The Prozone Water Products Solution

Prozone Water Products Inc., founded by physicist Ron Barnes in 1977, provides unique solutions and leading edge Ozone, Germicidal UV-C, and Advanced Oxidation Process technologies relating to purification processes of fluids, air and surfaces. Prozone’s expertise is designing safe and efficient methods for industrial and commercial water treatment. Specializing in partnering with industry leaders to solve diverse sanitation and purification problems, Prozone is the trusted authority.

Prozone has manufactured and supplied over a million purification systems throughout the world for point-of-use drinking water, cistern and well water systems, aquatics systems, plant, fruit, and vegetable processing systems, fisheries, hatcheries, cooling towers, recreational water, and waste and sewage water treatment.

As a recognized industry leader, Prozone’s Hybrid Cold Plasma systems deliver sustainable, on-site production of oxidizers without harmful by-products. Specializing in solving individual problems and meeting custom requirements, Prozone has the oxidizing equipment to fulfill the need.

Through its research, Prozone continues to innovate oxidation systems technology development for International organizations such as United Nations, NASA, Universities, Corporations and the Departments of Agriculture, Defense and the Interior.

The Advanced Oxidation Solution

Ozone has long been recognized as the most powerful, readily available oxidation method. It is capable of destroying the most common contaminants and is far better than the classical chemical oxidizers. Yet some of the most toxic contaminants are still difficult to destroy, even with ozone. By combining two technologies of ozone generation and low pressure Germicidal UV-C, the Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) has emerged as the ultimate process to oxidize and sanitize difficult to remove contaminants. AOP is the conversion of ozone by Germicidal UV-C, in the presence of water, to form high energy hydroxyl radicals. It is the most powerful oxidation/sanitation process available for both water and air.

Ozone + AOP on Bacterial Biofilms

Advanced oxidation processes may be defined as powerful sanitizers and oxidizers produced from ozone after a series of chemical reactions. The products of AOP are extremely reactive in nature. This characteristic is what makes AOP extremely effective in attacking and disrupting biofilms as well as killing all the hazardous microorganisms associated with it.
Biofilms may be thought of as “bacterial cities” where microorganisms shield and protect themselves from the outside environment. Known to harbor bacteria such as Legionella pneumophila and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, biofilms are not just limited to bacteria. Fungus, mold and viruses are also associated with biofilms. Their adhesive nature is due to outer sugar chains of the bacteria, which mesh together forming what could be considered the infrastructure for the bacterial city.
Ozone and Hydroxyl Radicals work like a knife or scissors, physically cutting through the biofilms ripping them apart to individual bacteria. As the oxidizers produced from AOP come into contact with these microorganisms, the Hydroxyl Radical attacks the cell wall of the organism, breaking it down in a process known as cell lysing. Once the cell wall is penetrated, the cell’s cytoplasm is released and the cell expires almost instantly. Ozone and Hydroxyl Radicals attack the microorganism like a shotgun, bursting their membranes and spilling their contents. Ozone and Hydroxyl Radicals are particularly potent anti-microbial agents because organisms cannot develop a resistance to it.

PZ2-Series: Hybrid Advanced Oxidation Systems

A truly sustainable technology, the PZ2-Series Hybrid Ozone Generator produces high concentration levels of Ozone and Hydroxyl Radicals through AOP while also producing Germicidal UV-C. Unique to this system is Prozone’s patented AOP Hybrid Arc Tube which produces pure ozone with no harmful byproducts. Simpler in design, the Hybrid Arc Tube’s output is constant and not negatively affected by temperature or humidity having no need for Oxygen Concentrators or Air Dryers.
