CHINESE "BARE BONES" OZONE GENERATOR A FIRE HAZARD

CHINESE "BARE BONES" OZONE GENERATOR A FIRE HAZARD

October 11, 2016

CHINESE

We knew eventually the Chinese would try to copy our "open air" or "bare bones" design, and finally, they did.  However, their attempt to create a "bare bones" ozone generator is an epic fail. The unit sits flush on the heat sink (ours sit sideways for proper cooling) and this causes their transformers to get very hot.  They also decided it was a good idea to attach high voltage wires to the plastic mounts and to cement the red high voltage wires to the ozone plates.  What happens when it's time to change the plate? What happens if the red wire comes loose? What happens when the high voltage causes the plastic to catch fire?  Their design is very flawed and presents a fire hazard, (picture was taken from Amazon review complaining the unit burnt up after only one use) 

Our latest design, the solid-state ozone generator with embedded plate holder, was invented for 2 reasons. One, the shorter the distance between the ozone plate and the transformer the better for electricity loss, but getting rid of the 2 red high voltage wires we were able to up the actual power of the transformers.  Secondly, safety.  The two red high voltage wires, if they touch, and cause a fire hazard.  If the solder (or in with some others such as this one ..cement) comes loose from the plate or white base, that live wire also presents a fire hazard. Those things are not an issue with our proprietary design. The high voltage wires are within the transformer.   

 Given the nature of the beast, these types of ozone generators cannot be stopped from being sold in the USA, but let's hope if someone does utilize these devices, they place them on concrete and they don't run them for very long.
