Many years ago AZCO pioneered a complete and fully automatic (ORP controlled) system for the bottling and food processing industry. It has been proven beyond a doubt that only a fully automatic system, with a close loop programmable ORP control, can assure 100% consistency in the water quality. These systems are in operation throughout the world.

The dosage of ozone at the point of filler is very important. If the ozone level is too high, plastic bottles may develop an aftertaste. If the level is too low then it may not be enough to maintain sterility.

Water charged with ozone is also suitable for rinsing bottles, cleaning of the equipment (such as milk processing machines) cleaning of the production facilities. Thanks to AZCO's ozonation systems, harmful chemicals have been eliminated from many food processing facilities. In many kinds of food processing operations chemicals cannot be used at all. system with incorporated ozone provide protection without interfering with the food quality and without leaving any chemical residuals. Residual ozone decomposes quickly back to oxygen.

Examples of the types of AZCO systems that are in use:

1. Single pass water treatment where the water is first distilled or R.O. filtrated. Here ozone is mixed to dissolve to the level needed to maintain sterility of the bottles and caps after filling and sealing. If the bottles retain their seal, the water will maintain its quality even after virtually unlimited storage time. Once our equipment is integrated into the system, these goals are simple and easy to achieve.

2. Multiple pass water treatment where the water source is a well, lake, creek, rainwater or a glacier. Ozone can be used for the following and more.
  • flocculation and high level oxidation followed by filtration
  • final, programmed and precise dosage for maintaining sterility of the water and bottles
  • rinsing systems
