KMS to Showcase WINEFILTER™ Products at Unified Wine & Grape Symposium
Published Date: January 2, 2013
Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS) will be an exhibitor at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium, taking place January 29-31 in Sacramento, Calif. KMS will present the WINEFILTER crossflow microfiltration element at booth 912 at the show.

KMS pioneered the use of crossflow microfiltration in the wine industry with WINEFILTER membranes, products that are well known for the production of clear, stable, flavorful wines. Wineries using crossflow microfiltration systems are recovering wine of higher quality and value when com¬pared to traditional systems.

“KMS enables hundreds of wine producers around the world to create premium wines with our customized filtration approach. WINEFILTER membranes can process all wines—including the most difficult reds—thereby delivering a one-step solution for any size winery. We’ve also streamlined the system design to make crossflow microfiltration easier to use and more affordable,” says David Akin, KMS Market Manager, Wine & Citrus.

KMS also offers a crossflow microfiltration system for lees treatment. Ideal for processing streams that contain high levels of suspended solids, this system has been used successfully by producers of both red and white wines to minimize waste, reduce operating costs, and recover quality wine from lees.

The Unified Wine & Grape Symposium is the largest event of its kind in the Western Hemisphere and hosts more than 650 suppliers and more than 12,200 attendees.
