Ozone Generator Review
When it comes to ozone generators, we have seen it all. One popular brand uses 4" plastic fenceposts to build the case and powers the system with a transformer and stainless steel screens. (Talk about old school). Another self-promoted Internet guru hacks existing blowers, fans, and vacuums to build his machines in a garage. A third promoter actually uses a plastic drain box to build his ozone generators. And each claims to be the ultimate in ozone products.
In this ozone generator review, we are going to ignore these garage-built contraptions and focus on a few key items. Power, construction, and durability. There are other issues to consider, but these are the most important to anyone using ozone generators.
When it comes to power, there is a "Sweet Spot" that should be considered. That range is 20,000 to 40,000 mg/hr. We have found that there are several reasons to avoid too-small and too-large ozone generators. Too-small machines require too much time to treat a real problem, and too-large machines can cause the ozone smell to embed, meaning the ozone smell will stay in the building for months.
Too-large units 70,000 to 100,000 are not only overkill, but they are heavy and expensive to repair. They also concentrate the ozone in one location unless you add several fans to redistribute the ozone.
Construction should be stainless steel parts, and parts that are not easily corroded. The blowers and fans hacked into ozone machines are destined to fail because they were not built for long-term exposure to ozone.
The final question is whether the ozone generator can be "Field Repaired". Most ozone generators are not made for field repairs or simple maintenance. This means the unit gradually loses power, set on the shelf, and a new machine must be ordered.
Without going into a long dissertation our choice in the ozone generator review, we like the 32G from Professional Ozone. We think our readers will too.
