Description

Apollo Command Module Lithium Hydroxide (LiOH) Canister Stowage Locker, measuring 16″ x 24″ x 6″, with two cover panels secured by six olive drab Velcro straps, marked with six "LiOH Cartridge" designations. The panels open to reveal six separate foam-lined compartments, marked inside with part numbers: "3V36-331020 47, 06362 NAA 6602." The back of the case is marked "V36 331020 31."

Lithium hydroxide (LiOH) canisters were used in the Command Module's Environmental Control System (ECS) to absorb carbon dioxide and remove odors from the cabin air. From the personal collection of Emmy Award-winning historian Farris Rookstool, III, and previously on exhibition at the Frontiers of Flight Museum for the 40th anniversary of Apollo 7.
