Milk Processing

Our specialty membranes outperform at milk pre-concentration.

KMS ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis membranes excel at removing water and selected components during milk filtration. These concentrated milk solids can then be sent for cheese production, ingredient use, or condensed milk products. Permeate from the UF step can be concentrated via RO and/or NF and further processed into lactose or permeate powder. UF and RO are also used to concentrate milk to reduce shipping volumes during transport to other facilities.

Whatever your milk separation, filtration, or transportation challenge, our global team of experts has solutions for it, solutions that may streamline and simplify your entire operation. It’s this kind of specialized innovation that makes us trusted partners to milk processors worldwide. We welcome the opportunity to assist you as well.
