Jimco Ozone Flotation
Environmentally Safe Cleaning of Waste Water
JIMCO A/S has advanced the development of a new technology for pre-cleansing organically loaded waste water. The technology is called Ozone Flotation and NO form of chemical treatment is required in the process. When producing ozone we use pure oxygen, produced by an oxygen generator or supplied from an external tank.
The JIMCO Ozone Flotation systems are supplied with electronic controls. The controller continuously measures pH values, flow per hour, and pressure. Level sensors control pump operation via a PLC. Ozone sensors control ozone injection. The combined effect of this close control is optimum operating efficiency. The controller will initiate alarms when water level or thermo failure occurs. JIMCO has developed safe operating procedures for our systems. Oxygen and ozone levels are continuously measured in the plant room. If oxygen or ozone levels exceed specified levels, an alarm in the form of a siren and flashing lights mounted at all entrances will give the necessary warning. The system is also constructed with a safety switch, which cuts the power to all technical installations.
At high pressure the ozone is added using a specially developed system of injectors. The injection of ozone breaks up the organic chains so that flocculation occurs. At the same time atmospheric air is added causing the organic components to be elevated to the surface where they form a layer of sludge. A scraper continuously removes this layer.
