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.
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.
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.
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
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.

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

For Rural/Residential/"Small System" Use
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.
community water systems("small systems") may also suffer from
these types of contaminants.
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.
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.
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.
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.
