Ozone is the most powerful commercial oxidant in the world. It has been used primarily as a disinfectant for drinking water since the early 1900s. It is also useful for waste water disinfection and malodorous off-gases from waste water treatment plants because OZONE must be generated on site for immediate use. This is best done through a ozone generator.
The advantage of Ozonators for commercially treating waste water is that it destroys bacteria, inhibits algae growth and reduces scaling in problematic areas. It has a faster reaction rate than chemicals and only oxidation not chlorination takes place. Ozonators provide rapid and efficient oxidation of many industrial contaminants.
It is very effective for oxidizing iron and manganese, removing phenols, organic waste constituents and heavy metal contaminants. An additional advantage is that water treated with OZONE does not contain any chlorinated compounds that require further treatment prior to disposal.
