What is ozone?

Ozone is one of the most powerful oxidants available, destroying bacteria,viruses,

mold and mildew in air, water and diverse applications almost instantly and more

efficiently than any other technology. Ozone’s molecular structure is three

oxygen atoms (O3).

How is the ozone produced?

Ozone can be produced artificially by an ozone generator according to the same

principles that occur in nature; by UV light (ozone layer) or by corona discharge

(lightning). In both methods the bonds between oxygen molecules are broken

forming oxygen radicals (O), which connect with other oxygen molecules (O2) to

create ozone (O3). The corona discharge method is preferred for ozone

production due to its prolonged efficiency and lower production costs.

An ozone generator uses either ambient air or pure oxygen to create ozone.

The benefit of using pure oxygen is that higher concentrations of ozone can

be achieved more quickly. Applications requiring high ozone concentrations

will therefore favour the use of an oxygen concentrator, which separates pure

oxygen from the air.

How does ozone work?

Ozone destroys pathogens and odors by an oxidation process: one of the

three oxygen atoms reacts and splits from the ozone molecule to oxidize

matter with inherent oxidation demand. In so doing, the ozone molecule is

transformed into oxygen. Any excess ozone is stable for a short time before

decomposing back into oxygen.

The most common ozone applications include air and water purification as

well as applications where ozone can fully or partially replace disinfectants. As

opposed to most chemicals, ozone is safe to use

Why is ozone a green technology?

Ozone is a green technology with many environmental benefits. It reduces our

dependence on traditionally used, harmful chemicals such as chlorine and

eliminates their hazardous disinfectant by-products (DBPs). The only by-product

created by ozone applications is oxygen which is reabsorbed into the atmosphere.

Ozone’s ability to disinfect in cold water also saves energy.

Ozone’s function in food vegetable industry

Ozone air water purification,sterilization for fruits,vegetable,food processing

industry will effectively stop the buildup of ethylene gas produced by some

varieties and will increase the safe storage period for food and vegetable.Ozone

will also destroy airborne organisms and reduce losses caused by the spread of

disease .The use of ozonated water for washing and disinfecting can reduce these

losses of food vegetable and maximize returns.
