Modular Sanitary Device for Electroproduction of Ozonated Water with Sanitising Properties
With the recent surge in the risk of pathogens and viruses, there has been a strong demand for hygiene-focused products globally. In public health, there is an increasing need to obtain more sterilised water and to create a hygienic environment with sterilised water. Ozone dissolved in water, commonly known as ozonated water, has been used to produce safe drinking water at water purification plants because of ozone's sanitising properties. However, conventional gas dissolution methods have limited their applications because it is difficult to incorporate both safe ozone production and ozone dissolution into water in the same small product.
This technology is a modular sanitary device that is able to electro-produce ozonated water for sanitisation. This device can, on-demand, instantly generate ozonated water via electrolysis. The ability for on-demand generation circumvents the problem where ozonated water loses its sanitising properties over time. Furthermore, this modular device can be easily designed to have variable performance depending on the number of devices connected and the control of current and flow rate. Therefore, the device can be easily designed to be integrated into existing products (e.g., household water purifiers, etc.). Lastly, this compact device that can efficiently generate sterilising ozone water is expected to address dissolution problems in various systems such as public health, medical treatment, etc.
