  • Siliwash, Magnesol Supply

    I am looking for a group of buyers to divide and share a bulk purchase of siliwash.

    I repeat water wash and then dry wash using synthetic magnesium silicate called 'Siliwash' imported by Scintex, the supplying company.
    Recently they have decided to only market this in 1 tonne lots.
    I need about 100kg and they refuse to break a tonne lot.
    Are there any people who would like to share a purchase?
    I understand it is still supplied in 25kg bags so it would be easy to divide a tonne between several buyers.
    I live near Canberra NSW and would be prepared to coordinate the purchase. I can also deliver quantities to southern NSW and Sydney. (within reason.)

    Alternatively does anyone know of another supplier?

    Here's hoping, regards Tim

    Hi tbooth, Have you considered using sepiolite, which is the naturally occurring form of magnesium silicate. Here in UK I have found the cheapest way to buy it is as cat litter . It comes as small granules.

    Do you dry at all before using the media? I would not have thought ex w/wash bio (containing about 1000ppm water min) would dry to <500ppm by passing it through your media.

    A while ago I intentionally under dried a batch which showed 485ppm water. (using an IMB turbo dryer I usually get results of around 250ppm) I then mixed with magnesol and after a settling period did another water test which showed 315ppm. It does work but ex w/washed bio?

    It would be interesting for you to post your proceedure.
