Applied Minerals Filter Aids the Celatom Range – Supplied by Murphy and Son Ltd

Murphy and Son Ltd are proud suppliers of Applied Minerals Filter Aids

Flexibulk the established and respected filtration business formed in 1978 has now grown to form the Applied Minerals team who provide 37 years’ experience within the minerals market. As specialists Applied Minerals provide experienced technical knowledge alongside the highest quality products aided by our key partner EP Minerals, who we have been working with for 32 years.

Celatom Diatomite Filter Powder

Celatom is selected by many of the world’s major brewing groups. Supply is based on optimising the quality of packaged beer and cost reduction:

  • Celatom grades are manufactured from freshwater diatoms. The low bulk density of the cylindrical Celatom 3 D particle offers economies V’s competitor’s grades, less silica and more voids give greater internal bed voidage for flow and solids entrapment.
  • Supply is secured by product quality, technical support and good working relationship with site brewers.
  • Celatom grades are produced to EP Minerals World Wide Brewing Specification, meaning standards are set for trace elements such as Iron, Arsenic, etc. Celatom DE grades are naturally very low in beer soluble Iron and Arsenic.
  • Optimisation of costs of running the filtration plant, targeting longer run lengths, optimum clarity plus micro stability of the filtered beer.
  • Continuity of supply – prompt delivery ex UK buffer stock.

Isinglass – Murphy and Son’s Kleer Finings product range

We have over 100 years’ experience in manufacturing isinglass

In 2002 our processing aids portfolio became complete with the acquisition of the Saville’s Clarification product range and the manufacture of isinglass finings. This is the era when we introduced the “KLEER” range.

For many years Savilles Ltd were the leading name in the supply of detergents and processing aids to the brewing industry. Within this acquisition we also acquired 100 years of their experience with well documented research and development which help us to understand the physical properties and factors affecting its performance and its role in clarifying cask beers, and as a pre-treatment for processed beer.

Meet Pete Ball our Isinglass production manager

Meet Pete Ball, our best asset from the acquisition he is our Isinglass Production Manager and has been manufacturing isinglass for over 30 years. He now commutes daily from Birmingham to our site in Nottingham. There is very little that Pete doesn’t know about the production of isinglass.

Why use Murphy’s Isinglass finings?

Like all our products, our range of isinglass are formulated and manufactured here in Nottingham to perform to the highest standard, and will give you the consistent results you require every time you brew. They are also backed by the same commitment to technical support which you would expect from the Murphy & Son name.

If you purchase our clarification products you are entitled to free optimisations and full technical assistance.

All Murphy and Son isinglass products are manufactured under the ISO9001:2008 quality system. This system allows us to manufacture within strict parameters giving traceability and accountability from the raw materials to the finished product. With the modern drinks supply chain increasingly demanding quality and traceability only companies like Murphy and Son have the technical resources to fulfil those requirements.

To manufacture isinglass you must follow the approved manufacturing code of practice that has a very detailed washing procedure, to ensure the levels of potential allergens are reduced to the lowest levels. Our Isinglass is manufactured to this protocol. Anybody not following this protocol will need to label all small pack beer as containing fish products thereof, under allergen labelling regulations.

Our product range.

We offer three blends of Isinglass, Caskleer, Allkleer and Tankleer which are supplied as liquid, paste and powder. In addition we supply a unique product Kompactikleer which is a blend of Isinglass liquid with silica hydrogel to remove both protein and yeast from suspension whilst giving a compact trub.

The Caskleer products are formulated to give brilliant clarity in cask conditioned beer. The carefully selected swim bladders will produce large flocs that drop quickly and will enable beer to be resettled a number of times.

The Tankleer products are designed to give compact sediments and fairly bright but not brilliant beers. As such, they are suited to brewery conditioned beer processing where the clarity is sufficiently good to send the beer for filtration whilst tank bottom losses are minimised.

The Allkleer products are a combination of the above two formulations and are designed to give clear beer with good sediment in either cask or brewery conditioned beers

The Kompactikleer products are advanced formulations designed to provide the best in sediment stability. They are particularly useful where beers are difficult to clarify using standard grades of isinglass finings or where tank base angles cause sediment slippage during emptying.

isinglass

Look after your Murphy’s Isinglass finings and store correctly in the summer.

Please be aware of the ideal storage temperatures for your isinglass, this will help it retain its quality and effectiveness:

  • Store in cool conditions away from direct sunlight
  • Keep container sealed when not in use
  • Recommend storage temperature 5-15 °C
  • Minimum storage temperature is 1°C
  • Do not allow the product to freeze
  • The shelf life for ready for use isinglass has a recommended storage temperature is 8 weeks from the date of manufacture.

COMING SOON – MUNICH CLASSIC YEAST

yeast

Munich wheat beer yeast strain is used by a number of commercial breweries to produce a flavourful, full bodied and aromatic Bavarian-style wheat beer. The propagation and drying processes have been specifically designed to deliver high quality beer yeast that can be used simply and reliably to help produce wheat beers of the finest quality. No colours, preservatives or other unnatural substance have been used in its preparation.

Murphys will have some Munich Classic Yeast in stock in three weeks.
