Ozone Application and Control for Pharmaceutical Waters
Ozone, an unstable tri-atomic form of oxygen, is said to be 2,500 times stronger as a disinfectant than chlorine. In addition, ozone reacts with organics to break them down ultimately to CO2, removing color, odor and eliminating food source that could encourage growth of biofilm. Furthermore, ozone is able to penetrate an existing biofilm layer and inactivate, destroy and eliminate microbial contamination. Most importantly, ozone sanitizes the water and rapidly destroying any microbes.
