What is AOP Hybrid Technology?

Prozone’s patented AOP Hybrid 20,000 arc tube produces high concentration levels of Ozone and Hydroxyls through Advanced Oxidation Processing (AOP) while also producing Germicidal UV-C. The Hybrid produces the most powerful oxidizers, Ozone and Hydroxyls, to kill bacteria, virus and algae, taking advantage of the Hybrid’s inherent simplicity.

How Prozone works…

Air enters the Hybrid lamp chamber, energizing the Oxygen, converting it to Ozone (O3) and Hydroxyls (OH-). Combined with Ozone and water vapor, the molecule is then irradiated by the Hybrid Germicidal UV-C which converts some of the Ozone to Hydroxyl Radicals (OH-) through Advanced Oxidation Processing (AOP). This mixture is then injected into water for the most powerful of all of nature’s oxidizers for safe, simply brilliant, pure water.

Advanced Oxidation is a process that combines Ozone and Ultra Violet light to instantly destroy or burn up bacteria and pollutants. In water, ozone oxidizes combined chlorine and bromine, freeing them to be continuously re-used.

Oxidation

Ozone destroys algae, viruses, and bacteria on contact with no harmful by-products. Ozone oxidizes combined chlorine and bromine, freeing them to be continuously reused. Therefore the use and cost of chemicals is reduced.

Precipitation

It breaks down harmful chemicals and acts as a flocculent, causing total dissolved solids to be precipitated and easily removed by the water filtration process.

Sanitation

Ozone is the most powerful sanitizer, non-selectively killing all microorganisms while producing no harmful byproducts.

How Ozone is Made…

Ozone is generated when a molecule of oxygen is illuminated by high energy very ultraviolet light. Three atoms of oxygen are bound together instead of the normal two. The extra oxygen atom makes ozone a highly energetic oxidizer.

Ozone Creation Diagram

Ozone destroys algae, viruses, and bacteria on contact – with no harmful by-products. It also breaks down harmful chemicals and acts as a flocculent, causing total dissolved solids to be suspended and easily removed by the water filtration process. Ozone oxidizes combined chlorine and bromine, freeing them to be continuously reused.
