Recently I was called to a fairly large company to check on an ozone system installed for water treatment . They were not getting results . They were sold a 500 grams ozone system by an Indian manufacturer . against our will be were coaxed to check the ozone production and found that the unit was generating only 70 grams . This was confirmed also by the actual power consumption of the unit . There was nothing the buyer could do at this stage as the manufacture was giving ll sorts of excuses for non performances and shifting the blame to the engineering of the contact tanks, water quality and what not.
these situations do not happen in developed countries and it is high time we became sensitive to these tall claims of few irresponsible ozone manufactures .Buyers , consultants must exercise their rights enforcing performance as claimed/guaranteed
Today OTSIL has replaced more than 30 units of other ozone manufacturers within the last 2 years – All of them within warranty period. . We do not actually like it and are frustrated ourselves . Will it Change ?
Rip Rice & Allan Pryor and few others not to mention, have been stalwarts in the ozone Industry There is not one article on ozone that would not have their names as references . They created world ozone awareness . If they had been to themselves , if they had been selfish , I could imagine what the status of the ozone Industry would be today.
Some of other colleagues in ozone whom I want to openly acknowledge , Guys who have taught me so much and made me what I am today. Jean Yves Perrot ( where are you Sir ?) Loius Benard Wiart , Jean Christophe Hostachy , Florian Mills ( Suez) , Harald Staple and Marco Rosner and many others . Over 20 years association . These are some who have been my mentors . My inspiration . Thank you guys . You have been wholly selfless.
time to pay back , I have complied this Ozone 101 . A very simple compilation that put together all what I have been taught in ozone . Join Ozone users In India LinkedIn group I created and request one and know all about ozone . We need more members in India to join with world Group . this brings befit to India
OZONE SAFETY TIP – 2
Ozone Generators are like capacitors . They operate at very high Voltage. The dielectrics can store power even when the mains are off . Do not operate ozone systems with panel doors open. It is advisable for users not to service systems by themselves unless they have been sufficiently trained or under supervision of manufacture. Always disconnect power before you attempt to service an ozone system . Always ground the electrodes first before service. This grounding will discharge an accumulated power within the dielectrics. A good ozone system will provide for these safety. It is manufactures responsibility to warn users .Safety manuals should be provided. safety training should be part of handing over of systems
Also ozone systems have strong electro magnetic fields . It is important for the user to know that persons with pace makers should not be allowed to go near an operating ozone system . The electro magnetic fields could cause the pace make to misbehave . Have you been told about this earlier ?
We at OTSIL put safety first. We value life. Come to OTSIL for safe reliable ozone systems
Many water treatment consultants would have faced this situation . Pseudomonas Nil when measured in the presence of residual chlorine . But the moment you use SMBS and remove the residual chlorine , the Pseudomonas reappears . This is not uncommon if you know the behavioral pattern of these gram negative pathogens . They become sessile under unfavorable conditions and proliferate when the conditions are in their favor . When you use ozone in these conditions you need to be very careful and consider various factors to ensure total removal of these pathogens. Many solution providers resort to high ozone dose without really taking care the root cause
We have successfully provided solutions to many Pharmaceutical companies and shown how this should be done. Merely introducing high doses of ozone will have very little effect. Residual chlorine in process water does not mean that you have eradicated gram negative pathogens . Contact OTSIL for reliable solutions in these situations .
Blogging for Ozone awareness
25 years of ozone experience now. It is time to pay back. For one to one interactions , I have started this blog and trying to spend what ever spare time is available with me on this activity . Initiating discussions, on various ozone topics could solicit interested persons to participate and try gather useful information. Internet is useful. But how many persons know which is right and which is wrong information. I have also taken time to prepare an Ozone 101 hand book of ozone and it is ready now. This is a non commercial activity of mine and is for free distribution to those showing genuine interest in ozone. The catch – you must register yourself in the linkedIn group I have created- ozone users in India . Go to www.otsil.net and click on the Join ozone users in India and follow instructions . If you find it difficult just send me an email with all your contact details etc . I will mail you the pdf copy to you . You can also use that platform for discussions , there you could get information from others through their experience . V.Baratharaj
