Ozone Revisited: Will New Ozone Technology Revolutionize Oxidation?By: Gary Barnes
Well, probably not, but as I see it the new ozone technology will profoundly affect the way we charge our oxidation media beds. A new ozone generator technology was developed to fit snugly behind the face plate of a specially modified Clack valve. And we have it. It’s call the Master Fusion.
Why ozone? Ozone generators of the past were big, clunky and temperamental. To create quality ozone you had to deploy air dryers and mess with fussy adjustments. If you haven’t noticed, there has been an electronic revolution. The same technology that makes cars and furnaces run at peak efficiency also runs our water softeners, filters and now ozone.
Why ozone? We care about clean air. Traditional AIO (Air Injection Oxidizer) technology uses a modified softener valve to draw in ambient air to recharge a spent filtration media bed. I’ve always been concerned about drawing in “basement air”. AIO’s untreated air mixes with your customer’s water laden with organics. Untreated air combined with organics could potentially be a recipe for bacterial contamination that could foul the bed with slime. (Our AIO systems use KDF cubes to combat slime.)
Enter Ozone! O3 is 1.5 times more powerful than chlorine. The big brother to oxygen, ozone’s 3rd oxygen atom, jumps off to oxidize the heck out of iron, sulfur, and manganese. Ozone sanitizes the media bed and produces no disinfection byproducts. Ozone is a true chemical free solution for iron, sulfur, and manganese removal. Clean air = clean water. Master Fusion, one simple compact design and move into clean technology.
