Generators for Water Purification
Ozone is unstable and must be created at the time you wish to
use it. It is so unstable, that 30 minutes after you have made
it, only half of it remains. Where does the Ozone (O3) go? Nowhere,
it simply turns back into Oxygen (O2). So, if you want to use
ozone to ozonated your drinking water, hot tub, swimming pool,
or use it for other purification procedures you need to make
it yourself from oxygen.
If you are going to use ozone for water purification, you can
usually get the oxygen from the air. Air is 78% Nitrogen, 21%
Oxygen, and 1% trace gases (such as Argon).
some ozone applications might require that you make higher
concentrations of ozone, which means you
will need to
start with higher concentrations of oxygen such as 100% oxygen
from an oxygen tank. (Note: If you want to make Medical Grade
Ozonated Water for Health Benefits, Burns, Sterilizing etc. you
need to use purified oxygen, not air. See the article Ozonated
Water). Oxygen tanks hold 99% pure oxygen and are available from
either welding shops or through a prescription from your doctor.
Bottled oxygen should only be used with ozone generators that
were designed to be fed with purified bottled oxygen. Never try
to feed your ozone generator with oxygen if it was designed to
be fed with ‘air’ or the results could be disaster.
many different types of ozone generators available on the market
today. They all make ozone using different technologies,
and they all produce different amounts of ozone. Not every ozone
generator will be able to do what you want it to do, so if you
are shopping for an ozone generator make sure you are buying
the proper type, and one that creates the proper amount of ozone.
Each ozone application on this list requires different levels
or concentrations of ozone:
one glass of ozonated water to drink (requires lower levels of
a gallon of water. (requires higher levels of ozone)
ozonated water that still has ozone in it (“Medical
Ozonated Water” requires very high levels of ozone and
therefore the use of oxygen as a feed gas, and a ‘medical’ ozone
You also need to think about how much ozone you want in the
water. Do you want to just ensure that the bacteria and viruses
have been killed in the water? Or do you want to ensure all of
the volatile organic and possibly toxic compounds have been destroyed
in the water? Perhaps you want both of those things to happen
but you also want there to be ozone remaining in the water when
you actually drink it? All three of these examples require different
levels of ozone, ranging from relatively low levels of ozone
coming from the ozone generator to very high levels of ozone.
There are many different reasons for ozonating water, and there
are many different ozone generators on the market. Decide what
you want to do with the ozone, then research your choice of ozone
generators carefully before making your purchase.
