Utah DIATOMACEOUS EARTH – FOOD GRADE 1 LB Clearing Aid for use with DE Silica Filtration Systems Gardening and Grain Preservation (100% NATURAL) 6030B


An extremely effective and economical filtration aid used for nearly a century composed of microscopic diatoms,  an amorphous silica, natural silicon dioxide (SiO2) silica structures millions of years old.  We mostly use this in our garden to prevent unwanted insect pests.  It is more gentle on pollinators than other products and it is all natural.   I have also heard that you can worm pets with it.  Diatomaceous earth is the naturally occurring fossilized remains of diatoms, single-celled aquatic algae. It is a near-pure sedimentary deposit consisting almost entirely of silica. If viewed under a microscope, you would see diatoms have a wide variety of shapes and a honeycomb-like structure, making it an ideal filtration medium.

SAFETY NOTE:  Product makes a very fine nuisance dust.  Do not inhale, some persons may be sensitive.  See handling an storage notes below.

Also for use as an inert carrier or anti-caking agent in grain and animal feeds. an ideal blending agent in animal feed to eliminate clumping, especially in bulk storage and transfer applications.  DE filtration has a higher dirt holding capacity than other forms of filtration and a larger area of media compared to, for example, cellulose-based sheet filters. Using sheet filters the flow rate will start high but drop off. However with an earth filter it remains constant and it is possible to get relatively high flow rates.

  • Made of fossilized remains of diatoms (single-cell aquatic algae) deposited on the bottoms of oceans and lakes during the Miocene Age.
  • Comprised of silica with unique cylindrical shape, high porosity, and low resistance to flow
  • Forms highly permeable but rigid and incompressible filter cakes ideal for efficient and cost-effective filtrations.
  • Two-step application; first added as a protective layer (pre-coat), and then to maintain porosity (body-feed in pressure filters).
