Scavenger Vessels Environmental Solutions. The contamination of our waterways by biological and chemical waste, floating debris and runoff is a growing concern worldwide. As a result of human activity, large amounts of nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, RAW SEWAGE and hydrocarbons are introduced into the water. These, in turn, allow harmful bacteria like E.coli, viruses, algae and insects to breed.
The Scavenger2000™ is the most effective pollution control and water maintenance vessel available in the WORLD today. It has been designed by a United States of America company called Water Management Technologies to clean and rejuvenate waterways such as lakes, river, harbors, bays and industrial waste water in order to promote HEALTHY and SAFE environments.
The key to the The Scavengervessel is an advanced Patented Oxy-Plus™ water decontamination system that treats and revitalizes water by directly aerating the water with a combination of ozone and oxygen. When oxygen is injected into polluted water, the enrichment contributes directly to reducing contaminants suspended in the water. With the addition of ozone to the aeration process a very powerful yet environmentally SAFE disinfection occurs in the body of water being treated by the Scavengervessel.
Ozone has been applied with great success in municipal sewer treatment facilities worldwide because of its ability to disinfect water without leaving harmful by-products left by chlorine. In fact, ozone has been found to be more than 100 times more powerful than chlorine in destroying E.coli bacteria.
As water enters through the bow of the vessel, the Oxy-Plus™ system generates ozone and oxygen and injects it into the water. The ozones’s life expectancy varies between a few seconds to a few minutes. The ozone then converts into oxygen. This process supports Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), breaks down substances so they become digestible to bacteria, and supports the aerobic oxidation of toxic nitrogen compounds. By altering the surface charge, ozone enables suspended particles to coagulate, therefore improving water clarity. In addition ozone effectively oxidizes some pesticides and some algae, eliminates odor and polluting chemicals. Lastly, it improves the dissolved oxygen (D.O.) content of the water which has a rejuvenating effect.
