WEDECO PRO3MIX: The new AOP solution
Product Announcement from WEDECO, a Xylem brand
Promix is an intelligent ozone introduction and reaction system enabling ozone treatment in an elegant, slender and intelligent design even in cases of high level bromide in source water.
The Challenge: bromide
Some water utilities worldwide have to deal with high levels of bromide in their water sources. The ozone oxidation (e.g. AOP treatment) of affected drinking water sources with ozone lead to Bromate formation in the product water. Bromate in drinking water is undesirable as it‘s a suspected human carcinogen.
The Solution: PROMIX
Promix is an innovative new product that is allowing to use ozone in a novel way and solves this problem. The new introduction system keeps Bromate formation under control whilst treating unwanted contaminants.
In drinking water treatment, ozone oxidation is typically one of the most popular alternatives to chlorination as it does not usually produce THMs or other chlorinated by-products. Water utilities worldwide might have to deal, regionally, with high levels of bromide in their water sources (i.e treatment of surface waters). However, water sources with elevated Bromide levels can lead to undesired Bromate formation in the product water. Bromate in drinking water is regulated by the WHO (less than 10 μg/l).
