Using the correct catalysts in a Vent Ozone Distructor ( VOD)
VOD,s are deployed for destroying residual ozone from the vents of Ozone contact tanks . VODs are 2 types , one being Thermal and the other Catalytic. Choosing the correct catalysts for the catalytic type is utmost important. Many Ozone distructors available in India are locally made with no consideration of design. Most of them have activated carbon as catalysts .
This is out of ignorance. Activated carbon are used to strip residual ozone from water and it is very effective here. But when used as catalysts for VODs they can be very dangerous. Firstly they genearte heat during adsorption . Then it has been noted that some Carbon Monoxide is formed as a side reaction and this is not safe . So when ever you opt for VODs , check out on the catalysts . Request MSD of the catalysts . . Be safe . Use ozone safely . Contact OTSIL for safe ozone distructors . We guarantee 100% vent ozone destruction .
