What is the efficiency of UV lamp in ozone generation (Ozone g vs. energy consumed )
I read a lot of papers from the Internet on using UV lamp for generating ozone but none discussed the efficiency of such process.
How much energy (kWh) gets consumed by UV lamp to generate 1g of ozone ?
I read Ozone Formation from UV Light https://www.oxidationtech.com/ozone/ozone-production.html#answer2
and related web links and all I get as pros and cons is:
" Ozone production from UV light for commercial applications Advantages of UV Ozone Generator
Simple Construction – only a UV lamp with ballast and a fan Low cost – due to simple construction Lower nitric oxide production
Disadvantages of UV Ozone Generator
Low ozone output – g/hr Low ozone concentration – less than 1% by weight Bulbs and ballasts will need to be replaced
Let me know your opinion
