Aquazone Ozone Water treatment systems provide a Solution where there is no Municipal treated supply of water to provide safe drinking, bathing or irrigation water.
Ozone treatment is efficient and effective in achieving pollution removal, allowing people more flexibility to use water that exists where they are, or where they want to be.
Ground water, streams, lakes, rivers and oceans, even underground are subject to a wide range of human caused assaults.
Ozone can be used as a disinfectant, decolorizer, deodorizer, detoxifier, precipitant, coagulant and for removing tastes. Consequently, the use of ozone can be used to address any of these problems, and particularly when there is suspicion of waterborne pathogens.
Ozone coagulates and precipitates many substances by itself, and is also a reasonably effective flocculant. Because of this, it can reduce other chemical loading in treatment facilities.
Ozone production on site, via normal corona discharge, eliminates the problems of transporting, storing and handling of hazardous and dangerous materials such as chlorine.
For efficiency, ozone is outstanding, as it is the most powerful and effective broad spectrum microbiological control or disinfecting agent available. As an example, for the inactivation of Giardia cysts the C t (concentration & time) is about 100 times greater for free chlorine than for ozone. With viruses the contact time is about six times greater for chlorine than for ozone. For Cryptosporidia, ozone is the recommended disinfectant.
Consequently, with ozone, there is less need to add high concentrations of a long lived poison to the water you will soon be drinking. When ozone is utilized, the chlorine need is greatly reduced, as it is then needed only as a way to provide a residual in the distribution system. This minimizes the potential for producing carcinogenic THMs and helps protect your health.
Ozone is of particular value in water treatment systems because of it’s ability to disinfect without adding other chemicals which may later need to be removed. As with other treatment methods, the oxidized by-products of ozonation may need to be removed by filtration or settling to provide acceptably clean clear water.
Water, being the universal solvent that it is, seldom remains pure water (H2O). Even the double distilled water used in laboratories contains dissolved traces of other substances. Ozone will decompose in “pure” water by itself (slower than in air), as well as reacting with almost anything dissolved or carried in the water.
