Filsorb. Developed in the lab. Proven in the field.
Filsorb was developed to help solve a problem industrial fryers were having with FFAs and soaps when cooking oils were heated to high temperatures.
For two years Crystal Filtration engineers conducted R&D in our lab to perfect the formula. Filsorb was introduced at SNAXPO 2012. Filsorb lowers operating costs by extending the life of the cooking oil.
Led by our lab manager, Joby Ulahanan (see photo), our engineers have developed a formula for Filsorb for the food service industry that delivers the same benefits.
How Filsorb Works
Filsorb is a filter aid that when added to used cooking oil and filtered out will extend the life and renew the oil. Filsorb works by absorbing the by-products that are formed during continuous heating and cooking of oil.
These by-products are Free Fatty Acids (FFAs) and dark color compounds. Filsorb renews and keeps cooking oil fresh by absorbing these by products. After the oil is agitated with Filsorb and filtered, a 60-70% reduction in FFAs will be seen.
