MOEL Ozone Machine
- Use the ozone generator in a clean and dry environment.
- Do not use when temperatures are very high, above 40°C.
- Do not open the case of the product.
- Unplug the product if it is not to be used for a long time.
- Keep the external surfaces of the product clean. Its inactivation action on bacteria, viruses, molds etc … depends on its concentration in the air and on the exposure time
Ozone is a gas naturally present in the stratosphere. It is our natural protection against harmful UV rays. In high concentrations it has a bluish color and a pungent odor. Its concentration in the atmosphere is about 0.04 ppm (parts per million – 1 ppm = 2mg / m3). In nature, ozone can be generated with the strong electric discharge of lightning; it is possible to smell it after a thunderstorm. The electric discharge, acting the oxygen molecule O2, transforms it into a new O3 molecule, namely ozone. Given its high reactivity, ozone tends to dissociate into O2 + O, and it is the latter responsible for the high oxidizing power of ozone. After a certain period of time ozone tends to disappear naturally, reducing itself to oxygen, without leaving any trace. Ozone can also be artificially generated by a process called “Corona effect” starting from the oxygen naturally present in the air and by mean of a machine called “Ozonator”, which produces electrical discharges inside. Its high oxidizing power was discovered by Christian Friedrich Schönbein in 1840. It is so high that it disinfects faster and in lower concentrations than other disinfectants such as chlorine, chlorine dioxide and mono-chloramine.
