Accurate air preparation is critical to efficient ozone production and to the longevity of corona discharge ozone generators. Reliable air prep systems produce more ozone and require far less maintenance.
The air preparation system lowers the dew point of the feed gas. Moist feed gas (air) will cause nitric acid to form inside the generator which decreases ozone production and if not removed, causes corrosion and eventual failure of the generator’s internal components. The ability of the ozone generator to produce ozone is drastically reduced as the dew point rises above -55°C.
