AIM Series Applications

The AIM series is designed to be effective in the water treatment and Aquaculture treatment systems up to 100 GPM.  AIM ozone generators work in conjunction with other components to provide oxidation treatment to pressurized water treatment flows, non-pressurized water storage tanks and oxidizing filtration system.

Below are the application systems best suited for the AIM products.

Point of Entry (POE) Filtration System

POE Injection – The POE injection system is designed to oxidize water as it’s pumped from the well into the house or building. The pressure switch, while energizing the pump will power the AIM unit as the venturi draws the ozone into the water stream. Filtration from an EOG filter or other standard filtration is then used to remove the oxidized particles of Iron, Manganese or Sulfur.

In some cases, a contact tank may be used to extend the oxidation time and improve the C/T (Concentration / Contact Time) value of the treatment train.

This technology as a Pre-treatment to an AIO-EOG filtration system will treat copious amounts Iron, Manganese and Sulfur in water flows up to 50 GPM.

The POE system requires added components such as:

  1. Venturi With Bypass
  2. Air Drier or Oxygen concentrator
  3. Contact tank (Optional)
  4. Filter

Tank Oxidizing and Sanitizing System

The AIM tank sanitizing system can be configured in two ways. The first is to create a recirculation flow from the bottom of the tank to the center top and back down to the bottom. Fig #3.

The second method is to use an air pump to bubble diffuse the ozone to the bottom of the tank which will create a counter flow from the outer walls of the tank to the center Fig. #4. Each application is dependent on the water treatment application that it is joined with.

Recirculating Tank Treatment System – This system is used in process’s that require the water to stay in motion. The recirculation pump will take the water from the bottom of the tank and recirculate through the building or process. The ozone is added when the water is returned to the tank for storage. Tank volumes of 1,000 -25,000 gallons are within the treatment limit of this line.

Typical Uses:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Bottled water
  • Rainwater collection
  • Aquaculture
  • Chemical plants

Components Needed:

  • Air drier or oxygen concentrator
  • Venturi w/ bypass
  • Recirculation pump (If not already present)

Bubble Diffusing Tank Treatment – Storage tanks that use this technology have no need for treatment but would like to keep the tank fresh and clean while storing it for use. The principal is that by pumping ozone to the bottom center of the storage tank the rising bubbles oxidize the water within the ozone column while the water from the tank recirculates downward and toward the center of the tank. Recirculation is made possible by surface tension around the ozone bubbles that carries the water in the center to the top. Calculations for the right sized AIM unit are based on the tank size which can be from 200 – 25,000 gallons.

Typical Uses:

  • RO Storage tanks
  • Rainwater storage tanks
  • Industrial pure water storage
  • Aquaculture
  • Bottled water storage.

Components Needed:

  • Air drier or oxygen concentrator
  • Ozone resistant air pump
