Ozone!

Welcome to Spring.  As the temperature almost reaches 100 F here in Phoenix we guarantee it will be across the country very soon.

WHAT IS NEW WITH OZONE LATELY? 

We have been keeping busy with continually evolving projects into the ozone world.  We shipped ozone and complete facility control panels down to Australia, equipment to Germany, China, Guatemala, and throughout the U.S!

Tradeshow:

OWS attended and offered ozone support with hands on workshops, classroom training sessions, and plenty of fun at the AALSO – Aquarium Show in St. Louis recently.

Fun had by all… OWS didn’t sponsor this although should have – always next year!

St. Louis Zoo OWS Air Compressor skid in action.  Not bad for running the past 3 years!

And yes, Mark Fisher did find the beer!  OWS Ozone Destruct as well!

Mark doing hands on ozone training… Great turnout!

New Equipment Start Ups:

Other exciting news… I was able to visit Southern China recently to start up a couple ozone skids we shipped over.  Always great seeing new parts of the world and making new friends:

For those of you who have not been to China… please DO So!  Amazing country even if I get lost trying to figure out the train station and which train I want and where to go!  Actually ease of movement there is incredibly easy and fun.

Dolphin Encounter:

Nader and his family recently spent some time making new friends.

Used Equipment Available:

One of our good customers is in no further need of their dual Wedeco PDS-500 ozone units.  Rating on these is 300 lbs/day @ 12% wt.

What is new with ozone lately? 

First off… I am proud to say it is my 15th year working at OWS!  I started back in 2002 on January 1st.  15 years later I got on my bike and peddled to work.  20 Miles roundtrip… uphill both ways…no snow although was cold… like 60 F!

Other great news… we have expanded and moved into a new building in Sunnyvale.  The facility is over 4000 square feet and doubles our prior facility.  OWS now resides in nearly 30,000 square feet of office space.  We have also added a couple new employees the end of last year (Welcome Scott and Tim!).

3350 Scott Boulevard # 52, Santa Clara, CA! OWS new Facility.

OWS has much in store this year for ozone.  We have projects throughout the US as well as International projects that will be started up this year.  Australia, Indonesia, Germany, China, and of course our continued growth here in the U.S!  Stay tuned for additional news on these once started.

We have expanded our abilities with our UL control shop and offering complete control systems for a variety of different industries.  It is exciting to see the quality and desire for continued growth allowing this to grow for OWS!

Santa did find us late last year and we  celbrated with a Holiday Party in late December.  We had families, food, and many festivites for all…  Thank you all for coming.  Thank everyone for the St. Mary’s Food Bank Food Drive as well.  OWS was able to fill up multiple boxes and contribute these to this charity.

Below is our wonderful team of people making this great for you!

jan1-4

Upcoming exciting news from OWS is our new ozone generator series.  We will be announcing this with a new product bulletin that will describe all the many things we have done to improve our product offering.  Stay tuned for this!  While most ozone suppliers remove many of the bells and whistles we only offer ours with everything.  Like it was 20 years ago.

Thank you all for a wonderful 2016.  We are excited about 2017 and greatly appreciate your loyalty and commitment to our family.  We consider you one of us.

What is new with ozone lately?

The past couple of months I have been into China and Southern Asia. Some of the ozone I have come across is shown below. Prices were in Hong Kong Dollars and they range from $ 75 USD to $ 130 USD. They are not sold as “ozone generators” although sold as water purifiers.

Ozone sink tap units.

Ozone sink tap units.

We do have these here in the US although they are difficult to sell as ozone unit as well. They are pretty incredible in that they don’t require power. They simply use the water pressure to drive a small motor and then make ozone gas. This gas is drawn in from an injector integral to the faucet. A flip of the level allows tap water or ozone water selection. Clever. We actually worked with the patent holder on these to develop a larger unit for smaller hot tubs and pools. No electricity required although water pressure.

This unit offers various levels of alkaline water for drinking, rice cooking, new user, etc.

The larger market I found in Asia has been the Alkaline Water Market. The price tag on this is $ 550 USD.

Recent events at OWS include out soon to be family Christmas party. We also did an outing at Top Golf in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Fun was had by everyone who attended.

And yes… three were winners…

Other fun stuff some of use were able to do was a recent trip into China. Nader and I were able to take a hike on the island of Lantau (Hong Kong). A strenuous 2 hour hike up the mountain to the Budha.

John and Nader make it to the Buddha!

We continue to be busy with ozone movement. The end of the year seems to be getting busy and we expect 2017 to be even busier. We appreciate all of our customers and look forward to helping with any ozone projects that come about.

Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.
