The project was inititated to design, fabricate, and test a thermoelectric system for the recovery of potable water from urine in aerospace applications. The unit built is an integral system, which yields quality potable water at a performance factor of 146 watt-hours per pound. It has a capacity of processing 12 liters of urine per day with a batch size of 1 liter per run. Further development work should be undertaken toward obtaining better efficiencies, a decrease in size, and a reduction in weight.
