Mazzei Venturi for Spa Solutions

MAZZEI SPA SOLUTIONS

Mazzei helps to keep spas clean and clear whether ozone is the oxidizing agent used for disinfection or chlorine, Mazzei components are the efficient and effective method to get the job done.

Chemical Feed for Spas

Mazzei®patented Venturi Injectors are high-efficiency, differential pressure injectors with internal vanes for optimal mixing. When a sufficient pressure difference exists between the inlet and outlet ports of the injector, a vacuum is created, initiating suction through the suction port, pulling your liquid or gas into the water system. Mazzei Venturi injectors for the spa are made of PVDF which offers excellent chemical resistance to oxidizing agents such as chlorine and ozone. The result… many years of low maintenance chemical injection keeping your spa water sanitized.

Ozonation for Spas

Ozone has been used for over 65 years to purify pool and spa water. It purifies water quickly and efficiently – 3,000 times faster than chlorine – leaving no by-products except pure oxygen. In contrast, chlorine leaves a chemical by-product, hypochloric acid, and additional salts in water applications. The use of ozone in spas reduces the need for high chemical doses, helps destroy bacteria, viruses, algae and yeasts and oxidizes other contaminants which reduces odor and prolongs the life of spa equipment. Mazzei offers an efficient and effective system for transferring ozone into your spa water – where it belongs.

The Mazzei ozone contacting system is comprised of a Mazzei Venturi Injector which pulls the ozone gas into the water thoroughly exposing the ozone to the water. The addition of aMazzei Flash Reactor or LGM renews the interface of the ozone with the water through aggressive mixing, and then theMazzei MTM nozzle or nozzle wall fitting re-shears the gas bubbles to once again renew the gas-liquid interface resulting in maximum dissolution of ozone in the water. The ozone not only destroys microorganisms in your spa water, it also breaks down harmful chemicals and causes total dissolved solids to clump together for easier removal by the filter. The result is clean water that is good for the spa equipment and more enjoyable for you – the water is crystal clear and feels softer to the skin.

Worn-out of the conventional medicinal treatments? Try ozone therapy, instead

Worn-out of the conventional medicinal treatments? Try ozone therapy, instead. Widely used during World War I to disinfect wounds and which has proved to be useful in treating chronic cases of asthma, chronic obstructive airway disease, diabetic foot ulcers, various cancers and more.

The blue-coloured form of oxygen, which nourishes healthy cells and destroys malfunctioning ones, rejuvenates cells and helps in healing wounds and repairing tissues.

“It is safe and is very effective because it attacks and removes disease-causing agents, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeast and toxic metals,” Dr S.S. Sibia, Director, Sibia Medical Centre, Ludhiana told IANS. Ozone is an element found naturally in the atmosphere and a molecule consists of three atoms of oxygen. It quickly combines with the blood, lymph and other tissues of body and is more powerful than plain Oxygen.

When medical ozone enters the bloodstream, it separates into O2 and O, the healthy cells, armed with antioxidants, absorb the O2 and repel the O, which zeroes in on the diseased cells and neutralizes them, Sibia explained. “We also use it as complementary therapy in treatment of various types of cancers and for general immune-activation for allergic diseases and improve the body’s inherent resistance,” Sibia added.

The most commonly reported success stories are of diabetic foot treatment with Ozone. Ozone therapy is administered in many different ways in the human body–drinking ozonated water, saunas, rectal means, intravesical, ozonated saline, soft tissue and joint injection and directly ozonating the patient’s blood.

Ozone can be injected into and around the joints for the treatment of inflamed and painful joints and is even effective for non-healing ulcers. Ozonised oil is used as an ointment for pain relief and is even used as antiseptic. There’s another aspect to ozone therapy.

“It involves injecting ozone into the skin, which boosts oxygen levels and helps to deeply cleanse impurities in the skin. It is used for the treatment of both oily and acne skin and also reduces inflammation,” Dr Chiranjiv Chabbra, Dermatologist, Skin Alive Clinic, New Delhi told IANS.

“Ozone therapy works wonders for most people. It’s100 per cent natural with zero chemicals, zero medication, zero down time, zero discomfort, and zero side effects. It’s relatively affordable too,” Chabbra added.

To this end, Ozone can be used to balance the skin’s ph level and lighten its tone. It also works wonders for lines, wrinkles and open pores. “A large number of people are coming to resolve issues of infected skin and we recommend ozone therapy as it helps to get rid of dry and infected layers,” Dr Priyanka Prakash, Dermatologist, Paras Hospital, Gurgaon told IANS.

Many centres offer ozone therapy for aesthetics and against dandruff, acne and a host of other skin conditions.
“We use ozone therapy primarily to treat problems of infected skin as it helps in killing the bacterial activity that causes acne or dandruff,” Prakash noted.

Ozone use in dental applications

Ozone therapy kills bacteria, fights caries, helps healing

Read full story HERE:

Ozone therapy is a veritable Swiss army knife for dentistry, according to general practitioner Eric Zaremski, DDS. It kills bacteria, controls caries and periodontal disease, helps remineralize teeth, and heals tissue after oral surgery.

Eric Zaremski, DDS

Eric Zaremski, DDS, general and cosmetic dentist in Greenbrae, CA.

Dr. Zaremski and his staff have incorporated ozone into just about every procedure — from prophies to root canals — for the last decade in his practice in Greenbrae, CA.

“We know that it kills pathogens, and we know that it helps heal,” he told DrBicuspid.com. “The major problems we have in dentistry are bacterial or, to a lesser degree, fungally or virally mediated. If we have a tool that can lessen those agents, then a lot of dental issues will be reduced.”

What it is and how it works

Many cities in the U.S. and around the world use ozone to sterilize public water systems, and ozone is commonly used to sterilize fruits, vegetables, and bottled water and soft drinks.

More than 4,000 U.S. dentists have been trained to integrate ozone therapy into their practices, Phil Mollica, DMD, told DrBicuspid.com. Dr. Mollica is president of the American Academy of Ozonotherapy (AAO) and has a practice in Saddle Brook, NJ. The AAO started developing the integration of ozone into dental practices in 1998 and has been training dentists worldwide since 2002.

Ozone’s disinfectant qualities extend to cleaning stainless steel instruments, Dr. Zaremski noted. You would have to send a dental instrument through 168 cycles in a typical U.S. autoclave to kill prions, the infectious agents thought to be the cause of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies such as mad cow disease. But ozone kills prions instantly, he said, calling it a “huge benefit.”

Ozone, a naturally occurring gas, is the crisp smell in the air produced by lightning storms. When air is passed through an ozone generator, it breaks apart the oxygen molecules to produce ozone’s nascent form, ozone gas. Ozone levels in the atmosphere, which are easy to measure, are used to measure smog, as pollutants such as carbon monoxide and nitric oxide are hard to measure, Dr. Zaremski explained. When used in medical or dental applications, gas ozone molecules break apart bacterial or fungal cell walls, killing the pathogens.

Ozone has three categories of application: as a gas, in water, or in vegetable oil.

Ozone application

Ozone is great because it’s such a multifaceted tool in the office, both as a preventive and in treatment, according to Dr. Zaremski.

Dr. Zaremski has ozone generators in all three of his operatories.

“We try to use it with every patient every day in all the procedures we do,” he said.

Ozone gas is pumped through the office’s water lines and saliva ejectors to reduce the amount of bacteria.

“It certainly helps, because, when we’re treating patients, the bacteria from their mouths get into the air, and we’re breathing it even though we have face masks on,” he explained. “But using [water with ozone gas pumped into it] certainly reduces a lot of that bacteria that comes up into the air that we’re breathing.”

He noted that the benefit extends beyond the staff.

“It makes the office a lot safer and hygienic for patients as well as staff,” Dr. Zaremski said.

“It makes the office a lot safer and hygienic for patients as well as staff.”

Ozone’s dual ability to disinfect and heal is particularly beneficial in controlling caries, which are caused by bacteria.

“We don’t know if we’re actually getting out all the bacteria by drilling out the cavity,” Dr. Zaremski said. Applying ozone gas into cavities diffuses it into the tooth’s pores, killing much more bacteria than drilling and filling.

“We’re not getting as many cavities two or three years down the road after we’ve done a filling,” he noted.

Ozone also desensitizes teeth, Dr. Zaremski said.

For extractions, he pumps ozone gas into the socket, then rinses the socket with ozonated water before adding an ozone oil-soaked gel foam to stimulate healing.

“I haven’t had a dry socket in years using ozone,” he said. “Hardly any patients have any post-op pain after extractions.”

Ozone therapy is also beneficial for treating periodontal disease, Dr. Zaremski said, and he estimates that he treats about 400 to 500 patients a year for some form of periodontal issue.

“We see pretty close to full resolution and healing by adding ozone to the treatments in almost all cases,” he said.

One patient had a 15-mm pocket in an implant in the upper arch, which was reduced to 4 mm following ozone treatments, Dr. Zaremski said. The healing time depends on the severity of the problem, usually within three months.

“That was huge,” he said. “That doesn’t happen every day, but it does help quite a bit.”

Ozone training is needed

After being certified as an ozone trainer, Dr. Zaremski has taught several other dentists to use it, including Martin Jablow, DMD, a Woodbridge, NJ, dentist who writes about dental technology. Dr. Jablow explained that he uses ozone in many dental procedures such as caries therapy, remineralization, endodontics, and periodontal therapy.

“In the operatory, it has allowed me to incorporate even more of the concepts of minimally invasive dentistry,” Dr. Jablow wrote. “Ozone led me to increase the amount of glass ionomer I use to remineralize infected teeth.”

A two-day course from certified trainers like Drs. Mollica and Zaremski costs about $2,500 and covers the nuances of ozone therapy, to ensure it is not used indiscriminately or in an incorrect fashion, Dr. Zaremski said. Equipment ranges between $1,000 to $5,000 per operatory.

Certified training qualifies as continuing education credit, according to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD).

FDA oversight

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave ozone therapy a “Generally Recognized as Safe” approval in 2001, according to ozone system supplier Ozone Solutions, for use as a disinfectant for water and food, as well as a preservative. Dr. Zaremski also noted this approval.

In 2002, the FDA issued a regulation exempting dentists from oversight with medical devices. And because generators are used to apply ozone gas, medical practitioners can use it in a medical fashion. Dr. Zaremski noted that only 10% of the agents used in dentistry have FDA approval, like the common use of bleach to disinfect root canals.

Good tool for underserved populations

Ozone therapy would be particularly beneficial on underserved populations as a preventive and in treatment, Dr. Zaremski pointed out.

“It’s a perfect tool for community clinics, because everybody can use it. It’s simple and effective,” he said.

People need to be certified and trained to use ozone therapy, but they don’t need oversight by dentists, because it’s not invasive, so hygienists and assistants can use it.

“Everybody in the office can use it to treat patients, which is huge,” Dr. Zaremski said.

He also uses ozone therapy during his annual trips to Belize, where he provides oral care to local women and children.

Dr. Zaremski is now doing research to analyze the efficacy of ozone on schoolchildren with caries. He will present research at the AAO annual meeting in 2017 and at the International Scientific Committee of Ozone Therapy. He also plans to do research using ozone-encapsulated oils in Belize and at his office. For this, he’ll give ozone capsules to patients to see if their blood enzyme levels change after 30 days.

For Dr. Zaremski, ozone therapy is a way to incorporate minimally invasive techniques.

“I want to do more than just drill holes in people’s heads,” he said.

 

Ozone – Good, or Bad??

Is ozone good or bad?

Often it’s a surprise to people to discover that ozone gas can be good and bad. Ozone is an important gas in urban pollution monitoring, as well as a gas used in industrial processes. Learn more.

We have created a short video that explains the two faces of ozone in a way that is quick and easy to understand.

Good Ozone

ozone production from UV light in the ozone layer
Ozone formation.destruction naturally from UV light

In the atmosphere good ozone protects us from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Many people know about the hole in the ozone layer that was created by humankind’s use of CFCs. Thankfully CFCs are now banned and the ozone layer hole is shrinking.

 

Bad Ozone

ozone pollution from smog
Ozone production from smot

At ground level in urban environments bad ozone is created by the reaction of urban pollution and sunlight. Photochemical smog is the technical term for this conversion process. In this way ozone becomes a powerful urban pollutant with negative health effects.

 

Uses of Ozone

Lesser known is that ozone is very useful gas for cleaning and sterilizing. Bacteria and odor can be broken down by ozone gas. It is often used in the food industry. For example, for sterilizing fruit and vegetables. It has been used in water treatment plants for many years. Generating ozone in enclosed spaces can expose people to ozone gas. For example, when machinery leaks. So although ozone is useful it is also important that its use is controlled especially when there are people around.

 

Health Issues

Breathing even small amounts of ozone can be harmful. Symptoms include: coughing, shortness of breath, and aggravation of lung diseases like asthma. At higher concentrations you can smell ozone, but it becomes harmful even at lower doses. For that reason many countries have set an exposure limit of 100 ppb (parts per billion) ozone. In some countries, like Sweden, the limit is set even lower. Ozone is one of six common pollutants limited by the United States Environmental Protection Agencies and other environmental regulators. Exposure to ozone in the workplace is controlled by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and their counterparts around the world.

 

How to Measure Ozone Levels

So measuring and monitoring ozone is important for human health – outdoors and indoors. The problem is that the equipment for measuring ozone is either a) accurate but too expensive, or b) affordable but not accurate. Which is why Aeroqual came up with option C: monitors that are both accurate and affordable.

Updates to municipal water treatment system using ozone

Renovations begin on water tank032416 city pic 2

Read full story HERE

At Wednesday’s city commission meeting, commissioners voted in favor of two water projects in the first portion of the council meeting, which was an action session continued from last week.

In July of 2015, the commission approved a contract with Xylem/Wedeco Water Solutions to provide detailed manufacturing specification and production of specialized ozone replacement equipment located at the water treatment plant. The current ozone equipment was installed in 1995 with a 15-20 year life expectancy and is utilized for disinfection of the city drinking water.

After the initial award totaled $1,387,685, during the manufacturing plan development for the equipment it was discovered that additional changes would be necessary to assure the equipment would function as designed in the city water treatment plant. The original award amount covered the general cost of the building, however, in many respects, the equipment must be custom built to fit in the existing plant. This was not discovered until the final manufacturing details were reviewed.

The changes to plan increase the costs by $111,912 or 8.1 percent and were approved by the commission.

“The whole project, at this point, is waiting for final approval from KDHE,” said Frank Abart, public works director. “We expect probably before the end of next week (they will approve it) and then we will request authority from the city commission to advertise the bids. So, they will set a date and a time to receive bids. … We will let the market determine the actual price of the installation of the equipment.”

In August of 2015 the commission approved a contract with Utility Service Group to rehabilitate two water storage tanks located at the Water Treatment Plant. The tanks were constructed in 1947 and have not been rehabilitated since the early 1980s.

The west tank was recently rehabilitated and put back into service. Inspection of the east tank showed it to be in significantly worse shape than the west tank, for unknown reasons.

All 20 of the roof beams need to be replaced due to significant deterioration, at a cost of $88,000. Two inner structural steel support rings need to be replaced at a cost of $31,400. These rings are essential in supporting the roof beams. The change order request also includes the removal of an old interior painter’s ladder that was falling off the interior tank wall, in the amount of $1,875.

Abart said the difference in the conditions of the two tanks was surprising considering they are side-by-side. He anticipates the east tank to be complete by the end of May.

With one tank temporarily out of commission, that leaves Emporia with 1.5 million less gallons of water in reserve. Abart said the KDHE recommends water districts keep one and a half times the daily amount of water used in reserve.

Abart said Lyon county, which uses five million gallons of water a day, is in need of more water storage but the cost to build a new storage tank similar to the ones they are rehabilitating would cost about $3 million for the tank itself, not including new piping. Having excess water supply is most important when the plant has to temporarily shut down for maintenance. Abart said about once a year the plant pipes and tanks are cleaned of deposit build up, a process which takes about a day and requires the plant to shut down.

The total of the three changes is $121,275 and the additional charges were approved.

In other business:

Commissioners approved a bid from Mies Construction Company, Inc. for the Warren Way project at the price of $1,025,607.95.

In the second portion of the meeting, commissioners discussed:
