern and DE is required to accomplish the filtration and performance results sought. Technical Data Sheets are available for these grades upon request.
Celite® LS grades
Our Celite® LS grades are certified to have extremely low arsenic levels where optimal control of arsenic and other leachable metals are of concern, expanding the limits of low extractable filter aids to an unmatched level.
