Mazzei Injector will exhibit a clear plastic model of their efficiency injectors that demonstrates the high mass transfer or dissolution rates possible when they are used for aeration or ozone gas injection.
The model shows the aggressive mixing action taking place as air or gases are injected into its vacuum environment. This action creates small “micro bubbles” that greatly increase the surface area exposed to the treated water and optimize the mass transfer or dissolution rate.
Recent independent tests have documented mass transfer rates with ozone gas as high as 99+%.
Low Pressure RO System
A low pressure reverse osmosis (RO) system from KISS is designed for use with line pressure as low as 10 psi and includes a cut off to protect the pump if the pressure falls below that level.
