The shocked coolant is then drawn through an ALAR rotary vacuum filter, a large, fabric-covered cylinder coated with several inches of diatomaceous earth, a natural filtering material.

The ALAR rotary vacuum filter is part of Recycle Technologies’ pre-stripping process and uses diatomaceous earth as the filtering medium.
