Abstract : A flushing chemical toilet designed for use with a temporary polar camp has been tested under controlled usage conditions. Careful observations of odor control, chemical action, and mechanical functions were made. The chemical used was satisfactory, but timer and pump maintenance requirements were excessive. It is concluded that chemical toilets can be used for a temporary polar camp. This unit will be modified and used at an NCEL facility near McMurdo Sound in Antarctica to gain additional data from field usage. Study of a simplified unit is recommended. (Author)
