1 In anozone generator, the combination of an elongated, sealed, gas-filled glass-tube having an encircling grid of sharply and longitudinally fiuted,- perforated metal whose innermost points are spaced from the exterior of said tube and having highttensionconnections to the gaseous V filling and toisaid encircling grid.

'2. In an ozone generatorjan elongated, clear,

gas-filled sealed tube having an encircling grid of longitudinally fluted metal of Starshaped transformer I5 must; be of a type which will w a handle the voltage rise due to the conde'nserac} tion of the grid and tube. That istp say, a'l rans former must be employed with' a heavy enough insulation to withstand the tremendous, voltage received by the condenser holding th charge; v
