Gas mixing deals with fine margins. Slight inaccuracies can thus have major implications, rendering a blend unfit for purpose. This is especially common in calibration mixtures where concentrations must be exact.
Inconsistencies have the potential to render quality assurance and control (QA/QC) protocols invalid. In the worst-case scenario, inaccurate gas mixes can pose risks to both human health and the environment. As a result, selecting the most reliable and accurate equipment for gas blending operations is crucial.
One such device is the photometer-controlled ozone generator. This article presents the advantages of employing this specific type of generator for ozone gas mixtures.
Precision in Ozone Concentration Measurements
The heart of a photometer-controlled ozone generator lies in its calibrated photometer and mass flow controller. These ensure that the ozone concentration measurements are consistently accurate.
The photometer’s role is crucial as it measures the exact amount of ozone produced and delivers feedback to the system.
Air quality monitoring technicians require reliable measurements. These ozone generators have a closed-loop PID control system to ensure that system errors are quickly resolved. This means that the generator’s performance continues to be top-notch, even over extended periods.
The user-friendly software interface, combined with plain language prompts, ensures that the system is easy to navigate and reduces the learning curve. This translates to reduced technician training time and significantly reduced potential errors.
Stability in ozone generation is attained via the internal ultra-violet (UV) based generator. This generator is temperature-controlled and includes a precision photo-optical feedback circuit. The end result is compensation for lamp aging effects as well as consistently stable ozone generation.
The photometer-controlled ozone generator’s pressure compensation capability is a standout feature. This capability ensures that the ozone generation remains stable and consistent, even at pressures that differ from that of the original calibration.
External Analysis: A Dual Advantage
Particular advanced models, such as the Environics Series 6103 and 6113, have a further advantage — they enable the analysis of an external source of ozone, and for this to be displayed directly on the screen. This dual functionality facilitates simultaneous gas blending while closely monitoring the ozone concentration.
The Photometer-Controlled Advantage
The photometer-controlled ozone generator provides unmatched accuracy, unwavering reliability, unparalleled stability, a user-centric design, and a unique pressure compensation feature. This makes it the ideal device for applications that require precise ozone concentration measurements.
