Ozone Generated by Organ Blower Motor
By Ed Copeland

I have heard that there are different types of ozone.  My question,
is the ozone created by an ozone generator, and the ozone created by
electric motors the same?

We have a 1-1/2 hp Spencer blower, which "lives" near several player
and reproducing pianos.  I have been thinking that I should put in some
sort of venting to exhaust the ozone, which builds up in the blower area
to the outside.  The way it is now it just builds up in the closet in
which the blower is installed in, and then flows into the adjacent
bedroom, which has a door to the room with the players in it.  We don't
play the organ for long periods (well, not as long as they do at pizza
restaurants) but I suppose any amount over a long period is bad.

Any thoughts?

 [ The brushes of the repulsion-start, induction-run organ blower
 [ motor should retract, within a few seconds, after the motor reaches
 [ running speed.  If they don't retract and cease sparking, something
 [ is wrong.  There is only one type of ozone and it tries to oxidize
 [ everything it contacts.  Fortunately, within a few minutes ozone
 [ breaks down from reactive O3 into ordinary O2 oxygen gas.
