  8. Long Term Uses of Potable Water Containing Silver Disinfectant in High Surface to Volume Ratio Metallic Surfaces

    SBC: Cactus Materials Llc            Topic: T6

    This project proposes a solution to the stability of biocidal silver in water treatment and storage systems of the International Space Station. Silver is known to react with some of the metallic (e.g. 316 stainless steel, Inconel 718, and titanium 6A1-4V) components of the water storage system, which result in a gradual loss of biocidal silver ions over time in the water.nbsp;Various studies have ...
