Abstract: An initial study was conducted to determine the effects of raw water temperature on the finished water production rates of the Army's new 600-gal./hr Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Unit (ROWPU). This study showed that the finished water production rates decreased from 687gal./hrat a raw water temperature of 68.3°F to 348 gal./hr at a raw water temperature of 33.7°F. The report also has a list of suggestions on how to set up and operate the ROWPU on the winter battlefield.
