AWG is the abbreviation of the Atmospheric Water Generator which is called Airwater machine or Airwater generator.
Atmospheric water generation is a latest technology-based process used to condense water from the air, then capture and filter that moisture into drinkable water.
ATC’s newest technology will produce clean water effectively and economically from the air with humidity as low as 50%.
This technology demonstrates cost savings and other notable advantages compared to desalination.
Optimal water generation depends on average temperature and relative humidity.
Higher humidity and temperature conditions improve the cost effectiveness of producing clean water.
There are several notable aspects that define ATC as a leader in the atmospheric water generation industry.
- Products can run on 100% outside air, which is essential for high condensate production.
- Patented and exclusive coil used to eliminate metal oxide contamination or bacterial deposits.
- Advanced filtering technology to ensure a reliable supply of fresh, pure, clean drinking water.
- Easy to use, just turn it on and touch the button to get water.
- Easy to maintain, just replace water and air filters periodically per ATC guidelines and do some occasional cleaning.
- Commercial and Community water units can provide scalable solutions for delivery of clean drinking water by linking multiple units to meet volume demands.
- Employs a high standard of purification of water from bacteria, air pollution and metal oxides.
- Unit performance and maintenance needs can be monitored remotely by Managing company (Optional models and commercial and community models only).
Water production can range from up to 20 liters per day for home and office models, to more than 1,000 liters per day for the community or commercial models, called industrial models.
Water generation efficiency depends on average temperature and relative humidity. When humidity is high, water can be generated and stored for use when humidity is significantly lower.
AWG systems are designed to operate continuously and only require modest periodic maintenance consisting of filter changes and general cleaning.
ATC industrial AWG systems have an option of remote monitoring via internet service that allows for predicting scheduled maintenance and monitoring of key operational parameters of the equipment.
Air filters should be replaced three to four times a year depending on local atmospheric conditions.
Water filters should be replaced two to three times per year depending on the model in service. These cartridges take only minutes to replace using an automated system shutdown feature.
Typically no compressor maintenance is required.
ATC technology will work anywhere with a temperate climate and moderate to high humidity.
Our systems do not need the weather fronts and mountain ranges which usually produce rainfall.
ATC AWG systems collect water from humidity in the atmosphere. This air is chilled to the “dew point” and the moisture is condensed onto stainless steel or specially designed coils, then channeled through advanced filtering chambers to provide a reliable source of clean drinking water. This technology enables significant amounts of water to be extracted from the air and purified efficiently at a relatively low cost per liter.
The water produced by ATC AWG systems is free of impurities, such as air pollution and metal oxide contamination. The advanced filtering process works all day and night, non-stop, maintaining an optimal level of purification.
Water filtered with ATC technology has low TDS (Total Dissolved Solids, which is the amount of all inorganic and organic substances in the water).
All of our systems use electricity as the primary source of energy.
We may develop options for using wind and solar energy in the future.
The residential AD5pro2, for use in the home and office, uses 280 watts of electricity.
The power source for the ADpro1000 is three-phase electrical power; the unit can be easily integrated into the existing electrical utility system, using 15kW of energy.
What models does ATC manufacture? How much pure water can each model produce? What are their potential uses and costs?
ATC produces atmospheric water generators for home and office use, as well as commercial and community use.
The AD5pro2 is for use in homes and offices with 4 to 6 people. It can produce up to 20 liters of pure water per day in a high humidity, high temperature environment, and stores 13 liters. It uses 280 watts of electricity. It uses environmentally friendly refrigerant r134a. It is 380 mm wide x 515 mm deep x 550mm high and weighs only 32 kilograms.
The ADpro1000 is designed for outdoor commercial and community use. It produce up to 1,000 liters of pure water per day depending on temperature and humidity, and uses 15 kW of 3-phase electric system power. Its storage capacity is 600 liters of water. The size of the ADpro1000 is 1,700 mm wide x 1,400 mm deep x 1,940 mm high. One unit weighs 980 kilograms
These atmospheric water generators present a viable solution in water-scarce communities, urban neighbourhoods that lack drinking water, remote or mobile work stations (oil rigs, military bases, ships, etc.), hospitals, resorts, apartment buildings and humanitarian relief stations.
ATC has warranties that provide replacement of defective parts for up to one year (excludes regular maintenance items such as filters).
ATC anticipates very few problems with their units as production models have passed robust testing standards. There can be issues that are related directly to the lack of maintenance, such as dirty intake air filters and water filters that need to be replaced.
The units have safety features that will prevent damage to the units from operating in temperatures above 40 C or in freezing temperatures.
ATC services the home and office units through a distributor network. If service is required, simply contact your distributor for immediate help.
ATC send technicians to all over the world when a distributor need any technical support or to be trained.
Can this AWG be operated with Solar panel? I do want to use this at isolated area where both electricity and water are not served.
Yes, it is.
AWG AD5pro2 consumes very low electricity and can be operated with Solar panel.
However, the solar system is still inefficient in terms of cost. If possible, use electricity from your home or office, and inevitably consider using it only in isolated areas such as uninhabited islands.
