Vapor Compression Distillation for Distilled Water

Vapor Compression and Distillation



The MECO VC features its patented technology, the GII Centurbo™ Compressor. This directly driven variable-speed compressor eliminates the additional parts, maintenance and ineffencies associated with belt drives, gear transmissions and flex couplings. The motor is liquid cooled and incorporates minimum quantity lubrication technology. There’s no recirculating oil system with filters, coolers, pumps, plumbing, valves and instrumentation. No oil and filter changes. Maintenance goes down. Efficiency and reliability go up. You get longer runtime and fewer headaches.
