Overview

What is HiPOx – Advanced Oxidation Process for Water Treatment

HiPOx is a patented, continuous, in-line, plug-flow, advanced oxidation process for water treatment (AOP) with innovative injection and mixing techniques that utilizes hydrogen peroxide and ozone to efficiently create hydroxyl radicals (OH•) that destroy organic compounds while minimizing bromate formation

HiPOx Chemistry

Generation of Hydroxyl Radicals

2 O3 + H2O2  arrow-cropped 2 OH + 3 O2

Reaction is diffusion-limited, but fast with HiPOx

Destruction of Organic Compounds

Advanced Oxidation Process for Water Treatment Organic Compounds Destruction

Hydroxyl Radical (OH•) is strongest oxidant used in water treatment

Hydroxyl Radical is non-selective and reacts fast with many compounds
