This filtration media is activated bentonite clay with a neutral pH. It is used for winterization, oil purification, distillation, pesticide removal and product improvement. Recommended replacement for diatomaceous earth (shell soil as an insect deterrent).
It is designed for fast filtering and lower clogging than normally expected. Popularly used as the top layer of a filter bed.
The T-5 clay is good for scrubbing and then filtering out.
- Keep in mind: 10% carbon to clay ratio. 10% clay to oil mixture ratio. Warm the oil (90°c), add adsorbents, mix 30 min., then cool down (40°c) and then add a solvent and filter.
