Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are the pillars of the economy in almost all developing countries, including Indonesia. One of the MSMEs products that the government is pushing to enter the export scale is carrageenan. In food products, carrageenan is widely used to form gels in jelly, jam, syrup, sauce, baby food, dairy products, meat, fish seasoning and so on. To support carrageenan products to compete in the regional and global economy and enter the export scale, the product must be in good condition and quality and comply with the mandatory standards required by the export destination country. Sterilization of materials that is usually done is using heat that has been set at a certain temperature. However, sterilization using this method is not recommended for carrageenan food because heat can damage the carrageenan material itself. Therefore, sterilization must be carried out at room temperature, one of which is ozonation using ozone generator. Ozone generator has been made to sterilize samples of carrageenan based on Arduino. Ozone generator is a device that produces ozone by corona discharge method. This tool has 2 modes of operation namely manual and automatic. Ozone reactors are made with a type of dielectric barrier discharge plasma. The ozone concentration is generated by varying the voltage from (3-28) kV and flow rate variations of 3, 6, and 9 L/min. The ozone reactor used as an ozone generator has a cylindrical skeleton configuration. The inner electrode is made of threaded iron, while the outer electrode is made of aluminum foil reel and the dielectric material used is pyrex. The reactor is given a high voltage AC with frequencies ranging from (1-10) kHz. To determine the ozone concentration produced by the reactor, the resulting ozone is detected and measured using an ozone meter.
