Ozone is an unstable, colorless gas, a powerful oxidizer and a potent germicide. It has a much higher disinfection potential than other disinfectants such as chlorine.

Ozone consists of three parts of oxygen. Once ozone is generated, it takes a short time for it to break apart and return to its natural form of oxygen. As this phenomenon occurs, the free atom of oxygen will seek out any foreign particles in the water and be attracted to them. This action creates an environment where bacteria or organic matter virtually disintegrate when they come in contact with this free oxygen molecule. This in turn protects water from waterborne, bacterial contamination.

Ozone is used in the bottled water industry because it controls the growth of bacteria in water. It is desirable because it can do this without leaving a residual taste, such as you would find with chlorine.

The variables determining the effectiveness of ozone in killing bacteria are contact time and residual ozone concentration achieved in the product water. This ozone concentration residual is first dependent on how much ozone is injected into the product water and then the amount of ozone demand in the water

The lower the total dissolved solids level, the higher the solubility of the ozone. In other words, one would tend to use lower ozone levels with steam distilled water versus other types of waters such as reverse osmosis or spring water.

Now--- Let us help you focus your Ozone System needs... from this...

to this!

Ozone is an integral and necessary component in a wide variety of beverage processing operations---including bottled water systems, water stores, container sanitization, medical, institutional as well as manufacturing processes.

The ozone module shown at right is typical of the type we integrate into a medium-sized water store or small bottling plant where a wide variety of other system components require interfacing and interconnection. A compact and highly integrated ozone system as shown above comes as a turnkey package designed for bottling rates up to 60 gallons per minute.

Air-cooled, patented "Cold Spark" corona discharge ozone generators are used on all systems. This technology allows the production of high concentrations of ozone with little heat generated, thus eliminating the need for water cooling of the ozone generation tubes.

Ozone is injected through a high efficiency mazzei(venturi) injector, thus eliminating the need for extremely expensive, high energy usage, water cooled corona discharge ozone generators.

This and other features provides a system that is reliable, costeffective and easy to operate and maintain, providing precisely controlled ozone residuals in the water product of 0.1 to 0.4 mg/liter.

HOW IT OPERATES

This commercial/light industrial system illustrated above is a complete, turnkey, frame-mounted package. The system is designed to pump water from an external storage tank(s), through the Mazzei Injector(venturi) which injects ozone into the passing water flow.

This injection process is enhanced by the uniqueness of the Mazzei Injector. It creates "micro-bubbles" of ozone which provide an exceptionally large surface area in which ozone may transfer effectively into the water in the Contact Tank(see next paragraph). The Mazzei Injector utilizes differential pressure between the inputand output to create a vacuum inside the Injector body. This vacuum pulls the ozone gas into the body of the Injector through a 360 degree area around the water stream.

The ozonated water then enters the Stainless-Steel Contact Tank where it remains for 3-4 minutes "contact time" for effective mixing and transfer of ozone to the water prior to entering the bottled water filler or water store dispensing system. This contact time allows the ozone residual to attain the 0.1-0.4 mg/l level required for most bottled water plants.

When water is not required at the (bottling) filler or (water store)dispenser stations, a pressure relief valve opens, transferring the ozonated water back to the storage tank(s) thus maintaining the tanks and connecting lines in a sanitary condition.

All components of this integrated system are mounted on a powdercoated steel frame and are pre-plumbed, pre-wired and tested prior to shipping. Compete installation, operation and service manuals are included with each system.

On site installation of this system is also available. Worldwide references are available to qualified inquiries.

Ozone For Rural/Residential/"Small System" Use

It is not uncommon in many rural areas to experience extremely bad water conditions comprised of sulfur, bad taste, black scale, staining caused by iron and other minerals as well as slime and growth in toilet bowl and tank, embarrassing odor, color, Algae and organics.

Small community water systems("small systems") may also suffer from these types of contaminants.

Ozone has proven effective in dealing with all of these types of contaminants. Integration of small to medium sized ozone systems into residential, farm, ranch and dairy operations is now commonplace, immensely improving water quality for both consumption and other uses in these environments.

Most rural, residential water systems already possess the majority of components needed to integrate and quickly and economically realize the benefits of ozonation. A simplified diagram of such a system is shown below.

For applications where an existing, above-ground water storage system is already in place, the ozone system can be as simple as the compact ozone generator shown at the left.

Where the only existing component is a well and well-head pump, a complete, skid-mounted well-water ozone treatment system is available. This system is a turnkey package designed for effective treatment of problem water containing Iron, Manganese, Hydrogen Sulfide and Bacteria. The system is pre-plumbed and pre-wired for ease of installation and service. The pump, ozone generator and accessory filters plug directly in the main electrical control panel. Simply plug the main control panel into an electrical wall outlet and the system is ready for operation. Standard system capacities range from 10-20 GPM.
