Recent studies were conducted on porous PTFE tubing to test the efficacy of how well the tubing transfers ozone into water.

Recent research has shown that ozone treatment has many advantages over chlorine and other available anti-microbial agents. A key advantage of ozone over chlorine is that it not only kills bacteria, but it also destroys viruses and waterborne parasites.
A new technology shows promise for measuring dissolved ozone and can be used in applications such as bottling plants, water stores and food and beverage plant process water treatment.
Company develops new method of measurement for bottled water plants
Because of the relative and perceived ease of ozone treatment, many bottlers still don't use proven ozone process controls and monitoring technology. Thus, they're yet to assure precise ozone treatment, which is necessary when certain contaminants--such as bromide, from which bromate is formed--are present in the source water. The careful use of controls can result in bottled water of a higher quality.
We will now wrap up The O-Zone Tech Workshop with an ozone quiz. This will be a good chance for you to determine if what has been given has made it into your memory banks or reference library.
In the April 2001 issue of Water Quality Products,associates of TCET presented a new method using ozone to treat cooling tower water. Cooling Treatment Systems, Inc. (CTS) of Englewood, Colo., has adapted this method to produce a water treatment system it now is marketing for cooling towers. CTS submitted this new technology to TCET for testing. The results of these tests are presented here.
