Ozone has been used in water treatment for a long time to get rid of contaminants and to reduce micro-pollutants in drinking water and for treating industrial wastewater with a high chemical oxygen demand (COD) as found in the textile, pharmaceutical and specialty chemicals industries.
Recently, more and more countries have been introducing regulations for the residual micro-pollutants in treated wastewater after conventional municipal biological treatment. Various advanced oxygenation process treatment trains have been tested for this purpose, and ozone has been proven to be very effective in dealing with these compounds.
In the corona-discharge production process, ozone is created by an electrical discharge to ambient air or oxygen. When using highly concentrated or pure oxygen instead of ambient air for the production of ozone, the following advantages arise
- Higher ozone production
- Smaller footprint
- No pre-treatment of the feed gas is required
Recover up to 60% of oxygen in ozone production with our OZORA® oxygen recovery system
During the ozone generation process, only a small part of the oxygen is converted to ozone. The remaining unconverted oxygen is ultimately vented. With OZORA®, you can recycle and reuse unconverted oxygen before it escapes. OZORA® takes the oxygen/ozone mix from the ozone generator and separates the oxygen from the ozone. The oxygen is fed back into the generator while the ozone is mixed with dry air and then exits the production process to its end purpose.
Our patented solution reduces oxygen consumption by up to 60%. It therefore considerably reduces your operating costs and brings your ozone production to new efficiency levels.
