N-10 Grade: The Fine Filtration Specialist

PURPOSE:
The N-10 grade stands as our premier choice for fine filtration needs, particularly excelling in rotary vacuums or filter presses. Its exceptionally small and shattered particles are tailored for intricate applications that demand high precision in separating solids from liquids.

EFFECTIVENESS:
N-10’s fine particles construct a formidable cake layer, transferring the filtration workload from the septum to the perlite filter aid itself. This transition allows for efficient trapping of solids while facilitating the clean passage of liquids. In rotary vacuums, it ensures that solids are effectively separated, leaving behind a clear, purified liquid.

N-20 Grade: The Coarse Clarity Provider

PURPOSE:
As our coarsest filter media, N-20 is predominantly used in filter presses, especially for wastewater applications. This grade is known for its economical value without compromising on performance.

EFFECTIVENESS:
N-20 utilizes its coarser particles to adeptly facilitate the separation process in filter presses. Its structural integrity allows for a pronounced separation of solids and liquids, resulting in clear filtrate and effective solid retention.
