Edible Oils, Oleochemicals and Biodiesel Purification
CynerSorb® adsorbents, a range of soap and phospholipid adsorbents with excellent filtration characteristics
CynerSorb adsorbents are highly permeable adsorbent filter aids that break down soap molecules and adsorb them along with metals and other polar impurities during purification.
CynerSorb adsorbent filter aids allow you to simplify, by replacing your water wash or dry wash process.
The diatomaceous earth (DE) structure of CynerSorb absorbents makes it a very strong filter aid that will not block or clog your filter; its rigid particles allow greater permeability. This complex structure provides greater adsorption of polar contaminants and solids removal compared to silica gel or magnesium silicate adsorbents. The unique structure also allows CynerSorb adsorbents to reduce total powder usage, enabling longer filtration cycles that operate at higher flow rates, and decrease product loss.

Maximize your yields through filtration with Celite diatomite filter aids
Celite filter aids maximize biodiesel yields as a result of improved filtration, dewatering, dewaxing and winterization.
Imerys offers Celite products to improve biodiesel production, product yield, quality of final product and increased recovery. Imerys filter aids include diatomite, perlite and cellulose and have been recognized as the stan.dard for vegetable oil and animal fat filtration for many decades. Products for use in edible oil and biodiesel filtration include Hyflo Super-Cel and Celite 545.
Celite filter aids remove impurities from biodiesel, such as bleaching clay. Hyflo Super-Cel comes from marine diatomite which is 5-30% more efficient than fresh water diatomite due to the diversity of diatom shapes. It makes filtering more efficient at particle removal and makes the filter cake more stable during typical biodiesel processes, such as switching pumps. The Hyflo Super-Cel filter aid also dewaters while it filters, absorbing trace amounts of water from fats and oils.
Celite 545 VO filter aid was designed for dewaxing, also called “winterization”. By increasing the number and size of wax crystals, it facilitates removal of wax from the biodiesel. This step is necessary in cold climates where biodiesel requires stability at low temperatures and high wax content would make the biodiesel unusable in cold weather.
