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 ?
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 ?

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 .
