What is an Ozone Generator?
Ozone generators are devices that produce ozone (O₃) within a certain system and mechanism and are used to disinfect pool water. It offers much more efficient cleaning than chlorine with the ozone they produce. Ozone generators, which enable the artificial production of ozone, one of the inorganic molecules, are especially used in the cleaning of large swimming pools.
Ozone is a powerful oxidizing gas that can be used to make water comply with the necessary hygiene conditions. It has a solubility of 1.05 g L-1 in water at 0 °C, which means that ozone can react with water about 200 times faster than chlorine.
Ozone generators come in both small and large sizes depending on the requirements. The amount of ozone they produce varies according to the brand, model and operating power. Ozone generators show 3 times stronger cleaning performance than chlorine used in pool cleaning.
Like many materials used in routine cleaning and maintenance periods of swimming pools, ozone generator is among the ideal equipment for cleaning. Hygiene is very important in both 4 season swimming pools and indoor/outdoor swimming pools. With the ozone generator, you can speed up the cleaning process and get a much more sterile pool water.
The features of the ozone generator are as follows:
When the ozone generator is used, residues and waste materials do not settle to the bottom of the pool water.
The ozone molecule emerging in the generator mechanism comes into contact with water through diffusers located at the base of the mechanism. With the dissolution of the ozone molecule in water, the radicals emitted into the water are oxidized and the pool water is cleaned. The equipment in the ozone generator is as follows: air preparation mechanism, ozone distribution mechanism, tank diffusers, ozone destruction unit, ozone generator cooling water group, control panel and power distribution panel.
Thanks to the energy source in the ozone generator mechanism, ozone molecule is obtained as a result of the collision of molecules separated into oxygen atoms with dissociated oxygen atoms. Oxygen fed from the energy source, together with the gas it carries, reveals ozone in the current through discharge.
Ozone generators are used in many areas for water purification and cleaning processes. Various types of ozone generators are found in personal pools, public pools, business pools, homes for drinking water purification, food and beverage industry, construction field, health field, medical field and automotive industry.
Benefits of ozone generator:
Especially the cleaning of large swimming pools is quite demanding. After draining tons of water in the pool and cleaning the pool floor and walls, filling the pool with water again is a costly process. In pools using ozone generators, less cost and less effort is spent for pool cleaning. Thus, the cleaning process of both business pools and personal pools is facilitated. More fun times can be spent with the pleasure of swimming in a pool water with less chemicals.
Damages of the ozone generator:
The usage mechanisms of ozone generators in all sectors and areas are quite simple. The ozone generator device, which is selected according to its technical specifications compatible with the working area, is positioned in a fixed area. When both industrial and domestic ozone generators are to be used, they are activated with the on button.
Ozone generators, which should be used in a moisture-free and dry area with electrical installation, work only with air. The installation of industrial ozone generators selected according to the pool water capacity and the frequency of use of the pool is carried out by the technical team. When the swimming pools are empty, their use is started by pressing the start button.
The types of pools where ozone generators can be used are as follows:
