Welcome To The Age Of Hydro-Optic Disinfection

3 Hydro-Optic Disinfection (HOD) Technology “The Liquid Wave Guide"
Utilizing Fiber Optic Principles “Total Internal Reflection” Simply powerful

4 Atlantium: Who We Are? We are a leading provider of Next Generation
Water Disinfection Solutions We bring a revolutionary disinfection technology Hydro-Optic Disinfection (HOD): Environmentally friendly Simple to use and maintain At a low cost of ownership Really does the job…

5 Company Profile Founded in March 2003
Raised $13M to date from leading investors HQ in Israel – home to renowned innovation in high-tech and water technologies 33 employees and growing Seasoned water sector management Interdisciplinary team of top scientists and engineers Comprehensive Intellectual Property Portfolio Proven the technology in industrial installations Return customers

6 Water Disinfection Technologies Today
Advantages Issues Chlorination Relatively cheap; Widely used and accepted Disinfection by-products; Taste in food; Ineffective against Cryptosporidium & Giardia; Creates issues for downstream processing - membranes Ozonation Effective; Accepted for some industries Disinfection by-products (Bromates); Hard to control with water quality flux; Difficult working environment; Lots of hidden costs Membranes Reliable; Wide acceptance Expensive to buy & operate; Stops microbes only above certain threshold; Sensitive to chlorine; Backwash treatment and biofilms breed hidden costs over time Heat exchange (pasteurization) Extremely high operational cost; Intensive maintenance Conventional UV Environmentally Friendly; Acceptable Microbial Kill 1-3 log range; Deposits & fouling of quartz sleeves; High maintenance; Questionable reliability; Issues with monitoring and control

7 Conventional UV Systems…
Open Channel Reliability: Is it working? Key Issues: Maintenance Monitoring Reactors Immersed lamps Immersed lamps Immersed lamps

8 Introducing the Atlantium R-Series HODTM System– An Out-of-the-Box Design
3. Dual sensor configuration for accurate monitoring 1. UV Light sources OUTSIDE THE WATER completely 2. Air-cooling for light source – not dependant on water flow 4. Central quartz reactor chamber traps light inside flowing water 1 1 4 2 3 3 Cut-away view of the Atlantium R-200. Light beams illustrate the fiber optic Total Internal Reflection principle.

Cross Section and Operation Principles Reflector MPHI* UV Light Source Quartz Tube Air Cooling Air Block WATER AIR AIR Lamp status monitors Quartz Window Water transmission monitor *Medium Pressure High Intensity

11 Computer Simulations Illustrate HOD Maximum Uniform Dose Distribution
CFD Modeling by Atlantium

12 Conventional UV Many lamps, light cannot be uniform
Microbes may escape UV

13 “Low-dose-tracks” ; “Escape routes” ; “Dark spots”
Dark Spots in Conventional UV Reactors Design “Low-dose-tracks” ; “Escape routes” ; “Dark spots”

14 Dark Tracks Overlap the Water High Velocity Areas
Water Speed Between Lamps Low light level AND High velocity Water Low-dose tracks

15 HOD Advantages: No Escape and No Deposits
Lamp outside reactor (air cooled) HOD Reactor Conventional UV Deposits form on the hot quartz protecting sleeve * Reduced reliability * Frequent cleaning/replacement

16 1 MPHI lamp (25cm) outside water
Simplicity in Operation and Maintenance 1 MPHI lamp (25cm) outside water Safe Start/Stop operation Minimal cleaning -No hydraulic obstruction HOD Reactor Conventional UV 18 LP lamps (100cm each); or 6 LPHO lamps (100cm each) All inside water and reactor

17 No Hazardous Mercury In the Water
Conventional UV Risk of Mercury droplets into the water stream

18 Superior Monitoring Ensures Reliability
HOD Reactor Direct measurement of UV source Additional detector for water turbidity Conventional UV Measuring UV light through water (light, sleeve fouling, and water)

22 Applications in Food & Beverage
Benefits Application Overall contamination reduction Reduce/eliminate chlorination for some (Chemicals, Holding tank, Pump, less Active Carbon, less DBPs) Entrance to Plant – “fire wall” 1 Reduce number of cleaning cycles Reduce the risk of bio-fouling potential outbreaks from AC filters Before Activated Carbon Filters 2 Reduce bio-fouling Reduce membrane maintenance Reduce energy costs Increase membrane lifetime Before RO / Membrane 3 Reduce need for chemicals, especially where bromates or water quality may fluctuate Cost reduction with no DBPs Ozonation Replacement (process, rinsers) 4

23 HOD R-Series with Activated Carbon
Conventional use: UV used after AC to control bacterial breakout R-Series reactor used before AC to prevent bacterial growth Activated Carbon UV Frequent CIP and backwash High count cannot be totally Eliminated by UV Activated Carbon

24 Applications in Food & Beverage (in development*)
Benefits Application Significantly reduce costs Reduce maintenance requirements Water Pasteurization 5 Reduce chlorine need Reduce Active Carbon filters sizes Reduce operation and maintenance Storage Tank Disinfection THM Reduction 6 Depend on water chemistry Protect membranes De-chlorination 7 Disinfection, no good solution today Sugar Syrup Water 8 Control Contamination / Legionella Reduce Chemicals Reduce maintenance of towers Comply with requirements / regulations Cooling Systems / Plate & Frames 9 * In various degrees of Research and Development

25 Municipal Benefits Application Reduce Chlorine (DBPs)
Regulations (Cryptosporidium, Giardia) Water security Drinking Water 1 Reduce Chlorine use Get credits Waste Water Re-use / Replenishment / ASR 2 Membrane Protection / Algae Control Desalination 3 Regulation adherence THM reduction 4 Get new regulation credits (4 log for virus) 186 mj/cm Bio-terrorism Virus Reactor 5

26 Membrane Protection from Bio-Film
