Gusmer Enterprises Cellu-Flo Fiber Filter Aids On pressure leaf filters the basis for all good filter cakes is a sound precoat. Gusmer has been manufacturing the filter precoat materials that are used in wine 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.
