Diamox is a compact and easy-to-implement electrochemical advanced oxidation reactor that provides on-site wastewater treatment systems with game-changing efficiency and simplicity.
DIAMOX: THE BREAKTHROUGH THAT MAKES ELECTROCHEMICAL ADVANCED OXIDATION PROCESS (EAOP) SYSTEMS EFFECTIVE, RELIABLE AND ECONOMICAL
Conventional treatments use aerobic biological processes to digest contaminates dissolved in waste water. Highly contaminated effluent streams pose a challenge for these processes since the dissolved species can be resistant to oxidation (recalcitrant), and can be toxic to the microbial colonies in a bio-digesting plant.
PERFECTING A TECHNOLOGY THAT TRANSFORMS WASTEWATER TREATMENT
ENABLING EFFICIENT ELECTROCHEMICAL ADVANCED OXIDATION PROCESSES
Diamox is a game changing electrochemical cell for Electrochemical Advanced Oxidation Process (EAOP) water treatment technology since it is able to operate at extremely high current density, with 100% of the hydroxyl radicals generated available for useful oxidation work.
EFFECTIVE – capable of full mineralization of dissolved organic compounds
RELIABLE – using Element Six BDD electrodes that have a field lifetime measurable in years
FLEXIBLE – effective with most types of effluent streams with dissolved contaminates
SAFE – operates at low temperature and pressure without the addition of hazardous chemicals
HOW DIAMOX FITS INTO EAOP TREATMENT PLANTS
EAOPs are compact and simple water treatment systems.
The effluent is held in a process tank and then pumped through the Diamox cell. The oxidation process is a batch process with the dissolved effluents mineralized at the surface of the anode electrode and the process controlled by the power applied to the electrochemical process.
BIPOLAR ELECTROCHEMICAL CELLS
Diamox uses BDD for the anode and the cathode. The designed allows for switching the polarity of electrodes to prevent fouling, enabling operation in highly contaminated environments.
Diamox diamond electrode cells use proprietary solid boron doped diamond (BDD)
Diamox electrochemical cells enable manufacturers of on-site wastewater treatment systems to design solutions that:
Effectively treat effluents that are difficult or impossible to treat by conventional means, by fully mineralizing dissolved organic compounds
Allow discharge of treated water directly from site
Are cost effective and simple to operate and maintain
Avoid the need to use UV and chemicals
Meet the needs of key industries such as chemical, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, textiles and environmental water management
