Ozone generator is used to produce ozone gas (O3). Ozone is easy to decompose and cannot be stored. It needs to be prepared and used on site (short term storage can be done under special circumstances). Ozone generators must be used everywhere.
Principle of ozone generator:
High pressure ionization (or chemical or photochemical reaction) is used to decompose and polymerize part of oxygen in the air into ozone, which is an allotropic transformation process of oxygen; it can also be obtained by electrolytic water method. The instability of ozone makes it difficult to realize bottled storage. Generally, it can only be produced by ozone generator on site and used with production. There are three kinds of ozone generators: high voltage discharge, ultraviolet radiation and electrolysis.
Rules for using ozonators:
1. Control the change of air supply pressure. The pressure of the ozonator will affect the corona power induction and the voltage applied to both ends of the dielectric. Large pressure range will lead to unreliable operation of generator. Exceeding the corona power range will result in a fuse. Or the automatic circuit breaker has been disconnected. If the applied voltage peak is exceeded, the dielectric will be disabled prematurely.
2. The gas in the ozonator shall not contain hydrocarbons, corrosive gases and any other substances that can react in an oxygen / ozone / corona environment. These substances may damage the ozone generator and may cause explosion, etc.
3. In the design of ozone generator, a large amount of water must be prevented from entering the generator. If the float valve of the water seal gas supply compressor or the condensation valve on the air dryer is blocked, anyone will enter the ozone layer. Corona chamber of generator will lead to corona concentration, high current density and local dielectric heating, which will lead to premature dielectric failure.
Ozone generator is mainly used for purification and disinfection, but when using ozone generator, we should pay attention to many aspects. I hope the above contents can help you.
