As you may remember for high school science, water is H2O, meaning two oxygen atoms are stuck to one hydrogen atom. This makes the oxygen less available than the normal O2 in the ambient air. Air conditioning solves the two variables to ozone production: temperature and humidity.
While the EPA has warned about ozone problems, it should be understood that there are hundreds of ozone applications that make our lives better. Every good thing can be abused and misused, and ozone is no different. Knowing that the are mistakes to avoid, there is a need apply ozone in ways that solve problems without introducing a variety of chemicals that are serious pollution issues themselves.
One of the best-known ozone treatments is odor removal. But, there are hundreds of reasons for odors that requires an understanding of odor types and the dynamics of treating different materials.
Ozone treatments have grown in popularity for twenty years. Ozone training is a necessary requirement for any ozone service worker.
There is a lot of promotion of the superiority of the UV ozone generators versus corona ozone generators. Getting a good read on the two types of ozone generators will be helpful. Having been around ozone for a long time and used both types, this quick review may prove helpful to those yet undecided.
To state the issue properly, there are two sides to the question of the smell of ozone. There is the concern for ozone DURING an ozone application, and another aspect for the lingering ozone smell AFTER the room air has been normalized.
When buying an ozone generator, one of the most common and most important questions, is "What size ozone generator is the right size for my application?" This is actually quite a good question. This is more complicated by the actual reality that there are various situations where ozone might be applied.
The idea of shock ozone is the white whale of ozone treatments. While many ozone generators claim to create ozone shock, this process is not easily accomplished and has its potential risks. The National Ozone Association has determined that ozone shock is 10-12 oom or more of ozone saturation.
COVID-19 is another form of the coronavirus that has threatened our world nine times before. This has caused a renewed interest in ozone as a sanitizing and disinfecting process. Ozone has been used in commercial and medical applications to kill all types of pathogens. Even your dentist may be using medical-grade ozone to treat plaque and disease in your gums and treat.
