Description

The Apollo 'kitchen sink'

Apollo food preparation water unit, measuring approximately 8.5 x 11.5 x 12, with an Airesearch parts tag affixed to the reverse, reading: "Reservoir Pot Water, Part 892150-3-1, Serial 75-112, Order NAS9-150, NASA 00400, Ref Spec ME901-0223-0041," with a date stamp, "Apr 17 1967." The front of the unit is stenciled "Food Preparation Water" and has two pull-switches marked "Cold" and "Hot," a spigot with a blue metal cap, and an area marked "Drain." In fine condition. Located in the Command Module's lower equipment bay, this is the unit that provided both chilled water for the drink packs and hot water for the food packs. The nozzle fits the openings on the beverage and food packs to prevent leakage of water into the cabin. A unique, identifiable piece of Apollo hardware.
