What Is Ozone? How Does it Work?

Ozone is known to be the most effective antimicrobial disinfectant on earth. It disinfects and sterilizes by killing all the bacteria and viruses it comes in contact with. Ozone is more than 100 times stronger, reacts 3,000 times faster, and is much more effective in killing bacteria and viruses than Chlorine. Although Chlorine is widely used today in most countries, it is highly toxic and detrimental to the environment.

Unlike Chlorine, Ozone does not leave unwanted chemical residues in the water. Chlorine based cleaning products involve adding toxic chemicals into the water whereas Ozone Water merely adds Ozone (a totally natural element) into the water. Ozone will eventually dissolve in the water as Oxygen and dissipate into the air without any chemical residues whatsoever.

Ozone Water Can Do All This

  • By washing under running ozone water for a few seconds you can:

    • Kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on contact. These include all common food pathogens: E.coli, Salmonella, Hepatitis-A, Legionella, Listeria and Shigella, plus corona and other virus types. Ozone is FDA approved for direct food contact application.
    • Clean Multi Food Surfaces including Fresh Fruit, Salads and Vegetables, Sea Food, Meats.
    • Keep produce and food ingredients fresh for up to three times longer by killing the microorganisms that cause food spoilage, hence delaying the molding and decaying processes.
    • Remove agricultural chemical residues and pesticides from vegetables and fruits.
    • Remove chlorine residues and its unpleasant taste from tap water.
    • Eliminate the use of hot water and conventional sanitizers, hence saving on daily operational costs.
