Ozone is sometimes called "activated oxygen". It is the triatomic form of oxygen that we breathe in its diatomic form. Ozone is the second most powerful disinfectant in the world and safely removes odors without residue.
Interestingly, ozone occurs quite frequently in nature, e.g. from a lightning strike during a thunderstorm. In fact, that " spring rain" smell we notice after a thunderstorm results from the natural production of ozone. Ozone is probably more familiar in the context of the ozone layer that envelops our planet. This ozone is produced by the sun's ultraviolet rays. It protects us from the sun's UV rays and acts as a UV filter.
Yes, by the smell. Ozone is an invisible gas with a characteristic odor. A particularly sensitive human nose can possibly detect ozone at a concentration of 0.0076 parts per million (ppm), but at the latest at 0.03 ppm everyone should be able to smell ozone. In comparison, the air quality limit for harmlessness is 0.06 ppm. This means that ozone can be smelled before it reaches an unhealthy concentration. At elevated concentrations above 0.06 ppm, ozone may begin to smell unpleasant to sensitive noses. The big advantage, in rooms with increased concentration nobody would stay voluntarily for a long time. It would be completely natural to leave the room. .
Although ozone is a very strong oxidant, it has a very short life span. In the process of odor elimination, the extra oxygen atom is also consumed. The use of ozone is safe because we can smell ozone even in very low concentrations. So, if ozone is released during cleaning, it would be noticed immediately because the smell of ozone at a concentration of 1.5 ppm is considered so disgusting that we would be able to stand it for a long time in such an environment. It is just as if we were entering a room full of smoke.
Practically all areas of application have something to do with cleaning, hygiene, sterilisation, disinfection or odour control in air or water. Therefore, the range of ozone is a large field of application.
Once ozone has been formed by the generator and is discharged into the room, a portion immediately decays back to oxygen. This process is caused by the more natural decay of the chemical instability of ozone. The process just mentioned is accelerated by the presence of walls, wallpaper, etc. Neutralization of odor by organic material also removes ozone. Moreover, ozone has a short half-life, which means that within a maximum of 30 minutes the ozone content in the treated room is halved. This in turn means that after each additional 30 minute period there will be half as much ozone left as there was at the beginning of the 30 minute period. This is similar to a degression of 16; 8; 4; 2; 1. In practice, the half-life is usually less than 30 minutes, due to bacterial and other contaminants in the air. Consequently, ozone, although very powerful, does not last long in indoor air.
Yes! Ozone can kill bacteria, fungi and mold spores in the air and on surfaces. This eliminates the most common causes of food spoilage. Some foods are treated directly, some are treated only in the surrounding air during storage, processing, protective atmosphere
Ozone is very reactive and has a half-life of about 30 minutes. Thus, the ozone level decreases very quickly. The treated rooms must not be entered for at least 6 hours after the end of the ozone generator's runtime and then ventilated for another 2 hours.
When treating vehicles, the ozone generator should be placed in the passenger footwell. The ventilation should be set to recirculation and level 1. In the case of a sedan, it is important to fold down the rear seat bench so that the ozone also reaches the trunk. Please treat cars with ozone only outdoors and lock it so that nobody opens the car during the treatment. After the treatment, please wait for 1 hour and then ventilate the vehicle well for 2 hours. Please read the handling instructions for motor vehicles.
