Other Applications

Ozone is an extraordinary natural oxidizing agent which has the following characteristics and advantages:
  • Ozone is a very powerful oxidizer (second only to fluorine).
  • Ozone is a stand-alone organic sanitizer which simplifies sanitation and kills a broad spectrum of microbes (Organisms Killed by Ozone) 10 to 5000 times faster than halogenated chemicals.
  • Ozone oxidizes organic and inorganic impurities.
  • Ozone’s powerful oxidation potential allows it to be effective in the reduction or elimination of taste, odor and color (air and water).
  • Ozone reactions (unlike halogen chemicals) do not produce toxic halogenated byproducts such as trihalomethanes (THM’s) and ozone rapidly decomposes to oxygen leaving nothing behind.
  • Ozone can be utilized in both an aqueous and gaseous form.
  • Ozone, when used with proper protocols (SOP’s) and employee training, is one of the most cost effective, safest and environmentally friendly oxidizers and sanitizers available.
  • Ozone is a cold sanitizer which saves energy and minimizes equipment maintenance costs and cool down cycles common with hot water and steam.
  • Ozone has been approved by the FDA for food processing and by the USDA as an organic.
  • Ozone is pH neutral, (does not change the acid/alkaline balance).
  • Ozone systems can be highly automated and are very reliable.

These characteristics and advantages make ozone effective in a wide variety of applications including but not limited to the following.

  • Agriculture (Pesticide, Disinfectant)
  • Fish Hatcheries/Aquaculture (Disinfectant)
  • Paper & Pulp (Bleaching, Disinfection, Odor Control)
  • Beverage Industry / Bottled Water (Bottle, Can and Equipment Sterilization)
  • Clean-in-Place (CIP) Systems (Sterilization)
  • Commercial Car Wash Operations (Water & Wastewater, Chemical Reduction)
  • Containers/Food Storage Tank Wash Down (Sterilization)
  • Cooling Towers (Bio-Fouling Control/Chemical Replacement)
  • Corks and Capsules (Sanitation, Mold Control, Taste and Odor Control)
  • Dairies (Sanitation and Disinfection)
  • Electronics (Ultra-pure Process Water)
  • Fruit/Vegetable Processing (Disinfection, Product Extension)
  • Groundwater Reclamation (Organic and Inorganic Oxidation/Reduction)
  • Hydroponics (Water Treatment, Disinfection)
  • Laundry and Dish Washing (Low Temperature Sanitation, Chemical Replacement)
  • Industrial Applications (Halogenated Chemical Replacement, Process Gas, Process Water and Wastewater Treatment)
  • Meat and Poultry Processing (Sanitation, Disinfection, Product Storage)
  • Medical(Equipment Sterilization)
  • Mold Control
  • Odor Control (Oxidation – Water and Air)
  • Ozonated Ice (Disinfection, Sanitation, Extending Product Storage Life)
  • Pools & Spas (Non-Chemical Disinfection)
  • Soil Remediation (Chemical Oxidation, Sterilization, Sanitation)
  • Water Well Reclamation (Oxidation)
  • Water and Wastewater Treatment (Organic and Inorganic Oxidation, Metals Reduction, Disinfection, COD/BOD Reduction, Turbidity Control, Water Reuse Applications)
  • Zoos and Public Aquariums (Disinfection, Sanitation)
  • Much more…
