Indeed I didn’t go in depth looking at that case #

Cass number doesn’t even matter. They are mis used in effect to only divulge the amorphous silica test result. Not really the on depth composition of materials. see certain types of silicas like process silicas are free and void of dust and unneeded particulate. Focused only on an engineered combination and mesh of silicas. Then there are organic ground pulled silica like DE. The issue is at typically those types and part numbers of a sea light 545 is much slower because of the salts and the dust and the powders and the unneeded unused combination of materials that are pulled out of the ground without being pre-processed. I’m a much bigger fan of pre-processed silica’s because they’re clean free from dust they flow faster and they’re more accurate

Which silicas exactly do you like to use?

Are these types of DE good as filter aides?

I like engineered mesh silica.

No, bare organic silicas have dust and small useless particles in them. U want to have a combination of large particles and fine crystals but no dust and Clay’s or salts. Remember de by nature has organic decomposed sodium molecules in it from previous life, that’s diatoms.
