Ozone Generation by Pulsed Streamer Discharge in Air

Zolkafle Buntat, Ivor R. Smith, Noor. A. M. Razali


Ozone is well established as an important oxidising agent in many industrial applications and the high-voltage pulsed
streamer discharge technique has emerged as an efficient method for its production. The paper investigates the
parameters that are important in this process, including the magnitude of the applied pulse voltage, the air flow rate and
the electrode dimensions and spacing, when used in a plate-to-plate reactor configuration in which sheets of perforated
aluminium are employed to enhance the degree of ionisation and soda lime glass dielectric barriers both to inhibit
singular discharges and to promote the development of the streamer discharge. The highest ozone concentration
achieved was 5995 ppmv and the greatest yield was 144 g/kWh.
