Arris in collaboration with VEK Environmental are importing Primozone Ozone Generating technology into Australia. Ozone is an excellent water treatment technique as it has multiple benefits; such as disinfection, BOD & COD reduction, flocculation of organic matter, odour & colour removal, and increases in dissolved oxygen concentrations. Primozone Technology is energy efficient, has low operational costs, in-built redundancy and produces the highest ozone concentration available.
Primozone technology has been installed world-wide in a wide variety of water treatment applications; such as potable & wastewater treatment, aquaculture, cooling towers, mining & gas, and agriculture.
We have been partnering the Primozone Ozone Generators with AirSep Corporation’s oxygen concentration technology. AirSep’s use of pressure swing adsorption (PSA) air separation technology enables a limitless base from the natural atmosphere from which to meet on-site oxygen production & concentration capabilities.
The combination of Primozone and AirSep technologies allows our installations to efficiently and cost effectively produce ozone from the atmosphere. Producing the ozone in-situ from atmospheric oxygen results in lower operational costs as less chemicals need to be bought, transported and handled at the site.
Arris have installed Primozone Units at the STP on the Woodfordia site and the WestSide WTP. The Woodfordia STP uses ozone for disinfection, flocculation of organic matter, odour & colour removal, and to reduce the BOD & COD of the wastewater. The Woodfordia STP is a batching treatment process that has to handle highly variable flows and requires chemical oxidation processes to meet the treated water quality requirements. Disinfection with ozone is particularly efficient as it is effective against bacteria, viruses, protozoa, helminths and algae. The WestSide WTP treats the water from the coal seam gas industry and the ozone is used to remove metals such as iron from the water and to prevent algal growth. The ozone at this site is also effective at breaking down long-chain hydrocarbons.
Arris have incorporated Primozone ozone units into the water treatment chains at the 12 Apostles Hot Springs & Resort. The potable water treatment chain will incorporate ozone into the treatment chain for disinfection and to oxidise metals out of the aquifer source water. The sewage treatment plant will use ozone for disinfection, odour & colour removal, and to reduce the BOD & COD of the wastewater. The backwash water from the Hot Springs & Spa will be ozonated to provide disinfection. Ozone is an excellent water treatment technology for an eco-development as it is a natural gas that breaks down into oxygen in a very short period of time. As part of the approval process it was very helpful incorporating ozone into the engineered water cycle due to its effectiveness and its multiple treatment benefits. Construction at this site begins in 2019.
