DARACLAR​® Silica for Beer Stabilization​​

In 1964, Grace pioneered the use of silica gel as a beer stabilizer. Just a decade later, we began producing DARACLAR® GR920 hydrogel silica for beer stabilization. We patented the first fast filtering, high stabilizing xerogel silica and remain an innovator in the development of high-quality beer stabilizers, and more recently clarifiers. DARACLAR® silica technology is ideal for meeting the demands of today's brew masters.contact-us-banner-130x180.jpg

With low leachable metals content this highly pure and consistent protein adsorbent was developed specifically for brewing process to extend beer shelf life without impacting foam stability. It selectively removes hydrophilic proteins that factor in chill-haze.

The amorphous,non-crystalline, high quality of DARACLAR® silicas insure they are safe and effective. They are chemically inert, insoluble in beer, and easily and completely removed during filtration. DARACLAR® silicas meets the strict requirements of the "German Purity Law," is REACH registered and HACCP compliant. 




Introducing New DARACLAR® 9000HP - More Capacity, Productivity, and Value​

 

​By increasing productivity and product performance while decreasing environmental impact, DARACLAR® silica technology offers a cost-effective and more sustainable way to brew better beer. DARACLAR® 9000HP silica stabilizer is a "drop-in" solution for brew masters with no capital expenditure required. And, Grace's experienced, regional technical support professionals and brew masters are dedicated to providing highly-qualified support in the field and in the development of new solutions.

  • Can be integrated into all traditional beer stabilizing processes
  • No CAPEX
  • Reduces solid waste, water usage, and operating expenditures
  • Longer filtration cycles with less beer extracts lost during filtration
  • Reduce the need for DE therefore lowering total leachable metals in beer and improving food and handling safety
  • Less water usage due to increased filtration throughput
  • Fewer chemicals needed per hl of beer processed
  • Packaging flexibility

DARACLAR® 9000HP silica is engineered to decrease costs by reducing filter aid requirements and debottlenecking filter capacity all without compromising beer stabilization effectiveness.
