THE OXION OZONE SYSTEM FOR DRIP IRRIGATION
OZONE FOR CLEANER LINES 

Oxion, Inc. has the patented process covering the ionization of air and admixing that ionized air into irrigation water. One of the products of ionization is ozone. Ozone (O3) is three atoms of oxygen weakly bonded together. Ozone reacts rapidly with any organic matter such as iron bacteria, fungi, and algae.  Most of the remaining oxygen becomes stable dissolved oxygen in water. Ozone is a cost effective alternative for chlorine and other chemicals used to keep drip lines clean. 

Oxion Ozone Advantages 

bullet

Ozone is an effective aerobic antagonist for algae and iron bacteria. 

bullet

Ozone oxidizes several times faster than chlorine. 

bullet

When ozone decomposes, it leaves no harmful byproducts. 

bullet

Ozone is generated onsite and safe no dangerous chemicals that workers must interact with and manage. 

bullet

The Oxion system will maintain a constant ozone level in your irrigation water throughout your entire irrigation system. 

bullet

Ozone is very effective in the removal of biofilm inside your lines. The result will be cleaner lines both from biological and mineral sources.

OXYGEN TO YOUR ROOTS 

From an agronomic viewpoint, the main advantage of admixing Oxion air is the increase in dissolved oxygen in irrigation water. Plant root systems need oxygen to carry out respiration.  The Oxion system normally increases dissolved oxygen by 30-45%. The increased dissolved oxygen will improve water penetration. Some growers have eliminated gypsum after installing Oxion machines. The dissolved oxygen will penetrate the soil, liberating tied up nutrients and providing oxygen for a healthy, growing root system. Root pathogens such as pythium and phytophera have been reduced through the use of the Oxion system. 

Increased Dissolved Oxygen Advantages 

bullet

Better root growth increased respiration and nutrient 
availability.

bullet

Greater resistance to anaerobic diseases such as 
pythium and phytophera.

bullet

Increased water penetration.
