Filtering with Perlite
I am running a 3 sqM Velo with horizontal plates. The following is a typicla loadout for me:
Precoat with .25kg of celulose
Precoat with 1.2kg of 27m Perlite
Dose with 3.5kg of 27m Perlite.
We run at about 10gpm and have nice clear beer but the question has to do with the bell pressures. The book says I should hit 5 bar (72psi) at the completion of the run (22bbls average). Lately I barely hit 10 psi if I am lucky.
Am I using too much precoat? Does the bell pressure make a big difference? Should I just be happy that my beer is clear and leave it alone?
Any insight would be great!
