Glass Lined Ozone Generator System
Just to set the stage, all non-medical corona ozone generators use metal screens or plates to produce ozone from the air. Ozone exists for a short while as O3, then quickly returns to the normal, breathable O2. To achieve a sanitizing level, the ozone generator should run for about an hour and reach a certain PPM level in the room. People and pets cannot be in the treatment area during the treatment as ozone is a known respiratory irritant. The ozone reverts in about an hour, and it is recommended to let fresh air into the room(s) prior to normal operation.
Contrary to 98% of ozone generators, the XRPRO line of ozone generators have changed the screen and plates to glass-lined electrodes that produce what we believe is a more pure form of ozone. In part, the absence of metal that produces the ozone removes a potential problem. Secondly, our normal air is about 20% oxygen and 80% other gases, but mostly nitrogen. When running an ozone generator, it will also convert the nitrogen to a nitrogen oxide. While of a minor concern, the nitrogen oxide adds to the metallic post-smell and does not help with the treatment at all.
When the electrodes are glass-enclosed, the ozone is typically sweeter smelling and has a better impact on the treatment area.
In addition, the glass-lined electrodes do not deteriorate as the metal screen and plates. Hence, the lifecycle of these kinds of ozone generators are extremely long by comparison. Normal cleaning and care will allow these ozone generators to outlast any and all metal electrode systems.
The XPRO series of ozone generators at www.professionalozone.com are exceptionally well made and have earned our admiration and the NOAI approved seal.
