Abstract
AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE CURRENT ARMY RO WATER PURIFICATION SYSTEM A FREEZING BY EUTECTIC BULK INDIRECT CRYSTALLIZATION (FEUBIC) TECHNIQUE FOLLOWED BY ION EXCHANGE (IX) IS PROPOSED AS PART OF BULK RAW WATER PURIFICATION (BURAWP) SYSTEM FOR SEAWATER DESALINATION, AND REMOVAL OF NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL AND CHEMICAL CONTAMINANTS. THE FREEZING PROCESS REQUIRES NO PRETREATMENT AND INSENSITIVE TO THE FEED, LOW CORROSION/FOULING, HAS LOWER ENERGY CONSUMPTION, AND IS LESS COSTLY THAN RO. THE PROPOSED UNIT CAN BE BUILT TO ACHIEVE LONGER-LIFE AND IS SMALLER AND LIGHTER THAN THE CURRENT SYSTEM WITH SIMILAR CAPACITY.
