How to Select an Ozone Generator

The ozone generator is a special equipment for sterilization. At present, there are mainly two types: oxygen source type and air source type. So, what factors should be considered when purchasing it?
I. Determine the model of ozone generator, namely ozone output
When purchasing an ozone generator, first determine its use, that is, it is used for air sterilization and deodorization or for water treatment. If used for air treatment, the low-concentration economical open ozone generator can be selected, which includes open type with air source and open type without air source. It is better to choose the type with air source. This type of ozone generator has simple structure and low price, but temperature and humidity affect the amount of ozone generated during operation. The open ozone generator is the simplest ozone device, so for air treatment in demanding places, a high-concentration ozone generator should be selected. In air treatment, it is put in according to the standard of 20-50mg/m3, and higher value should be selected in the food and drug industry. The total amount of ozone (that is, the output of ozone generator) can be obtained by conversion based on the size of the space. When used for water treatment, a high-concentration ozone generator (ozone concentration higher than 12mg/L) must be selected because low-concentration ozone is ineffective for water treatment. The high-concentration ozone generator is equipped with air source, air source treatment device and ozone generating device as standard. Small-scale ozone generators can be designed as integrated models with output between 5-200g/h. Large and medium-sized ozone generators basically exist in the form of units.
II. Identify the quality of ozone generator
The quality of ozone generators can be distinguished from many aspects such as manufacturing materials, system configuration, cooling methods, working frequency, control methods, ozone concentration, air source and power consumption indicators. A high-quality ozone generator should be made of high-dielectric materials, standard configuration (including air source and purification device), dual-electrode cooling, high-frequency drive, intelligent control, high ozone concentration output, low power consumption and low air source consumption.
III. Cost performance
High-quality ozone generators are in accordance with its standards from design to configuration to manufacturing materials, and the cost is much higher than low-grade generators and low-configuration generators. However, the performance of high-quality ozone generators is very stable, and the ozone concentration and output are not affected by environmental factors. However, the low-configuration ozone generator is greatly affected by the environment when it is working. The increase in temperature and humidity can greatly reduce the ozone production and concentration, and affect the treatment effect. The price and performance should be comprehensively compared when purchasing.
IV. Avoid misunderstandings
1. Check whether the ozone generator contains a air source. The cost of a generator with air source and a generator without air source are quite different.
2. Understand the structure of the ozone generator, make sure whether it can be operated continuously, and its ozone output concentration and other indicators.
3. Confirm the rated output of the ozone generator, and figure out it is the output marked when using an air source or an oxygen source. Because the ozone output of the ozone generator using an oxygen source is twice that of an air source, the cost difference between the two is nearly doubled.
V. Backup machine
For places where continuous work is not allowed to stop, there should be a backup machine when purchasing an ozone generator. Purchasing according to the principle of dual use and one backup, one use and one backup. The standby unit is mainly used alternately during equipment maintenance or repair to avoid impact on normal production due to downtime for maintenance.
