Gusmer Enterprises Cellu-Flo Fiber Filter Aids

Bucher Unipektin Filtration Systems

Gusmer Enterprises is proud to be the North American partner for Bucher Unipektin. The company had humble beginnings in St. Gallen, Switzerland in 1938 and has grown to be the world’s leading manufacturer of off-the-shelf and turn-key filtration systems for the beverage industries. In 2013 the engineering division of Filtrox was acquired by Bucher Unipektin. Bucher Unipektin is well-known for their candle filters for pre-coat filtration with kieselguhr, perlite or PVPP, and they also develop, design and manufacture other advanced technologies such as ceramic crossflow filters, horizontal pressure leaf filters for beer and other beverage industries.

On pressure leaf filters, the basis for all good filter cakes is a sound precoat, and Gusmer has been manufacturing the filter precoat materials that are used in beer filtration for decades. Gusmer’s Cellu-Flo filter aids are widely used throughout the industry as a precoat because of their ability to form a fibrous matrix on the filter screens that provides a proper site for filter cake formation. This fibrous matrix also serves to protect the filter screens, virtually eliminates bleed-through, adds cake stability and allows for a quick and clean cake release at the end of the filter cycle. Cellu-Flo filter aids are available in many different fiber length distributions and formulations, including both cotton and wood pulp formulations, uncharged and charge modified formulations. Cellu-Flo RW and SL Series For Pressure Leaf Filters • Widely used for coarse and polish beer filtration applications as a precoat and bodyfeed adjunct • Derived from carefully selected softwood and hardwood cellulose and available in different fiber length distributions Cellu-Flo CLR and CLS Series For Pressure Leaf Filters • The best choice for ultrafine beer filtrations. Used as a precoat and bodyfeed adjunct • A must if preparing beer for subsequent sterile filtration • Derived from pure cotton linters cellulose and available in uncharged and charge modified (high zeta potential) versions and different fiber length distributions
