Buyers must exercise their right while buying an ozone generator

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 ?

Thank You to my mentors

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

Making Ozone Use Safer In India – We value Life

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

Reappearance of Pseudomanas after Dechlorination with SMBS

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 .
