Perfecting the Tomato Plant

Each day 150 big rigs, each pulling two large containers of tomatoes, rumble through a rural California town to the local tomato processing plant. From July to September each year, the plant receives 810,000 lb of tomatoes each day. Operating three shifts 24/7 during the harvest season, the company produces more than 100 different products, such as pizza sauce, marinara sauce and tomato sauce, largely for the food service industry.

Ozone Dose Sizing

Do you feel sizing an ozonation system is easy? While sizing and ozone generator selection is easy for many applications that have a consistent source water, it is not a simple process for all source waters or treatment objectives.

Consistent Source Water Sizing

Consistent feedwaters are typically from groundwater not under the influence of surface water and from water sources that employ significant pretreatment processes. These water sources will have level ozone demands and are sized by flow using the flowing ozone generator sizing equation:

Innovation of an Invention

Trial and error methods are often used when developing products. Thomas Edison, with 1,093 patents, more than any other inventor, took many products and ideas and made them better. He would merely take a very good product, such as the light bulb, and make it commercially available. The light bulb had already been invented and used in labs, but Edison took the idea and developed it into a cost-effective product that could be sold commercially.
