Koch Modular Process Systems - modular system construction

Modular systems

KMPS is a world leader in the design and supply of modular mass transfer systems
(skid-mounted, packaged, and turnkey units) designed for your application. 

Typical designs are for solvent recovery, chemical purification, polysilicon production, steam and wastewater stripping, PEG, MACT, and environmental regulation compliance, carbon dioxide and acid gas absorption.

Modular systems are complete process units that are prefabricated as much as possible in an indoor module fabrication shop remote from the customer's plant site. Using modular design and fabrication techniques can reduce the installed cost and shorten the construction schedule of your project.

Modular units can be installed indoors or outdoors. Modules can be sided to protect operating equipment and personnel.

Extraction column from Koch Modular Process Systems

Extraction systems

KMPS Extraction Technology Group specializes in the design and supply of
liquid-liquid extraction equipment for the chemical, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, biotech, and flavor and fragrance industries. 

Extractor design expertise includes KARR®, SCHEIBEL®, rotating disc contactor (RDC) columns, pulsed, packed (SMVP), and sieve tray.

In addition to the extractor, the system may include steps to recover and recycle the solvent. In most cases, these steps are accomplished by distillation. The extraction and distillation components can be supplied as a complete modular system.

Koch Modular Process Systems - Pilot Plant, Houston, Texas
Pilot plant

KMPS maintains a state-of-the-art pilot plant in Houston, Texas dedicated to the testing of mass transfer processes including distillation, liquid-liquid extraction, stripping and reaction chemistry. Research findings from the pilot plant are used for the design of full-scale separation equipment.

KMPS employs a staff of experienced process engineers who design the test program and interpret the resulting experimental data.
