Proper Use of Ozone Disinfection / Sanitization in High Purity and Ultra-Pure Water Treatment

Posted by:

process for producing ozone. Ozone is manufactured by drawing oxygen (O2) into the ozone generator and exposing it to multiple high voltage electrical discharges. This causes a percentage of the oxygen molecules to dissociate and reassemble as ozone (O3). The ozone is drawn into the water by a venturi injector / mixer allowing the ozone to be injected into the water under a vacuum condition. A pressure differential must be maintained across the venturi injector. This pressure causes a vacuum that ...
