Key Properties

  • Excellent suspension and dispersion properties
  • >90% Amorphous silicon dioxide
  • <1% Crystalline silica (avg.), which reduces crystalline silica-related health concerns
  • Low carbon and metal oxide content
  • Highly porous 'micro-filter' particles
  • Low cake compactability
  • Absorption capacity 65-80% by volume
  • pH of 6.5 to 9.3

Filter Cake

  • Drier filter cakes decrease landfill costs
  • Filter cakes release easily, and are easy to handle

Process Advantages

  • Fast flowing, clear filtrate
  • Low pressure, low energy filtration
  • Higher filter press cycle rate*

*Depending on application

Worker Safety and Environment

MaxFlo® products contain less than 1% of crystalline silica (avg.), the Majority of which is non-respirable. This is a significant advantage for worker safety compared with products with 10% to 80% crystalline silica content. In addition, MaxFlo® products are made from renewable resources and are generated as part of a highly sustainable, agricultural-based production cycle. The products not only help in the filtration and proper disposal of industrial waste products, but are themselves part of the environmental solution, not the problem.
