About Process Separation Filtration

Membranes are the solution to a wide variety of challenges.

Membranes are used in a wide variety of process separations applications.

In the food industry, stakeholders in this dynamic, competitive market are challenged to meet continuously evolving consumer demands for high-quality, safe, nutritious products while achieving efficient production and cost-effective operations. KMS membrane filtration solutions are a key step toward accomplishing these goals.

KMS offers a wide selection of innovative products for the dairy industry that are ideal for whey and milk concentration, production of whey isolates, and milk standardization. KMS UF and RO membranes, for example, remove water and selected non-protein components from milk so that concentrated milk solids can be transported to cheese producers at a reduced cost.

KMS also has extensive experience with protein concentration applications and has provided more protein-separation membranes than any other company, helping their clients to reduce operating costs while achieving outstanding product yields. Whether concentrating, purifying or clarifying gelatin, egg whites, soy proteins, enzymes or lysine, food processors can take advantage of KMS's breadth and depth of knowledge and experience.

Membrane filtration is emerging as a key enabling tool in industrial biotechnology. Rapid growth in this field has led to the commercialization of processes to produce both specialty and bulk chemicals, with membrane technology leading the way toward improved production and quality.
