Primozone– Maintenance free and easy to operate ozone generators thanks to a unique energy saving and modular plate reactor technology with built-in redundancy. Provides lower CAPEX and OPEX compared to the conventional ozone generating systems.
Only maintenance is a yearly inspection – NO time consuming cleaning of the reactor is required.
Capacity turndown and total energy consumption is nearly linear where if operated at 10% capacity, the energy consumed is 10% of max capacity. This compares to competitor technologies if at 10% capacity still consumes approximately 80% of max energy.
Primozone uses 50% less oxygen compared to a traditional ozone generator. Primozone’s oxygen consumption will vary according to the ozone production where traditional ozone generators have a constant oxygen flow independent of the amount of ozone produced. This results in 20% energy savings at full capacity and significantly more savings as capacity/demand is reduced.
Ozone is one of the strongest oxidants and disinfectants used in treating water and wastewater. Used for removal of taste/odor, color, turbidity, reduced metals, inorganic compounds (iron, manganese, sulfide) total organic carbon (TOC) and chlorine disinfection by product (DBP) precursors. As a disinfectant it inactivates viruses, bacteria, E-coli, Giardia, Cryptosporidium.
In wastewater disinfection, EPA is looking at possible virus inactivation which may make Ozone the ideal choice since UV alone could not meet this requirement.
The Primozone ozone technology is different in many ways which means that we, for example, can offer maintenance free and high performance ozone generators.
- Stainless steel and aluminum construction
- No specialists needed to operate or maintain
- Modular and scaleable
- Maintenance free (yearly inspection, no reactor cleaning)
Primozone’s capacity turndown and total energy consumption is nearly linear where if operated at 10% capacity, the energy consumed is 10% of max capacity. This compares to competitor technologies if at 10% capacity still consumes approximately 80% of max energy.
Primozone’s ozone concentration has 7 times more production capacity at higher concentration than competitive technologies (Horizontal tube generator type; ie Ozonia®, Wedeco®)
High ozone concentration and low energy consumption
Primozone uses an improved version of the cold plasma ozone generation method (or dielectric barrier discharge method) to produce ozone. The Primozone method enables a more efficient creation of free oxygen radicals, which in turn makes it possible to create ozone with higher concentrations.
Benefits with the Primozone cold plasma ozone generation technology
High ozone concentration
With the Primozone cold plasma ozone technology it is possible to produce ozone with an ozone concentration of up to 20 wt%. The high concentration is important for the dissolution of the ozone gas in water. The higher the concentration, the higher the efficiency in dissolving the ozone gas in water. Tests of the Primozone GM ozone generator measured a 98% dissolution rate.
High ozone concentration means low oxygen consumption
The Primozone ozone generators produce ozone with a concentration of 13.4 wt% which is equivalent of 0.01 O3 lb/cuft 200g O3/Nm3 (200 grams of ozone per normal cubic meter oxygen) while traditional ozone generators produce ozone with a concentration of 100g O3/Nm3. This means that with a 100% capacity the Primozone ozone generator uses half the amount of oxygen compared to a traditional ozone generator.
Another unique feature with the Primozone ozone generator technology is that the oxygen consumption will vary according to the ozone production. Traditional ozone generators have a constant oxygen flow independent of the amount of ozone produced.
Low oxygen consumption means low energy consumption
One of the key advantages with the Primozone® ozone generator technology is its energy saving capability. A Primozone GM ozone generator can save up to 50% energy compared to a traditional ozone generator. Comparing it also uses less oxygen and will vary the oxygen consumption according to the capacity used.
Ozone as a method to remove iron and manganese
Ozone is used to oxidize Iron and Manganese that is commonly found in groundwater to form insoluble particulates that can easily be filtered from the water. An ozone system can be implemented very efficiently and reliably with no maintenance costs and low operational costs. Important to consider the ease of Primozone system to carefully dose ozone to not over-oxidize manganes to permanganate which could pass through filtration and give water a pink color. Primozone’s ease of automation ensures secure and efficient control of a complex and sensitive process.
