Ozonix

Chemical-Free Bacteria & Corrosion Control

Many water recycling processes use chemicals - chemicals that are costly and harmful to the environment. The Ecosphere Ozonix® Technology offers customers a chemical-free alternative to high-volume water recycling for a diverse range of applications ranging from the oil & natural gas industry and mining to agriculture and municipal wastewater treatment.

Benefits

Chemical Free

With Ozonix® there is no need for chemical biocides. Bacteria tests and dynamic tube blocking tests have established that water processed through Ozonix® shows complete destruction of bacteria cell walls and scale-inhibition effects.

High Volume

A single Ozonix® advanced oxidation system can process up to 3,300 gallons per minute - treating water to a level that is suitable for re-use.

Self Contained

Ozonix® products are mobile, self-contained and fully transportable - they go wherever you need them, require minimal mobilization time and are self-sustaining.

Highly Effective

Ecosphere's patented Ozonix® technology produces highly reactive bacteria killing hydroxyl radicals. Hydroxyl radicals are important to water disinfection because they have a high oxidation potential of 2.80V, which is much higher than the most common disinfectants, ozone (2.07 V) and chlorine (1.36 V).

Industry Proven

Ecosphere's Ozonix® technology is the only advanced oxidation process (AOP) proven to provide high-volume, chemical-free water treatment and recyclin.g services at the frac site for oil & gas operators.

Environmentally Responsible

Ozonix® is the most energy efficient and environmentally sustainable solution for high-volume, chemical-free water management.

How Ozonix® Works

Ozonix® is a patented, Advanced Oxidation Process, which saturates contaminated water with ozone using hydrodynamic cavitation, acoustic cavitation, and electrochemical oxidation to oxidize and destroy micro-organisms, while generating no harmful disinfection byproducts. As water cycles through the Ozonix® Reactor, bacteria cell walls are destroyed and contaminates are oxidized, returning clean water that is ready for re-use and future operations.

1. Ozone

With a high oxidation potential of 2.07V, ozone has the ability to oxidize a wide range of pollutants including bacteria and heavy metals. It kills bacteria through a process called lysis – penetrating cell walls and oxidizing essential components such as DNA to break bacteria cells apart. Ozone purifies water 3000 times faster than chlorine, can be generated on site, and doesn’t require storage.

2. Hydro Cavitation

Hydrodynamic cavitation is a physiochemical process that produces localized hot spots that raise water temperatures around the cavitating bubble to over 900º Fahrenheit. The bubble cavitating causes shock waves in the cavitating media, which then cause sonochemical reactions to occur. These reactions convert ozone into hydroxyl radicals, which have an oxidation potential of 2.8V. Ozone and cavitation have a 3x disinfection multiplier when combined – disinfection can be accomplished in seconds compared to minutes for chlorine which requires significant residence time.

3. Acoustic Cavitation

Similar to hydrodynamic cavitation, acoustic cavitation uses sound waves to produce localized hot spots, capable of raising water temperatures to over 900º Fahrenheit. The bubble cavitating causes shock waves in the cavitating media, which then cause sonochemical reactions to occur. These reactions convert ozone to hydroxyl radicals, which have an oxidation potential of 2.8V. The process is extremely effective at removing biofilms because it decreases the tensile stress of water, which causes the breakdown of bacteria clusters. Acoustic cavitation realizes a 2-3X multiplier when combined with electrochemical oxidation.

4. Electrochemical Oxidation

Electrochemical oxidation uses electricity to create hydroxyl radicals. It is proven highly successful in removing sulfides, nitrogen species, and up to 99% of iron in water sources. In addition, it is extremely effective in removing calcium carbonate (a primary source of scaling) from water because the electricity creates the aqueous form of calcium carbonate. .

Ozonix®

Revolutionary, Patented, Proven Effective

Through an innovative combination of ozone, cavitation and electrochemical processes, Ecosphere developed Ozonix® - a patented, liquid chemical-free technology proven highly effective in water recovery, treatment, and recycling. Ozonix® realizes a 10 to 20 times multiplier over the use of ozone and cavitation when used by themselves, removing 99.99% of bacteria in water and eliminating the need for chemical biocides, scale inhibitors and friction reducers. Disinfection time is fast making it perfect for on the fly, mobile wastewater treatment applications, and Ozonix® generates no harmful disinfection byproducts.
