Seawater Desalination

We’ve been a leading provider of desalination systems for nearly half a century.

KMS is setting new standards in desalination technology, with high-performance membrane solutions that use less energy and leave a smaller environmental footprint than ever before. Our membranes deliver potable water to coastal inhabitants around the world, not only meeting everyday needs, but safeguarding against periods of low rainfall and drought.

Ultrafiltration followed by reverse osmosis has become the standard for treating seawater throughout the world, and our packaged and custom systems offer growing industries a single source supply, lowering desalination operational costs and making this vital technology more accessible to people in water scarce areas.
