Nebraska Patent of the Month – June 2023
Aqueous ozone (O3) has become an increasingly popular water treatment approach. This ozone is utilized in applications to maintain a specific level of water quality in facilities like hospitals, restaurants, and even homes. The specific water quality will depend on the facility and therefore the ozone concentration does as well. This specificity often results in the need for multiple production lines to build in redundancy and security.
CleanCore Solutions, Inc. is set on developing the technology needed to achieve a smarter clean – naturally. Their newly patented technology can replace multiple traditional chemical cleaners, expensive maintenance costs, and ongoing chemical fees. The device uses water and naturally occurring ozone to achieve improved specificity by controlling concentration, pressure, and flow rate.
The apparatus consists of two production lines, each of which is capable of generating aqueous ozone independently, with different ozone concentrations tailored to specific applications. The innovative flow switch technology incorporated into the apparatus ensures seamless transitions between the two production lines.
At the heart of the apparatus are the ozone generators, responsible for producing ozone when fluid flows through the system. A fitting couples the generated ozone with the fluid, resulting in the generation of aqueous ozone.
CleanCore understands that diverse applications demand variable ozone concentrations and temperatures. Therefore, the apparatus allows for adjustable orifices, enabling users to modify the ozone concentration of the aqueous ozone without requiring multiple lines or devices.
To ensure stability and reliability, both production lines are equipped with air dryers that provide the ozone generators with a consistent supply of ambient air. This feature guarantees optimal performance and consistent ozone generation.
Are you developing new technology for an existing application? Did you know your development work could be eligible for the R&D Tax Credit and you can receive up to 14% back on your expenses? Even if your development isn’t successful your work may still qualify for R&D credits (i.e. you don’t need to have a patent to qualify).
