Ozone, Oxygen: Transfer into Water

Researching and developing water treatment products and components reveal a lot of information and observations. A recent study on the efficacy of porous PTFE tubing for the transfer of gases, such as ozone or oxygen, into water proved some very interesting theories and revealed some additional data. One test done on lake water (Water Quality Products, December 2004)1 proved very beneficial in reducing bacteria. The comparison of ozone transfer against several sizes air stones and a venturi in this test was also very interesting.

Rapid Pipeline Disinfection

Two years of research has produced a new disinfection method for drinking water distribution system using ozone technology. This innovation is called Rapid Pipeline Disinfection and can disinfect a pipeline in about one hour as compared to traditional methods using chlorine that can take up to 24 hours or more.
Water quality leaving treatment plants of North American water utilities is exceptional and protects public health thanks to a variety of treatment tools these water treatment professionals have at their disposal.
