Corona Discharge Ozone Generators
Corona Discharge Ozone Generators are among the most efficient and reliable form of ozone generator.
Ozone needs to be generated on site and requires energy to do so, and Corona discharge ozone generators do this more efficiently than other form of ozone generation.
Activated oxygen, ozone or O3, is a naturally occurring substance, it is generated when lightning strikes. It is a practical solution for many industries aiming to reduce the use of hazardous chemicals and exposing staff to chemical fumes.
Research reveals that ozone kills bacteria and viruses far more effectively and cost effective than chlorine and produces no disinfection byproducts (DBP’s).
Ozone is a suseful water quality control agent, moves into water 13 times easier than oxygen, and reverts to oxygen after it reaction. It oxidises solid and dissolved wastes on contact that effect water clarity and colour in RAS, and in sterilisation applications, can kill bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses.
Ozone also assists other filtration to perform better, it helps to microfloculate particles in water so mechanical filters work more effectively. It reduces waste buildup on biological filters and reduces BOD so biofilters work more effectively, and through clarifying and clearing water, UV sterilisers have better penetration through the water column resulting in higher sterilisation rates.
Pure Aquatics represents two manufacturers of ozone generators and equipment, Novozone of New Zealand for applications up to 30gm’s per hour, and Ozone Solutions of the USA for larger outputs requiring more ozone.
