Ozone & Air Purifiers

OzoneOzone is a gas composed of three atoms of oxygen and present naturally in the upper layer of atmosphere in abundance and it has got the capacity to absorb the harmful ultra-violet rays present in the light spectrum from the sun. Ozone has been used in human medicine since long back to kill fungi, bacteria, and to inactivate viruses.

Ozone, the tri-atomic state of di-oxygen, symbol O3, has had a history in medical and dental usage. In 1785 Van Marum noticed that air near his electrostatic machine acquired a characteristic odor when electric sparks were passed. 1801, Cruickshank observed the same odor at the anode during electrolysis water. Finally, in 1840, Shonbein named the substance which gave off this odor, ozone, from the greek word "ozein"- smell.

Ozone has several advantages over its chemical alternatives:  

  • Ozone is easy to make
  • It can be produced on-demand
  • Ozone is cost effective
  • It decomposes rapidly leaving no trace
  • Does not produce toxic by-products
  • Works quickly and is effective

Typical Ozone Applications  

  • Air Pollution Control
  • Aquaculture / Fish Farms
  • Bleaching
  • Bottled Water / Beverage Industry
  • Cleaning Industry
  • COD/BOD Reduction
  • Cold Storage Facilities
  • Commercial Car Wash Operations
  • Containers and Food Storage Tank Wash Down
  • Cooling Tower Treatment
  • Cyanide Destruction
  • Disinfecting
  • Drinking Water
  • Dye Removal
  • Food Processing
  • Heavy Metals Reduction
  • Landscape Architecture
  • Laundry Water - Commercial
  • Medical Applications
  • Micro Flocculation of Suspended Solids
  • Odor Removal, Control and Elimination
  • Organic Oxidation
  • Pesticide Removal
  • Pharmaceutical Industry
  • Sterilization and Disinfection
  • Swimming Pools and Spas
  • Textile Processes
  • Turbidity
  • Ultra-pure / D.I. Water
  • Waste water Treatment
  • Water Reuse Applications
  • Zoos and Public Aquariums

Ozone effectively destroys bacteria and inactivates viruses more rapidly than any other known disinfectant or chemicals. Ozone oxidizes heavy metals. Iron and manganese can be reduced to very low and safe levels through ozone oxidation

When used properly ozone does not lead to the formation of Trihalomethane's (THM's) like chlorine does. Ozone can treat toxic chemicals including:  

  • Hydrogen Cyanide
  • Acetic Acid
  • Propane
  • Formaldehyde
  • Liquefied Petroleum Gas
  • Butoxythanol
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • Methyl-Ethyl Ketone
  • Benzene
  • n-Butyl Phthalate Camphor
  • Para-Phenylenediamone
  • Styrene
  • Xylene
  • Acetone
  • etyl Alcohol
  • Glycerol
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Benzyl Alcohol
  • n-Butyl Acetate
  • Mythelacrylic Acid
  • Triccresyl Phosphate
  • Toluene
  • Mineral Spirits
  • Ammonia
  • Ammonium Persulfate
  • Non-Ionic Detergents
