Ozone produced from UV Light for Commercial Applications

Ozone is produced commercially from an ozone generator using UV light also. Ozone is produced from UV light wavelengths below 240 nm. Ozone production peaks at UV light wavelengths of 185 nm. Using UV lights tuned specifically for a wavelength of 185 nm ozone can be produced from air.

ADVANTAGES OF UV OZONE GENERATOR

  • Simple Construction – only a UV lamp with ballast and a fan
  • Low cost – due to simple construction
  • Lower nitric oxide production

DISADVANTAGES OF UV OZONE GENERATOR

  • Low ozone output – g/hr
  • Low ozone concentration – less than 1% by weight
  • Bulbs and ballasts will need to be replaced
