Effect of gas source and flowrate to ozone concentration and capacity was investigated using double DBD plasma reactor with cylinder-cylinder configuration. The high AC voltage was applied in the range of 200-500 Volts and the frequency of 50 Hz. Gas sources; i.e. free air and pure oxygen; flowed into the reactor with several variations in flow
rate, i.e. 2 to 24 L/min. The results showed that the ozone concentration decreased with increasing gas flow rate. Free air sources produced smaller ozone concentration and capacity compared to those produced using a pure oxygen source (O2). While the ozone capacity increases with increasing gas flow rate. The pure oxygen (O2) with a flow rate of 24 L/min had produced ozone concentration of 2.2 mg/liter and ozone capacity of 52.8 mg/min. A number of further studies need to be conducted related to the effect of voltage, diameter, and length of the electrode to obtain lower ozone concentration and capacities, for ozone applications in medical therapy. The suitable dose of ozone therapy for medical can be used for wound healing and chronic disease.
