Purfresh, a Livermore, Calif. company that makes ozone equipment for purification of food and water, has added on $5 million to close out its $25 million third financing.

The company is busy expanding into Europe, although its CEO told VentureBeat a couple months ago that it could be profitable “tomorrow afternoon” if it stuck to business at home.

Perella Weinberg Partners added the $5 million investment. The investors in the remaining $20 million were Chilton Investment Co, Chrysalix Energy, Grauer Capital and Foundation Capital. Purfresh has taken $42 million to date.
