Ozone Leak Monitor
Ozone Leak Monitor Ozone Leak Detection is an inevitable part of operating any long term ozone system. As with any toxic gas used for industrial and commercial applications eventually fittings, piping, and parts will eventually fail, allowing that toxic gas, in this case ozone, to leak. What makes ozone slightly more challenging is the difficulty to measure ozone. Ozone detectors have to measure a oxidant that is slowly destroying the very sensor intended for finding the ozone gas. The short half life of ozone is also challenging.
Ozone is being applied for water treatment in a number of applications such as swimming pools, potable and wastewater treatment, water bottling, carwashes and laundries. Often these ozone systems are engineered without thought to monitoring for dangerous levels of ozone in the immediate area.
If ozone monitoring equipment is designed into the original system, often operators have little idea how to interpret results and to care for the monitoring equipment. Unfortunately, operators often deal with leak monitoring mostly in a crisis mode when an inspector shows up.
