ENGINEERING 471: Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs), Ozone, and U.V. Systems

Learning Objectives

  • Explain ozone, U.V. sterilization, and Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs).
  • List code and regulatory agency considerations.
  • Calculate the appropriate size for ozone generators and the associated equipment such as pumps, injectors, contact tanks, and other items.
  • Calculate the appropriate size for U.V. sterilizers to be effective at chloramine reduction without chlorine destruction.


This program approaches Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) from the perspective of an environmental engineer in the water purification industry. Reduction of chlorine, acid, other chemicals, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), and maintenance using ozone, U.V. sterilization, or a combination of both is a recipe for truly healthy water. The instructor has been using these technologies for over 20 years and will share sizing tools to guide appropriate equipment selection.
