|DESCRIPTION: HYDROCEL is purified ALPHA
CELLULOSE. It is white to off white, odourless, tasteless, free from organic and inorganic
contaminations. It is insoluble in water, dilute acids, and in mostly all organic
solvents. Practically insoluble in Sodium Hydroxide solution. HYDROCEL, which has now
become a synonymous name in Welding rod, Enzymes and Filter aid Industries, is a must for
quality as well as quantity products.

| Shelf life/Storage condition
HYDROCEL is considered to be stable product and is packaged in a sealed manner. The product has no specific requirement for storage, and there is no expiration date. However, it may absorb moisture if exposed to the atmosphere with a relative humidity higher than 65%.
HYDROCEL is packaged in net 40 Kg in HDPE woven sack bag with inside two HM liners. Packaging can also be done in Fiber drums if required.
Application: -In casting material of welding electrodes HYDROCEL is used in considerable quantities. High cellulose content ensures correct burning of electrodes. HYDROCEL is a inert material and it leaves practically nothing after incineration and provides reduced atmosphere due to decomposition of organic material present in HYDROCEL thus it prevents oxidation. Resultant welding will be free from pinholes, cracks etc. HYDROCEL having wonderful free flowness helps in smooth extrusion of electrode without any cracks on its surface. HYDROCEL, which has now become a synonymous name in Electrode world, is a must for all of grades of quality electrodes.
Quantum to be used: The amount to be used in Welding Rod Industries depends on the quality of Welding electrodes and other ingredients in the flux. Percentage of HYDROCEL in Electrode Flux Reported is given below.
Enzyme Cellulase is being used in various industries for different applications. Enzyme Cellulase has demand in textile industry for fabric finishing and fabric softening, in detergent industry for colour brightening, softening and soil removal, in wine industry for clarification of wine, in protein industry for extraction of protein and in some more industries.
We offer Cellulose Powder as a substrate to utilize in Enzyme Cellulase production. Our cellulose powder is manufactured from special quality wood pulp. It is processed very carefully to remove amorphous part of cellulose and crystalline part of cellulose is retained. It is free from any harmful foreign material and is very good substrate for Trichoderma species. Our cellulose powder is already been used by some industries for making Enzyme Cellulase.
Supercel for filteration :-
VERSATILE, BIODEGRADABLE NATURAL ORGANIC FIBRE:-
NB's Supercel filter aid is Cellulose product. Virgin stock pulps are being used for Supercel.
What is a filter aid?
A filter aid is a permeable layer from which impurities can be trapped, thus prevents premature clogging of the support cloth(Filter cloth, Wire mesh, Ceramic filters etc.).
Supercel is fibrous structure, rough surface, large porosity, higher flow rate, less pressure drop and longer cycle time and is a food grade.
Supercel is used both in beverage and industrial filtration and also for high quality product filtrations. It is an excellent filter aid because it precoats quickly, provides good cake stability, cleans quickly, prevents bleed-through and can be burned to reduce desposal costs.
Supercel is good depositing media during filtration of galvanic baths and organic solutions.Many substances such as precious metals can be recovered by incinerating the filter cake. Due to fine fibrous structure and specific surface of the Supercel, good filtration is obtained.
1. CONDENSATE AND BOILER FEED FILTRATION
Used to remove insoluble metallic impurities and oil.
2. REAR EARTH AND METALLIC ORE FILTRATION
Filter cake can be burned to recover product.
Used to remove solid impurities less than 0.3 micron.
4. BEVERAGE FILTRATIONS
Prevents filter aid bleed-through.
5. EMULSION FILTER
Absorbs oil and breaks emulsions to prevent contamination of screens.
6. PETROLEUM FILTRATION
Removes imulsified water.
7. PLATING FILTRATIONS
Removes solids without threat of contaminating filtrate with soluble silica.
8. COOKING OIL FILTRATION
Removes fine impurities, thus increases clarity of oil.
9. SEPARATION OF CATALYST
Some of the processes use catalyst to optimize reaction performance.It is usually added in fine grades (Large reactive surface). Due to fine separation of the catalyst from the corrosponding reaction mixture is not possible, which we can get recycled by filtration with Precoat Supercel fibre.
10. ALKALINE FILTRATION
Used when soluble silica threatens the filtrate.
Alpha cellulose, as an effective filter media has been well established and accepted for brine filtration with the advent of membrane cell technology. This filter aid cellulose has versatile advantages, is technically economical, and is eco-friendly too, since it is biodegradable. Polishing of brine is necessary to remove the solid impurities even less than 0.3 micron with the help of the filter aid coating on filters. Consumption (T/T of Sodium Hydroxide) of alpha cellulose is reported to vary from 0.27 to more than 0.4 depending upon the grade vis-à-vis the pressure drop requirement. Filtration cycle time varies accordingly in the range of 27 hours to 62.5 hours that also depends upon the flow rate.
