Ozone is recognized worldwide as a broad-spectrum, highly effective disinfectant. It uses air or oxygen as raw material to produce ozone by high frequency and high voltage discharge. Ozone is a strong oxidizing agent that can quickly kill bacteria in the air at a certain concentration. The electrolysis ozone generator has a very important role to play in the disinfection of water plants, do you know how the ozone water generator works and the principle of disinfection?

Here is the content list:

What is the principle of ozone water generators?

The principle of the ozone water generator is based on a high voltage discharge. First of all, the ozone water generator generates a high voltage using the electrical principle; when the high voltage reaches a certain level, the air is broken through and the molecules in the air are ionized. The oxygen molecules are then ionized to produce ozone molecules, which are made up of three oxygen atoms. This is why people generally refer to the ozone generator system as a "negative oxygen ion generator". Medium-high frequency, high-voltage discharge type, quartz dielectric tube structure, water-cooled, oxygen type, airtight type.

The disinfection principle of the ozone water generator.

1. The mechanism of ozone inactivation of bacteria

The inactivation of bacteria by the ozone water generator is always very rapid. Unlike other agents, ozone reacts with the lipids of the cell wall, penetrates the body, and acts on proteins and lipopolysaccharides, changing the permeability of the cell and leading to the death of the bacteria. Ozone also acts on the nuclear material in the cell, such as purines and pyrimidines in nucleic acids to destroy DNA.

2. The mechanism of ozone inactivation of viruses

Ozone acts on viruses by first destroying the four polypeptide chains of the viral capsid protein and causing damage to the RNA, especially the proteins that form it. After oxidation of the phage by ozone, electron microscopic observation shows that its epidermis is broken into many fragments, from which many RNAs are released, interfering with their adsorption to the host body, ozone generator water purifier is not to be doubted for its thoroughness.

The main function of ozone in drinking water treatment is to oxidize and decompose organic matter and reduce COD, ozone will degrade large molecules of organic matter into small molecules of organic matter, degrade small molecules of organic matter into water and carbon dioxide, and then supplemented by other methods to make the removal of organic matter more economical and effective. The new drinking water standard stipulates that CODMn should be less than 3mg/L, but in many areas, the CODMn in the water source is about 5-6mg/L. The conventional process cannot meet the standard requirements, so an ozone water generator is one of the effective means to degrade COD. Ozone can also disinfect, deodorize, deodorize, decolorize and remove metal ions such as iron and manganese without generating side pollutants under normal circumstances. Ozone is particularly effective as a disinfectant against general fine, coliform, and viruses and is tens to hundreds of times more powerful than the chlorine series of disinfectants.
