This report describes the field research capabilities of the 10-ft wide by 40-ft long transportable research facility and summarizes its design, construction, and operation. With an October 1981 replacement value of $182,000, the mobile facility contains a complete analytical laboratory and an 8 L/min pilot plant with interconnected RO, IX, AAl, and EDR units. The treatment technologies applicable to a given contaminant removal problem are operated separately over a period of several months. The resulting performance data for all processes are then compared on technical and economic bases and appropriate general recommendations are made for that type of contaminant removal problem.
