Abstract:

The study evaluated many known means of converting aqueous shelter wastes into potable water. A comparison of various processes led to the selection of the three most feasible systems with a system of pre- and post- treatment and testing common to all. The processes selected as most likely to produce acceptable potable water are vapor compression distillation ion exchange and charcoal adsorption and Electrodialysis. Preliminary specifications of equipment, utilities consumed and estimated costs are given for each process. Water from the air, extracted by an air conditioning system, is discussed and recommendations made. Recovery systems are contrasted to the normal means of water supply and it is recommended that the conventional means of supply should ordinarily used. Recommendations are made for future research and development work. A bibliography covering the literature studied, charts and process flow diagrams are included.
