Feed Gas Preparation

Processes requiring low concentrations of ozone may be serviced with clean, dry air (21% O2). Typically, ozone is generated from concentrated oxygen (>90% O2) to yield higher concentrations of ozone.

 

 

Ozone Generation

Pacific Ozone generators produce high concentrations and volumes of ozone by corona discharge utilizing patented Floating Plate Technology reaction chambers. Oxygen gas flowing through the electrical corona in the reaction cell is converted to ozone (4-8 % conversion is typical, depending on reaction conditions).

 

Mass Transfer

In ozone mass transfer, ozone gas is typically dissolved into a stream of water through a venturi injector and transferred to a contacting tank. Pacific Ozone's pre-configured, integrated Enhanced Mass Transfer system maximizes the transfer rates for each application. Excess ozone gas that does not dissolve into the water stream is vented from the top of the tank through a destruct device that safely converts the excess ozone back to oxygen (O2).

 

Control/Monitoring

Controls are typically designed into ozone systems to monitor and optimize ozone production and demand. Systems can be designed to automatically compensate for changes in demand and operational conditions to maintain a preset level of residual ozone.
