BECOSORB 2500 silica gel is saturated non-swelling silicic acid xerogel with a maximum moisture content of 40%. The defined article size of BECOSORB 2500 silica gel is formulated especially for beer filtration. Uniform surface structure and pore size together with optimum pore volume guarantee that protein compounds of high molecular weight are adsorbed from the beer.
