Near-Earth Ozone

Near-Earth Ozone

Ozone is produced in nature by strong sunlight from nitrogen oxides contained in the air.
It also occurs as a "by-product" of high voltage or electric sparks applications such as during electric welding, in photocopiers, laser laboratories and high voltage laboratories, in electric power installations, with electric railways and in systems with ultraviolet light.

One can also artificially generate ozone with ozone generators, but it cannot be saved and filled in bottles as it is possible with other gases because it decays after some time into to oxygen.
This feature has an advantage over the use of chlorine for a range of applications in industry, in the laboratory and also in households.

Ozone is used for example for sterilizing and cleaning the air we breathe in air conditioning systems in hospitals, nursing homes, airports, restaurants, casinos, bars, animal and poultry farms. It also has an odour-neutralizing effect, which is beneficial i.e. for fire damage redevelopment.
In food preparation, storage and distribution its sterilizing and preservative properties are used.

Because ozone as a powerful oxidizing agent is harmful to health in high concentrations and with prolonged exposure, i.e. attacking the lungs, there are limit values which are between 0.05 and 0.1 ppm ozone.
To check whether these values meet the compliance targets, there are the ozone monitors, ozone measuring instruments and ozone analyzers made by Eco Sensors.
Furthermore, there are ozone controllers indicating the measured values with a switching output for controlling the output concentration of ozone generators.
