The Model CAT-O3 is the IN USA Brand of Teledyne's Ozone Destructs. These are ideal to decompose very high concentration of ozone gas to sub-ppm levels that are well below OSHA's recommended ozone safety guidelines. The method of destruction is catalytic which decomposes passively the ozone (O3) to oxygen (O2). The Ozone decomposes very simply when in contact with the catalytic material which is metal oxide. The ozone molecules are held to the catalyst surface by forces comparable in strength to their own chemical bonds. Those bonds are weakened, and ozone decomposes in an exothermic reaction to form oxygen.
The CAT-O3 series of ozone destructs are made of stainless steel welded enclosure with a protective heat shield mounted around them. They are designed for the most stringent safety performance requirements while offering unmatched advantages.
