The OVS Ozone Gas Destruct unit is designed to safely convert high levels of ozone into oxygen by use of a catalyst, reducing the ozone level down to detection limit - well below safety thresholds. The catalyst material is contained within a robust stainless steel cylinder. Due to the exothermal reaction, the stainless steel cylinder can get hot. In order to protect personnel and the environment from the hot cylinder surface, the cylinder is contained within a secondary exterior shell.
For moist ozone gas applications, such as after contacting ozone gas with water, the OVS can be supplied with optional heating. The heating ensures that the temperature is maintained above dew point at all times and thus avoids condensation of water vapor in the catalyst material.
