The plumb-and-play OZ80 ozone analyzer features a reagent-less design for low operating costs and offers a choice of three factory-calibrated measurement ranges designed to help busy process and plant engineers achieve accurate measurement with a simple, easy-to-install system that can be up and running in less than 15 minutes.
Unlike conventional analyzers that come with multiple components that must be installed and then require field calibration, the OZ80 analyzer is factory-assembled and factory-calibrated prior to arriving at the plant. All the technician needs to do is mount the panel and connect the drain lines, plug in the power cord, and select the outputs on the display as 0 to 2.0 ppm for water disinfection or 0 to 20.00 ppm for oxidation and bleaching operations.
Dual-range measurement of both ozone (O3) parameters also is available with the OZ80 analyzer. O3 is a colorless to pale blue gas that in low concentrations gives off an irritating acidic odor. It is a strong oxidizer—stronger than either chlorine or chlorine dioxide. It reacts quickly and disintegrates into oxygen gas without the formation of harmful disinfection byproducts common to chlorine disinfectants that require additional costly treatment. It also increases the amount of oxygen in the water.
O3 is widely used in municipal drinking water and wastewater treatment plants. It is useful at several points in the drinking water treatment process as an oxidizer for removing metals from well water, as well as organics, odors and color from surface water. Industrial uses for O3 include food and beverage processing, pulp and paper manufacturing, and as a bactericide for industrial cooling towers used in electric power generation, oil and gas refining, and petrochemical production.
