Project Description

ELAP – Electrolytic ozone generator

For continuous disinfection of cold storage and distribution systems for ultrapure water.

Electrolytic ozone generator for continuous or discrete disinfection of cold storage and distribution systems for ultrapure water (systemic protection). Ozone is generated directly from ultrapure water. The design of the ELAP allows reliable, fully automatic operation with low maintenance. The electrolytic ozone generation guarantees an efficient solution of ozone and high ozone concentration in water without costly supply of a certified feed gas. Additional information regarding the process technology can be found in the current ISPE Guideline “Ozone Sanitization of Pharmaceutical Water Systems”.

The ozone generator consists of a power supply and a separate electrolysis stainless steel and PTFE cell.

  • galvanically isolated, short-circuit-proof power supply with color LCD touchscreen
  • fanless design enables silent operation
  • upgradeable through modular design
  • fast maintenance and replacement of components possible
  • power supply is downward compatible to all former versions of the ozone cell (1, 2, 3 and 4 gO3/h)
  • configurable alarm outputs
  • automatic logging of operation parameters and alarms
  • cell unit with 7 internal sensors and LCD display
  • new cell design with increased ozone output of 5 gO3/h
  • extensive process monitoring through safe-logic

Applications:

  • PW/AP (Purified water / Aqua purificata)
  • HPW (High purified water / Aqua valde purificata)
  • WFI (Water for injection / Aqua ad injectabilia)
  • and similar process water qualities for e.g. cosmetic-, semiconductor-industry as well as bio- and medical-technology

ELAP i1 series

Are ELAP units upgradable?

Yes, every ELAP unit can be upgraded to the maximum yield of 5 gO3/h. This is independand from the initial configuration. It is also possible to upgrade a Slave unit to a Master unit.

Both upgrades can be installed on-site.

What happens when a unit fails within a Master/Slave combination?

Every ELAP i1 unit within a combination functions independently. Should a unit have a failure the other ozone generators remain unaffected. Even if a Master unit within a combination has a failure you can still operate the others using either external PLC or via the emergency backup displays.

If the ozone generators are normally working with reduced yield it is possible to compensate for the missing unit in many cases by increasing the power of the remaining units.
