CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION
Section I. General Information
1-1 Purpose. This technical manual (TM) describes the operation and maintenance of the chlorination system on Water
Purification Barges. Information on other systems onboard is in TM 55-1930-209-1 4&P-1 thru P-3 and P-5 thru P-1 7.
TM 55-1930-209-14&P-18 and TM 55-1930-209-14&P-20 contain appendices common to all TM's. Location of major
barge components is shown in Figure 1-1.
1-2 Scope. The chlorination system generates a strong solution of sodium hypochlorite (commonly called chlorine) for
treating water produced by the Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Units (ROWPU's). Adding this solution to the water
makes it safe for human consumption.
1-3 Warranties and guarantees. Warranty and guarantee information is in Chapter 7.
1-4 Maintenance forms and records. Required maintenance forms and records are explained in DA PAM 738750, The
Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS).
1-5 Destruction of Army materiel to prevent enemy use. This shall be as directed in TM 750-244-3.
1-6 Storage. For storage procedures concerning this system, refer to Chapter 5.
Section II. Description and data
1-7 Description. The chlorination system produces chlorine in a sodium hypochlorite solution. A metering pump adds
this solution, upon demand, to water processed by the ROWPU system just before the water enters the tour drinking
water storage tanks. The chlorination system's major components are shown in Figure 1-2 for Barge 1 and in Figure 1-3
and for Barges 2 and 3. Major components are listed in Table 1-1. A chlorination system general working (block)
diagram is in Figure 1-4, and a system flowchart is in Figure 1-5. Chlorination system installation is shown on drawings
listed in Appendix A.
