BAKERSFIELD, CA, Feb. 22, 2010 -- The Mazzei Injector Company, LLC has announced that its unique Pipeline Flash Reactor™ for ozone contacting was selected and installed by the Castaic Lake Water Agency. The water agency's facilities include the Earl Schmidt Filtration Plant and the Rio Vista Water Treatment Plant. The plants treat Castaic Lake water supplied from the California State Water Project. Both plants recently underwent major expansion to increase capacity.

As part of the expansion of the Rio Vista Plant an alternative filtration treatment process was converted to an ozone contactor. The Mazzei Flash Reactor was selected for the ozone sidestream injection because of its high efficiency and small footprint.

The 102" Pipeline Flash Reactor™ uses application specific Mazzei nozzles to introduce the water/ozone sidestream flow back into the main water flow at high velocities. This causes a section of the system to be a turbulent mixing chamber without the pressure loss of conventional mixing systems. Ozone mass transfer occurs within a few seconds and thoroughly mixes with the main pipe flow.

Mazzei President Bill Van Skike stated, "Mazzei technologies are well-known in the municipal water industry for delivering very efficient ozone contacting systems with small footprint designs. We are pleased that this innovative product was selected for the Castaic project. We are seeing more and more of these types of applications for our Pipeline Flash Reactor™."
