Taking Ozone Limitation and Monitoring to the Next Level
Jan 01 2000
Residual ozone from industries that are using it in high levels can be a potential health and safety issue, particularly if it is used in high concentrations, as it often is. Take for example the semiconductor industry, ozone that is produced in factory areas where lasers and other equipment are being used can not only be harmful to health – especially for those people that suffer from asthma or respiratory problems – but also, if this compound makes its way into the ‘clean room’, then there is a high risk of electronic chips being damaged due to the high oxidising effect of the compound. In instances where this has happened this has led to losses running into thousands of pounds. “As a solution for industries such as this, we have been asked to monitor not only levels of ozone being given off in one area, but also the impact of that ozone on other areas such as clean rooms and administration offices.”
One of the products that Enviro Technology has provided for its multimonitoring capabilities is the API 465L Single/MultiChannel Ozone Analyser. This analyser is extremely stable and is ideal for lowlevel ppm safety and process applications. One of the unique features of the 465L Single/MultiChannel Ozone Analyser is that it can monitor from up to six different points, thus enabling an organisation to ensure that all the areas which could suffer from too high a level of ozone are monitored and, where necessary, ozone control and limitation technology installed to curb negative effects on human health and products produced.
Enviro Technology has also worked with clients in the water treatment industry and has supplied ozone analysers that control the output of ozone generators in water treatment and sterilisation applications. “Connecting analysers to ozone generators and using the range of control outputs can start and stop the generators at preset levels, ensuring that enough ozone is produced, and that generation is stopped, when levels become too high.”
