How Ozone is Produced?
Ozone Production from Smog
Ozone is formed at ground level by a chemical reaction between Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) and/or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and UV rays from sunlight. The difference between this unhealthy ozone production and commercial ozone production, or natural ozone production in our ozone layer, is that ozone production from smog is an unhealthy cycle that is hard to break. In ozone production from smog the air quality is altered long term, ozone does not simply break down into harmless oxygen, but instead recombines to form NO2 in the atmosphere and re-start the unhealthy cycle again. See image below for example.
How to Test Ozone Generator Performance?
Ozone generators are sized based on the amount of ozone they produce. This article intends to help you understand how to test the production of your ozone generator machine .
There are different methods used, and different equipment required for measuring production from each of these styles of ozone generators. Both methods are covered in the linked instructions. Below are some details on each, this should help you understand the right instructions to use for your ozone generator.

How to read Ozone Generator performance charts
Every ozone generator has ratings to describe the output of ozone in relation to other ozone generators. These ratings are derived from performance testing of an ozone generator. When ozone generators are tested a Performance Chart should be created to understand the performance of that ozone generator across the full scale of normal operation.The chart below is an example of an ozone generator performance chart. This is the format we use at Oxidation Tech, you may have a different chart with a different format, however many of the same fundamentals will be the same.
Ozone Generator Performance Chart Defined
Importance of an ozone generator performance chart
Ozone generator performance must be measured and tested to quantify the production of ozone. For most applications, ozone production is the number one factor in choosing an ozone generator for that application. Therefore, it is imperative a reliable performance chart be reviewed prior to the purchase of any device that may produce ozone.
