Since the invasion of COVID-19, we have had numerous questions about sanitizing masks and clothes with ozone. So, we thought it might be a good idea to describe how to build a super-simple decontamination box. The process is quick and simple. It starts with buying a large box at you local store. This is the ozone chamber that might be set up in the garage, even in cold weather.
To be clear, we like and use HEPA filters. HEPA filter are fantastic for trapping ultra-small particles, including bacteria. While HEPA filters may incidentally catch virus, but viruses are many times smaller than bacteria and can pass through HEPA filters. One example is microbial threats is comparing bacteria to the size of a man. If bacteria were th3 size of a man, a virus would be the size of a mouse.
Tens of thousands of ozone generators are sold each year. I makes a world of sense that every purchaser should have some ozone generator training. The National Ozone Association offers Basic Ozone Training for the non-professional that wants to use ozone correctly. There is also a Certified Ozone Technician course for those who use ozone generators as part of their service.
One of the most pressing questions when someone is considering buying an ozone generator is the size or volume of ozone output. This industry seems to be driven by extremes. Affordable ozone generators are often too small. Large volume ozone machines are expensive. It is our hope in this article to help drive the decision-making process.
With so many ozone pundits and promoters on the Internet, we were pleased that the National Ozone Association is the trust resource and ozone information resource for the ozone service community.
The concept of ozone is relatively simple. You only need to turn on the machine for a specific length of time and let it do the job of destroying odors, killing mold, sanitizing germs, or cleansing the air. However, there is more to the use of ozone than knowing how to use the on/off switch.
Here's some some reasons why buying your first or next ozone generator is a mistake or a smart decision. Price is one measure of the quality of the ozone generator, but not the major issue. We believe that the "Build" or construction is the best way to make your decision on which system to buy. Unfortunately, most people are not equipped to evaluate the construction, materials, and quality of the unit.
When we survey the field of ozone generators, we see pretty much the same basic system types. The cheap ones are using a cheap version of ozone production. The more expensive ones are using a better construction but the same basic design.
While I am not much for social media, I feel forced into a conscientious decision about where to take my stand. Either we all knuckle under to the mega-media platforms or align with an agenda-free-speech platform.
