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.

 

bulletXerogel users will take their current xerogel usage and double that to derive the Celite Cynergy® dosage.

 

bulletHydrogel 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?”
