NOTE: 20 drops of AOP were added to 20 liters of water.

Conclusions:

  • In this fourth assay we can demonstrat that disinfection with AOP yields better results in comparison to sodium hypochlorite.
  • The coliform levels reached with the liquid ozone are under¬† <10 Ufc/gr , while with sodium hypochlorite there is still a coliform load.
  • Our main problem in this test is the presence of aerobic mesophilic bacteria, in all stages analyzed in this sampling. However, with AOP and sodium hypochlorite we can reduce the presence of this bacteria at very low levels, under current sanitary standards. What is important here is to control the times of exposure of the product to the disinfectant to guarantee an effective elimination of microorganisms.
  • Regarding residual effects, we can observe, according to the attached table, that the concentration of AOP stays high after a time of use of 15 minutes,¬† so that the consumption of this product would be less in comparison to the sodium hypochlorite, the concentration of which, after 15 minutes of use, leads its residual effects to almost disappear in the disinfectant solution due to the cloudiness of the disinfection water.
