Air Flow and Ozone Generators
There are many important elements used in our ozone generators. Ozone can corrode parts over time, so the enegineeering is an important conderation that allows the generator to run well for years after purchase. While the fundamentals of ozone generation is pretty basic, the quality of the machine makes a world of difference.
There are many producers using zinc or copper fittings believing that you must replace your equipment anyway. We decided a long time ago to use the most anti-corrosive parts possible. For wire connections, we not only solder, we seal with tape and heat shrink to seal out all air. We apply an anti-corrosive paste to any exposed metal part that comes with a fitting. This takes time, but we want our equipment to last knowing that quality will attract serious people as well.
One of the longevity issues in the build are screws, nuts, washers, and case. We could go with stainless-steel 18-8, but we buy the more expensive Stainless 316 because we want out machines to last for years. You see, stainless steel does not corrode in an ozone environment, so the equipment will not fail.
The fan is critical to an ozone generator, and fan failure can cause the system to overheat and ruin the entire system. Fans are so important that we decided to install TWO FANS in our 15/30G MAX. This adds to the cost and more so because we use high-quality fans. Two fans produce a strong, steady flow of air to the treatment area. Even if one fan were to fail, the system will continue to run just fine.
We also use the more expensive ball bearing fans that are made to standup up to demanding requirements. These fans are specifically chosen to produce volumes of ozonated air without failing. The overall impact is a professional machine that will do the job for years.
The decision to build the new 15/30G MAX in a durable metal case with powder-coated surfaces make the case nearly dent-proof, non-corrosive, and still an overall less-than-12-pound weight.
