Ozone

Ozone In Water Treatment

As the most powerful oxidant that can be used in water treatment, ozone enables a broad spectrum of possible applications:
Outstanding disinfection action against
Bacteria and viruses
Fungi and parasites

Oxidation of undesirable inorganic substances in the water
Iron and manganese
Arsen
Nitrite and sulfide

Oxidation of undesirable organic substances in the water
Strong-smelling and strong-tasting compounds
Humic substances and other compounds which affect the colour of the water
Cyclic hydrocarbons
Trihalomethanes, chloramines and other chlorine compounds

Microflocculating action
After oxidation with ozone, substances and colloids dissolved in the water become insoluble and can be filtered.

Significantly less environmentally-harmful by-products occur in the production and use of ozone, than with other comparable oxidants and disinfectants. As a highly reactive gas, ozone is produced on site, and introduced to the water directly, without interim storage. Because of its high reactivity, ozone decom-poses into oxygen again in the water, with a half-life of several minutes. All components of an ozone handling system must be perfectly matched with each other and with the planned application, to achieve an optimal relationship between ozone production and effect.For every new project, our engineers can draw on the experience that we have continually accumulated since 1971, in the following applications:

Drinking water supply
Oxidation of iron, manganese or arsenic
Improvement in appearance and taste
Disinfection

Food and beverage industry
Disinfection of mineral water
Disinfection at the rinser in the beverage industry
Disinfection of production water

Swimming pools
Reduction of chloramines and trihalomethanes, so avoiding typical swimming pool smell
Crystal-clear water thanks to microflocculating action
Reliable microbiological barriers in therapy pools
Reduction of investment and operating costs through the possibility of reducing the circulating power and throttling the fresh water inlet

Industry
Cooling water treatment
Combating legionella in cooling water circuits
Disinfection of process water
Removal of odorous substances in air scrubbers
