Abstract : It is essential that the U. S. field Army be provided with potable drinking water for culinary, washing, bathing, laundering, and food preparation purposes. In view of inherent complexities, a single multipurpose unit is needed which is capable of producing potable drinking water from whatever raw water source may be available. A reverse osmosis (RO) process is described which holds promise of satisfying this requirement. (Author)
