Diatomaceous Earth (DE)
The most popular filtration powder used by brewers is diatomaceous earth (DE), which consists of skeletal remains of single-celled plants called "diatoms" that contain silicon dioxide.

Silbrico Sil-Kleer (Perlite)
Silbrico Sil-Kleer is a unique filter aid made from volcanic rock which is expanded and milled to specific grades. The resulting filter aid is an extremely pure, inert, white, light weight filter aid having a unique interlocking structure with myriads of microscopic channels. It affords optimum flow rates and sparkling clarity. When using Silbrico Sil-Kleer filter aid in place of other products, different operating procedures may be required. Silbrico Sil-Kleer should be used on a volumetric basis (i.e.: bag for bag) because Silbrico Sil-Kleer is considerably lighter than most other filter aid products. Standard grade from fine to coarse include -

Eagle Cel (Cellulose)
Used in conjunction with DE as pre-coating for rough and polish filtration.
