T-41® is both a filter aid and a powerful adsorbent with a strong affinity for heavy metals, pigments, oxidizers, and other contaminants typically found in plant oils. Increase your filtration capacity by adding T-41® to your filter stack and remove more natural plant pigments like chlorophyll, carotenoids, and anthocyanin compounds.
Based on naturally occurring resources, T-41® is a 5-200 μm acidic combination powder used in the purification of oils. It’s composed of acid-activated bentonite clay and activated charcoal, featuring a pH of 3.0–3.5. By activating T-41® its surface area has been expanded in order to increase its adsorption capacity and strength.
