Ozone

Ozone Generation

  • Electric discharge between two charged electrodes in the presence of air or oxygen.
  • Air/Oxygen must be oil-free, particle-free, and must have moisture removed to a -40ºF dew point or lower.
  • Ozone obtained has a concentration of 1-5% by weight.

Powerful Oxidant

Dosage level for pure water2-3 PPM
Materials of constructionStainless steel, Teflon polyethylene, DO NOT USE RUBBER

 

Ozone and Water Conductivity

  1. Organics + Ozone
    Intermediate Compounds
    Carbon Dioxide + Water = Increase Conductivity of Water
     
  2. Also, impurities present in air (from which ozone water generated) can increase the conductivity of water.
