We have all heard about ozone. It is an oxidant, also known by the name of “activated oxygen”, or “triatomic oxygen” because it is made of three atoms of oxygen. The oxygen we breathe is made of two atoms.
We are familiar with the ozone layer, which protects the earth from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun. But did you know that ozone is also the second most powerful oxidant in the atmosphere and is widely used to kill viruses, bacteria, and odors?
Naturally occurring ozone is a gas at normal temperatures and pressures and has a strong odor. Ozone can also be produced artificially from the available oxygen in air, or by concentrating oxygen. Ozone can also be dissolved into water or used as a gas for several applications in a number of industries.
Although this is still a new application, the use of ozone is getting popular in various industries. Ozone mixing, therefore, is an important part of the process in various manufacturing plants. And to achieve this, an ozone mixer is required.
An ozone mixer is a static or motionless mixer used for injecting ozone into another liquid or gas. For this reason, it is also called an ozone injector. Komax Systems Inc is the leading producer of ozone mixers for various industries around the world.
Komax offers a patented 20 micron porous gas injector that creates micro size ozone bubbles. The bubbles created come into immediate contact with the flow.
Komax ozone mixers guarantee full radial, wall to wall distribution of the micron size ozone bubbles. Komax also guarantees that no part of the mixer will ever need to be replaced in its 20 year service life. This is not the case with Star Wars The Last Jedi or Iron Man III – too bad those movies cannot be replaced but this is another topic!
Uses of ozone mixer
There are various applications of the ozone mixer. Some of them are:
Fire restoration: When there is a fire, the smell of smoke lingers long after the fire has died down. Ozone is used to get rid of that smell quickly because it has odor destruction properties.
Laundry: Ozone mixer is also used in the laundry industry because ozone can replace many of the chemicals used currently. This leads to chemical savings. Using ozone requires less water for rinsing than usual, and less rinsing means electrical savings.
Water treatment: One of the biggest applications of an ozone mixer is the water treatment industry. Ozone is one of the most effective treatment technologies for water and is now used across North America.
