The use of ozone has many and great advantages. Article by article we have been talking about some of them, but there are still many practical applications to analyze, to review … because the purifying effect of an ozone machine will improve performance in many different domains and industries. There is no doubt that ozone is the best disinfectant, since it is capable of attacking all kinds of microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and inhibiting their growth.
For that reason, an ozone generator is the perfect solution to disinfect a cold room. Why? Because the application of ozone means that we do not have to use other chemical products that, even though they would also be effective when it comes to eliminating microorganisms, leave behind hazardous waste which must be eliminated. Especially if food is stored in the cold room afterwards.
The most effective antimicrobial substance
Ozone is used as a biocide. And, with the same effectiveness as in swimming pools, this substance not only disinfects the water but also attacks the algae and fungi that may form, reducing its growth and keeping the water exposed to sunlight under appropriate conditions for bathing.
Ozone is so effective because it has the ability to reduce the biofilm that forms in a cold room, which is the main cause of corrosion and the reduction of heat exchange. In fact, ozone is more effective than chlorine as a biocide. This has been demonstrated by comparing the level of corrosion on the surfaces, in those areas where one product has been applied and another to eliminate the biofilm.
Cooling chambers disinfected with ozone
That is why the use of ozone generators in refrigeration chambers is, without a doubt, the ideal solution. Since it leaves no residue, it is highly recommendable to apply it when storing fruit and vegetables, as well as in the meat industry, or in the fishing industry.
The ozone generators are not limited to camouflage the odors, but they completely destroy the molecules that generate them, leaving behind a deodorized cold room. And since ozone eliminates microorganisms, disinfection is absolute.
Its use does not add any odor or taste to stored foods. In addition, in the case of meats and fish, as well as fruits and vegetables, the use of ozone prolongs the shelf life and the quality of the food, without causing any type of variation to its quality or nature, since the gas eliminates any indication of fungi or bacteria.
The germs that cause putrefaction are also completely eliminated, and in fact, ozone equipment does not need much time to act. With the correct application, the whole chamber, and the elements that make it up will be completely free of germs, and without unpleasant odors, preventing therefore any entry of contamination, or the transmission of flavors. Thanks to this, the same camera can be used for the storage of different products without problems.
