Clarcel® Diatomaceous Earth
Chemviron owns its quarries and deposits, with sustainable diatomite reserves for several decades to come, and offers a comprehensive range of filter aids marketed under the trade name Clarcel®.
Clarcel®- Calcined Grades: These calcined grades are obtained by the means of calcination of purified diatomite. The products appear as pinkish beige. They are aimed at separation of solids from liquids through fine filtration, leading to the retention of micronic particles.
Clarcel®-Fast Flux Calcined Grades: These fast grades are obtained by the means of calcination/activation of purified diatomite, with a fusible alkali. The products are white in color. They are aimed at separation of solids from liquids through filtration. They are especially adapted for the rough filtration of liquids with high solids load.
Clarcel®-Functional Fillers: These functional fillers are obtained by flux calcination and particle size selection of a diatomaceous earth. They are white in color and composed of more than 88% of silica.
Clarcel®- Natural Grades: This natural diatomite product has a silica content of over 85%. Its color is buff. The product is dried and milled to a selected granulometric distribution.
Clarcel®-Calcinated and Activated Grade: These filter aids are obtained by the means of calcination/activation of purified diatomite, with a fusible alkali. The products are white in color. They are aimed at separation of solids from liquids through filtration. They are also often used as a first precoat for mechanical protection of the filtration septrum.
Clarcel One®: Clarcel One® and Clarcel One+® mixed filter aids are used as a single precoat to ensure efficient mechanical protection of media and optimal clarification at the beginning of filtration.
