Abstract:

This report describes the second and third year efforts of Westgate Research Corporation in developing UV-Ozone Systems for the Army MUST Program and for NASA Manned Spacecraft. In the second and third years, process variables of importance were studied on the bench and then in a URM pilot plant system. The URM Unit Reactor Module is a basic building block module which is designed to be unitized into a full-scale UV-ozone system for the Army MUST Water Processing Element WPE. Statistically designed experiments were conducted using both the bench system and the URM system. In these tests various compositions of synthetic waste waters, which simulate the permeate from the MUST reverse osmosis system, were used. Mathematical models of the bench system and the URM system were derived.
