Koch Membrane Systems Launches Causti-cor Nanofiltration Systems for Caustic Recovery

WILMINGTON, Mass. — 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.
