Water treatment systems that use the latest ozone generator technology to break down harmful bacteria and pollutants
Advanced water purification using ozone
Drinking water drawn from rivers and lakes, especially in urban areas, has long been considered to have an unpleasant taste and odor. Mitsubishi Electric's advanced water treatment systems use ozone to greatly improve water quality and taste and eliminate odors. The result is water that's a pleasure to drink.
This ozone generator system is being introduced in a number of water treatment plants throughout the world. Mitsubishi Electric's proprietary ozone generator technology is bringing the health and environmental benefits of high quality drinking water to more and more households.
Properties of ozone and our latest ozone generator technology
Ozone has very strong oxidizing properties that can be used most effectively to fight bacteria and viruses, reduce concentrations of iron, manganese, and sulfur, and eliminate unpleasant tastes and odors in water. Because ozone is made of oxygen and reverts to pure oxygen, it vanishes without a trace after use and leaves no burden on the environment. By far the most common use for ozone worldwide is in the treatment of potable water at many hundreds of municipal treatment works that supply millions of people with high quality water.
Conventionally, silent electric discharge is used to produce ozone from oxygen. Mitsubishi Electric's new ozone generators feature the latest narrow gap technology in a unique system that generates ozone more effectively using a minimal amount of electrical power.
Technology to support more efficient water systems
The broader perspective of water treatment reveals an extensive range of systems. Purified water is piped to homes and businesses. Used water is treated and returned to water courses. Mitsubishi Electric provides a number of technologies used in the management and control of water treatment systems.
These technologies range from sensors to communication and information processing systems. They function to monitor water volume and quality and aid the integration and control of water treatment facilities. Mitsubishi Electric also provides river management and comprehensive water environment solutions.
