Type of ozone generating process:
HFCD - High Frequency Corona Discharge - the most challenging and the most rewarding ozone producing process currently known and commercially used. The development of our HFCD systems was allowed by advancements in the production of semiconductors, leaving classic ozone generating processes - Low Frequency (50 and 60Hz) Corona Discharge and Cold Plasma systems far behind. Ozone gas is produced by high voltage discharge harnessed inside a specially designed electrode. Variable frequency of the discharge (GE ozone generators operate in range of 0-10kHz) allows production of highly concentrated ozone gas while maintaining precision of the ozone production.

HFCD offers an excellent ozone output : size / weight ratio allowing the production of smaller & lighter ozone generators with higher & more precise ozone output and lower power consumption.

Materials used:
All parts and components of our ozonation equipment for Ultra Pure Applications exposed directly to the ozone stream are ozone resistant. In order to minimize the possibility for the contamination of the ozone stream, we created a design which utilizes only two highly ozone resistant materials for components exposed to ozone gas:

  • glass - ozone producing cell, panel fittings, diffuser, moisturizing containers, mixers, etc.
  • silicone - all flexible ozone lines

NO stainless steel, low grade plastic or ceramic is used. To cope with special needs resulting from uncompromising GE design we had to establish a glassblowing department in our company, therefore the quality of all glass components can be easily monitored .

Plastic Quick connectors used for all external tubing connections were tested (85 µg/ml for more than 5000 hours) for resistance to ozone with no sign of deterioration.

GE60FMGenerator cabinet design:
The cabinet is a lightweight, durable, aluminum box with an industrial grade powdercoat finish. The GE30 & GE60 Ozone Generators can be inserted into foam within a case, mounted on a portable stand or on a wall. Upright position of the generator is preferable because of the ventury type flowmeter incorporated into the front panel of the ozone generator. When in an upright position the high voltage 100% enclosed glass electrode is also "standing" in an upright position thereby allowing any liquid that may have entered the unit by accident or condensation to freely drain. The special design of all system components allows the user to operate the generator even when inserted in the foam within the case. The ozone generator can be also operated as a desk top unit. Ozone is produced within a 100% enclosed glass high voltage electrode and ozone output is independently regulated by a 10 step rotary regulator located at the front panel of the generator. A 3" fan provides sufficient cooling for all components inside the ozone generator.

Regulation of oxygen/ozone flow and ozone concentration:

To allow the user of the ozonation equipment to control the exact amount and the concentration of ozone gas produced, all GE60 ozone generators are equipped with two independent regulators:

  • Flow regulation - flow selection is done directly by setting the oxygen flow regulator dial at desired setting. The built-in flowmeter located at the front panel of the GE30 and GE60 instrument allows visual monitoring of selected flow. GE ozone generators are produced in the two following variations:
    • FM500 - our standard model with flowmeter range 50-500cc/min
    • FM100 - optional model available upon request. Flow meter range 10-100cc/min
  • Ozone concentration regulation - 10 step frequency regulator built into the front panel of each GE ozone generator controls the frequency of the high voltage discharge in the ozone producing cell, consequently regulating the concentration of ozone gas produced.

Ozone output:
All ozone generators are tested and calibrated separately. An Ozone Output Test Report is provided with each system. Variations of ozone output does not exceed ± 5% - if equipment is operated under (or close to) following conditions:

  • room temperature 20-23°C / 68-74°F
  • barometric pressure 97-103 kPa

Average ozone output produced by standard GE ozone generators are:

Ozone Output Testing and Ozone Output Test Reports:
It is important to realize that measuring ozone concentrations is rather tricky task due to very unstable nature of ozone gas. The precision of measuring ozone concentrations during the calibration process of individual instruments determines the accuracy/precision of the Ozone Output Tests Report for each ozone generator produced and sold by our company.

Our test reports are obtained by way of using two Ozone Analyzers utilizing UV absorption principle based on the Beer Lambert Law. The Ozone Analyzers are sensitive instruments which must be regularly maintained and their performance must be monitored. For this very reason we have adopted in 1997 the testing process in which we do not consider the results obtained from one monitoring device (ozone analyzer) to be valid as long as they are not confirmed with the readings from a second independent analyzer. From our point of view the use of two independent analyzers for calibrations of ozone generators we supply to our clients in laboratory, medical and research facilities is an unquestionable necessity, not a luxury or a marketing trick as some of our competitors claim.

Ozone Output Tests Report (OOTR)
Data collected during ozone output calibration testing are used to produce Ozone Output Test Report (OOTR). The OOTR is a carefully designed table, which gives the end user of the equipment an instant access to all essential data needed for the correct and safe operation of the ozonation equipment produced by our company. It is important that all end users of ozone producing instruments know how to read the OOTR and how to interpret data in the OOTR.

Safety first - Ozone Destructor:
Ozone gas in higher concentrations has the ability to irritate the sensitive lung tissue and eyes. The Ozone Destructor is incorporated into GE line of ozonation systems as a very important safety device and it serves for a proper elimination of the excess ozone gas which may be produced during the start up of the ozonation system, ozonation of water and number of other applications.

Electrical Safety of our clients is very important to us. For this very reason our main products - GE30 & GE60 ozone generators are powered by 12VDC - internationally recognized safe voltage which is frequently used for control systems in volatile industrial operations.

Open Architecture Design - "Lego" principle:
Open architecture design had always its own add on value, therefore it is no coincidence that Lego® rules the "toy-word".

Our GE line of ozonation systems take also an advantage of the open architecture design. This principle allows our company to expand the GE line of products and attachments as needed.

The additional benefit resulting from our design approach is the possibility for the client to customize his/her ozonation systems in accord to his/her specific need. Our product literature may be of an assistance during the selection process. Clients may also request our technical assistance via telephone or e-mail.

Leading the crowd:
To our knowledge, our company was the first developer and producer of ozonation systems for Ultra Pure Applications to provide an Ozone Output Test Report with each ozone generator used for Ultra Pure Applications and to implement a combination of:

  • glass high voltage electrode with a self draining effect
  • an independent regulation for oxygen flow and ozone concentration
  • an ozone destructor

Due to the specific design and durability of our GE ozone generators, the equipment is able to provide ultra pure, highly concentrated ozone gas for individual needs, laboratories, and for a wide variety of special application where the ozone generator is required to work in a frequent ON/OFF regime or even continuously.

The following simple drawing outlines three main categories of laboratory testing utilizing ozone gas produced by our GE ozone instruments.

Laboratory Setups

Installation requirements:

  • Indoor use only - protect against excessive dust, humidity and water back-flow.
  • Power surge protectors should be used to protect GE ozone generators.
