Operating Cost of Ozone

Compare the operating cost of ozone vs. bleach and peracetic acid.

Note: For pathogen destruction, 2 ppm ozone is equivalent to 160 ppm bleach, which is also equivalent to 100 ppm PAA.

Operational Parameters

  • Run Time: 8 hours/day
  • Operating Days/Week: 5
  • Water Consumption Flow Rate: 4.67
  • Bleach (12% NaOH) Cost: $10/gallon
  • Peracetic Acid (PAA) Cost: $10/gallon
  • Target Bleach Concentration: 160 ppm
  • Target PAA Concentration: 100 ppm
  • Target Ozone Concentration: 2 ppm
