Hey Future4200 dudes,
I just recently read the Opaline Silica Thread and found out that Celite 545 may have negative effects that I was previously unaware of. It was also mentioned that there are alternative to Celite, but using the search function yielded no results. We handle all of our filter aides with caution and PPE, but if there are safer alternatives I’d like to familiarize myself to them and hopefully make the shift.
We only use Celite as a filter aid to assist in our winterization, or to prevent other media from passing through our filters. What are the alternatives to celite that we can use as a filter aide?
I apologize if I’m asking to be spoon fed, but I genuinely can’t find a discussion about alternatives.
