Ozone for Protein Skimmers

How a Protein Skimmer work.

As part of the life support system (LSS), the Protein Skimmer provides safe, high-quality water, maintaining stable conditions for aquariums, live seafood holdings, and aquaculture operations.

The purpose of protein skimmers or foam fractionators is to remove fine solids and dissolved proteins from water. Protein skimmers remove dissolved particles from a wastewater flow by adsorption of the particle at the gas-liquid surface.

Fractionation filtration is a simple and highly effective process. Through an ozone-resistant venturi injector, tiny bubbles of air and ozone flow into the bottom of the reaction chamber. The organic-laden water to be filtered is introduced at the top of the chamber and exits at the bottom. Thus, this creates a mass mixing effect, with the water traveling cross current to the ozone air mixture.

The concentrated foam that carries the organic molecules is ejected and collected into a waste drain cup while the clean water drains back into the tank via gravity.

The benefit of using ozone for Protein Skimmers

There are many ways in which ozone injection enhances the fractionation process. The oxidizing power of ozone allows it to oxidize a wide range of pathogens, from bacteria to viruses. Crystal-clear water with minimal odors is achieved by using ozone. Additionally, ozone breaks down the structure of larger organic molecules, facilitating their removal through protein skimmer fractionation. Oxygen concentration is dramatically increased by ozone because it is a three-part oxygen molecule. When dosed properly, ozone is very safe and essential for pathogen-free aquaculture.

Ozone dosage for Protein Skimmers.

Using ozone effectively requires correcting the dosage of residual ozone injected into water. A lower concentration will not produce any benefit and will be a waste of money. In contrast, an overdose can harm living creatures and generate extra costs in equipment and energy usage. To use ozone effectively and economically, you must first understand how much BOC/COD is present in the system. We can help you to calculate the amount of ozone required for the desired reduction in BOC/COD. We will provide you with the best ozone generator and all the necessary accessories.

Why Should you choose an ABSOLUTE OZONE® System?

When installed by people who manufacture and install quality ozone generators, a good quality system does not necessarily cost more money, as surprising as it may seem. Some manufacturers may lead you on with false/misleading claims and make statements not backed by empirical data/evidence. They do not seem embarrassed to state on their website inconsistent information about the amount of ozone produced, concentration, and amount of oxygen used to produce ozone. 

A car buyer has access to information such as horsepower, torque, mileage, top speed, and other features that will help him make an informed decision. As a result, it surprises me to see a customer being treated like a person incapable of making informed decisions when he buys an ozone generator system.
