Ozone is an unstable gas with a very short half-life, which means that it reacts and disappears very fast. Ozone exists naturally in the atmosphere where it is a vital gas that protects us from harmful UV-radiation. The highest concentration of ozone is found in the stratosphere, which is also called the ozone layer.Read more
Ozone is essentially made up by oxygen. When an oxygen molecule (O2) is exposed to electric high voltage (or Uvlight in the stratosphere), the oxygen molecule (O2) is split into two oxygen atoms (O1). The oxygen atom (O1) then connects to oxygen molecules (O2) and ozone (O3) is formed. Ozone then reacts with other substances and the single oxygen atom (O1) disconnects from the ozone molecule (O3), which then again turns into an oxygen Molecule.
The Oxygen - Ozone - Oxygen cycle:
The cycle is completed. Disinfection/Sanitation mechanism: Because of its high oxidation potential, ozone oxidizes cell components of the bacterial cell wall. This is a consequence of cell wall penetration. Once ozone has entered the cell, it oxidizes all essential components (enzymes, proteins, DNA, RNA). When the celular membrane is damaged during this process, the cell wall will fall apart. This is called lysis. During ozonation of RSW systems ozone will react with all organic material. Fat and particles will float to the surface. Leaving behind a clean hold and pipeline system.Hide

The Razone water treatment solution developed by Ålesund-based Normex to provide improved water quality and fish health in recirculation aquaculture system (RAS) plants is now being tested at the Mowi Steinsvik smolt facility in Volda local authority. Being conducted in cooperation with scientists from the Nofima food research institute, this project will report its conclusions around the end of 2020.
