General Information on O3 – Ozone
Ozone is a molecule (O3) composed of three oxygen atoms (O) with a characteristic odor. Ozone molecules in the air decompose back to oxygen (O2) within a few days under normal conditions. Ozone is a powerful and toxic oxidant that can cause irritation of the respiratory tract and eyes and favor respiratory diseases in humans and animals. Ozone is used for cleaning and sterilization of surfaces. Ozone can be produced by low pressure plasmas and by electrical discharge.
Gas Sensors for the Detection of O3
RITTER »MultiGas« Combined Modules NDIR + NDUV
RITTER »MultiGas« Modules can also be a combination of both NDIR sensors and NDUV sensors on a common board. With this unit, up to 3 gas components can be measured simultaneously. The basic electronics can supply IR and UV radiation sources with different frequencies for 0 Hz (DC) to 100 Hz (AC). This system is an ideal tool for detecting multi-component gas at low ppm levels.
Please note: For technical and chemical reasons, not every combination of gases/measuring ranges can be analyzed/measured in a single or combined RITTER »MultiGas« module. As this is a rather complex topic, please do not hesitate to contact one of our gas experts first.
