Chemical Technology, Control and Management


Theoretical estimates were made and significant factors of dissolution of ozone-containing gases in water during bubbling in tanks were determined. The expediency of using microbubbles for more efficient saturation of water and aqueous solutions with ozone and generation of ozone with maximum concentration is shown. It is shown that when bubbling gas in water, including ozone-containing gas, the most important indicator is the volume gas content, which determines the ratio of the volume of the gas phase to the volume of the gas-liquid mixture in the contact apparatus. In the presence of a set of bubbles in the water, the volume of the gas-liquid mixture can be defined as the sum of the volumes of the liquid and gas phases. To assess the saturation of water and aqueous solutions with ozone during bubbling with ozone-containing gases, it is necessary to determine the main factors affecting the concentration of ozone in water. When using an ozone generator, its performance and maximum ozone concentration are important parameters, which depend on the technical parameters and design features of the ozone generator.
