Ozone Has Many Applications

Industrial Processes

Ozmotics offers Industrial Ozone Generators

Thanks to intensive development work on more efficient ozone generation, our industrial ozone generators are applicable to a wide variety of industry applications. The rapid growth of interest in ozone as an oxidant is due to its high oxidative potential and the selectivity of the processes that occur. Virtually no residual materials are produced. Industrial applications for ozone technology exploit the enormous disinfection potential as well as the selective oxidation properties of this oxidant.

  • Disinfection of industrial and chemical freshwater, process water and cooling water
  • Disinfection, detoxification, de-coloration and deodorization of industrial wastewater and improvement of its biodegradability
  • Oxidation of industrial off gasses
  • Chemical oxidation
  • Optical brightening and bleaching of raw materials (i.e. clay) and products (i.e. paper)
  • Improvement of coating processes
  • Organic syntheses (Ozonolysis processes)
  • Cyanide Regeneration

The use of ozone in industrial processes has increased significantly in recent years. Ozone is an extremely powerful oxidant, yet it does not harm the environment or leave behind toxic by-products. Process ozone levels must be accurately monitored in order to ensure reliable and efficient process control. In addition, since ozone is toxic above certain concentration levels, worker exposure to ambient ozone must be carefully monitored in order to meet OSHA requirements.

OSHA Requirement Quantity Description
Threshold Limit Value-Time Weighted Average
0.1 ppmv The maximum continuous ozone concentration to which an individual can be exposed during a normal 8 hour day / 40 hour work week without adverse effects.
Threshold Limit Value-Short-Term Exposure Limit
0.3 ppmv The maximum intermittent ozone concentration to which an individual can be exposed (provided that TLV-TWA is not exceeded) for no longer than 15 minutes and no more than 4 times per day (with at least 1 hour between exposures.)
