Imerys is the largest producer of filter aids including diatomaceous earth (D.E.) and perlite with close to 100 years of manufacturing and application expertise in the filtration business. Imerys produces and markets DE filter aids for pools under its Aqua-Cel brand and perlite filter aids for pools under its AquaPerl brand.
Aqua-Cel (DE Pool Filter Aid):
Aqua-Cel is a high quality, diatomaceous earth (D.E., diatomite) filter media, specifically designed for use in swimming pools.
Imerys Aqua-Cel diatomaceous earth filter media is made up of diatoms, which are tiny, aquatic organisms. Their skeleton consists of silica, the second most abundant element in Earth’s crust after oxygen.
The remains of these diatoms form deposits of diatomaceous earth which are then mined, crushed, and dried to powder form, and subsequently calcined by heating in excess of 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit.
Advantages of Aqua-Cel
Improves Filter Operation
Pre-coats fast and effectively, improving filter efficiency.
Provides best clarity
Removes particles down to 3 microns.
Makes water safer
Filters out most potentially harmful bacteria.
Aqua-Cel can also be used in Sand filters to enhance clarity.
AquaPerl (DE Pool Filter Aid):
The new crystalline silica-free, alternative filter media for swimming pools.
Made from perlite, a naturally occurring mineral that contains no chemical additives.
Tested and Certified by NSF. The only perlite swim pool filter media with NSF certification.
Perlite particle sizes are carefully processed to optimize filtration performance.
Engineered for use in diatomaceous earth filters, and can replace both DE and cellulose in these filters.
Perlite is a natural mineral that is volcanic in origin. It is chemically inert and has a neutral pH.
Perlite is lightweight, non-toxic and environmentally safe.
