Ozone Generators and Circulation Systems
Benefits of Ozone: Reacts with contaminants up to 3,000 times faster than chlorine and can be generated on site. Ozone leaves no taste or odor. Standard contact time for chlorine is 20 minutes – ozone is just 4 minutes. Creates no trihalomethanes (THM’s). Ozone’s only by-product is oxygen.
Disinfection – Bacteria – Ozone kills microorganisms with a process known as “cellular lysis”. Ozone destroys E. Coli faster than chlorine. Legionella pneumophila (the bacteria responsible for Legionnaires disease) is destroyed with relatively low dosages of ozone.
This is one of many reasons ozone has become so popular in the treatment of cooling tower water.
Taste & Odor Control – Ozone is the disinfectant of choice for most water bottling plant operations. Unlike chlorine, ozone leaves no undesirable taste or odor. Ozone oxidizes the organics responsible for 90% of taste and odor related problems. Examples: tannin and color removal.
Algae Control – Ozone effectively kills plankton (algae). Ozonization disrupts the metabolic processes of many types of algae by oxidizing essential organic components. – Examples: ponds and water features.
Oxidation of Organics – Oxidation of inorganics with ozone will not result in the removal of metals, but it does facilitate their precipitation and subsequent removal through filtration. Iron and manganese are easily and readily oxidized into a particulate for filtration downstream. Sulfides are rapidly oxidized to sulfates, thus eliminating the “rotten egg” taste and odor associated with sulfides. Heavy metals such as arsenic, copper, and lead are easily reduced to below detection limits with ozonization followed by filtration. Trace metal removal of cadmium and zinc through oxidation with ozone and subsequent filtration is also effective. Nitrate ion is oxidized very quickly to nitrate as are organic nitrites, nitrites nitrous compounds and hydroxylamines.
