Abstract:

A 400-hour evaluation test of a portable 200-gph vapor compression seawater distillation unit was performed to determine the units conformity to existing procurement specifications and its suitability for inclusion in the advanced base functional component system. A new concept in vapor compression distillation is described. In performance, the Aqua-Chem unit was comparable with the conventional vapor compression units but was 40 lighter and 55 less in volume. The unit produced the required 200 gph of distilled water, consuming only 1 pound of diesel fuel for each 300 pounds of distilled water produced. Author
