Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid)

Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) for filtration :-


Innova Corporate (India) Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) filter aid is Cellulose product. Virgin stock pulps are being used for Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid).

What is a filter aid?

A filter aid is a permeable layer from which impurities can be trapped, thus prevents premature clogging of the support cloth(Filter cloth, Wire mesh, Ceramic filters etc.)

Why Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) should be used?

Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) is fibrous structure, rough surface, large porosity, higher flow rate, less pressure drop and longer cycle time and is a food grade.


Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) is used both in beverage and industrial filtration and also for high quality product filtrations. It is an excellent filter aid because it precoats quickly, provides good cake stability, cleans quickly, prevents bleed-through and can be burned to reduce disposal costs.

Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) is good depositing media during filtration of galvanic baths and organic solutions.Many substances such as precious metals can be recovered by incinerating the filter cake. Due to fine fibrous structure and specific surface of the Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid), good filtration is obtained.

1. Condensate And Boiler Feed Filtration

Used To Remove Insoluble Metallic Impurities And Oil.

2. Rear Earth And Metallic Ore Filtration

Filter Cake Can Be Burned To Recover Product.

3. Brine Filtration In Chloro-Alkali Industries.

Used To Remove Solid Impurities Less Than 0.3 Micron.

4. Beverage Filtrations

Prevents Filter Aid Bleed-Through.

5. Emulsion Filter

Absorbs Oil And Breaks Emulsions To Prevent Contamination Of Screens.

6. Petroleum Filtration

Removes Emulsified Water.

7. Plating Filtrations

Removes Solids Without Threat Of Contaminating Filtrate With Soluble Silica.

8. Cooking Oil Filtration

Removes Fine Impurities, Thus Increases Clarity Of Oil.

9. Separation Of Catalyst

Some of the processes use catalyst to optimize reaction performance. It is usually added in fine grades (Large reactive surface). Due to fine separation of the catalyst from the corresponding reaction mixture is not possible, which we can get recycled by filtration with Precoat Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) fibre.


Used when soluble silica threatens the filtrate.

Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) for Filtration

Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) for brine polishing filter

Alpha cellulose, as an effective filter media has been well established and accepted for brine filtration with the advent of membrane cell technology. This filter aid cellulose has versatile advantages, is technically economical, and is eco-friendly too, since it is biodegradable. Polishing of brine is necessary to remove the solid impurities even less than 0.3 micron with the help of the filter aid coating on filters. Consumption (T/T of Sodium Hydroxide) of alpha cellulose is reported to vary from 0.27 to more than 0.4 depending upon the grade vis-à-vis the pressure drop requirement. Filtration cycle time varies accordingly in the range of 27 hours to 62.5 hours that also depends upon the flow rate.

There are a Dozens of advantages over Conventional Filter aid, as Follows.

  • Non-toxic: Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber is a 100% pure cellulose product and is absolutely non-toxic.

  • Biodegradable: Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber is powdered cellulose, manufactured from virgin pulp stock. Therefore, as a natural product, Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber is produced from a renewable source. Once Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber leaves the filter, it is completely biodegradable. When backwashes onto the lawn, Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber will mulch much like grass clippings. Once dried, incineration is another viable option.

  • Lightweight Product: Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber is significantly lighter in weight than traditional Diatomaceous earth (DE) material (approximately half the weight of DE). Because you use only 1/3-1/2 as much Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber to do the same job as DE, and experience 2-6 times longer filter runs, the quantity of Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber to handle and dispose is 1/10 or less the equivalent amount of DE.

  • Non-abrasive: As a soft, pure, cellulose product, Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber is easy on the filtration and Equipment in Arunachal Pradesh, especially backwash valves, pump seals, and impellers, heaters, and the piping system.

  • Improved Filtration: With Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber, you will experience 100% filtration. Being a fibrous material, Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber will often "Weave" over small ruptures in filter grids. All dirty pool water is forced to pass through a path of Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber, removing particles down to 2 microns. With no dirty water by-pass, your water will be polished to a new level of clarity never before experienced with DE. This 100% filtration feature is especially important of older, worn filter systems and grids.

  • Save Water and Chemicals: With longer filtering cycles, you will not be backwashing large volumes of chemically treated (and heated) water. There will also be less water required for backwashing.

  • Longer Filter Cycles: Nearly every pool filter when converted from DE to Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber experiences much longer filter cycles. Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber forms a filter coating or cake with far more dirt holding capacity than normal pool DE which results in longer filtering cycles.

  • Save Time and Labor: Because Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber is only half as dense as DE, when backwashing your filter, all of the Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber will easily wash away from the grids. Gone is the problem of caking, filter teardowns, and labor intensive cleaning. You will backwash and recharge with Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber in less than half the time.

  • Removes Oils: Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber as a powdered cellulose material has a natural affinity for body and tanning oils found in the water of every pool. When converting an existing system, Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber will "clean up" oils (filter cycles may be initially shorter) and reduce scum lines on your pool.

  • Mixes Easily: Pre-coats rapidly. Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber as a 100% pure cellulose product wets out extremely easily. Uniform slurry is rapidly achieved which form a more uniform coating or "cake" on the filter grids, resulting in a more effective filtration surface area.

  • Filters, Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber: Filter Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber will "top coat" the sand bed, enhancing filtration, and most importantly, Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber will completely backwash from the sand bed.

  • Economical: Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber is economically very competitive even with the lowest DE prices available. Customers have found that Cellulose Powder (Filter-Aid) Fiber is competitive and provides numerous features and benefits of operation that easily make it the filter media of choice over DE or any other media.

  • Inert: Cellulose is an inert against Water, Solvent and Alkalies.
