Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Wine filtration

WINE FILTRATION Innovative solutions for optimized filtration, lower dosing rates, less waste and increased capacity

Imerys first started supplying filter aids to the winemaking industry more than 50 years ago when large-scale filtration became common practice in commercial winemaking. 

Today, we are the leading manufacturer of Perlite and Diatomaceous Earth (DE) filter aids for beverage filtration, with nearly a century of production experience and applications knowledge.


As part of our commitment to provide innovation into wine filtration, Imerys has spent a long time talking to oenologists, wine producers, filtration service providers and oenological product suppliers to identify their main concerns regarding filter aid filtration.


Application specific benefits


  • Increased capacity requirements – ability to filter more juice during each filtration
  • Reduction in powder dosing – more efficient ability of the filter aid to “trap” must solids means lower dosing rates possible
  • Less juice losses in the spent filter cake – leading to increased juice being fermented
  • Less spent filter cake – lower powder dosing rates and less juice losses means less spent filter cake to be disposed of at the end of filtration

We offer a full range of custom formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
