OZONATOR Industries Ltd.
Peter Klaptchuk is President of OZONATOR Industries, located in Regina, Saskatchewan - Canada which specializes in the research, design and development of ozone based technologies for both sterilization and sanitation.
Klaptchuk, who has been in the bio-hazardous waste business for more than 30 years is the inventor and developer of the OZONATOR NG-1000 technology for a cleaner, safer environment.
The OZONATOR NG-1000 is certified 6 log 10 reduction for medical and bio-hazard waste which includes - anatomical and pathological waste.
The OZONATOR NG-1000 technology can be used effectively with the following types of waste:
• Cultures and stocks of infectious agents and associated biological waste
• Liquid human and animal waste, including blood and blood products and body fluids
• Pathological Waste
• Contaminated waste from animals
• General bio-hazardous waste
• General waste (i.e. hospital ward or kitchen waste, documents etc.)
• Quarantined waste – airports, border protection, cruise ships, military , correctional facilities and other secure operations.
The OZONATOR NG-1000 is a cost-effective, zero emission, energy-efficient, environmentally friendly and sustainable treatment technology for medical and other bio-hazardous waste, from hospitals, clinics, laboratories, research facilities, remote communities, military operations, correctional facilities, industrial and commercial operations, border protection and quarantine waste from airports and sea ports (cruise ships and vessels).
The OZONATOR NG-1000 medical and biohazard waste treatment technology uses only a small amount of electrical energy (less than 8 kWh per cycle), a small amount of water (2 liters per hour) and compressed air to safely sterilize the waste to 99.9999 % reduction (6 log 10).
The OZONATOR NG-1000 technology shreds the waste in a closed system to reduce its volume and the shredded waste is exposed to a high concentration of ozone which is produced on board the NG-1000 from ambient air. A small amount of water (one half liter) is injected into the treatment chamber to provide a relative humidity of greater than 75 % to ensure optimal exposure of the waste to the ozone. With an exposure time of less than fifteen minutes, the waste is sterilized and the treated waste is hydraulically compacted into the transport container where any residual ozone continues to degrade latex and other materials.
The treatment process is completed at room temperature without heat, steam or chemicals and without any by-products. Any residual ozone is converted back to oxygen, resulting in zero emissions.
The OZONATOR NG-1000, which does not require specialized training or technical qualifications and staff can be trained to operate the unit in less than 60 minutes, is capable of sterilizing 200 kilograms or 27 cubic feet of bio-hazardous waste in each 15 minute cycle. Operating at four (4) cycles per hour, the capacity is up to 800 kg per hour of treated waste.
The OZONATOR NG-1000 is designed to operate 24 hours per day – seven days per week and has a service life of twenty plus years. The OZONATOR has a very low life-cycle cost on both operation and maintenance.
The NG-1000 can replace incineration, autoclave or any other technologies requiring heat, pressure or potentially harmful chemicals. It can be used as an onsite solution or as part of a commercial service or even a regional solution for generators of bio-hazardous and regulated medical waste.
The treated waste is ready for landfill and is ideal for daily cover or the sterilized waste can be used as fuel for waste-to-energy facilities. (36.4 MJ/kg)
The entire process is safe, clean and economical to operate and maintain resulting in a very low life-cycle cost for our clients.
