The AOP system is the next generation of UV treater. Although UV propagates the process the mechanism is entirely different and very much more effective. The AOPs efficiency is due to the production of Hydroxyl Radicals (OH) within its reaction chamber. These highly reactive species oxidise any organic matter present. Figure 1 shows an outline schematic of the process.

Figure 1.

How effective is the AOP Unit?
Hydroxyl Radicals are the second most powerful oxidising agents after fluorine. They display an oxidative strength of more than twice that of chlorine. Hence in the reactor viruses, bacteria and other pathogens are eradicated faster and more effectively than any other system available today.

Chemistry and Mechanism

The Titanium AOP System differs from standard UV treatment. Unlike UV the Titanium AOP Unit enables both of the following photochemical mechanisms.

  • Photocatalytic reaction at the H2O/TiO2 interface.
  • Production of Hydroxyl Radicals

Technical papers detailing the AOP Chemistry and reaction mechanisms are available on request.

Advantages of Titanium AOP over Current Technology

Advantages over UV treatment

  • Kills all organisms
  • Kills and destroys organisms not just deactivates reproduction
  • Destroy all by-products including bio-toxins, endo-toxins and pyrogens
  • Oxidises pollutants

Advantages over other treatments

  • Chemical free
  • No toxicity issues
  • Non Corrosive by products
  • Minimal running and maintenance costs
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Catalytic process so no wear and tear on unit
  • Prevents and eliminates biofilms
  • Removes the need for chemical biocides
  • Cost effective, often with less than one year payback.

Technical papers including AOP chemistry are available from Advanced Hydro Ltd.In addition Case Study data and formal laboratory test results are also available on request.

The AOP Unit is available in a range of flow rates from 1 to 100 m3/hr.

 As a company we positively encourage future customers to visit an AOP installation and talk to existing Clients.Should you wish to view an AOP in operation please contact our Sales Office who will be happy to arrange a visit.
