New Download: Continuous potable water supply for fallout shelters and other isolated sites – final report

Note from Rich: Water is THE most important thing to consider in any prepping, survival, or disaster situation. While this particular report discusses some rather disturbing aspects of making water in extreme situations, it is still worthy of consideration and study…just in case.

Continuous potable water supply for fallout shelters and other isolated sites – final report

*Abstract*

  • In the manned space program, a good deal of effort has been devoted to developing a system for the recovery of water from urine. Processes involving the use of external power yield a satisfactory product only after extensive post treatment, usually involving physical chemical methods. This investigation centers on the evaluation of urine into water suitable for drinking or other uses in fallout shelters and other isolated sites. The capacity of the multiple and mixed bed ion exchange for the dimineralization of urine; and of activated carbon for the removal of urea, foaming agents, and color were evaluated. Reaction rates and products were determined for the oxidation of urea with calcium hypochlorite and with nitrous acid. The hydrolysis of urea without buffer using the enzyme urease was explored. A strongly acidic sulfonated polystyrene exchange resin was found to be effective for the removal of urea from urine. Experiments on the precipitation of chloride and carbonate, either present in urine or a reaction product, with silver salts were conducted.

Always ready to help others, he shares what he learns on multiple blogs, social sites, and more. With a background in preparedness and survival skills, training with county, state, and national organizations, and skills in all areas of media and on air experience in live radio and television, Rich is always thinking about the "big picture", when it comes to helping individuals and families prepare for life's little surprises. Since 1997, he has provided guidance, authentic government survival history, and commentary on why we all need to get ready for that fateful day in the future, when we have to get our hands dirty and step in to save the day. He is an award winning videographer (2005 Telly Award), has received state and national scholarly recognition (2006 New Century Scholar and All USA Academic Team), and is a natural with computers, technology, gadgets, small furry mammals, and anything on wheels. Rich likes making friends, solving problems, and creating solutions to everyday issues. He doesn't mind mixing things up, when there is a teaching moment ready to happen. As a constitutional conservative, he's staying quite busy these days. The SurvivalRing Radio Show at www.survivalringradio.com will be coming back SOON!
