Ozone and Oxygen treatment are an essential part of the wastewater system. Force main oxygen treatment, coupled with ozone treatment at the pump station can effectively keep at system odor free, without the use of chemical, This can reduce cost, labor, and risk to human health.
One of the ongoing problems of the fracking industry is water treatment. Finding alternate sources of water and water reuse are an important part of most fracking operations. Ozone plays a big role in this market. Replacing biocides and descaling agents with ozone allows for process water reuse and leads to a reduction of water usage and waste, Ozone, when added to “sour water” can reduce the Hydrogen Sulfide, bacteria, viruses and other odors making this water easier to work with.
In August 2001, The FDA officially published the approval of Ozone use in the food industry. As one of the most powerful oxidants, it is capable of inactivating a wide variety of pathogens with short contact times. It is used for such things as water treatment, sanitizing, CIPs, odor control and wash water. It has proven extremely effective in post-harvest disinfection and in wastewater facilities for both disinfection and odor control. This “ green “ disinfection agent has 1.5x the power of Chlorine and 3000x the power of hypochlorous acid.
Ozone is approved for use as a disinfection agent in pharmaceutical water systems. It is most commonly used for disinfection, sanitations, and odor control. As a powerful oxidizer, it works quickly and effectively to destroy bacteria, viruses and other pathogens and odor causing compounds.
