Lees Filtration

Lees-COR Systems for Lees Treatment

When it comes to challenges, KMS finds the solution. KMS Lees filtration systems demonstrate the most efficient design in the market to treat lees. Our Lees-COR Systems are complete tubular membrane systems designed specifically for the treatment of juice and post fermentation lees. Lees-COR systems are designed to treat flow rates between 5 and 40 gpm (1 and 10 m3/hr).

Lees-COR Systems Benefits

  • Robust system design to maximize solids level
  • Increased product yield
  • Reduced system footprint
  • Simple automated operation with safety features
  • Eliminates Diatomaceous Earth (DE)
  • Utilize KMS proven wide channel tubular modules

Caustic Recovery

Our Causti-COR® Systems offer a cost effective, environmentally friendly way to recover the expensive caustic solutions used to clean your process equipment. Causti-COR systems utilize our patented SelRO® membranes to recover up to 95% of caustic for reuse by removing low molecular weight organic and inorganic contaminants from your spent caustic. Our systems are available in small batch design for treatment of streams ranging from 5,000 to 50,000 gallons per day (1-8 m3/hr) and in large, pre-engineered designs for larger flow rates.

Caustic Recycling Benefits

  • Less spending on caustic and neutralization acids
  • Reduction in effluent volume going to waste treatment ponds
  • Lower energy consumption

Color Concentration

Our membrane portfolio is one of the largest in the market. Our experienced process engineers have developed different processes, utilizing various membranes to concentrate juice color. These processes use our sanitary Reverse Osmosis, Nanofiltration and Ultrafiltration spiral wound elements and tight ultrafiltration hollow fiber cartridges.

Membranes for all Applications

KMS' portfolio offers solutions to many separation and filtration challenges in the winemaking process. You can partner with us to address such processes, including:

  • VA removal (RO/NF with Ion Exchange)
  • Alcohol Adjustment (RO coupled with other technologies)

SUPER-G® Large Diameter Crossflow Tubular Modules
When industry required a super high-performance clarification solution, KMS developed the SUPER-G family of products. Remarkably durable, these tubular membranes can achieve the highest solids concentration seen in the market. Unmatched in the industry for beverage andlees clarification, these modules enhance color, flavor, and stability at high flux, effective cleaning and long life.
