Designed and made in South Africa
In 2005 we decided to design an oxygen generator to compliment our ozone technology. This is because you need oxygen to make ozone. Two years of design and development led to the creation of our OX5 oxygen generator. It produces up to 5 litres per minute of oxygen at >93% purity from a compressed air supply. It’s simple, reliable and above all, serviceable.
Made entirely from CNC machined aluminium, the OX5 uses a specially designed ceramic rotary valve to send air alternately to a pair of cylinders. These cylinders are filled with a ‘Molecular Sieve’ which separates the oxygen from other gases in the air. The quality of the molecular sieve is critical to the performance and reliability of the system. We only use the highest quality ‘Nitroxy 5’ sieve, imported from France.
Design and Features
The OX-5 works on the principle of pressure swing absorption to generate oxygen from compressed air. Air is pumped through columns of a molecular sieve which alternately produce Oxygen, or purge Nitrogen & moisture. Central to the design is the rotary distribution valve which reduces complexity and improves reliability.
The unit is constructed entirely from CNC machined 6063 Aluminium. There are no plastic components in the body of the unit and nothing fragile. Innovative use of angled drilling techniques allows the tube end caps to be machined from a single billet.
Oxygen Concentrator Components
Rotary Distribution Valve – Oxygen Concentrators
A simple yet sophisticated rotary valve distributes compressed air evenly between the sieve columns. The valve removes the need for complicated electronics and solenoid valve assemblies.
High Quality Molecular Sieve – Oxygen Concentrators
The sieve columns contain only the highest quality molecular sieve from Arkema. The sieve columns are designed for quick and easy replacement of the sieve in the event of water damage.
Easy Connections – Oxygen Concentrators – Ozone Machines
The central column houses the oxygen receiver as well as the rotary distribution valve. Quick connect push/pull couplings allow sieve columns to be exchanged in minutes.
We design & build high quality Ozone Generators and Ozone Systems for water and air treatment
Founded in Cape Town, January 2002, Wassertec has become the leader in ozone and ozone generation in Southern Africa.
From day one, our vision has been to design and manufacture the highest quality ozone generation systems primarily for the wine and bottled water industries. We believe that by taking care of the quality, the rest will take care of itself.
By collaborating with highly competent electrical engineers and industrial software developers, we have, over the years, created what we believe to be the best ozone systems currently available in their class.
From small beginnings we have grown the company and product line to become the leading manufacturer of ozone equipment in South Africa. Our specialised Bright Blue systems set the standard for ozone in the bottling industry.
