The standards for drinking water are increasingly strict, and for good reason. Clean drinking water is an absolute must, but the trend in today’s regulations tend to place real demands on better disinfection, and that means needed improvements in those systems. One of the best potential improvements? A Komax Static Ozone Mixer.
Why a Static Mixer?
One of the most important parts of the water disinfection process is the dissolution of ozone gas, and a static mixer is the perfect way to optimize that process. Why ozone? It is effective over a wide pH range, and it rapidly reacts to bacteria, viruses, and protozoans. More than that, though, it doesn’t add chemicals to the water. Static mixing can help with that process in the treatment facility. By dividing and recombining the flow stream, the fluid becomes more homogenous. Essentially, a static mixer helps to offer a more uniform rate of turbulent energy dissipation, which creates micromixing. Studies have shown that plants that utilize static mixers show far higher transfer efficiencies over other options.
The Komax Difference
Our Ozone Mixer includes mixing elements that guarantee full wall to wall distribution of micron size ozone bubbles. That means just one Komax static mixer can offer 100 times longer mixing time as opposed to multiple high-speed mechanical mixers. The common pipe line bottom and sidewall short circuiting of ozone is completely eliminated. Over the years, Komax has installed many of these, and not a single bearing or seal has needed replacement within twenty years of service.
