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 unstable and tends to break down again. For that reason, ozone cannot be stored in any way, but must be generated in situ with an ozone generator.
These are the advantages offered by an ozone generator in an industrial laundry:
- The consumption of hot water is saved
Normally, in laundries the temperature ranges between 60 ° and 75 ° C. The use of ozone can reduce this temperature, to about 30 ° / 35 ° C. This is because ozone leads to the production of oxygen, increasing the potential of them both, which avoids the need to use very high temperature. By reducing the consumption of hot water the company saves costs of hot water, while less damage is produced to the clothing.
- The use of chemical products is reduced
Detergents used to wash clothes are more effective than the normal dose when combined with ozone. This is because ozone allows a greater effect of penetration and cleaning of detergents.
- It is a powerful disinfectant
Ozone is a biocide that can easily control odours, kill viruses and get rid of any bacteria up to 99% in textiles. For that reason, the application of ozone to wash clothes is widespread in hospitals and laboratory rooms.
- Greater care of the tissues
Numerous nursing homes have adopted ozone laundry systems, as well as hotels, prisons and hospitals. The testimonies of the customers demonstrate their satisfaction with the use of ozone. The bedding is softer and more pleasant, since high temperatures are not to be used.
We are waiting for you at GreenBiozone to know the needs of your company in order to recommend you the most suitable ozone generator.
