Ozone water treatment solutions – ozone generators and ozonators from Pure Aqua

Pure Aqua, Inc. designs and assemble complete ozone generators and ozone water treatment systems for commercial, residential and industrial water treatment purposes. Applications range from treating swimming pool water to food processing water and bottling applications.

Ozonation

Ozone is a strong oxidizer and can be particularly effective for water and waste water treatment with less than 1% organic content. It is sometimes used as a pretreatment method, or to disinfect wastewater after biological treatment. It oxidizes a wide range of organics, can destroy cyanide wastes and phenolic compounds, and is faster acting than alkaline chlorination. And, unlike chlorine, ozone doesn’t generate toxic ions in the oxidation process.

Ozone is the triatomic form of oxygen formed naturally during lightning strikes and anytime an electric arc is formed. It is a very unstable compound and must be produced at the same time it is needed, usually by ultraviolet excitation and corona discharge. It isn’t effective in treating slurries, sludges, solids, organic solvents, or tars.

Before use, consider the possibility that ozone will oxidize other stream components that didn’t need treatment. Excess ozone, (that is, ozone not consumed in the reaction) must be catalytically decomposed since release isn’t permitted

Ozone Water Treatment Systems

Ozonation has recently gained popularity as a treatment alternative in the United States after regulatory agencies placed restrictions on the disinfection by-products, especially levels of tri-halomethane (THM).

Ozonation is an established and proven disinfection alternative as well as a peroxidant for the control of THM precursors. It also has the benefits of:

  • Oxidation and volatilization of organics
  • Control of algae and associated compounds
  • Destabilization (microflocculation) of certain types of turbidity
  • Removal of color-causing compounds
  • Oxidation of iron and manganese
  • Very short disinfection times
  • Partial oxidation of organics for subsequent removal by microorganisms.

Ozone Generator Selection

Ozone is generated by passing a high voltage alternating current (6-20 kV) across a dielectric discharge gap through which oxygen gas is injected. Setting aside the sales pitches from manufacturers, most practical generators are either low (50-60 Hz) or medium (200-1000 Hz) frequency. Medium frequency generators are generally considered better performers. It is often helpful to contact Pure Aqua in similar applications to finalize the selection of an ozone generator.

Water Softeners and Water Softener Systems

Water Softeners

A water softener system is a unit that is used to soften water, by removing the minerals that cause the water to be hard.

Water softening is an important process, because the hardness of water in different applications is reduced during this process.
When water is hard, it can clog pipes, damage boilers, heat exchangers, and many other devices. Water softening can prevent these negative effects.
Hard water causes a higher risk of lime scale deposits in industrial, commercial and household water systems. Due to this lime scale build-up, pipes are blocked and the efficiency of hot boilers and tanks is reduced. This increases the cost of domestic water heating by about fifteen to twenty percent.
Another negative effect of lime scale is that it has damaging effects on household machinery, such as laundry machines.
Water softening using Pure Aqua water softener system expands the life span of each household machine, such as laundry machines, and the life span of pipelines. It also contributes to the improved working, and longer lifespan of solar heating systems, air conditioning units and many other water-based applications.

What do water softeners do?

Industrial water softeners are specific ion exchangers that are designed to remove ions, which are positively charged.
Softeners mainly remove calcium (Ca2+) and magnesium (Mg2+) ions. Calcium and magnesium are often referred to as ‘hardness minerals’.
Softeners are sometimes even applied to remove iron. The softening devices are able to remove up to five milligrams per liter (5 mg/L) of dissolved iron.
Softeners can operate automatic, semi-automatic, or manual. Each type is rated on the amount of hardness it can remove before regeneration is necessary.

Commercial water softeners collect hardness minerals within its conditioning tank and from time to time flushes them away to drain.
Ion exchangers are often used for water softening. When an ion exchanger is applied for water softening, it will replace the calcium and magnesium ions in the water with other ions, for instance sodium or potassium. The exchanger ions are added to the ion exchanger reservoir as sodium and potassium salts (NaCl and KCl).

How long does a water softener last?

A good water softener system will last many years. Water softeners that were supplied in the 1980’s may still work, and many need little maintenance, besides filling them with salt occasionally.

Softening salts

For water softening, three types of salt are generally sold:
– Rock salt
– Solar salt
– Evaporated salt

How often should one add salt to a softener?

Salt is usually added to the reservoir during regeneration of the softener. The more often a softener is regenerated, the more often salt needs to be added.

Usually water softeners are checked twice a month. To guarantee a satisfactory production of soft water, the salt level should be kept at least half-full at all times.

With expertise of Pure Aqua’s water softener systems you will receive economical solution that creates value for you while reducing your costs. to know about Reverse Osmosis Systems and also read more about Water Purification Systems
