Ozone

CARULITE® 200 granular catalysts are used to effectively destroy ozone emitted from various off-gas emissions, converting toxic ozone to oxygen. The versatility and effectiveness of CARULITE® 200 granular catalysts make it the benchmark technology for destruction of toxic and corrosive emissions of ozone. Ambient temperature destruction of ozone coupled with long catalyst lifetime provides a cost-effective solution to the problem of ozone emissions.

Water Off-Gas

Ozone in the upper atmosphere protects us from harmful radiation, but excess ozone in the air we breathe causes serious health problems, corrodes most metals, and damages most plastics. CARULITE® 200 granular catalyst converts ozone into oxygen through a catalytic reaction. CARULITE® 200 catalysts are not consumed by ozone and have an extensive lifetime, normally several years.

Catalytic destruction of ozone with CARULITE® 200 granular catalyst is more cost effective than thermal destruction of ozone, due to lower energy costs and less expensive materials of construction. CARULITE® 200 granular catalyst is used successfully in thousands of installations worldwide to meet stringent ozone off-gas discharge limits.

Corona Off-Gas

CARULITE® 200 granular catalyst is used to destroy ozone off-gas produced in corona treating applications.

CARULITE® 200 granular catalyst converts ozone into oxygen through a catalytic reaction and is not consumed by ozone, providing a long lifetime. Activated carbon, an alternative technology, chemically reacts with ozone and requires continual replacement. Another disadvantage of carbon is that it generates carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide and can be a fire hazard with high ozone concentrations.

Digital Printers/Commercial Air Filters

CARULITE® 200 granular catalyst is used to destroy ozone produced in commercial digital printing applications. Ozone in the air we breathe causes serious health problems. Ozone also destroys expensive printing equipment because it corrodes most metals and damages most plastics.

Another disadvantage of carbon is that it generates carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide and can be a fire hazard with high ozone concentrations.

CARULITE® 400 powder catalyst can also be used in printers and commercial air filters to effectively destroy ozone. The CARULITE® 400 catalyst is coated onto a metallic, ceramic or cellulose substrate. Off-gas ozone is then passed through the CARULITE® 400 catalyst monolithic filters, where it is converted to oxygen.
