Re: Flash Evaporation?

I was thinking of using heat from the jacket water, not the exhaust. You'd use the same two hoses that are used for an engine-sourced cabin or water heater.

Given the current draw of an RO system, you'd probably only be running it when you're running the engine anyway, so this would be no different.

I wasn't looking for a ship-sized unit. In fact, my question was basically about whether flash evaporation COULD be scaled down to fit in the engine compartment or under a cabinet.
