Increasing pressure to reduce the amount of chemicals used in the farming of our food has led the agricultural industry to seek alternatives to pesticides. Ozone has been proven to be an effective agent and leaves no harmful residue on the produce.
- Cooling Towers
- Drinking Water
- Pools & Spas
- Soil Remediation
Cooling towers treated with ozone offer better heat transfer efficiencies, lower blowdown volumes and decreased chemical usage.
The use of Ozone cooling towers is not only good for the environment but also good for the bottom line.
Photoresist removal and silicon wafer production are just a couple of applications of ozone in the electronics industry.
Food disinfection is a major concern for the food industry & its consumers. Ozone has a powerful disinfection capability and this has made it very useful in many areas of food processing and packaging.
Treating the water used in hydroponics with ozone eliminates hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and pathogens resulting in higher crop yields.
The benefits of ozone in commercial laundries are almost too good to be true. Ozone can greatly reduce the amount of hot water used, reduce chemical usage and recycle wash water for reuse. Moreover, linen life is extended when compared to chlorine washing representing huge savings for hotels and hospitals.
Fish hatcheries and fish farms play an ever increasing role in supplying the world's demand for fish. Ozone Aquaculture is becoming the main disinfectant for incoming water for fish & shrimp hatcheries as well as recycling water for RAS farming. Ozone Aquaculture is now a mature technology specially when combined with UV to control residual O3 in the water if required or totally convert O3 to Oxygen. In addition to Ozone Aquaculture’s excellent disinfection capabilities, it also creates highly dissolved O2 in water which is beneficial to the marine life.
Ozone is a stronger oxidant than all other commonly used disinfectants including chlorine, hypochlorous acid, and hydrogen peroxide. It leaves behind no harmful residue since unreacted ozone decomposes to oxygen.
Ozone disinfection for bottling & beverage industry
Ozone is used in the bottled beverage industry to treat the water used to make the beverages, to sterilize bottles and to disinfect the bottling and filling equipment. In the wine industry, ozone is used to clean the barrels used to age the wine.
Ozone is ideal for drinking water treatment both for its ability to kill bacteria and viruses such as E.coli, cryptosporidium and rotavirus but also because it can precipitate heavy metals such as iron and manganese.
Ozone offers a chemical-free way of treating pools and spas. Bathers will benefit from clear, chemical-free, odourless water. Unlike chlorine, ozone will not bleach hair, damage bathing suits, dry skin, irritate eyes nor irritate the respiratory system.
Soil contaminated with hydrocarbons can be reclaimed on site with the use of ozone. Worthless land can become valuable real estate by using a special ozone ground injection technique.
The careless dumping of wastewater into the environment is taking a toll on our planet. More and more governments are putting in place and enforcing stringent environmental regulations to curb this practice. Ozomax AOP technologies offers not only a means of meeting discharge regulations, but it allows process water to be recycled back to the process often with useful chemicals - converting an expense into a savings!
