Ozone has literally thousands of uses. However it is most commonly used for drinking water disinfection, disinfection of packaging (ie. bottles before filling) and de-odourisation of hotel rooms, smoking areas, refuse areas.
Ozone (O3) is made by splitting an Oxygen (O2) molecule, and re-combining the atoms as an odd number. This can be done in two ways.
- Using a high voltage discharge, commonly referred to as Corona Discharge. Think of it as making lightning in a box.
- Using Ultra Violet light at a particular frequency.
Wassertec manufacture both types of ozone generator. As a rule Corona Discharge is better suited to water treatment and Ultra Violet is better for Air treatment.
In low concentrations (<0.2ppm) ozone is not harmful. In high concentrations ozone can be very harmful.
Wassertec products are designed with Health and Safety in mind, so as to ensure that users are not exposed to high levels of ozone. Our industrial systems feature ambient ozone detectors, which will switch off the system if high levels are measured.
Wassertec ozone generators are designed and manufactured by us in our Cape Town factory. Our products feature proprietary technology in terms of: Ozone generation, oxygen generation, PLC ozone operating systems, ozone measurement and control software.
We have been building ozone systems since 1998 and have gained extensive experience over the years. If we can help we will gladly assist.
Yes we do. Our Bright Blue systems are fully automated and run software that has been continuously developed and improved since 2007.
We pride ourselves on the quality and reliability of our ozone products. All our ozone generators are built into custom designed laser cut enclosures. Materials used are chosen for their resistance to ozone, mainly stainless steel, alumina ceramic & Teflon. Our electronics have been thoroughly tested for resistance to short circuits and voltage surges. We no not take short cuts or use inferior materials.
All Wassertec products are fully serviceable and we have service technicians.
If it is one of our products then most certainly. However we do not service or repair other brands.
All critical components are kept in stock and can be dispatched within a day or two. Other components in our systems (pumps, filters etc.) are chosen on the basis of their quality AND availability in South Africa. These should therefore be available in SA on any given day.
Ozone replaces chlorine. In addition to this we add Sodium Bromide at 1Kg per 20,000 litres once a year. This improves the efficiency of the ozone. Algaecide is also required. We also recommend a non-foaming Blue Algaecide, which is a once-a-month treatment in summer and can be added every 3 months in Winter. None of these affect the taste or smell of the ozone swimming pool water which will remain neutral.
Yes, all our products have a 1 year warranty.
Absolutely not. These systems are nothing more than Snake Oil. Ozone does not have the health benefits claimed. Furthermore ozone is not soluble in water over 40C and bubble diffusion generally requires a water depth of around 6 metres. So unless your bath is cold and very deep none of the ozone produced will dissolve in any meaningful way. The ozone you smell is the ozone that got away.
Wassertec – Engineered Ozone Solutions for water and air treatment. Ozone Generators. Leaders in Ozone Technology. We not only design and manufacture our Ozone generation systems to the highest quality and safety standards, but we also stock all components at our Cape Town offices – ensuring rapid replacement of spares and minimal downtime.
If you are looking for high quality Ozone Generators, with backup and service to match, you’re in the right place.
