Precoat filtration is a type of mechanical filtration that can be used to clarify liquids. Filter aids such as diatomaceous earth, perlite and cellulose enables a liquid to pass through while retaining the haze-causing particles.
The BECO FilterAid filter additive is an innovative technological filter aid used to form the first pre-coat for filtering beer and other beverages. The product can also be used during pre-coating of highly viscous liquids such as must, yeast, sugar syrup, and others.
BECOCEL® filter cellulose is a highly pure cellulose fiber material that is available in graduated fiber lengths and is finely fibrillated. Its fiber structure forms a loose but strong filter cake that offers an enhanced contaminant holding capacity. BECOCEL filter cellulose can be used as the only filter aid, or it can be added to other filter aids..
BECOGURTM is composed of very fine diatomaceous earth, providing maximum filtration efficiency for polishing of beer, wine, oil, pectin, sugar, vinegar, alcohol, gelatin, and other liquids with a low viscosity.
BECOLITETM is a medium/fine filtration perlite for the fining of liquids with a high opacity level such as beer, wine, fruit juices, priming solutions, oil, starch, gelatin, etc. Perlite is known to be inert and will not impart any taste, color or odor to the liquid being filtered.
