Aquafine ozone destruction units add UV energy to ozone, catalyzing the ozone into harmless oxygen.
Ozone can serve as an important component to a comprehensive water purification system – its properties destroy microbiological organisms and degrade many organic contaminants in water. Additionally, residual dissolved ozone ultimately decomposes into oxygen, making it environmentally friendly.
However, residual ozone represents a potential health hazard and it can be damaging to finished goods, as well as to processing and fabrication equipment. Using UV to remove ozone is a good solution as UV does not require additives that may leave behind residuals.
UV light destroys Ozone in water very quickly. The mechanism for removing ozone is dissociation, which occurs when UV energy “breaks” one of the oxygen bonds in an ozone molecule. Aquafine ozone destruction units add UV energy to ozone, catalyzing the ozone into harmless oxygen.
Aquafine ozone destruction units can be guaranteed to completely destroy ozone in the water and help insure the integrity of the process and the product.
