Technology Overview

Objective

To develop and produce, by means of Atmospheric Water Generation, cost effective, clean, potable water using equipment that:

  • Is reliable
  • Supplies safe potable drinking water
  • Saves on power
  • Will be long lasting (about 20 years or longer)
  • Uses parts designed and built in the U.S.
History

Recognizing a world population that is rapidly expanding, and a worldwide water supply that is ever diminishing, a need for plentiful, potable water for the global population is imperative. To address this need, Air to Water Technologies, Inc. and other companies, like Air to Water Technologies, Inc., sought to offer viable solutions. In 1998 research and development began and in 2002 Air to Water Technologies was incorporated.

The competition is forced to operate their machines between 55°F/12.75°C and 100°F/37.75°C. These are forced to turn off or freeze up. Many issues had to be addressed and solved, such as producing water in extreme environments, from near freezing (33°F/1°C) to temperatures in excess of 120°F/49°C. Subsequently, other “strategic partners” were engaged. Air to Water Technologies, Inc. set up alliances with several companies that saw the need and embraced the solutions offered by the proven technology of Air to Water Technologies, Inc. Organizations that had never formed strategic alliances made an exception with our company. The most important alliance to date is in the area of production. Heinzen Manufacturing International, Inc. (Heinzen.com), a leader in manufacturing equipment for the fresh food industry, formed its first partnership with The Water Company.

Technological Benchmarks

Air to Water Technologies, Inc. has developed and patented the process that is the heart of the equipment. Air to Water Technologies, Inc. holds 3 patents with others pending. Between patented technology and trade secret technology, it allows Air to Water Technologies, Inc. equipment to:

  • Operate as low as 33°F/.55°C without hard freezing
  • Operate as high as 120°F/49°C while maintaining proper safety controls on the refrigeration system
  • Use a central proprietary controller system that maintains the coil temperatures, under the dew point while economizing on power, to manufacture water
  • Monitor functions including dew point, compressor temperatures, air flow for filter maintenance and maximum water-making capabilities
  • Use digital flow meters to check water volume
  • Provide alarm warnings for maintenance and potential problems
  • Enable monitoring of the entire unit on site as well as at any distance by the Internet
  • Manufacture in large quantities, healthy, good-tasting potable water
  • Develop and build enough units to produce the desired volume based upon the temperature, dew point and humidity at the exact location of the unit(s)
