CONNECTORS AND TUBING FOR OZONE EQUIPMENT
Every ozone equipment setup consists of the following 3 parts:
oxygen + ozone generator + accessories.
For most treatments the oxygen source and ozone generator will remain the same and only the accessories will change.
If you want to switch from one treatment to another, for example from doing ozone saunas to rectal insufflations (RI), you just need to change whatever accessory you put in position 3 of the picture above. So in the given example, you would replace the ozone sauna with a bag and a catheter (which are needed to perform RI).
How is everything connected?
How is the oxygen tank attached to the ozone generator and the generator to for example a catheter?
In general, everything is connected via tubing.
Usually, there are two different kinds of tubing used with ozone equipment: 1) clear PVC tubing which is used for parts of the setup which do not get in contact with ozone, and 2) silicone tubing which is used to connect the ozone output with the given accessory.
PVC is generally used to connect the oxygen source (tank or concentrator) with the ozone generator. So the tubing goes from the oxygen outlet on the oxygen source to the “oxygen in” inlet on the ozone generator. PVC tubing is clear.
Silicone tubing goes from the “ozone out” outlet on the ozone generator to the given accessory which supplies the ozone to the human body. Silicone tubing has a milky color.
Can I use silicone tubing instead of PVC to connect the oxygen tank with the ozone generator?
Yes, you can.You can use silicone tubing to connect every piece of your ozone equipment.
The reasons for using PVC tubing is a) the part between oxygen source and ozone generator does not get in contact with ozone hence it does not require highly ozone resistant material like silicone, and b) it tends to be cheaper than silicone.
Additionally to tubing, there are connectors.
Different ozone equipment manufacturers use different connectors. There can be luer lock, quick, barb, or other type of connectors. Some parts can be hooked up without additional connectors. Having the right connectors at hand is important for correctly putting together ozone equipment.
