Ozone Treatment Technology
Ozone is used in water treatment due to its disinfection and oxidisation properties. Ozone is a short-lived triatomic (O3) form of oxygen created by electrically charging oxygen molecules. It can be formed naturally in the environment or artificially using ozone generators. Ozone is a very effective disinfectant because it kills bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi, & algae. The oxidisation potential of ozone removes metals such as iron, manganese & sulphur, and decreases colours and odours in water. Ozone decreases the biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD) in water through oxidising organic matter. Ozonation of water also causes a micro-flocculation effect increasing the effectiveness of filtration and coagulation processes. Ozone is short-lived and breaks down to atmospheric oxygen. Ozone is used in potable, wastewater, and industrial water applications.
Our clients have purchased ozone units for:
Our clients have been from a wide range of sectors, including;
Ozone was first used in a municipal drinking water facility in 1906, in Nice, France. It has continued to be used and new technological advances have transformed ozone water treatment into an increasingly common best practice solution.
The technologies we supply produce ozone on-site by using an ozone generator. No oxygen or other chemicals need to be brought to site. We use Mazzei venturi injectors to mix ozone gas. Mazzei injectors provide a very energy efficient mixing method which produces a microbubble of ozone with a high surface area.
Typically, we supply ClearWater Tech units for smaller installations and Primozone for large volume applications. We can design, supply, install, operate and maintain these systems. We have trained staff who travel Australia-wide. Please contact us with your ozone enquires so we can assist you further.
