KMS Launches Causti-COR™ Nanofiltration Systems for Caustic Recovery
Published Date: March 13, 2017
Koch Membrane Systems, a global leader in membrane filtration technologies, announced the launch of Causti-COR Nanofiltration Standard Systems for caustic recovery and reuse. These systems are specifically designed to recover and purify caustic for reuse in food, beverage and industrial applications.

Causti-COR Systems offer a cost-effective, environmentally friendly way to recover up to 95 percent of caustic from solutions used to clean process equipment in industrial applications. Patented KMS SelRO® spiral wound elements allow purification of up to 20 percent sodium or potassium hydroxide at solution temperatures up to 70°C (160°F).

“Our caustic recovery SelRO membranes have been trusted for more than 20 years to recover high-value caustic streams,” said Manny Singh, president of Koch Membrane Systems. “Now, we’ve coupled unique features of SelRO membranes with our process and system design knowledge to create the Causti-COR line of standard systems. These systems recycle caustic for reuse, consume less energy, reduce material and disposal costs and lower effluent and waste discharge into the environment, thereby providing both an economic and environmental value to our customers.”

Six models of Causti-COR systems are available to handle flow rates up to 32 m3/hr (200,000 GPD). There are three batch mode systems for processing feed flow rates between 1 and 15 m3/hr (6,000 – 100,000 GPD) and three continuously operated systems for processing feed flow rates between 4 and 32 m3/hr (25,000 – 200,000 GPD). Custom-engineered systems are available to treat larger or application-specific flow rates.
