Source for Filtration Resources

Recommended Posts

I gotta dope ass double cartridge filter cart coming from mack daddy Paul at ADE and I need some media to fill it.

 

I was hoping people would be willing to share some of their favorite sources for bulk purchases of.....

Activated Carbon (preferably coconut shell)

Diatomaceous Earth FP-4

Also, if anyone has a source for big blue cartridge filter replacements, inline cartridge filters, inline strainers, and regular filtration pads please let me know! Looking for people who are easy to work with, our supplier is frequently out of stock and often messes up shipments.

 

Cheers,

Slick

Cabot/Norit?  They are the best in the business, and will sell you a 40-50lb bag.  Not cheap, ranges from $7-12 a pound.

Carbons like PK1-3 (peat, what they recommend for vodka) and GAC1240PLUS (coal) are widely used in the spirits business.  SX Ultra (powder) for decolorization.

Cabot ROX 0.8 is a fantastic carbon as well, ultra high purity.  http://www.cabotcorp.com.co/~/media/files/product-datasheets/datasheet-norit-rox-08pdf.pdf

We have a local supplier that knows their stuff, General Carbon in NJ - https://generalcarbon.com/industries-served/distilleries-activated-carbon/ - They've built some huge spirits filtration plants down in the Caribbean.
