Through the research and investigation of filtration systems both micro-filtration and
ultra-filtration as well as reverse osmosis technology and techniques a conceptual a
conceptual Field Deployable Shower Unit (FDSU) will be designed for the Department
of Defence and for the potential use by humanitarian agencies and other Emergency
Services during deployment to the field and whilst on disaster and humanitarian relief
throughout the world. The FDSU will be designed to operate using supplied water or
brackish water, dam water, bore or river water up to a TDS of 20,000 mg/L. The FDSU
will also have the engineered redundancy to desalinate and process salt water on
occasion as required.
