Drinking and industrial water disinfection
Ozone has been used for many years to purify drinking water and improve its properties. Conventional water purification filters remove only mechanical particles from the water, so additional water purification equipment is often required. Ozone effectively kills viruses, bacteria, fungi, and other pathogens in water. Ozonation also improves the smell of water, increases transparency and, unlike chlorine, does not form chlorinated by-products. Water ozonation can be applied in drinking water treatment factories, in companies that use water in their production processes, for example, to washing the equipment and products or to reuse the water.
