Ozonation is believed to be effective in partially oxidizing organic material and increasing the polarity of these organics. The charged species are then more amenable to removal using MIEX®DOC resin. The following tests demonstrate this principle.
Ozonation Pretreatment to MIEX® Process
The MIEX®DOC process is a proven technology for the removal of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from potable and wastewater sources. Occasionally, waters are found to contain an intractable fraction of organic carbon and in such instances, the performance of the MIEX®DOC technology can be enhanced with ozonation.
