The results of developing thermoelectric “liquid-liquid”system to be operated in water regeneration apparatus on inhabited spacestations have been presented.

Attentionis given on computer optimization of thermoelectric system design with a viewto achieve maximum heating coefficient value.

Toimprove the system efficiency, special heat-exchange devices for work withcorrosive liquids have been developed.   The results of testing the system efficiency aregiven.
