Ozone is a highly effective disinfectant that can destroy a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. It is more potent than traditional disinfectants like chlorine, and it can inactivate pathogens more rapidly.
Ozone has a broad-spectrum disinfection capability, meaning it can effectively target and eliminate a wide range of microorganisms, including those that may be resistant to other disinfection methods. This makes it a versatile option for water treatment.
No harmful by-products
Unlike chlorine, which can form potentially harmful disinfection by-products (DBPs) when reacting with organic matter in water, ozone does not produce significant DBPs. This makes ozone a safer and more environmentally friendly option for water treatment.
Taste and odour control
Ozone can effectively remove unpleasant tastes and odours from water caused by organic compounds, such as algae, bacteria, and other contaminants. It breaks down these compounds, resulting in improved water quality and a more pleasant drinking experience.
Ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent, capable of breaking down and removing various organic and inorganic contaminants present in water. It can oxidize and degrade substances such as pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals, and taste- and odour-causing compounds.
Overall, ozone’s strong disinfection capacity, broad-spectrum efficacy, minimal formation of harmful by-products, taste and odour control capabilities, and chemical oxidation properties make it a valuable tool in water treatment processes.
