Although the power of ozone has been known for almost two centuries, the application of this natural agent in the field of professional cleaning, as well as the diffusion of its utility at an industrial and private level, is much more recent.
If you still do not know the extraordinary properties of ozone, or you want to know what an ozonator is, and what it can offer, in GreenBioZone, we are here to help you. We see every day the way in which the use of ozone is a valuable ally for the cleaning and disinfection of all kinds of environments and spaces.
How do ozone machines work?
An ozone generator is used to produce this gas, which consists of a molecule composed of three oxygen atoms, which is formed by dissociating the two atoms that make up the oxygen gas. Each atom that is released is then joined to another gaseous oxygen molecule (O2) to just form ozone (O3).
This gas, that of ozone, at room temperature and pressure has no color, but is characterized by a pungent odor. It is, obviously, present in nature. We can find it in the stratosphere, that is, the ozone layer, and it can also be produced in the electrical discharges of storms, for that reason when a lightning strikes nearby you can perceive that pungent odor, which comes from ozone. For some years it has been possible to generate it artificially, by means of ozone generating machines.
The reason why an independent installation is necessary in each space or crop is due to the fact that ozone cannot be transported or stored since in a short time it is transformed into oxygen. For this reason the ozone machines are placed in the place where this gas needs to be produced.
Advantages of having an ozone machine
- Acts on organic and inorganic compounds by oxidizing them
- Destroys bacteria, fungi and viruses, preventing their formation: it is bactericidal, microbicidal, healing and viricidal.
- Ozone has the ability to disinfect air and water. With it ozonized water is created.
- The ozone machine is an important deodorizing tool: it eliminates odors.
- Can be used in any type of installation where there are bad odors or risk of contamination.
- It is capable of restoring the ideal properties of ambient air.
- Use ozonate water purifies food.
- Improves hygiene, since to achieve a complete cleaning it is essential to take into account the ambient air and not only the cleaning surface areas.
- Helps health by its properties as bactericide, viricide, microbicide.
The advantages of ozone over the employees of a company
Absenteeism is reduced: Air quality directly affects absenteeism, since the more clean, disinfected and virus-free the air, the less diseases workers in a company will suffer.
It is estimated that 24.6 million work days are lost due to the sick building syndrome. That is to say, due to the poor quality of the air inside the buildings dedicated to bureaus and offices.
Therefore, working in an environment that is not free of viruses directly affects productivity. Both due to allergies or the proliferation of infections, a charged air ends up bringing consequences.
Thanks to ozone the symptoms are reduced in allergic persons: an allergic person sees aggravated his situation when moving inside an environment with contaminated air, making the symptoms more severe. With which, the air quality of a business ends up being an important factor that must be taken into account.
Ozone helps to stop the transmission of infections and diseases: viruses and bacteria remain suspended in the air as small drops, is the way they are transmitted to the surfaces by contact, making it easier for anyone to catch an infection. Thus, when ozone eliminates viruses and bacteria from the environment, we achieve a purified air, an authentic environmental disinfection, where it is more difficult to be infected by rebound.
No need to delve further into the reasons that make an ozone generator in a company brings but advantages. However, at GreenBioZone we are here to help you. We will be happy to tell you in depth the ways in which the performance and health of your workers can be optimized thanks to the ozonated air. We will advise you so that you can choose the most suitable ozone equipment for your business.
