I would like to know how to mix Ozone into water - I need the easiest and best way. Thank you.
=== There are number of different ways how to mix ozone (gas) into water (liquid). The difference between these different mixing processes is mainly reflected in :
In general, the most simple mixing processes tend to be the cheapest.
Please, keep in your mind that following list represents only a quick "crosscut" of the field which deals with mixing of gasses to liquids:
In order to further increase effectiveness of mixing process delivered by injectors many installations call for additional installation of:
I would like to also point out one more aspect of water ozonation which is closely related to materials used to construct the ozone generator and ozonation system.
With the technological progress namely in the development and the production of new materials the family of so called ozone resistant materials is slowly, but steadily growing.
Before I will list ozone resistant materials I know about, we should try to understand what is the real meaning of the term "ozone resistant".
From my practical experience with ozone I can honestly say that most people active in ozone field would provide you with different definition of this term. Most definitions will be rather confusing and there is almost 100% guarantee that what ever definition I will present you with, this definition will be challenged as soon as I will make this answer public.
As far as I see it, the problem with the definition of what is and what is not ozone resistant should be seen in the context of the application for which particular materials are used for.
Following is a very simple overview of different applications and the estimated range of concentrations of ozone gas used for these applications:
(*) to my knowledge there are very sophisticated systems in operation which reach ozone concentrations as high as 25%, however vast majority of applications (including commercial applications) operate in ozone concentration range 0 - 2%
As you can see the differences between applications are huge and huge will be also the differences in requirements for the ozone resistance of materials used to construct ozone generator, tubing connections, mixing chambers for water treatment on so on.
In order to reach some reasonable conclusion I started to divide ozone resistant materials into three groups:
