Recently Oxid tech service techs spent some time servicing a few older ozone systems used for livestock drinking water. Both of these systems are used specifically for iron removal from well water on dairy farms.
While these systems are older, only basic maintenance is required. We visit these sites quarterly to change filters, calibrate sensors, and perform basic maintenance. If you are looking for service on your ozone system, call our office, we may be coming to your area soon!
Ozone is an effective and chemical-free solution to iron removal from water. Ozone will efficiently oxidize iron from water to a filterable state. Backwasheable sand filters can be used to efficiently capture iron and discharge to drain safely. A proper ozone system will effectively remove iron, manganese and many other minerals from water reliably with no use of chemicals.
Ozone can be used to efficiently remove many undesirable contaminants from water. If your well water is less than ideal for your livestock, or even for your household, we may be able to help. Ozone is commonly used to remove the following:
Ozone systems require no additional chemicals. Ozone is produced from ambient air and introduced into the water. Bachwashable filters (if necessary for your water) remove the undesirable contaminates from your water with no consumables.
Ozone filtration systems can be compact and simple. Image above shows a basic ozone system with filtration. Systems can also be built for large water flows as shown above. Whatever your need, if your unhappy with your water quality, give us a call today. We can help.
I recently listened to a great podcast on the benefits and necessity of maintenance. This was done by the authors of the book Freakonomics, I enjoy their work.
We often forgo maintenance of older equipment in lieu of new equipment. I am a believer in maintenance and repairs of equipment and infrastructure rather than always replacing. However, I am not excellent at articulating the why. This quick podcast, or you can read the text version, gives great explanations, good for a quick read.
