This paper presents the water ozonization process evaluation in
bubble columns considering mass transfer parameters and the effect
of chemical reaction on the mass transfer rate, which was obtained
for different water qualities. Determination of Hatta number
confirmed that the water ozonization process develop in the liquid
bulk, corresponding to very slow kinetic regime, then bubble
column is advisable to obtain a high water quality in all
practical cases considered. Water treatment systems are in service
in several plants at different operating conditions.
