Effect of Generating Heat on Ozone Generation in Dielectric Cylinder-Cylinder DBD Ozone Generator


A cylinder-cylinder dielectric-barrier discharge (DBD) ozone generator has been developed. The ozone concentration was measured at an oxygen pressure of 1.02 atm and an oxygen flow rate of 12 L/min. The heat generated in the ozone tube during the operation of the ozone generator was investigated using a thermal camera. The infrared (IR) images and corresponding temperatures of the ozone tube surfaces at different operating times were observed. The IR images showed the generating of the inhomogeneous heat-up along the ozone tube surface which results in the decrease of the ozone production efficiency.
