Ozone Processor ??

Postby Ben Moore » Tue Nov 22, 2005 1:57 am

Hi peoples!

I have heard about these lately and i would like to know more about them.

Does anyone use an Ozone Processor?

or can anyone tell me more info about them?

Would they be could in a discus tank?

I have done a google search and spent a long time trying to find out about them! but nonthing that teaches me!

All i know is it turns o2 into o3.

Thanks in Advance,
Ben

Hi ben


ozone is a normal molecule of free o2 that has two o2 atoms, the ozone generator ( which is like a large air pump) bonds a third o2 atom to it making three.
This make the the o2 molecule unstable and incline to passing the extra o2 atom over, which makes it a powerful oxidiser of organic material.

It simply burns organics up on contact, the problem with it, is it is also harmful to your fish so it is best done in a sump away from the tank, so the water can be run through carbon to remove any traces of ozone before it reaches the tank.


Ozone is a favorite of the marine aquarists how use in conjunction with a protein skimmer in a sump.

regards

Simon.

Hi ben,

If you don't you a redox electrode to stear the redox potential, it is very dangerous to use, as active ozone will damage the gills and the skin of the fish.

Hi Ben :welcome:

For the reasons covered... Ozone is usually not suggestied in a freshwater setup... but you take the precautions noted and also.... make sure to vent the O3 away from your upstairs rooms... it could be safe.... but usually... ( due to the lack of ability of fresh water to maintain the fine, massive numbers of air bubbles in a foam fractionator [ protein skimmer ] the O3 tends NOT to get fully removed before contacting the fish ). All this is why "UV" is more commonly used in freshwater setups than O3.
Regards,
