Advantages of the pulsed corona discharge water treatment method
- Effective energy consumption
Energy efficiency of pollutants oxidation in pulsed corona discharge treatment of water exceeds the one of conventional
ozonation for at least three times.
- Simplicity and high reliability of equipment
Electric discharge device is simple and needs no additional gas preparation, such as dust removal, cooling and drying.
The pulse generator, designed with the use of modern semiconductor appliances and magnetic switches, is highly reliable
and does not require expensive servicing.
- Minimum chemical requirement: no chemicals are required except oxygen for improved
oxidation efficiency; enrichment with oxygen is optional, the method works with air effectively enough.
Active oxidizers – radicals, atomic oxygen, ozone - are produced "in situ" by pulsed corona discharge from oxygen and
Wide range of oxidizable substances: aromatic compounds, oil products, organic acids, amines, natural organic
matter, pesticides etc. Some substances, resistant towards conventional treatment with ozone, are susceptible to
oxidation with pulsed corona discharge.
