Ozone treatment is an eco-friendly and cost-effective industrial-produce-processing technology. The method has successfully been used for the milk residue removal and biofilm-forming bacteria from inox surfaces and in milk processing tools that help to ensure milk quality, a cleaner environment and products made from it that are safe and up to standards. In dairy production facilities, Ozone applications in dairy industry in many stages to clean the environment and disinfect products with high treatment efficiency.

Drinking water for cows is also of interest. Because it is one of the factors that determine the quality of cow’s milk output. Water sources can be mining from many different sources such as well water, river water, tap water, etc. These waters may have been purified or not, but most of them contain bacteria, viruses, even they contain some heavy metals such as iron, manganese or some substances that cause odors. To remove these substances, people often use industrial ozone machines.

Limit the risk of cows getting the disease, cows often live in a humid environment with many bacteria. When living in this area for a long time, harmful bacteria will cause many dangerous diseases for cows, in which, a common disease is a lameness. Therefore, people often put ozonated water in cow stables to kill bacteria and prevent diseases. Compared with conventional methods such as the use of copper sulfate, this solution brings high efficiency but reduces a significant amount of costs.

Using ozone to cleaning tools, Ozone is not only used to care for cows, disinfect the living environment for their growth, prevent possible diseases, but people can also use ozone machines to disinfect milk containers, milking tools, people also use ozone to disinfect the storage environment, helping the amount of milk to be clean and preserved for longer.

It can be seen that the ozone machine is very useful for the dairy production industry. From breeding to processing and storage, ozone helps to disinfect effectively, ensuring the produced milk is safe for users. With these outstanding advantages, ozone technology promises to develop further in the future, contributing to improving people’s lives as well as production efficiency.

Ozone Systems Used In Dairy Processing:

Implementation of good hygienic practices on dairy farms is a prerequisite for the production of high-quality and microbiologically safe raw milk. Given that ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent active against a wide range of micro-organisms, including viruses, bacteria, yeasts, molds and protozoa.

The pipelines, which carry the milk from individual milking stations to the bulk tank, have to be cleaned after every milking. Hot water with chemicals is generally used in the cleaning and disinfection processes consuming a large amount of energy and chemicals. The use of ozone can considerably lower chemical costs and completely eliminate hot water costs on dairy farms. Ozone Solution's, Dualzone System delivers ozonated water, water containing ozone at a preferable level of 0.04–1.2 ppm, is used to clean and disinfect dairy animals, milking equipment and various surfaces in dairy settings. If the hind legs, udder and teats of cows are thoroughly washed off with ozonated water prior to milking, many hygienic problems may easily be prevented.

Ozone has even been successfully used to treat bovine mastitis, the costliest and most common disease in dairy production. When 6–30 mg of ozone was infused into each inflamed udder quarter of cows with acute clinical mastitis, 60% of sick animals completely recovered without administration of antibiotics. In these cases, the efficacy of ozone therapy was identical to that of an antibiotic treatment. Ozone therapy is a safe, effective and inexpensive method of curing mastitis without leaving antibiotic residues in raw milk. Another use of ozone on dairy farms is its addition, at very low concentrations, to the air in the barn in order to destroy airborne pathogens and eliminate manure smell in the barn.
