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?”
