Figure 1-13. ROWPU - Generator Removed (Rear View)
Illustration denotes Army ROWPU. Marine Corps unit is skid-mounted with no generator or platform.
e. Figure 1-13 identifies the following parts:
MULTIMEDIA FILTER (1). Provides first stages of removing unsafe matter from raw water.
R.O. PRESSURE VESSELS (2). Loaded with rolled, thin films (called elements). Here, osmosis is reversed
by applying pressure to reduce dissolved solids from raw filtered water.
R.O. PUMP (3). Applies very high pressure to raw filtered water flowing through R.O. pressure vessels.
CONTROL PANEL (4). Panel on the control box assembly with meters, control valves, hose connections,
and electrical switches.
CARTRIDGE FILTER (5). Provides more cleaning to water coming out of the multimedia filter.
PULSE DAMPENER (6). Located behind the cartridge filter, reduces shock (water pulses) caused by R.O.
