WHAT IS CELITE CYNERGY®?

Celite Cynergy® is a beer stabilizing diatomite (kieselguhr) product. It filters like diatomaceous earth and cold stabilizes like silica gel.

Celite Cynergy® replaces both conventional diatomite and silica gel. Celite Cynergy® can reduce total processing aids (silica gel plus diatomaceous earth) by as much as 50%.

HOW IS CELITE CYNERGY® USED?

The physical properties of Celite Cynergy® are similar to diatomite (kieselguhr). Celite Cynergy® runs on existing diatomaceous earth filtration systems so there is no need for capital equipment purchases.

Celite Cynergy® application rates can be estimated by using your current xerogel or hydrogel usage. Also, your current filter aid usage can be significantly reduced.

  • Xerogel users will take their current xerogel usage and double that to derive the Celite Cynergy® dosage.
  • Hydrogel users will take their current hydrogel usage and repeat it to derive the Celite Cynergy® dosage.

IS CELITE CYNERGY® APPROVED FOR BEER PRODUCTION?

As a diatomite product, it meets the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements of Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for use in beer filtration. It is a Food Chemical Codex (FCC) grade diatomite product.

Celite Cynergy® does not introduce any “new materials” and is approved for beer processing by both the FDA and the U.S. Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB).

HOW WILL CELITE CYNERGY® AFFECT MY FILTRATION CAPACITY?

Celite Cynergy® increases your filtration capacity because it reduces filter cake volume by up to 50%. See above example, “How is Celite Cynergy®used?”

Introduction

Celite Cynergy® is a beer stabilizing diatomite product that filters like diatomaceous earth (kieselguhr) and cold stabilizes like silica gel, yet performs better than conventional diatomaceous earth and silica gel. When utilizing Celite Cynergy® material volume decreases, resulting in reduced waste, less cleaning and more storage space, thereby...
