Application of ozone gas monitor
Ozone (O3) is commonly used in many industries as an oxidizer and disinfectant, but has a variety of other uses elsewhere. Therefore, although it is a unique gas, it can be found in a wide range of industries. Since ozone is a highly toxic gas, it is important to use an ozone gas monitor whenever possible. If you're not sure if ozone exists in your industry, or if you just want to know where it exists, read the following articles. We discuss all of the above plus our detectable solutions for better ozone gas monitoring to help prevent ozone poisoning.
What are the hazards of ozone gas?
As mentioned above, ozone gas is highly toxic. It has a strong pungent odor and, due to its oxidizing properties, can cause damage to the mucous and respiratory tissues of animals and the tissues of plants at concentrations above about 100 ppb. Thus, making ozone a powerful respiratory and pollutant hazard close to the ground.
Ozone has a STEL as low as 0.2ppm and no TWA. Demonstrate the extent to which ozone is harmful to human health and the environment. Therefore, an ozone gas monitor is essential to prevent the toxic effects of ozone in the workplace.
Where does ozone exist?
O3 can be found in a wide range of industries, most of which require oxidizers or disinfectants as part of company processes. Here are some of the most common industries where you'll find ozone gas:
Industrial wastewater (or effluent) can contain numerous pollutants such as various VOCs, cyanides, and household waste. Therefore, water treatment companies will use a variety of chemicals to remove these substances, one of which is ozone. Water treatment companies prefer ozone over chlorine because of its ability to easily degrade organic and inorganic pollutants and at low cost. Hence, it is frequently used in this industry and therefore stored in large quantities, requiring the use of fixed or portable ozone gas monitors.
Ozone's potent disinfectant properties mean it's being used in a variety of different forms throughout hospitals to help keep staff areas safe, especially during the COVID-19 outbreak. The most common method of sanitizing is a generator that releases ozone gas at a concentration of 20ppm into the room, filling the room and sanitizing all surfaces. Ultraviolet lamps are also used to sanitize areas that also release small amounts of ozone gas. Therefore, due to the large amount of ozone gas released, a portable ozone gas monitor is required to help spot check the room once the sanitation is complete.
Ozone is not only an effective disinfectant, it is also a highly effective bleaching chemical. It produces bright and stable pulp at extremely low cost, making it popular in the paper industry. Furthermore, ozone offers a more environmentally friendly method of pulp bleaching compared to chlorine (for example). This gives ozone an advantage over other chemicals due to the strict regulations on wastewater in the paper industry. Ozone is used in high concentrations to obtain the desired pulp brightness and will be widely used in paper mills. Therefore, implementing an ozone gas monitor is essential to ensure personnel safety.
You wouldn't think that ozone gas monitors would have a place in the automotive industry, but ozone is widely used in the industry due to its cleaning and disinfecting properties. Similar to the medical industry, ozone is released into the car through the O3 generator, filling the car and reaching areas that normal car cleaning cannot reach, such as air vents. This is used throughout the automotive industry, from the manufacture of the car all the way to its use in some car washes. Due to the high concentration of O3 released, spot checks using ozone gas monitors to ensure the area is critical for personnel and customer safety.
A better ozone gas monitoring solution can be detected
NDIR Modules Detect O3 Gas-O3 detector-UV ozone sensor module
UV ozone sensor module has the characteristics of long life, high accuracy and no oxygen dependence, which has been used as the standard method for ozone analysis in the United States and other countries. UV ozone sensor has low price and can be continuously monitored for a long time. It has a wide range of applications, and can be used in hospitals, pharmaceutical factories, factories and other occasions.After the ultraviolet radiation from the ultraviolet light source is absorbed by a certain concentration of the gas to be measured, the spectral intensity in direct proportion to the gas concentration will change.
Therefore, the concentration of the gas to be measured can be inversed by calculating the variation of the spectral intensity. UV ozone sensor module is a universal UV-0 sensor module, which is based on the detection principle of UV absorption technology and combines advanced optical path, precision circuit and intelligent software
Ozone gas sensor-fixed detector
Fixed gas detector, stable performance, sensitive and reliable. With high-precision liquid crystal display, explosion-proof housing, diffusion type or pump suction type. The O3 detector has the characteristics of flexible use and simple operation. The O3 detector is used in various gas leakage places, such as: city gas, petroleum, chemical, pharmaceutical, steel, special industrial plants and other fields. The explosion-proof level of the O3 detector is CT6.The O3 detector can be widely used in chemical plants, gas stations, farms, spray painting rooms, gas pipelines, kitchens, storage, metallurgy, gas stations, mining and other scenes.
