Diatomite in Pressure Filtration
    • Diatomaceous Earth Aids in Solid/Liquid Separation on Pressure type Filter systems such as: Pressure Leaf, Candle Filters and/or Filter Presses
    • Two Step Process:
      1) Precoat/Filter Aid is applied
      – The Basic Functions of the Pre-Coat are to:
      (a) Establish immediate filtrate clarity
      (b) Prevent blinding of the filter septum and prolong septum life
      (c) Enhance filter cake release, reducing filter clean up time
      (d) Maintain filtrate clarity throughout the filtration cycle
      2) Small Amounts of Diatomite or bodyfeed are added to the liquid filtered, trapping and removing solids from the liquid while maintaining sufficient permeability throughout the filter cycle
