Why choose Ozone technology?

  • Microbes cannot develop resistance to Ozone or Ozonated water
  • Sterilizes the smallest pores, and is highly reactive, while getting into the nooks and crannies that chemical molecules can’t reach
  • Uses ambient water and instantly kills microorganisms, while eliminating the use of dangerous chemicals with no harmful byproducts
  • Safe for equipment and operators, as ozone system monitors, can assure operational efficacy
  • An additional high tech hand wash process to pathogen and cross contamination control
  • Effectively use the dispensed soap and reduce waste with ozonated water anti-microbial rinse
  • Proven sanitizer generated into the water source for POU (Point of Use)
  • Creates no residue and reverts to oxygen O2 while killing germs
  • Pathogens cannot develop immunity or resistance to Ozonated water
  • Organic chemical free rinse that is 99.999%, effective on a wide range of pathogens
  • Ozonated water systems are USDA and FDA approved
  • Enhances you quality control and best practices plan for corporate and FDA compliance
  • Reduction of water use and waste discharge and heated water reducing carbon footprint.
  • Offers ROI on the investment with the employees desired use of enhanced hand washing
  • ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) reading by digital meter is used to measure efficacy

Ozone Technologies as a Sterilant

USP 1229.6 includes ozone as a sterilant in the Liquid Phase Sterilization section (Pharmaceutical Forum, 2014). Ozone technology is rapidly advancing through scientific research and innovative uses. We now see use of ozonated water technologies taking a major role in the fight against emerging pathogens and playing an important part of modernizing water and waste water operations along with water reuse projects. Innovative systems have solved microbial issues in food production and processing, grocery markets, restaurants, hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry. The use of AOP (Advanced Oxidation Process), utilizing UV (Ultra Violet Light), and (O3) Ozone, forms a high degree of microbial destroying hydroxal radicals and is being utilized as a sterilant. Ozone is an extremely powerful natural oxidant and is making a major contribution as we go forward seeking out chemical free disinfection and sterilization alternatives for environmental concerns, the planet and its water.

HOW IT WORKS

Oxygen to Ozone –  Oxygen (O2) is a naturally occurring molecule which is a colorless, odorless, highly reactive gas. It constitutes approximately 20% of the earth’s atmosphere. Ozone (O3) is formed naturally in the atmosphere by a spectrum of Ultra Violet light from the sun passing through oxygen molecules (O2) breaking the strongly bonded (O2) into two radical atoms of (O1). Some single atoms of (O1) form back to (O2). Many others atoms (O1) loosely bond with (O2) to form ozone (O3) -triatomic oxygen. Lightning passing through the air during a thunderstorm is breaking the (O2) bond, forming the same reaction to the oxygen molecules, creating ozone (O3). If you recall the freshness in the air after such a storm, you smell the fresh smell of ozone as it naturally cleans our atmosphere.

Ozone Created –  Ozone gas from PureQuest is created in essence by passing oxygen through an electrically charged field (Corona Discharge), or a spectrum of Ultra Violet light (UV), breaking the molecule of O2 into radical atoms of O1. The O1 radical atoms find O2 molecules and loosely bind themselves to the O2 molecule. This forms ozone (O3), now a new molecule with two strong bonds and one weak bond. The weakly bonded radical causes the molecule (O3) to be unstable. The O3 (triatomic gas) is then injected into the water stream to effectively dissolve in the form of extreme micro bubbles. The instability of O3 has a direct effect by reacting upon the collisions between molecules of substances such as bacteria, viruses, parasitic cysts, and organic materials.

Ozone Attacks –  This reaction results in ozone (O3) molecules attacking the molecular make up of bacteria, viruses, spores and other substances. This attack creates an oxidative explosion (Oxidation) on contact, which interferes with cellular metabolism, developing mutations in the cell wall. This causes the cell to release its form and makeup such as Plasma Membrane, Cytoplasm, Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and Ribonucleic Acid (RNA). Bacteria and virus cell walls break apart and are inactivated during this process of cell destruction, referred to in the study of microbiology as cell Lysis. During this process, energy is transferred from O3 molecules reverting to stable O2 molecules (leaving no residue).

Ozone Destroys –  Cells are bombarded by thousands of molecular collisions. In a few short seconds lysis occurs. The pathogen is destroyed and will no longer be able to regenerate. Bacterial organisms that are known to be susceptible to O3 oxidative stress include, Listeria, E-coli, Salmonella, Streptococci, Legionella pneumophila among many others. Numerous families of viruses such as Poliovirus, Norwalk virus, Parvovirus, Hepatitis and many others are susceptible to actions of O3. Ozone (O3) destroys viruses by diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic core, causing damage to the viral RNA. Ozone effectively destroys Fungi including some of the most common Candida, Aspergillus, Cryptococcus, Histoplasma and others.

Ozone Purifies –  The unique properties of aqueous ozone (ozonated water) are many. During the process, O3 reverts back to O2, no harmful by products or residues remain, such as but not limited to the toxic byproducts (THM’s, DBP’s) which are present after chlorine chemical oxidation. Another unique property of O3 oxidation as opposed to chlorine based products and anti-biotics is that the pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria, E coli, do not become resistant to ozone. Ozone is the earth’s most powerful oxidizer that can be safely used today for water treatment. Because of these unique properties O3 oxidation is used as a disinfectant for bottled water, swimming pools, spas, aquariums, food processing, pharmaceutical production and in many other applications.
