Abstract:

A study was conducted to provide design criteria for a system employing multifiltration for reclaiming bacteria-free potable water from wash water, dehumidification water, and water recovered from urine. Based on the design criteria developed, a laboratory model was constructed and tested. The laboratory model consisted of a transfer pump, filtration units, a storage tank, and a dispenser. It was designed to process 22 liters of water each day during a 36-day simulated aerospace mission, with no major maintenance, replacement of parts, cleaning, or calibration. Provisions were made for the replacement of expendable parts, when required, in order to operate for 180 days.
