Why use ozone generation for disinfection?

Ozone is one of the strongest oxidant agents on the market – 50% stronger than chlorine  – making it one of the most powerful oxidants available in today’s municipal, industrial and commercial markets.

Substance Oxidation Potential (IV)
Molecular Oxygen atom (O) 2.42
Ozone molecule (O3) 2.07
Hydrogen peroxide (H202) 1.78
Chlorine (Cl) 1.36
Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) 1.27
Oxygen molecule (O2) 1.23

Environmentally friendly technology

Ozone decays into harmless oxygen and is an environmentally friendly technology that does not create any chlorinated disinfection byproducts. Due to ozone’s oxidation power, it has many advantages for water treatment systems, including:

  • Color, taste and odor removal
  • Enhanced flocculation
  • Oxidation - Organics, Fe & Mn
  • Disinfection without by-products formation
  • Improved filtration efficiency
  • Cryptosporidium, giardia & virus inactivation

How is ozone produced?

Ozone is produced when oxygen molecules (O2) are split into atomic oxygen (O) then recombined into ozone. (O3). In most commercial applications, ozone is produced when a gas containing oxygen is passed through an electrical field separated by two electrodes. When oxygen molecules in the gas interact with the electrical field, they split and recombine forming ozone. This process is the Corona Discharge ozone generation method.

The ozonia* membrel system uses the electrolytic process to produce ozone from water, making it the most effective method for ozone production in ultrapure water applications.
