Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive gas composed of three oxygen atoms, unlike air that is made up of two oxygen atoms. It is both a natural and man-made product that occurs in the atmosphere. The ozone layer is above the Earth’s surface and reduces the amount of harmful UV radiation.
Static mixers dramatically improve ozone mass transfer performance. Static mixers shear ozone bubbles apart, resulting in a 22x increase in the surface area and contact time.
The ozone gas that is naturally occurring at normal temperatures and pressures usually has a strong odor, and this helps in killing bacteria, viruses, and germs. This is done with the help of an ozone static mixer.
Static mixers are any static device for the sole purpose of mixing two flows together. An ozone static mixer specifically mixes ozone (gas) with water (a liquid). In water treatment applications it goes with the principle of breaking the smallest possible bubbles. Dissolving ozone gas into water.
Ozone that is for industrial uses is usually artificially from the available oxygen in the air, or by concentrating oxygen. This ozone is then dissolved into water or used as a gas for several industrial applications.
Ozone mixing is often an important part of the manufacturing process in many industries, and this cannot be done without an ozone mixer.
Komax Systems is one of the few companies that manufacture ozone mixers. There are a variety of steels, grades, and alloys that work such as stainless steel, carbon steel, and exotic alloy options. This is a motionless mixer whose main purpose is to inject ozone into another liquid or gas.
The use of ozone for industrial applications is new, and not every manufacturer has figured out the technology.
The patented 20-micron porous ozone injector by Komax is for injecting micro size ozone bubbles into another liquid or gas. The mixer will hardly require any servicing in its 20 year lifetime. For any industry, this makes it a cost-effective option for the plant.
There are several industrial applications of the ozone mixer. A few examples are:
Laundry: Industrial laundry requirements are far greater than in households. This is why ozone has started to be used for chemical savings and cost savings.
Fire restoration: This one of the most popular uses of ozone, for getting rid of the smell of smoke after a fire has died down. Ozone has odor destruction properties that help in this regard.
Water treatment: Another popular use of ozone in water treatment, used across North America. Disinfecting and purifying water can be done easily with the help of ozone. Ozone dissolves into water to create aqueous ozone.
When it comes to ozone mixers, there can be no alternative to the Komax ozone mixer. They always offer the utmost efficiency and performance. If you have specific sizing and needs, contact them as their engineers can create a custom solution for you.
