A waste heat desalination system from Meco, Sugar Land, Texas, will supply purified water for industrial purposes in Ripon, Calif. The Model ST540 will produce 90 gal/min and utilize waste heat in the form of low pressure steam. The steam is the byproduct of a power generation turbine that provides power to the local utility's electrical grid. Meco’s waste heat units typically are used in cogeneration and offshore desalination applications.

Meco designs and builds products for water purification serving industries in which water is considered a critical utility.
