As a result of various studies and experiments with ozone technologies, it has been understood and accepted that ozone can be used as a strong oxidizer, as a deodorizer, germicidal, and destructor of many organic molecules that pollute the environment.
Ozone eliminates air pollution and bad odors in the environment. Ozone collapses dust in living and working areas and kills microbes in the environment. It is a very effective disinfectant. In this way, it creates a healthy environment and gives people a feeling of freshness and vitality. It allows you to think better and to keep your concentration in your work.
The most important feature of ozone is that it is completely natural, although it is a very effective disinfectant. Ozone leaves no residue, it is not a chemical component. Ozone is a product of nature's natural cycle, and is an economical solution that is both healthier and cheaper than other disinfectants with many side effects, thanks to this feature.
With these properties, ozone is of great importance for many sectors.
Advantages of Ozone Gas Compared to Other Disinfectants
Ozone is a gas with very high oxidation power and is the strongest known disinfectant.
Its high oxidation force causes ozone to play a fully effective role in the destruction of bacteria.
The disinfection effect of ozone gas is 3125 times greater than that of chlorine under the same conditions. It is more effective than chlorine against spores, cysts and viruses.
In addition, since ozone is obtained by breaking down the oxygen in the air, it always turns into oxygen, which is its raw material, after completing its disinfection task due to its unstable structure.
The fact that ozone gas is the only disinfectant that does not leave any residue or residue after disinfection makes it more advantageous than other disinfectants, especially in the food industry.
Technical properties of ozone:
Ozone is superior to other disinfectants with its high oxidation power. Although it is 25 times more effective than hydrochloric acid (hocl), 2500 times than hypochlorite (ocl), and 5000 times more than chlorine (nh2cl), it does not produce waste and harmful substances like them.
Ozone is natural and has no side effects as it turns back into oxygen after a short time.
After the O2 molecule in the air is broken down into 2 oxygen atoms with high energy, it reacts with another O2 molecule to form an unstable molecule. This new molecule is ozone. This unstable structure gives it a superior oxidation power. Due to its unstable structure, it destroys unwanted organics such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold, and iron, manganese, chlorine, nitrite, etc. It also oxidizes the substances and removes them from the environment.
