Water Purification Uses and
Water Purification Equipment
Units designed for treating both air and water.
Ozone is commonly being
used In Water For:
Spas, Hot Tubs, pools, Laundry facilities, (including some Hospital & Hotel laundry
facilities), Water Bottling Facilities (most popular brand name bottling companies
already use ozone as it is very effective and leaves no residue.), and Waste-water
treatment plants. There are approx. 350 Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants using
ozone as their primary means of disinfection. Wastewater Treatment is a rapidly
growing sector of the ozone industry
Ozone Water Treatment Technical Reference
"Ozone is frequently used by the drinking water industry for disinfection,
destruction of synthetic organic chemicals, and removal of taste, odor, color, and
dissolved iron and manganese. Ozone treatment can also decrease formation of
trihalomethanes (THM) and other disinfection by-products (DBPs) while improving
flocculation. The use of ozone in recent years has increased in order to meet
the more stringent disinfectant and disinfection by-product (D/DBP) regulations.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), up to 30%
of large surface water utilities will need to incorporate Ozonation in their water
treatment processes in order to comply with the D/DBP rule proposed by the USEPA."
Ozone works 3180+ times quicker and more effectively than chlorine as a germicide.
Ozone is the one of the most powerful oxidants available for commercial air, & water
Information about Proper Ozone Water Treatment and the
While both air & water are effectively treated with ozone, the equipment used is
significantly different for effectiveness.
Units sold on the market designed to treat both air and water with the same unit
ineffective results. While able to effectively treat air, most of these
inexpensive units ($100.00 - 500.00) will not kill the germs in water. If
there is enough ozone being used, yes the germs will be killed, but the residual
ozone emitted at the top of the water is so strong, it will nearly choke anyone in
the room where the water is treated, and nitric acid production will be high - often
discoloring the water yellow, unless a heated desiccant air drier or oxygen feed gas
is used . This is why oxygen,
air driers, and off-gas systems are used for proper water treatment.
Notes on Ozone and Water
The only proper way for disinfecting water effectively involves testing for bacteria
and other microbe content or other contamination. With careful lab analysis, a
chemist / microbiologist will match the types and amounts of microbes and
contamination to the amount of ozone needed to kill each type of contamination to
determine the amount of ozone needed and the time required for the treatment. Any
other procedure to purify drinking water with ozone is not recommended.
Some companies will sell ozone water purification equipment "grossly undersized" or
with inaccurate claims as to the capacity for proper microbial disinfection or
sterilization. Sometimes easy to spot, these low priced ozone units (approx.
$100.00 to $400.00) will not disinfect liquids or may have adverse effects.
Note that a properly built quality ozone system for the average size hot-tub will
usually exceed $1,000.00 if not more than $2,000.00. If a corona discharge ozone
water purification system (the only effective means of sterilizing in large bodies
of water) does not include an air-drier, or is not used with oxygen as the feed gas
instead of ambient air, or the system does not use an off-gas system, the system is
considered improper and is not recommended for drinking water or spa uses.
Using oxygen, or an air-drier will also eliminate
maintenance or keep it to the minimum. Off-gas systems simply remove the
excess unused ozone gas (there will always be excess gas that is not fully mixed
into the water - even if the system is severely undersized) which eliminates gas
over-exposure for occupants and also greatly reduces the oxidizing ozone from the
air around a Hot Tub Spa or Pool.
High-concentration, low-flow corona discharge
systems are often the only answer for treating water because residual ozone must
remain in the water for a period of time. For air and surface sterilization,
UV ozone generators produce more than enough ozone for shock treatment needs for
killing germs and mold, but for many water applications, UV water ozone systems, can
not provide enough ozone concentration to be injected into the water for proper
