Dicalite UF

Diatomaceous Earth (DE): Calcined

Filtration

Dicalite UF is a calcined material produced as a baghouse product from straight calcined production. It cannot be precoated on metal screen filters by itself. Dicalite UF has a flow rate greater than Superaid but not equal to Speedflow. It is generally most acceptable for filtrations require a high degree of clarification. Dicalite UF gives more throughput than 215 or Superaid.


Dicalite WB-6

Diatomaceous Earth (DE): Flux-Calcined

Additives & Fillers, Filtration

All Dicalite Diatomaceous Earth (DE) Flux-Calcined products (except WB6) are considered a “direct-run” product. This means that the plant is able to produce the product as the desired product coming out of the kiln. As such the properties of these products can be directly controlled ensuring less variation in product parameters. Many other high-flow rate DE products are actually by-products, and not the direct run (or primary) product. By-products are produced in less quantity, and with lesser quality than a direct run product. In addition, it is more difficult to control the product parameters which translates into a wider variation in product quality, and therefore less quality control. The high-grade DE mined from the deposit at our Burney, CA location, in addition to the direct run processing, means that most our products are more consistent on our customers’ filters allowing less adjustment due to diatomaceous earth variations. This allows the customer to focus efforts on process variations without concern for the additional variations from their filter aid.

Dicalperl SOC-SF

Perlite: Perlite Ore

Agriculture, Construction, Expander / Exfoliator, Industrial, Pet Care

The Socorro plant produces crude perlite ore. The various ore products that are sold at Socorro are the result of controlled crushing and sizing to specified grades. The coarser grades of perlite ore are typically used as horticultural soil substrates. The medium sizes are typically expanded into aggregate and building products. The finest sizes are most typically used in chemical and industrial filtration as well as lightweight fillers. Furthermore, perlite as an amorphous aluminosilicate, falls in the category of natural pozzolans and when finely ground presents excellent pozzolanic properties that fulfill the ASTM C618-19 specifications. Natural Pozzolans are used as Supplementary Cementitious Materials (SCM) in ready-mix concrete applications, oil well cementing, cement boards production. The dome-shaped perlitic deposit at Socorro where Dicaperl is mining and processing its ore is considered world-class. In the United States, it is surpassed in size only by the No Agua perlite deposit in northern New Mexico, where Dicaperl owns a companion mine. Socorro perlite is shipped all over the United States, Canada, Mexico, and overseas.

Perlite: Milled Expanded Perlite

Absorbents, Filtration

Perlite filter aids are produced by controlled milling and size classification of expanded perlite. A prerequisite for the production of good quality perlite filter aids is a high-quality perlite ore. Most perlite ores are not satisfactory for filter aid production. Perlite filter aids are often touted for their 25% more filtering capacity. An outstanding characteristic of perlite filter aids is that they weigh 20% less than standard diatomaceous earth (DE) filter aids. Four pounds of perlite filter aid has the same bulk (volume) as five pounds of DE filter aid, and give the same filtering results in many applications. Hence, pound for pound, perlite filter aids often give you 25% greater filtering capacity, resulting in savings in filter aid usage of 20 – 30%. All but three of Dicaperl’s industry-leading perlite filter aids are direct run products, ensuring control of the product, density, and flow rate by expansion, milling, and separation of particle size.
