Overview

MECO Pure Steam Generators for Pharmaceutical-Grade Steam

MECO is the leading manufacturer of pure steam generators for pharmaceutical-grade steam, with hundreds of installations worldwide. We have the broadest product line in the industry, with sizes that range from as low as 200lbs. /hr. (90 kg./hr.) to 14,000 lbs./hr. (6,350 kg./hr.) of pure steam. MECO pure steam generators are designed in accordance with international pharmacopoeia standards, including sanitary construction features such as double tube sheet evaporators, sloped piping and low point drains, minimum dead legs, and sanitary connections. Each generator is equipped with the PID loop controls necessary for stable operation. Our generators also feature a condensing and sampling system to ensure product quality.

Notes: Pure steam capacities are dependent upon both the plant steam pressure provided and the pure steam pressure required. The capacity ranges shown above are based on 100-116 PSIG (6.9-7.6 BARG) plant steam pressure and 40-60 PSIG (2.8-4.1 BARG) pure steam pressure. A feed water temperature of 180°F (82°C), without the use of a feed heater, was also assumed.
