1 WHAT IS SILVER BULLET PRIORITIES HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS BACTERIA REDUCTION DESCALING RESULTS CORROSION CONTROL OVERVIEW CASE STUDIES SILVER BULLET SUMMARY

2 WHAT IS SILVER BULLET WHAT IT DOES Silver Bullet Water Treatment is a unique, proprietary electro-chemical water treatment system that disinfects, de-alkalizes and conditions water to virtually eliminate microorganisms and scale formation. The system WHAT IT MEANS while saving money. BEFORE AFTER DO MORE LESS: EACH OF THE SYSTEM ABOVE SUPPORT A 1500 TON COOLING DO MORE WITH LESS: SYSTEM. THE DIFFERENCE: THE SILVER BULLET SYSTEM PICTURED ON THE RIGHT IS LOW MAINTENANCE, CLEAN, AND REQUIRES NO ADDITIONAL CHEMICALS. Saves Money $ off Eliminates the need for additional, expensive harmful chemicals Creates A Clean System Reduces/Eliminates hard water scaling that can damage cooling towers Reduces Maintenance Reduces frequent, time-consuming maintenance Reduces long term wear, tear and maintenance Implements With Ease 4 Simple installation that takes less than a day Compact, modular equipment system with a small footprint or electrical systems Starts to work immediately for a facility of any size 1

3 PRIORITIES microbiological growth, calcium scale and corrosion dispose of hazardous chemicals. In most operating conditions, the Silver Bullet system naturally increases the cycles Water Treatment Company or one of its authorized dealers. BIOCIDE A WORD FROM A CUSTOMER phenomenal. SCALE CONTROL of concentration, which saves water. CORROSION CONTROL Increasing calcium and other minerals in water through increased cycles makes water less corrosive to system less than that on copper. Based on corrosion coupon analysis reports from numerous installations, Silver Bullet has 2

4 HOW IT WORKS THE CHEMISTRY calcium ions and hold calcium in solution. This attraction also attracts calcium in the form of existing scale. In this reaction, the scale that has formed on the tower either chips off or is dissolved in the water. THE RESULTS and less reactive with the many different materials of which towers and pipes are made. Since the water is less reactive, less corrosion occurs in the system. lower than the cycles of calcium, proving descaling. Water reports When using the Silver Bullet system, water can generally hold more minerals in solution than it could with traditional chemical water savings. 3

6 DESCALING RESULTS in the Silver Bullet process attacks scale on the metal walls of cooling systems, chipping away and dissolving it into the water. Because the oxygen molecules are negatively charged, they work much like a magnet and hold the calcium in GRAPH 1 GRAPH 2 5

7 CORROSION Increasing calcium and other minerals in water through increased cycles makes water less corrosive to system less than that on copper. Based on corrosion coupon analysis reports from numerous installations, Silver Bullet has third-party water treatment companies to ensure validity of test results.

The hydrogen peroxide attacks scale on the inside walls of cooling systems, chipping away, dissolving it. CORROSION CORROSION CONTROL: Increasing calcium and other minerals in water through increased cycles makes water less corrosive to system piping. The Evolution of Silver Bullet 2005 Bullet technology for national hospital 2009 commercial install Silver Bullet goes international

9 CASE STUDIES NORAD, Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado LOCATION: NORAD, (USAF) Cheyenne Mountain AFS INSTALLATION DATE: BENEFITS: Eliminated the use of traditional chemicals in increased cost over a traditional chemical system. HISTORY: There are nine individual towers located in the secured mountain, each with a separate chemical feed monitor hazardous liquid chemical drums. The time required to test and service these nine individual water systems put a strain on manpower and posed a serious security concern. nightmare. IMPROVEMENTS: Silver Bullet consolidated the monitoring to three monitoring stations, eliminated eighteen completely eliminated scaling. Silver Bullet also provided a data acquisition controller for all systems and increased cycles of concentration, thus saving water. Since installation, they have had no maintenance issues. Sky Ridge Medical Center Lone Tree, Colorado LOCATION: Sky Ridge Medical Center, Lone Tree INSTALLATION DATE: BENEFITS: additional cost over a traditional chemical system. HISTORY: chemical treatment program. Because of political and social pressure, the hospital to examine potential water savings and IMPROVEMENTS: program without the necessity to handle and use toxic chemicals. Since the installation, they have had no maintenance issues. 8

10 SILVER BULLET SUMMARY WHAT IT DOES The Silver Bullet system meets or exceeds the three goals of a cooling tower water treatment program without the use of Reduces rates of corrosion HOW IT WORKS The Silver Bullet system uses ultraviolet light and additional elements to create a gas which is added to the water to form proprietary process allows minerals to stay dissolved, prevents scale and removes existing scale, and reduces corrosion.
