Developed in Laffort’s SARCO laboratory, two cellulose pre-coat products are available either in pre-mixed or pure formulation. These preparations satisfy a range of technical specifications for use.
Prior to filtration operations, the formation of pre-coat is a critical step that determines not only the effectiveness of filtration and improves the clogging index, but also the length of the filtration cycle.
Made with different types of pure cellulose, ensures a perfect retention of the finest particles for improved clarification and brilliance.
Used during the pre-coat formation (400-600 g/M) or associated with diatomaceous earth (DE) or perlite.
Combination of diatomaceous earth (DE) and alpha- cellulose with a high zeta potential. Ensures an adsorption capacity to improve filtration and delay clogging.
Used during pre-coat formation (600-700 g/M).
DIATOMYL® B et R:
• Staple Cotton
• Alpha-cellulose fibre treated to increase electrokinetic potential
• Mixture of diatomaceous earth and perlites for a perfect retention of particles and optimal screening.
Diatomyl B and R present an absolute chemical inertia towards must and wines. They ensure better stability of the pre-coat throughout the filtration cycle.
