Innovative Ozone Engineering

DEL’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 ozone systems available. DEL’s engineers are highly experienced in the specific requirements of ozone technology, and have accumulated multiple ozone patents over the years.

All DEL products are engineered with real world use in mind. They take into account safety requirements and regulations as well as sanitizing demands. DEL systems have earned UL, NSF, TUV, CE, EPA and various other third party approvals to ensure efficacy and public safety. 

 

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 the following quick overview of the innovation cycle DEL follows in creating new applications.

Concept:  A potential ozone sanitizing breakthrough evolves from DEL’s continuous program of improvement of existing products. Even though DEL has dominated the high-quality ozone sanitizer 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.
