Diatomaceous Earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. It has a high porosity, because it is composed of microscopically small, coffin-like, hollow particles.
Diatomaceous Earth is used as a filter medium and very suitable for water treatment and completion fluids, but also effective in other liquid filtration processes, such as beer, wine and syrups.
DE filtration with Twinlite in combination with our absolute glass fibre pleated cartridges will give an optimum filtration performance.
