Practical application

Benefical technology

Nanobubbles generator implementation for waste disposal, as highlighted on this website, represents only one aspect of the technology's many beneficial uses. This technology has proven potential for application and utilization in a diverse array of industrial sectors, such as pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, hydroculture, food production, defense and military hardware and filtration systems. The nanobubbles technology developed at Anzai Kantetsu Co., LTD is not only easy and cost-efficient in regards to its implementation and operation, but thanks to its unique design can help make significant contributions to your organization's environmental sustainability and conservation practices.

Oxygenated nanobubbles technology is a research area in which Japan is at the forefront of development. Presently, there are various established methods for nanobubbles production, but only Anzai Kantetsu Co., LTD. specializes in low-cost implementation through both simple and cost-efficient hardware and has an established record for using said technology in active ocean purification projects.

In regions with large populations, a critical problem that must be addressed is biological and chemical waste disposal. Many of the methods currently used to address this problem are costly, logistically complex, and inefficient, but this is an area where oxygenated nanobubbles technology particularly excels. As a consequence of contemporary waste disposal processes, chemical sludge often becomes oxygen-depleted prior to disposal. Without oxygen, bacteria has a difficult time breaking down the waste and as more and more accumulates, it only increases the negative impact it has on the environment.

By introducing oxygenated nanobubbles into a target area, marine bacteria is able to more effectively process the waste and repurpose it for its nutritional benefits. This results in a biological chain reaction that can significantly increase biodiversity and organism population sizes in the local environment. By using our firm's nanobubbles technology and hardware, implementers will be able to significantly contribute to environmental restoration and sustainability efforts in their immediate area.

Use of sterilization property of ultrafine bubble

When ultrafine bubbles contract and then collapse they generate active oxygen. The sterilization property can also be improved via use of a gas such as ozone. Active oxygen does not have a long lifespan, and results in no toxic materials like trihalomethane. Sterilization using ultrafine bubbles is an extremely safe and harmless method to use.

This method has received a high level of recognition in many practical fields.

Eliminating noroviruses from oyster has been an important issue in the oyster cultivation business. Washing oysters using ultrafine bubbles including ozone two days prior to shipment eliminates any noroviruses and results in beautiful cream-colored oysters.

Use of the living body activation property of ultrafine bubble

Ultrafine bubbles increases the vitality of cells. Ultrafine bubbles have been proved to cure carp herpes. The therapeutic effect with regard to gum disease and infection and anti-inflammatory effect of ultrafine bubbles have also been confirmed. Even though an unbelievable combination, all of them are growing without any problems. Water containing a large amount of ultrafine oxygen bubbles with salinity close to seawater can be used to breed deep-sea fishes. The photos show phalaenopsis, iwana mountain trout, rainbow trout, sweet fish, and Channel rockfish (deep-sea fish that live 350 to 1,300 meters below the surface of the sea) at a water salinity of 3%.

A number of field researchers have confirmed the effectiveness of ultrafine bubbles when used in the agriculture and marine industries.
However, the high running cost, the low durability of devices, and high initial investment have hindered many people from using the method.
Our ultrafine bubble generator does away with those problems.
Environmentally friendly ultrafine bubble technology can be used to solve many current problems.

Use of the cell protection property of ultrafine bubble

Ultrafine bubbles are present in every hole and corner of the cells of organisms, activate them, and at the same time prevent the structure of cells from breaking down when frozen.

Use of the heat transfer property of ultrafine bubble

The many vapor and liquid interfaces of ultrafine bubbles aid in more effective heat transfer. The structure below shows a direct heat type ultrafine bubble generator, for which we have applied for a patent for. It can be used to very efficiently increase the temperature of the liquid phase. In addition, cooling the vapor phase supplied enables the temperature of the liquid phase to be more effectively decreased.

Use of the vaporization promotion property of ultrafine bubble

Micro nanobubbles promote water vaporization. Ultrafine bubbles, whose diameter is less than 100 microns when forming, self-contract because ions present at the interface. The bubbles then contract to nano-level size and release energy before collapsing.
The energy released at that time then creates ions with sterilization properties (OH-) and promote vaporization.

This cooling tower structure is actually very simple. Water is sprayed from the above and comes in contact with the filler, and the wind then vaporizes the water. During that process the latent heat of the vaporization cools the water. Easier vaporization of water is the most effective way of improving efficiency.  

This is the most frequently used method for cooling in the world!

A variety of positive effects in a number of applications have been confirmed, and in including medical treatment for carcinoma of the colon and rectum, cancer of the esophagus, cancer of the larynx, skin cancer, gum disease, arterial sclerosis, infections, artificial dialysis, and barium meal transplantation.

During the war ozone water was considered a magic lifesaver. Ozone water can now easily be created using ultrafine bubble technology. In addition, civilian use of technology such as oxygenated water containing nanobubbles and nanobubbles baths is increasing in popularity. The availability of simple water purification systems could help save up to 600 million people merely in eastern Asia. Ultrafine bubble technology could thus doubly contribute to people's health by providing preventive measures and countermeasures.
