How is Ozone Output Measured for Ozone Generators
When researching ozone generators on the Internet, customer may ask how is the ozone output measured for ozone generators? There is no coordinated way to measure ozone, so the manufacturer claims are often quite bold and often misleading.
According to NOAI, the correct way to measure ozone output is accomplished with a pure oxygen feed of the ozone cell. Pure oxygen obviously provides a rich supply of O2, which is converted to O3 (ozone). If the output is properly measured, we can rate the ozone cell accordingly. This information is primarily critical to those using medical ozone that is generated in smaller quantities.
Let's return to the real world of sanitizing rooms and building, destroying odors embedding in homes, killing mold in a building, or detoxifying a sick building. The gross volume of air that is measured in tens of thousands of cubic feet, cannot be supplied by a very limited volume of pure ozone from bottles or an oxygen concentrator.
So, these large, non-medical applications use ambient air in the building. We do not have pure oxygen in our shared atmosphere.
