Advanced Oxidation Process Power for Hot Tubs
DEL AOP® is dramatically more powerful than Chlorine and other sanitizers, and even more powerful than Ozone alone. In AOP systems, the highly unstable hydroxyl free radicals react with dissolved waterborne contaminants in a series of strong oxidation reactions. This process happens almost instantaneously.
AOP systems also destroy and prevent chloramines—formed when chlorine reacts with sweat or urine—that cause unpleasant smells, eye, and skin irritations which dramatically increases water clarity and improves the hot tub experience.
Ozone and UV-C work together to create powerful Hydroxyl Radicals
Systems for portable hot tubs
DEL products use modern corona discharge cells that are nearly bulletproof, with an extremely long life. DEL products for spas and swim spas are compact, simple to install and easy to service.
AOP is the Advanced Oxidation Process. When germicidal UV light (UV-C) and ozone react the result is the production of hydroxyl radicals. This reaction is known as Advanced Oxidation Process, or AOP. Hydroxyl radicals (•OH) are the most powerful oxidation agents available, quickly destroying bacteria, viruses, pathogens and other contaminants that occur in the water. Hydroxyl radicals also destroy chlorine resistant microorganisms, such as Cryptosporidium Parvum, Giardia and E.Coli.
AOP is the most powerful advanced sanitizer. It has a higher Oxidation Potential than any other residential pool oxidizer available. It’s more than double the power of common water treatments like chlorine. In fact, AOP is even more powerful than Ozone.
The Hydroxyl radicals destroy harmful viruses, bacteria, and many other types of organic and inorganic contaminants found in spa water.
Chloramines cause irritation and the classic “pool smell”. AOP destroys sweat and urine that form chloramines.
The units are self-contained, automatically generating ozone and UV-C. No external controllers required.
The Del AOP Spa design, originally the Aquanova by ASO, took the industry by storm with it’s innovative design.
