The application of ozone

Jul 31, 2019

Ozone is one of the most effective methods of disinfection/oxidation that exists. It is indicated for the treatment of water, air and industrial products.

 

One of the main differences from other methods is full respect for the environment when using it. Contaminants, odours, colours and microorganisms are directly destroyed by ozone without damaging the treated products and without leaving residues.

 

In certain cases, to ensure a high quality of the water used, methods of physical treatment like flocculation, filtration and others, are not sufficient to achieve the required effects. Ozone action is much more ecological and safe compared to the alternative treatments with oxidizing agents as chlorine.

 

The generation of the ozone process is simple. Ozone is obtained with special production from gas containing oxygen, which applies an electric discharge, thus generating a stream of high tension between the two electrodes. These electrodes are separated by a dielectric and two spaces for discharge where the gas flow passes. A part of the molecule of oxygen from the gas used dissociates in the electric field and are associated with oxygen molecules released, forming ozone molecules.
