A major biotech company that produces lifesaving vaccines utilizes the MECO pretreatment and Vapor Compression distillation system in Singapore. The MECO system produces over 1,600 gallons per hour of Water for Injection (WFI). The pretreatment and VC system are the most energy efficient systems in the industry. MECO's GII Centurbo™ Compressor automatically shifts production output as needs vary, saving energy and money. Lowering system output by 25% consumes 40% less energy. This allowed the customer a shorter payback period due to utility and operational cost savings.
Desalinating seawater off the coast of West Africa is no easy task. The waters are shallow, warm and highly turbid with river estuaries contributing higher levels of silt and bacteria. MECO's enhanced ultrafiltration membrane system is rated at 71 m3/day and is designed to perform continuously without interruption. The life cycle costs of the plant are reduced through improved efficiency, lower maintenance and more time online. Typically, plants are designed to produce drinking water quality and high purity water for process operations.
A major producer of IV fluids utilizes the MECO vapor compression distillation system to produce Water for Injection (WFI) for their iv fluids in Guangzhou, China. The MECO system produces over 4,500 gallons per hour of Water for Injection (WFI). The VC system is the most energy efficient and reliable system in the industry. MECO's GII Centurbo™ Compressor automatically shifts production output as needs vary, saving energy and money. Lowering system output by 25% consumes 40% less energy. This allowed the customer a shorter payback period due to utility and operational cost savings.
MECO has designed and constructed two vapor compression desalination plants for the production of drinking and process water for offshore India in the Mumbai High oilfield located in the Arabian Sea approximately 160KM west of the Mumbai coast. The plants were designed to be fully automated and explosion proof. They were constructed of 90/10 copper nickel and titanium to provide corrosion resistance and long life. MECO VC desalination plants have been desalinating Arabian Seawater for over 80 years.
A major pharmaceutical company is utilizing a MECO reverse osmosis system as pretreatment to a vapor compression still to produce IV fluids in Mariacao, Puerto Rico. This custom MECO RO system produces over 1,000 gallons per hour (3,785 liters per hour) of water. The RO system incorporates all of the components and instrumentation required for operation, as well as the versatility to adapt to specific customer requirements. Technical parameters such as cross flowrates and membrane flux are among the most conservative in the industry. MECO RO units are also available in the MASTERpak™ series, a system that incorporates pretreatment, reverse osmosis, electro deionization and ultra-filtration all on a single packaged skid.
A major biotechnology company utilizes MECO's MASTERpure™ system to manufacture medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions in Limerick, Ireland. This custom MASTERpure™ system produces over 15,000 gallons per hour of Water for Injection (WFI) and 12,000 gallons per hour of pure steam. The process incorporates a patented ultrafiltration technology as a first line of defense to reject suspended solids, bacteria, viruses and organic compounds before they enter the downstream components. The process provides the highest level of water quality throughout the plant. The end result is a design that substantially reduces microbiological activity within the entire water system and minimizes downstream cleanings.
A major oil and gas company utilizes MECO's custom built reverse osmosis plant for drinking and process water needs in the extreme arctic conditions off the northeast coast of Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East. The plant is designed to withstand the effects of and operate in sub-zero temperatures and an earth quake zone. The system consists of two desalination trains producing 392 m3/day of desalinated water for drinking and a percentage as high purity water for process needs. The seawater piping and vessels are insulated and heat traced to withstand the arctic environment.
MECO's waste heat desalination system is supplying pure water for industrial purposes in Ripon, California. The system produces 90gpm and utilizes waste heat in the form of low pressure steam that is the by-product of a power generation turbine, which provides power to the local utility's electrical grid. MECO waste heat units are typically used in cogeneration and offshore desalination applications and are made of 90/10 copper nickel. MECO has been manufacturing waste heat desalination plants for more than 80 years.
A major bottled water company in Missouri City, Texas utilizes MECO's vapor compression distillation system to produce pure water for retail. The system produces 7,200 gallons per hour of distillate from a reverse osmosis feedwater source. MECO is a leading provider of pure water for critical manufacturing processes in the food and beverage industry. Our Vapor Compression distillers, Reverse Osmosis plants and other products produce quality feedstock and wash water for the world's sodas, sports drinks and food products.
MECO was contracted to design and develop the LWP and subsequently manufactured over 400 units in support of the armed forces needs for drinking water. The MECO LWP is the world's most advanced lightweight mobile water treatment unit. The LWP removes Nuclear, Biological or Chemical agents from the water supply, is set up in 45 minutes and operated by one soldier. It can be transported on a HMMWV or in a Blackhawk helicopter and is air transportable and air droppable. The system is capable of operating on highly turbid waters and can treat water contaminated by weapons of mass destruction (i.e. nuclear, biological or chemical agents). MECO LWP units are presently operating throughout the world in support of armed forces and disaster relief.
MECO has designed and constructed vapor compression desalination plants for the production of drinking and process water for a copper mining facility in the Atacama Desert in Antofagasta, Chile. The plants were designed to be fully automated and explosion proof and produce 360,000 gallons of water per day. The plants were constructed of 90/10 copper nickel and titanium to provide corrosion resistance and long life.
A major medical technology company utilizes MECO's MASTERfit™ system in Fraga, Spain to manufacture critical medical devices, supplies and equipment for the healthcare industry worldwide. The system produces over 1,200 gallons per hour of Water for Injection and 13,200 gallons per hour of pure steam. The MECO MASTERfit™ System saves utilities and maintenance relative to membrane-based pretreatment systems. MECO's patented sanitization process controls bioburden within the system without the need for an external clean steam generator. Simplifying system design while providing the highest quality in the remaining components ensures a cost effective and reliable means for producing either USP Purified or WFI grade water.
