How Ozone Works

Date: 2021-07-20 Categories: Industry News Hits: 1735


When contaminants such as odors, bacteria or viruses make contact with ozone, they are destroyed completely by oxidation.
 

The third oxygen atom of ozone is unstable and extremely reactive. It readily attaches itself to other odor molecules. In so doing, that extra atom of oxygen is consumed with the odor, bacteria gone. Only oxygen is left.  Ozone reverts back to oxygen after it is used.



While ozone is very powerful, it has a very short life-cycle.
