Heat Destroys Ozone Generator
Finding a good quality ozone generator is more than price and Internet boasting. The construction of the ozone system should be designed to last for years. Every professional knows that heat is the enemy and prematurely ages parts. Heat also destroys ozone generators. Every electrical system runs better and lasts longer when they stay cool. The process of design should be more than a box, a fan, and transformers with ozone plates.
While many people may not understand the concept of heatsinks, they are used in nearly every type of electrical system. These finned surfaces allow the heat to move away from the critical systems so they run cool. So, we were impressed when we found a way to attach heatsinks to the ozone plates that are the hottest part of the ozone generator.
Could this be improved? How about dual fans that not only produce a strong airflow but also keeps air flowing if one fan fails. If a single fan fails in a poorly designed system, overheating could have some nasty consequences.
The combination of dual fans and well-place heatsink may seem unnecessary to some, but reliability is not an accident.
Thirdly, ozone systems should not be in plastic cases. Heat causes plastic and rubber parts to age and become brittle. Metal cases are preferred for ozone generators.
When buying an ozone generator, look for one that has been reviewed by the National Ozone Association and has earned the NOAI Approved seal.
