The USO 3 represents a completely new trendsetting technology. It utilizes cavitation paired with the power of an Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP). The cavitation generated through the use of ultrasound causes extremely high local pressures and temperatures without increasing the liquid temperature above ambient level. These local effects result in the breakdown of solids and aid in the efficient use of ozone in the AOP. Mixing unit OptimiXer: Effective dissolving of gases in liquids results in creating an ideal setting for the AOP to take place. The OptimiXer is a newly developed system for dissolving gases in liquids significantly optimizing the efficiency and dissolving time. Ultrasound generators and Piezo-unit: Direct application of the ultrasound into the liquid using piezo-ceramic transducers. Digital control of the ultrasound with automatic frequency adjustment.
Main advantages of the USO3
In addition to solving current problems the technology also offers problem solutions for the future, e.g. EDC’s and PPCP’s degradation without the necessity to invest in additional equipment.
Potential application areas of the USO 3
Application examples of the USO3 in a sewage plant
Operated as last treatment step the USO3 affects the process at several different places:
Besides the application as USO3 (combination with ozone) the technology can also be used as a stand-alone gas saturation process - see the USO2 product line.
The USO 3 technology utilizes an Advance Oxidation Process (AOP) to achieve the highest level of efficiency. It combines the well-known advantages of ozone with the power of ultrasound.
Either through upstream head or via pump, the liquid enters the unit.
The influent is pre-treated in the initial ultrasound section. The high frequency ultrasound disintegrates the bacteria clusters and cracks the cell walls.
The flow then continues to the first OptimiXer where the optimal dispersion of the ozone gas is accomplished. The weakened bacteria are highly susceptible to oxidation at this phase. The second ultrasound section breaks the bacteria down further, increasing the reaction surface while at the same time expediting the oxidation process. The result is a highly efficient disinfection of the influent.
A standard computer/menu interface with the ability to monitor and control the unit remotely is included in every USO 3.
Upon customer request, optional sensors can be easily integrated to be part of the plant’s overall system.
