Innovative Ozone Engineering
DEL Ozone’s world leading, innovative engineering staff is the foundation for DEL’s well-deserved reputation for manufacturing ozone systems that are the most reliable and effective systems available. DEL’s engineers are highly experienced in the specific requirements of ozone technology, accumulating almost a dozen ozone patents over the years. The innovation and technology that make DEL ozone systems the best is continuous – you can always look to DEL to find the frontiers of ozone sanitation applications.
All DEL products are engineered with real world use in mind. They take into account safety requirements and regulations as well as sanitation demands. DEL Ozone systems have earned UL, NSF, TUV, CE c-tick and EPA approval, to name a few.
DEL Delivers Turnkey Systems
DEL builds ozone sanitation systems. DEL Ozone systems are designed and built with specific types of applications in mind, taking into account the operating conditions, sanitation requirements, operator safety, control system requirements, cost and reliability to create optimal sanitation systems for the application.
The most basic objective of any ozone sanitation systems is to produce ozone reliably, in the proper amount, delivered in the most efficient way to achieve the disinfection objectives. Therefore, DEL builds ozone generators that produce from 0.03 to 1200 grams of ozone per hour, integrated into systems that deliver sanitation and disinfection in the correct way to maximize impact. All of these systems are built with high-quality, corrosion and ozone-resistant materials designed to provide many years of performance.
In the case of larger systems (above 45 grams of ozone per hour), DEL requires commissioning by a DEL service representative to ensure system effectiveness, safety and reliability. In many cases, larger systems are customized to a greater or lesser degree to match the exact requirements of the customer’s sanitation needs.
An Outline of DEL's Innovation Cycle
Innovation isn’t entirely predictable. Sometimes the stimulus for a breakthrough is from performance feedback and sometimes from a customer's special requirements. You can see how the process works at DEL with a quick overview of the innovation cycle DEL follows in creating new applications.
Concept: A potential ozone sanitation breakthrough evolves from DEL’s continuous program of improvement of existing products. Even though DEL has dominated the high-quality ozone sanitation market for years, we continuously look for ways to produce better outcomes and better reliability at a lower cost. New design concepts are taken seriously until we can prove they don't improve outcomes.
Competing innovations: DEL engineers envision a number of implementation / engineering options to incorporate the new design concept.
Feasibility: After eliminating the obvious weaker designs, the remaining designs are subjected to feasibility evaluation. Designs are subjected to rigorous engineering analysis to determine which ones are most likely to meet specifications for effectiveness in the application, with improved cost and reliability outcomes.
Lab testing: The leading designs are created as physical prototypes for testing in DEL’s state of the art lab. Each design is subjected to rigorous tests for ozone output, stability and reliability, durability, energy consumption, and materials quality of the core components, as well as manufacturing feasibility.
Refinement: A winning design is chosen and its prototypes begin undergoing refinements in stages. At the end of this long process, a finalized design is chosen, including materials specifications needed for manufacturing.
Continuous testing: At this point, even with a finalized design ready for manufacturing, DEL continues to test the new model. Dozens or even hundreds of the final design models are tested over time, taking careful measurement of ozone output, energy consumption, and the stability of operational parameters.
DEL Ozone engineering is innovative, experienced, systematic, and persistent. The result is the highest quality line of ozone sanitation applications in the world.
