What Is Oxidation-Reduction in Water Treatment?

June 20, 2022

What is oxidation-reduction? Oxidation-reduction is a process that is used to remove impurities from water. This process is also known as redox. Oxidation-reduction reactions are chemical reactions that involve the transfer of electrons between molecules. In an oxidation reaction, one molecule loses electrons and is oxidized, while another molecule gains electrons and is reduced in a reduction reaction. How Is Oxidation-Reduction Used in Water Treatment? Oxidation-reduction in water treatment removes dissolved minerals, such as iron and manganese, from water. This process can also remove organic matter, such as bacteria, from water. Oxidation-reduction is usually accomplished by adding chemicals, such as... View Article

The Purpose of Oxidation Reduction Treatments

November 4, 2021

Water filtration and treatment has come a long way in the past few decades. New solutions are being introduced that are more effective than ever at creating pure, high-quality water. Oxidation reduction, also referred to as redox, is one of the key advancements in the treatment of water. Why is it so important? This method serves several purposes that are key to water treatment: Reduces contaminants naturally: Oxidation reduction is a natural electrochemical process that can be used to absorb and remove contaminants from water. Rather than introduce new potentially hazardous substances to the water system, this method uses naturally... View Article

What is Reduction Oxidation and What Are its Benefits? Info About Water Filtration in Scottsdale, AZ

May 2, 2019

An oxidation-reduction reaction, which can also be referred to as reduction oxidation, is a type of chemical reaction in which one or more electrons get transferred from one compound or molecule to another. The substance that loses the electrons is then oxidized and will usually be a reducing agent, while the species that gains the electrons is reduced, and is usually the oxidizing agent. Some common examples of these reactions include respiration, combustion, corrosion and photosynthesis. These actions happen constantly in the cells of living things and during common chemical reactions. Let’s take a closer look at some examples. Reduction... View Article

What Is Reduction Oxidation?

December 5, 2018

The reduction-oxidation reaction (also written as the oxidation-reduction reaction) is a type of chemical reaction in which the oxidation number of involved chemical species changes. This is a very broad term that covers a wide variety of processes, but some of the most common examples of these reactions include fire, the rusting of metal, photosynthesis, respiration and the browning of fruits. This type of process can also be an important part of water filtration in Scottsdale, AZ. Many processes of reduction oxidation in Scottsdale, AZ involve the transfer of electrons, hydrogen atoms or oxygen atoms. Each of these types of... View Article
