ATA 38 Potable water description Page 9/ 20

The potable water service panel consists of a filling coupling with a cap, a filling and draining valve control handle and an overflow port. The overflow port
is blanked off automatically when the service panel door is closed.
An inhibit system prevents closing of the service panel door if the filling and draining valve control handle is not the closed position.
The capacity of the water tank is 15 liters (4 US gal.).
Ventilation is ensured by passager compartment ambient air from a valve installed on the upper part of the tank. The shape of this valve prevents water
from overflowing during filling operations.

Operation

The potable water system comprises a filling system and a distribution system.
The filling system is composed of :
a standard filling coupling,
a manually controled, two-position filling and draining valve,
a filling pipe connecting the filling coupling to the lower part of the tank,
an overflow system consisting of a pipe connecting the upper part of the tank to the overflow port located on the service panel.

ATA 38 Operation Page 11/ 20

The potable water system comprises a filling system and a distribution system.
The distribution system permits water to be gravity distributed from the tank to the wash basin.
The distribution pipe taps water from the filling pipe, because the faucet and the connection are situated at different levels.
The distribution pipe will automatically empty when the tank is drained for maintenance purposes or for extended parking periods in freezing weather.
The faucet is a push-to-operate type. It closes and remains closed when not pressed.

The toilet service panel comprises a standard coupling (A) enabling the toilet tank to be drained.
The drain hose outlet is closed on the service panel by a removable safety plug and a cap.
Another standard coupling (B), closed by a plug, is used to flush and fill the toilet tank.
A waste drain valve control handle allows the toilet tank to be emptied .
The tank leakage drain outlet is automatically blanked off when the service panel door is closed.

The waste disposal and toilet flushing system comprises a filter motor pump assembly. This includes :
a flush motor supplied with 28V DC SVCE BUS,
the pump which has a capacity of 50 l/mn at 0.5 bar,
a filter basket which separates solid particles from liquid,
a timer which controls the flush cycle. The flush motor operates 10+/-2 seconds and the flush system is primed again after 6+/-2 seconds.

During filling and flushing operations, clean water from the service vehicle flows under pressure through the check valve and to the anti-syphon valve and
to the atomizer via a connecting pipe.
The pressurized water is used to spray and clean the filter basket of the filter motor pump assembly and the interior of the waste tank.
In normal flushing operation, waste water mixed with clean water is filtered and used for toilet flushing. The waste disposal and toilet flushing system is the
filter motor pump assembly. This includes:
an electrical circuit, supplied with 28V DC SVCE BUS;
a hose which ducts the filtered liquid from the pump to the upper part of the waste tank.

The evacuation system comprises:


a drain valve located inside the toilet tank, controlled by means of cable from the service panel;
a toilet waste drain which connects the lower part of the tank of the coupling on the service panel.
There are two types of draining:
the waste water flows through a drain line when the wash basin plug is opened. This plug remains closed as long as the control is not operated;
the anti-corrosion tank (located under the toilet tank) is drained automatically via leakage drain valve.
