ozone water mixing

 

The ozone sterilization is quick and safe. When the ozone concentrations get to a certain percent, it kills the virus and germ immediately, then breaks up to oxygen, bring no secondary pollution. Compare with the other solution, ozone can diffuse quickly without shadow, operated easily and consume low energy.

The ozone has popular application and important value in the field of air purge, sterilization, deodorization, drinking water cleansing, food processing, dining service, medical etc.

Ozone for Poultry Farming

October 14, 2010 Leave a comment

Ozone in Air

Ozone can be used to destroy airborne bacteria and eliminate odours. Ozone kills micro-organisms by a process of oxidation. Gaseous Ozone can reduce the ammonia concentrations in animal sheds. There are two methods that can be used to treat poultry sheds. When sheds are empty of birds and the litter cleared, high concentrations of ozone can be used to sanitise the building. Then using low level concentrations of ozone during the growth cycle will improve animal hygiene by reducing odorous compounds present in the growing shed.

Ozone in water

Highly ozonated water is of enormous benefit in the slaughterhouse for bacteria control of dead animals and the environment. When chilled ozonated water is sprayed onto chicken meat it will kill pathogens on the surface reducing the potential for spoilage. Slaughterhouse and equipment can also be washed with highly ozonated water acting to disinfect the working area reducing the potential for dangerous bacteria outbreak.

Poultry ozone applications

Ozone is used in the poultry industry as air and water treatments for the storage, incubation of eggs and breeding of healthy birds. Ozone being an effective oxidant, it is mostly used for processing, storage and transport of poultry and meat products. Ozonated water is used to feed the birds as drinking water, wash and sterilize meat and equipments to kill harmful pathogen.

Ozone – Air treatment

  • Ozone oxidizes ammoniacal gases, methane and carbon dioxide, creating a healthier environment for the birds and the staff working in the poultry
  • Ozone is more effective than other air disinfecting systems such as chemical fogging and UV light.
  • In growing birds, ozone in the pens as a gas reduces the amount of bacteria and thus reducing the spread of infection and viruses thereby increasing their health and even weight by up to 18%. Ozone application helps to improve their skin colour.
  • Ozone is more effective than formaldehyde in disinfecting Poultry sheds and requires no dormant period in which the sheds have to remain evacuated. Immediately after disinfecting by ozone at high concentrations, the shed is ventilated and can be inhabited by the birds and staff safely. Unlike formaldehyde, ozone is non-carcinogenic.
  • Hatching hens which are kept under ozonized conditions show an increase in the amount of eggs they lay, and a stronger consistency of the egg shell, because of the corresponding decrease in pathogenic illness and prevention of a toxic build up of disinfectant chemicals. Ozone is used to disinfect incubation rooms and chambers, in the place of chemicals which cause a toxic build-up on the egg shell surfaces and weaken the immune system of the birds.

Ozone in drinking water

Drinking water for poultry is an important dietary requirement. Under normal conditions, birds will consume, approximately, double the quantity as food on weight basis

Poor water quality, can retard growth, curtail egg production, or produce lower egg quality. Feed

conversion has been positively correlated to the presence of sulfate and copper concentrations in the water and Ozone effectively oxidize them and can be easily removed by filtration.

Benefits of ozone in drinking water

  • It reduces waterborne pathogens and prevents development of resistance by pathogen
  • It helps to accelerate weight gain by the birds
  • It improves feed conversion and increased layer output
  • It helps to increase  the dissolved oxygen in water which helps the birds to tolerate heat

Ozone – Water treatment for washing Poultry carcasses, equipments and Cold Storage.

  • Ozonated water is effective as a disinfectant for poultry carcasses without loss of colour and flavour
  • Ozonated water kills instantly more than 5 log units of Salmonella typhirium and Escherichia coli cells, as well as 4,5 log units of Candida albicans and Zygosaccraomyces bacilli.
  • It has been proved that Staphylococcus colonise on de feathering machinery have become endemic with poultry processing plants, and become resistant to normal cleaning and disinfecting, including chlorine. Ozone has got the property of killing and destroying those bacteria effectively
  • Ozone during refrigerated storage of poultry has a pronounced effect on flora causing deteriorations and consequently prolongs the shelf life of poultry in cold storage

Talking about Swimming pool /SPA water treatment

Swimming pool /SPA water treatment

Swimming pool /SPA water treatment
Now, ozone  technology is more and more popular for swimming pool or SPA water treatment for its green and safe.
At pools and SPA,  Ozone Cleaning System is used,  in which water is treated with ozone to obtain clear, chemical free, odourless water. Unlike chlorine, ozone treated water don’t have any harmful effect on hair, skin and eyes.

Ozone is one of the strongest commercially available oxidising agents, and is commonly used for the treatment of water in municipal and industrial applications. The special advantage of ozone is in the environmentally friendly way in which it works. Harmful substances, colours, odours and microorganisms are destroyed directly by oxidation, without the formation of harmful chlorinated by-products.

Ozone is a natural, gaseous molecule and is frequently found in nature. As the ozone layer it protects our planet against ultraviolet solar radiation, and can even be formed in low concentrations by lightening bolts or on hot summer days. The fact that ozone is frequently talked about in connection with air pollution, gives the gas a rather negative image – wrongly!  Applied correctly, it is ideally used suitable as an effective and environmentally friendly alternative to oxidation with chlorine, adsorption (e.g. activated carbon) or separation (e.g. reverse osmosis).

The oxidative effect of ozone

Ozone consists of three oxygen atoms. Under normal near-earth conditions the gas is unstable and thus very reactive. The ozone molecule reacts quickly with a number of organic and inorganic compounds, either through directly acting on the ozone molecule or indirectly through hydroxyl radicals that are created. Ozone is usually used up completely by this oxidation process and breaks back down into oxygen. Any remaining ozone in the off-gas is converted back to oxygen by a residual ozone destructor.
