Oxygen concentrators and air driers are often needed in Aquaculture to pre-treat the gas flowing into ozone generators.
Oxygen concentrators are a versatile and reliable way to add oxygen to aquaculture systems, and oxygen concentrators are highly beneficial when operating ozone generators. By drying the air alone the performance of an ozone generator is increased above using atmospheric air, and by concentrating the air you can improve ozone output in both volume and concentration by up to 5 fold.
By adding concentrated oxygen to either an oxygenation stream of an ozone generator, it creates a better transfer into the contact vessel, contact vessels do not need to be as big (as gas flow is reduced compared to use air) and under high pressures, there is no concern of nitrogen supersaturation.
Pure Aquatics have also developed a dual chamber air drier that has a fine pleated cartridge and a indicating dessicant media for removing moisture for placing before ozone generators and as an optional upgrade to oxygen concentrators to extend their service life and improve performance.
Oxygen concentrators and air driers should always be utilised for effective long term production of oxygen and ozone.
