Primozone to supply ozone generators for York water treatment

Primozone adds that the Acomb Landing project will provide water to the residents of York from early 2013 and replaces the ageing current water treatment works which have provided drinking water to residents of York since 1846. The new treatment works will be able to treat more water, around 35,000,000 litres per day, and will exceed current water quality standards, supplying improved drinking water.

Primozone’s ozone package will be used to remove pesticides from the water at the new works. The package includes Primozone’s ozone generators, control systems, measuring tools, dissolution mixing systems, static mixers and ozone destructors. It will be delivered in January 2012.

Primozone says that water treatment with ozone is effective and harmless to the environment when compared to treatment with chemicals such as chlorine. Oxidation by ozone kills microorganisms and cleans, treats, and disinfects water. It can also be used to control the taste, odour and colour of water.

Primozone claims that its ozone generators generate more ozone and use less energy than other ozone generators on the market. They generate ozone in high concentrations through a cold plasma process and produce between 100 and 900 grams of ozone per hour, with an ozone concentration of up to or more than 300g 03/Nm³O2, or 20% by weight. The high ozone concentration results in greatly improved efficiency in dissolving the ozone gas in the water, and a reduced oxygen and energy consumption, using up to 70% less energy. The generators also feature a built-in flexible modern monitoring and control system.

“We are very happy to have been chosen for this prestigious and groundbreaking project,” said Anders Schening, CEO of Primozone. “The Acomb Landing water treatment works has been designed to be as modern, safe and efficient as possible, and Primozone’s new efficient and energy efficient ozone generators are perfectly matched to contribute to give York’s residents some of the best quality drinking water in the world.”
