The instrument permits to set the test conditions in order to comply with international standard methods.

The Instruments permits the regulation of:
• Ozone Concentration, between 10 and 500 pphm (UV absorption detector);
• Test temperature, between ambient +5°C and +70°C;
• Air Flow in the Test Chamber, between 1 and 3 air changes/minute;
• Relative Humidity, between 40 and 90% (optional).

Key Features 
• Automatic regulation of Ozone Concentration, Temperature, Air Flow and Relative Humidity (optional)
• Performance of Static or Dynamic tests
• UV-absorption Ozone detector
• Stainless steel cylindrical test chamber for homogeneous ozone distribution
• Generation and shooting down of the Ozone in closed circuit (no exhaust evacuation needed)
• CE labelling
OzoneCheck_10 Software 
The program allows you to:
• Prepare customized test procedures by defining the test parameters (ozone concentration, temperature, number of air changes, duration of the test, concentration of humidity).
• Automatically adjust the instrument according to the parameters of the selected test procedure
• Display the Curves of the ozone concentration, humidity and temperature over time.
• Save test curves and images imported into Gibitre's SQL database.

Test report 
Can be printed or saved to pdf in one of the available languages. The format of the Test Report can be customized by the user.

Example of test Report
Test Procedures 
The Test procedures define the test conditions relating to:
• Ozone concentration
• Test temperature
• Air flow rate
• Duration of the test
• Relative humidity concentration (optional)

When a test procedure is selected, the instrument adjustment is done completely automatically.

It is possible to copy and modify the predefined Test Procedures or prepare completely customized ones through the Datagest program (installed together with the OzoneCheck program).

UV Ozone Detector 
The Ozone concentration measurement device via UV sensor is conforming to ISO 1431-3 and ASTM D4575 standards.
The device:
• Continuously detects the concentration of ozone inside the test chamber
• Performs a self-calibration every 30 seconds by comparing the measurement of the ozonated air with pure air
• Regulates the generation of ozone in the test chamber by means of a PID control ensuring that the test conditions are reached within the times established by the standard and minimizing oscillations.

The device can be supplied with a direct calibration certificate issued by an accredited laboratory.
Regulation of Relative Humidity 
Humidity control system to regulate the Relative Humidity in test chamber between 40 and 90%. This option permits to test ozone resistance in presence of humidity. The device includes suitable refrigerating unit and a cold steam generator.
Test Chamber 
Gibitre Ozone Tester is the only instrument with a cylindrical test chamber with symmetrical air extraction by means of a double-chamber. This unique feature ensures a homogeneous distribution of ozonized air inside the chamber that could not be obtained with a cubic chamber. The chamber is made of stainless steel. The instrument has an inspection windows in the front with two lights on the sides which permit to inspect the samples during the test without need of stopping the test and removing the samples from the chamber.

Safety Devices 
• The instrument automatically locks the opening of the instrument when the ozone concentration exceeds 10 pphm to prevent undesired contact with ozonized air.
• The generation and shooting down of the Ozonized airflow is made in closed circuit in order to meet safety requirements and to render an aspiration system unnecessary.
• Safety sensors protect the instrument from excessive temperature and humidity due to incorrect set.
• Safety Push-button
• The instrument is supplied with CE Labelling

Support for Static test in traction  
• Sample holder for the static strain of 2-4 samples with adjustable distance of the grips.
• Static test piece holder with planetary effect, in compliance with ISO 1431-1 standard. It moves the test pieces over the whole volume of the chamber for a more homogeneous ozone atmosphere exposition.
Up to 64 samples (with 10 mm width) can be tested at the same time with the device.
Support for Static test in traction of Rubber Hoses 
Sample holders for tests on rubber hoses according to ISO 7326-method 1 and 2
Support for dynamic test 
In compliance with ISO 1431, ASTM D1149 and SAE J1401. To be inserted into test chamber for the study of ozone resistance of cured rubber under dynamic conditions (from 3 to 30 cycles/min - 0.05 to 0.5 Hz).
Up to 10 samples can be tested at the same time
Continuation of the Test after unwanted interruption 
The instrument continuously stores the working conditions. After an electrical black out, the user can restart the program and continue the interrupted test.

Standard Calibration service for Ozone Cabinet 
The calibration is performed with reference to the requirements of ISO 1431 standard.
The service includes:
• Ordinary maintenance of the instrument
• Complete cleaning of the Ozone Detector with replacement of the internal filters.
• Calibration of the temperature inside the test chamber (40°C).
• Calibration of the Ozone Concentration inside the test chamber (at 50 pphm, 100 pphm, 150 pphm, 200 pphm).
• Calibration of the time for reaching ozone concentration set (NEW)
• Calibration of the relative Humidity inside the chamber at 50% and 75% (Only for instruments with humidity control)
• Final check of the correct working of the instrument.
• Issue and e-mail shipment of the Calibration Certificate with traceability to primary standards.

How to convert pphm ozone concentration into Mpa ?
The differences in atmospheric pressure can influence the effective ozone concentration, and hence the result, when the ozone concentration is expressed in parts per billion (or parts per hundred million) by volume. This effect can be eliminated by expressing the ozone content of the ozonized air in terms of the partial pressure of ozone, i.e. in millipascals, and making comparisons at constant ozone partial pressure. Under standard conditions of atmospheric pressure and temperature (101kPa, 273K), an ozone concentration of 10ppb is equivalent to an ozone partial pressure of 1,01mPa. For further guidance, please refer to ISO 1431-3.
