Imerys Filtration Minerals is a world leading supplier of engineered mineral products derived from diatomaceous earth and expanded perlite
Imerys filtration are one segment of the Imerys’ multi-mineral group. These diatomite and perlite natural raw materials possess unusually light density, chemical inertness, high surface area and intricate unique structures. Drawing on a wide range of minerals with many matching characteristics Imerys Filtration makes technical products that are essential for many industries.
Where can these filtration products be used?
Imerys Filtration offer a wide range of engineered mineral products derived from diatomite (also called diatomaceous earth or D.E.) and expanded perlite used in a host of applications, including filtration for liquid/solid separation. Perlites and DE filter aids are highly versatile and can be used across several industries such as plastics, film, rubber and liquid filtration due to their highly unique diatomic structures and low densities.
