MS08 O₃

Dissolved ozone measurement

Ozone treatment is more and more used for the protection of lakes, rivers, drinking water networks, recreational water or even in pharmaceutical and food industries. O3 is a powerful oxidant capable of destroying organic matter and most of pathogens. However, O3 excess revealed to be toxic et lead to corrosion risks. As a result, it is important to control dissolved O3 level in treated water.

Dissolved O3 measurement can be done with 2 probes type:

  • The MS08 device, for a potable or laboratory measurement. This kit contains a data reading box and 2 linked probes. The titanium probe integrates the O<sub!>3 amperometric micro-sensor et the other probe is a temperature sensor.</sub!>
  • The CTD48 system for an online application in the environment. The probe integrates in the head several measuring sensors. The titanium protection cage contains an O3 amperometric micro-sensor, a pH sensor and a temperature sensor. A pressure sensor can also be added. Data measurement are operated by the embedded electronic in the probe’s body.

Measurement principle

Ozone get through the membrane only pervious to gases. The reaction between O3 and the redox catalyst create a product that is then electrochemically oxidized at the working electrode. The generated current resulting from this reaction is proportional to the O3 quantity in the environment.
