What is ozone?


Ozone is a very active form of oxygen. It is formed when oxygen is exposed to a high-energy field causing some oxygen molecules (O2) to break down to oxygen atoms (O). The oxygen atoms (O) then react with the oxygen molecules (O2) to form ozone (O3). Notice that this is a reversible reaction meaning that ozone can decompose back to oxygen.

 

Is ozone found in nature?

Yes, ozone is formed by lightening. In nature, ozone is produced by the action of lightning on the oxygen found in the air. The formation of ozone leads to the fresh smell that you find outside after a lightning storm. One type of ozone generator, known as the corona discharge type, mimics this natural process in its ozone generating cells.

Yes, ozone is found in the Earth's stratosphere. Also, the ozone layer found in the upper stratosphere protects the earth's surface from harmful UV rays. UV rays cleave oxygen molecules into oxygen atoms which recombine to form ozone. UV rays also excite ozone molecules causing them to breakdown to oxygen to begin the cycle again. In this way, the energy of the UV rays is absorbed by the "ozone layer" protecting the Earth's surface from their harmful effects. UV-type ozone generators mimic this natural process.

 

What can ozone be used for?

The very reactive nature of ozone makes it the ideal oxidant for air and water treatment.

Ozone will:

  • destroy bacteria and viruses
  • precipitate heavy metals (example iron and manganese) allowing them to be filtered
  • eliminate colour from water (for example, like the yellowish colour caused by tannin)
  • remove rotten egg smell from water (caused by hydrogen sulfide)
  • oxidise organic compounds to form compounds that can be easily flocculated and filtered or to form water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2).
  • eliminate bad odours from air

Pure Water
Ozone System
The system is capable of treating very bad waters, and the end result is the cleanest water you could ever hope for. No colour. No smell. It's a very easy system to install and to operate, and it's cheap and safe because it's completely natural!

Acidic Water
Treatments
Our acid treatment systems use calcite as media to raise the pH balance to above 7.0. Works with pH balances as low as 5.0. Calcite is an alkaline mineral, which acts as a sacrificial media to reduce acidicty in water.

Drinking Water
Treatments
We carry a range of drinking water solutions to make your water safe!

Ultraviolet (UV) systems as a total minimal-maintenance system that is installed inline to sterilise water completely. All microorganisms, ie. bacteria, fungi, viruses and algae are destroyed on contact with ultraviolet. Much easier than chlorinating, and without that swimming-pool taste.
