Ozone in winery

In the past few weeks, we have spoken, broadly and broadly, about the different applications that ozone can provide in various areas and industries, but we have made special emphasis on the advantages of using an ozone machine in agriculture. Today, you will see more deeply that in a winery, applying ozone with the most appropriate generator,…

The advantages of ozone in agriculture

The use of ozone in horticulture and agriculture has become quite widespread in recent years. Its application is beneficial from the start, because it keeps pests and insects at distance, intervenes so as the harvest could be safe throughout the process, and even throughout the processing of the final product. Ozone is essential in the cleaning and…

Discover how ozone works

Ozone, also known as O3, is generated in nature as a bluish or colorless gas characterized by the fresh, clean smell in the air that remains after an electrical storm. When oxygen (O2) and electricity interact, ozone is created, and that is why we can smell ozone around photocopiers, electric motors or during arc welding. Natural levels vary…

Ozone in grain storage

Insects, especially fungi and weevils, cause great losses in stored grains. They amount to several million euros per year. Currently, the main weapons against these pests are specific chemical products; some of which will soon be banned, due to the environmental problems that they cause. And, in addition, these pests are getting stronger and stronger, which contributes to the…

The origin of the use of ozone

Since the early 1900s, ozone has been widely used for the disinfection of municipal water supplies, swimming pools, spas, cooling towers, as well as wastewater treatment plants. However, its use for the disinfection of raw materials, irrigation water, as well as in the packaging and storage of food, is more recent. It all happened in 1997 when…

Disinfection with ozone

Food security is a growing concern throughout the world. In the United States, the CDC (Centre for Disease Control and Prevention) estimates that every year one in six American citizens is affected by a foodborne disease. In the processing of food products, they should be free of pathogens. Keeping the products disinfected, reducing the potential for…

The use of ozone in water

A common disinfectant in the food processing industry is chlorine. This substance is mixed with water, obtaining chlorinated water to be used as a disinfectant. It has been shown that some microorganisms such as E.coli and Giardia can develop resistance to chlorine over time. This becomes a great inconvenience, because it is a less effective tool than it was expected. Another disadvantage…

The use of ozone in hotels

As we have detailed in previous articles, ozone is highly recommended for use in disinfecting water tanks, daily cleaning, cleaning people, washing clothes and food, deodorizing environments and vehicles, and of course, to ensure the complete elimination of insects and bacteria. Diluted at the right concentrations ozone has the ability to create purified environments, free of contaminants, fresh…

Hotel rooms disinfection

Days ago, we talked about the advantages that ozone generators provide us with when maintaining a hotel unpolluted. It is the perfect example, given the number of people who pass weekly in any hotel, always expecting adequate levels of deodorization and hygiene. With traditional cleaning products, it is not possible to completely destroy microscopic organic materials, such as bacteria, viruses,…

Ozone in industrial laundries

Ozone gas is composed of three oxygen atoms. It can occur when the energy breaks a stable molecule (O2) into two unstable oxygen atoms (O1). These two oxygen atoms only search for stable O2 molecules and combine to become Ozone (O3). Ozone is a colourless gas with an acrid odour and is a powerful oxidant. The ozone molecule is…
