OZONE IN AQUACULTURE
Ozone is an essential part of a life-support filtration system for aquaculture facilities. Ozone’s oxidizing capability, short residual times and minimal by-products makes it ideal for disinfection and water purification in aquaculture processes. The application of ozone in the water filtration system serves as a means for disinfection, organic breakdown, color removal and the reduction of nitrogen by oxidation (i.e. ammonia and nitrite ions). Oxygen, necessary for the fish in grow out tanks, is provided as part of the injection of oxygen/ozone gas mixture. Ozone’s fast reactivity, oxidative strength, disinfection power and lack of harmful oxidation by-products plays an important role in life support systems for the aquaculture industry.

SUPERIOR FRESH FISH HATCHERY
“My experience with the Pinnacle Ozone has been nothing but positive. Pinnacle installed their Peak 1.5 Kg/hr ozone generator at our Phase I Fish House over 3 years ago. Low-dose ozonation of our RAS flows and disinfection of connecting flows has been essential to maintain both pristine water quality and biosecurity in our salmon and leafy green producing aquaponic systems. We found that a single Pinnacle ozone generation system provides reliable ozone production and delivery to multiple points of use with minimal maintenance costs. Pinnacle’s modular technology along with their strong system integration expertise clearly separates them from the rest of the pack. We’re so pleased with the Pinnacle product and the value it brings to our operation that we have a much larger Pinnacle Summit Ozone Generator and distribution control system arriving soon for our Phase II Fish House Expansion!”

Coleman National Fish Hatchery
In July 2020, the Coleman National Fish Hatchery in Redding, California, installed two 600 ppd Pinnacle Zenith Style Ozone Generators with a total capacity of 1200 ppd. These state-of-the-art ozone generators replaced the existing legacy tube and shell generators, making the Reliable System Operation 26 percent more power-efficient.
