Perlite Filteraid

Perlite Filteraids manufactured by Amol Minechem Limited are marketed globally under the brand name “DICAMOL® ”.

 

Perlite Filteraid - Dicamol®

Perlite provides maximum flow rate and clearness by the help of its notchy and clamped thousands of microscopic channels (voids). Perlite doesn’t change filtered liquids taste, color and smell. Perlite is not melting for every degree of mineral and organic acids.

COST ADVANTAGE - Perlite Filteraid Dicamol®
Perlite filteraid - Dicamol(R) provide 20-50% more density advantage to users for effecting costs. Density of perlite filteraid - Dicamol(R) are from 110 to 270 kg/m3 (7/17 lb/ft3). Dry density of perlite filteraid - Dicamol(R) differs between 100 and 200 kg/m3 (6/12 lb/ft3). Experiences around various industries show that using perlite filteraid - Dicamol(R) helping to decrease the cost of filteration-costs without making concessions on efficiency.

 

USAGE IN STANDARD EQUIPMENTS

Perlite filteraid - Dicamol(R) can be used with their pressurized and vacuumed equipments. If perlite filters are used in rotative vacuum filters; filter pulps can provide less cracks rather than other perlite filter aid. DICAMOL(R)’s exclusive processing system removes grit from the Filteraid thus making it as pure as possible. This also ensures longer life of filter equipment.

HIGHER FLOW RATES

Perlite filteraid - Dicamol(R) provide maximum clearness in highest level of flow rates. These are also applicable for liquids with higher density with syrup and gelatinized slurry. Efficiency can be increased by using perlite filteraid - Dicamol(R).

VARIATION FOR DIFFERENT LEVELS

Perlite filteraid - Dicamol® is produced for usage in every industry and satisfying the needs of flow rates and clearness.

EASY WASTE DISCHARGE

It is not a hazardous waste and can be easily disposed off.

INCREASE EFFICIENCY

Perlite filteraid - Dicamol(R) provide maximum clearness in highest level of flow rates. These are also applicable for liquids with higher density with syrup and gelatinized slurry. Efficiency can be increased by using perlite filteraid - Dicamol(R).

 

APPROVED BY INDUSTRIES
Perlite filteraid - Dicamol® are used especially in drink, food and medicine industries for filtering liquids. Never effect taste,color or smell and approved.

 

USAGE OF FILTER PERLITE WASTES AS ANIMAL FEEDING STUFF
Another advantage of perlite filteraid that they can be used as animal feeding stuff in many countries. This can decrease the selling costs of filter wastes. It is not a hazardous waste and can be easily disposed off.

USAGE & APPLICATION - PERLITE FILTERAID DICAMOL®

DICAMOL Perlite Filteraids are available in a full range of grades to meet the requirement of a wide variety of industrial applications from fast flow-rate to maximum clarity.

 

Solubility of DICAMOL Perlite Filteraid is extremely low in inorganic and organic acids at both high and low temperatures. Solubility in alkali depends upon the kind of alkalies, the concentration and time and temperature of contact.

 

DICAMOL Perlite Filteraids can filter out particles less than 1.0 micron in size.

DICAMOL Perlite Filteraids are used as:

PRECOAT:The liquid to be filtered is allowed to flow through a cake of Filteraid.

BODY FEED: Filteraid itself is added to the liquid to be filtered.
