ROS improves ozone system in a surface water treatment plant - Case Study
Jenfitch, Inc based in Walnut Creek, CA has developed a new oxidant that is effective at lowering TOC, reducing THM’s and HAA5’s, eliminating T & O (taste and odors), effective at controlling HAB’s (harmful algal blooms), improve coagulation & flocculation, eliminate biofilm formation in the distribution systems, and improve the effectiveness of your primary disinfectant.
Jenfitch’ s JC 9450 is one of a series of advanced oxidant using mineral oxychloride technology (MxClyOz) to help improve the removal of pathogens, organic contaminants and inorganic contaminants. JC 9450 is a new and advanced oxidant that generates reactive oxygen species (ROS) and is NSF Standard 60 approved up to 84 mg/l. ROS are chemically reactive chemicals species that contain oxygen (i.e., ozone, singlet oxygen, hydroxyl radical ions, peroxides, and superoxide). The main advantage of using JC 9450 is its ability to generate a high concentration of hydroxyl radical ions initially. Hydroxyl radical ions are extremely reactive, and they react with any molecule in its path, turning that molecule into a free radical and thus propagating a chain reaction. At low concentrations, it can disinfect and eliminate organic and inorganic pathogens in a water treatment system without creating disinfection by-products. In Figure 1, we compare the oxidizing potential of various oxidizing reagents using Electrochemical Potential (Ev):
