IOA World Congress 2013 – Ozone Solutions Exhibit

Posted by Becky on September 24, 2013 under Conferences/News | Be the First to Comment

Ozone Solutions has had their booth set up for the past 2 days at the IOA World Congress 2013 Exhibition Hall.

Ozone Solutions' booth at the 2013 IOA show.

Ozone Solutions’ booth at the 2013 IOA show.

From 8- 5 each day we’ve been at the booth talking about the products and services that Ozone Solutions offers.  It’s been fun to talk to a variety of people and about the many different ozone applications!  We will be set up on Wednesday yet, so stop by and say hi! :)  Or get some of our yummy Hull’s Foreign Candy Company Bon-Bon Candy!

On Monday night we had the Exhibitor’s Reception with a warm welcome from Oscar Goodman, the previous Mayor Oscar Goodman of Las Vegas.

The International Ozone Association (IOA)  & International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) World Congress & Exhibition 2013 is set to begin this coming Saturday through the following Thursday, September 22-26 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  This year Ozone Solutions will be an exhibitor during the course of the show, which is taking place at The Mirage Hotel & Casino – come and visit us at both #204!Mirage Hotel

We will have information about our products and the services that Ozone Solutions provides.  During the week we will be posting updates, so check back on the journal often to find out what we are doing at the IOA show. For more information about the IOA, visit the following link:

IOA Conference 2012 – Technical Tours

Posted by Jamie Hansmann on October 2, 2012 under Conferences/News | Read the First Comment

For their 2012 Conference and Expo, the International Ozone Association capped the event with technical tours to two facilities in Milwaukee:  The Linnwood Water Treatment Plant and the Discovery World Aquarium.  IOA technical tours are intended to give conference attendees the chance to see how ozone is being used at real-world installations – letting them ask questions, deepen their knowledge and (hopefully) broaden their understanding of ozone use.

This year was no different, providing tours of two excellent facilities with one last, excellent meal thrown in as well!

IOA Technical Tour #1:  Linnwood Water Treatment Plant

The first stop on our Wednesday tour was the Linnwood Water Treatment Plant.  The Linnwood WTP has been in operation since 1939, and has been using ozone as their primary disinfectant since 1998.  At the time, the overall ozone retrofit for Milwaukee’s water treatment plants (Linnwood and Howard Avenue) was the largest in the world at $51 million.  Due to security restrictions, photos are prohibited on tours, but here are some statistics, illustrations and stock images (courtesy of Milwaukee Water Works) that give some more details and history about the Linnwood Water Treatment Plant!

1938 MWW Linnwood WTP

MWW Treatment Process

Milwaukee Water Works Treatment Process

MWW Statistics 2011:

Howard Avenue Treatment Plant rated capacity…………………….. 105 MGD

Linnwood Treatment Plant rated capacity……………………………. 275 MGD
Average Daily Pumpage……………………………… 101 million gallons (MG)
Total Annual Water Sales……………………………….. 32 billion gallons (BG)

Water mains, total length…………………………………………………. 1,956 miles
Water meters in service………………………………………………………… 161,611 Hydrants………………………………………………………………………………… 19,847
Population served…………….. 867,282 in Milwaukee and 15 communities
Area served……………………………………………………………………… 196 sq. mi.
Residential water use…………………………. 46 gallons per person per day
Pumping stations: Two supply stations at the water treatment plants, three major pumping stations, eight repumping stations.

Storage — 40 million gallons in eight tanks
Highest actual pumpage for a 24-hour period was 322 million gallons, on Aug. 2, 1988.

IOA Technical Tour Lunch:  Alterra at the Lake

Lunch for this year’s IOA tour was a stop at Alterra at the Lake, near the shore of Lake Michigan.  The meal included sandwich baskets, chips, and the drink of your choice.  One last, fantastic meal – capping off the trend of great foods during this year’s conference!

Alterra at the Lake - Milwaukee

Alterra at the Lake

IOA Technical Tour #2:  Discovery World Aquarium

The final stop on the technical tour this year was the Discovery World Aquarium, part of the larger Discovery World facility in Milwaukee on the shore of the lake.  Discovery World Aquarium includes both freshwater and saltwater aquariums, where they utilize ozone as a treatment process for water clarity.  The tour provided access and explanation to the workings of the ozone system, how it is used, and the workings of the aquarium as a whole.

Without further ado, here are pictures from the aquarium tour which wraps up Ozone Solutions’ coverage of the 2012 IOA Conference and Expo.  We look forward to attending and supporting the 2013 IOA Conference which is to be held in Las Vegas – see you all there!


IOA Conference 2012 – Awards Banquet

Posted by Joel Leusink on September 26, 2012 under Conferences/News | Be the First to Comment

Last night the International Ozone Association 2012 conference wrapped up with the Awards Banquet.  This is always a great event that allows time to relax and recap a great conference.  The food is always excellent and the atmosphere is enjoyable.

International Ozone Association banquet

Mike Oneby, current International Ozone Association, Pan American Group, president speaking

The banquet was well attended by the conference attendees, speakers, and vendors.  This is a great time to get to know our colleagues in the IOA in a relaxed setting with some great food and humor.

Jeff Neeman, president of the IOA recapped the conference with bit of humor, and showed a presentation of next years planned IOA conference in Las Vegas.  Next year the IOA conference will be a world conference, a joint event with the Pan American, European, and Japan IOA groups.  This will also be a joint event with the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA).

IOA conference award banquet

Mike Oneby presented Paul Overbeck an award for his many years of service to the IOA.  Paul not only served as a volunteer to the IOA for many years, he also served as the executive director.  Paul now works for Mazzei Injector Corporation as the vice president of sales.

This years IOA conference was educational and informative.  Next year in Las Vegas the IOA conference will be a world conference with the American, European, and Japan associations meeting together along with the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA).  For more information on this keep checking the IOA website for updates and details.

IOA Conference 2012 – Day 1 Opening Session

Posted by Jamie Hansmann on under Conferences/News | Be the First to Comment

Day 1 of the IOA 2012 Conference and Expo is in full swing today, the mayor of Milwaukee, Thomas Barrett,  spoke first.  Mayor Barrett stated Milwaukee has a great history with the use of ozone in drinking water.  in the 1990’s a cryptosporidium outbreak sickened many residents of Milwaukee.  Ozone was implemented as a solution in 1997 and has been very successful.  According to Mayor Barrett Milwaukee is very happy with the use of ozone and Milwaukee would be considered a great example of an ozone successes story.

The second speaker of the opening session was Carrie Lewis, the Superintendent of the Milwaukee Water Works.  Carrie came with a wealth of information about ozone and the use of ozone in Milwaukee.  Already in 1871 the water works division was started for fire protection throughout the city.  By 1910 this system was so widespread for those uses and drinking water that chlorine was added as a disinfectant.  Interestingly, ozone was presented as an option to replace chlorine for primary disinfectant in 1912!  It was researched and tested, but deemed unsatisfactory and Chlorine use was continued.  In 1997 ozone was put on line in Milwaukee.  This is an issue that has come full circle.  Here we are 100 years later discussing the use of ozone in this same water system.

The keynote speaker of the opening session was Lana Pollack, Chair of the International Joint Commission (US Section).  She spoke about her work with the IJC and the environmental and political aspects involved with water quality in the Great Lakes and border regions.  The IJC was formed in 1909 between the United States and Canada to settle border water disputes.  This organization in in charge of 4,000 miles of border and 300 individual bodies of water.  For more information visit
