Disadvantages are the necessity of perforating the soil, which may involve geotechnical problems, and royalties required because it is a proprietary system. B. UV Radiation Based Processes For these cases, the so-called photoreactors are usually cylindrical chambers that contain inner quartz sleeves where UV lamps are placed. These lamps are generally medium-pressure mercury vapor lamps (emitting radiation between 200 to 300 nm) of up to 60 kW each. The sleeve can have automatic devices that wipe at regular intervals any precipitate formed or particles deposited on the sleeve walls, thus avoiding the problem of reduced light transmittance [134].

One possible disadvantage of static mixers is the pressure drop along the unit that limits the water flow rate applied. However, in some systems, such as those with sieve plates, the large freearea percentage, about 55%, allows a moderate pressure drop of 3000 to 7000 Pa with practically 100% ozone utilization [130]. The deep-U tube is constituted by two vertical concentric tubes approximately 20 m deep through which water and gas flow (inner tube) downwards and then upward through the outer tube.

The deep-U tube is constituted by two vertical concentric tubes approximately 20 m deep through which water and gas flow (inner tube) downwards and then upward through the outer tube. The main advantage of this system is the high driving force to dissolve ozone because of the high pressure and plug flow behavior due to the high velocity [133].
