Ozone generated for industrial use is a powerful oxidant that dissolves dirt and germs. After acting, it decomposes and returns to its original state: oxygen (O2). It attacks the microorganisms and destroys them, without leaving behind any strange or dangerous substance to the environment. As ozone decomposes spontaneously and becomes normal oxygen, it is the only disinfectant and decontaminant that does not contribute to the chemical contamination of the environment.
Therefore, ozone has important antiseptic properties and reacts with organic substances that produce odours. In the same way, the microorganisms existing in the air are eliminated, thus avoiding the risk of contagion of diseases.
It is one of the largest disinfectants, which also does not generate any type of chemical waste. It is an efficient and ecological solution for the elimination of pathogens, viruses, bacteria and other contaminants. Using an ozone generator in the long run helps saving money on chemical products and also on the necessary cleaning to eliminate waste.
Ozone exceeds chlorine and bleach
When disinfecting air or water ozone sterilises between 600 to 3,000 times faster and more effectively than chlorine. It is known that chlorine does act effectively on microorganisms and also oxidises non-degraded organic matter and some minerals, but, on the other hand, does not sterilise because although it destroys pathogenic microorganisms it does not end with saprophytes, that is, the remains of matter organic.
Chlorine is widely used, but it is also a toxic halogen gas, which causes serious damage to health in case of contact with significant quantities in its pure state. However, ozone is a gas that ends up dissociating, to return to be oxygen, without causing any damage. In addition, chlorine has a very annoying odour compared to ozone, which is colourless and insipid, and must be stored, while ozone is generated in situ.
As for the lye, it is a very corrosive toxic agent, which can cause burns or irritations in the eyes, the skin, and the respiratory system. If this substance is swallowed, it can cause serious health problems and should never be mixed with ammonia, since the vapors they give off are really harmful. With ozone there is none of these problems and its disinfecting power is much greater than that of the bleach, since ozone is split into oxygen, without the appearance of residues after dissolving it in water. It is an effective, harmless solution, without being aggressive with the fibres of the tissues. Undoubtedly, ozonated water is full of advantages.
