Diatomite Supercel

  • DIATOMITE SUPERCEL
  • Diatomite Supercel is a mineral of vegetable origin and is formed as a result of a large number of fossil diatoms accumulating. It is light, porous and has a unique honeycomb structure which facilitates filtration. Diatomite is inherently stable and uncontaminated by most trace elements. It is inert and insoluble in most liquids. This makes it is ideal for use by processors which have very high purity requirements such as food, beverages and pharmaceuticals.
