MKS Introduces LIQUOZON® Ultra Ozone Sanitation System
A safe, efficient alternative for pharmaceutical applications
Andover, MA, October 8, 2009 - MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has introduced the LIQUOZON® Ultra, an Ozone sanitization system for pharmaceutical and high purity water systems. LIQUOZON® Ultra provides a clean, safe and efficient water loop sanitization alternative to heat and chemicals. The fully integrated LIQUOZON® Ultra is a turn-key automated ozone injection system that generates ozone, dissolves it into water and delivers degassed and bubble-free ozone-enriched water, providing a cost-effective system sanitization method.
The compact, skid-mounted LIQUOZON® Ultra can handle water flows of 10 to 30 gpm and higher with minimal pressure drop. The system is equipped with flow rate and ozone concentration controllers, ozone safety monitors, a control panel with a recorder to monitor quality, with an optional TOC meter. Safety features include alarm signals for high/low concentration, and interlocked ozone leakage detector. Minimum connections allow for fast and easy installation.
The LIQUOZON® Ultra system generates ozone using silent discharge MKS ozone generators and multi-point ozone measurement. It injects the ozone into DI water then degasses the ozone-enriched water and delivers it to the storage tank and delivery loop. UV light can be used to photo-dissociate ozone to an undetectable level in water at the beginning of the loop. Product water can be used immediately after the UV destruct.
