Destruction of residual ozone in the pharmaceutical industry
In microelectronics and the pharmaceutical industry, ozone is increasingly being used for the disinfection and cold sanitisation of ultrapure water storage and distribution systems. However, prior to its use in the process, this ozone must be destroyed. Thereby, the annihilation of residual ozone by applying UV is the ideal apporach. Radiators are applied that solely emit a wave length of 254nm. Ozone-forming radiators (see TOC degradation) must not be used.
