are some basic secrets to successful water ozonation. These
regardless of the water you are ozonating,
or your final goals. You might want to make highly ozonated medical
grade ‘ozonated water’, you might be designing a
water purification plant for bottled water, or you might be considering
ozonating water for city or municipal drinking water.
These secrets apply regardless of your water ozonating goals:
More ozone will transfer to the water if the bubbles are small
instead of large.
Ozonation of water is more successful if the water temperature
More ozone will be transferred to the water the better the bubbles
of ozone and water are mixed together.
The longer the bubbles are in contact with the water, the more
effective the ozonation process will be.
If you start with a higher quality water, the ozone will be more
effective and the ozonation processing time can be reduced.
Rather than just taking raw water from a well or a river and
ozonating it, certain compounds in the water should be removed
from the water first. For example, soil, silt, and particles
should be removed first and can easily be removed with simple
filters. Another consideration is chlorine. If there is already
chlorine in the water, the chlorine will interact with the
ozone and destroy much of the ozone. Iron should also be removed
from the water first, as it too will consume the ozone but
also, iron oxide (which is toxic) will be formed in the water.
Therefore, the higher the quality of water you start with,
the higher the levels of ozone you will be able to store in
the water and the shorter the time required to do so.
If you keep these secrets in mind when designing your water
ozonation process you will be successful.
