The Ozonia Membrel electrolytic ozone generator is used for Ultra-Pure Water (UPW) disinfection applications in industries where water quality is critical to end product quality. Electrolytic ozone systems are optimized for ultrapure water loops where water is produced, stored and distributed in a closed-loop and used in at multiple points-of-use (POUs) for integration into products.
Ozonia Membrel electrolytic ozone systems have been the market leader for decades in several industries:
- Personal Care Products
Ozone System Design
Most modem pure water networks are constructed as closed loop systems where the water is pumped through one or more circulation loops to different point-of-use (POU) points. Depending on the source water and final application, there are different pieces of equipment (such as filters, reverse osmosis membranes, UV systems, tanks, pumps) installed. The Membrel unit is an essential part of this large-scale fixed installation (LSFI). For all applications, it is best to install the ozone generation system in the loop and return just before it re-enters the storage tank. The by-pass flow for the electrolytic system is tapped off before the loop’s pressure retaining valve and reintroduced on the low pressure side.
Total Organic Carbon (TOC)
One of the important factors to be taken into consideration when calculating the ozone dose is the organic content of the water being disinfected. If the organic content is high, the ozone demand will be correspondingly high and the ozone also will be used to reduce the organic content rather than just destroying microorganisms. During periods when ozone is being used to oxidize both microorganisms and organics, the kill rate will be slow. Once the total organic carbon (TOC) has been reduced to a minimum, the kill rate will increase accordingly.
