BENEFITS OF OZONE GENERATORS

WHAT IS OZONE?

 

Ozone (O3 or trioxygen) is a blue gas with a density greater than air, and most importantly it is a powerful disinfectant for both air & water.

Ozone generators are...

  • anti-viral
  • anti-microbial
  • anti-bacterial
  • anti-fungal

The Crystal Quest Ozone Generator kills single and multi-cellular organisms including bacteria, viruses (very possibly including the COVID-19 coronavirus) and fungi. The infusion time varies depending on the size of the indoor space and the level of ozone that the system produces; after this time you can enjoy a bacteria-free environment with clean air and peace of mind.

Ozone Eliminates Airborne Microorganisms

Microorganisms are a variety of pathogens which cause infectious disease. A pathogen is a biological agent that causes disease or illness with the transmission of microorganisms. The common pathogens are viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa.

Airborne microorganisms are a major cause of respiratory disease in humans, causing allergies, asthma, and pathogenic infections of the respiratory tract. Airborne fungal spores are also important agents of plant disease, and the means for dissemination of many common saprotrophic (saprophytic) fungi.

Ozone generators can effectively kill airborne bacteria, parasites, fungi, and other microbes. Read more below under Decontamination Shock Treatment

 

 

DECONTAMINATION SHOCK TREATMENT

Ozone Shock Treatment is a process to permanently eliminate odors, airborne pathogens, and bacteria in your home, car/vehicle, and commercial & industrial environments.

Shock treatment involves using an ozone generator with a timer to create disinfectant levels of ozone in an enclosed odor-ridden room or building for a short period of time; between one and several hours. Though Ozone is a guaranteed method of removing unwanted odors and airborne microorganisms within your home, office, R.V., car, truck, office, warehouse, and more, it is important to understand the process of ozone.

The process of oxidation begins when the Crystal Quest Ozonator is placed in the environment and the system is set according to EPA standards. The room must be vacated during the process. Afterwards, one can return to an odor-free environment.

Ozone Shock Treatment is not an in-home air freshener. Ozone generators...

  • Eliminate bacteria & viruses
  • Do not mask odors as deodorizers and air fresheners do, but rather eliminates them.
  • are Non-Toxic, environmentally friendly, and safe when used properly and according to EPA Standards.

The Crystal Quest Ozonator will saturate your home with Ozone so that every possible crevice it can access is attacked, removing the odor and airborne pathogens within your home, R.V., car, truck, office, warehouse and more.

Production of Ozone will depend on room temperature and humidity (level of moisture in the air). The best condition for ozone treatment is cold temperature with no humidity.

For advanced odor elimination & disinfectant, vacate the environment of plants, pets, and humans, set the timer and allow at least one additional hour to allow the Ozone to dissipate.

For decontamination shock treatments .5-2 mg/hr ozone should be used for every 100 sq/ft, depending on the time required to complete the treatment for the specific area and the area's condition. Output of Ozone during decontamination shock treatment will vary upon temperature of the area.

DECONTAMINATION SHOCK TREATMENT IS MOST EFFECTIVE IN 60 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT AND BELOW. GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION CAUSES TEMPERATURES TO VARY (for example an Alaska user vs a Florida user), THEREFORE THE ROOM TEMPERATURE MUST BE SET ACCORDINGLY.

COVID-19 & VIRUS ELIMINATION

Ozone (O3 or trioxygen) is a powerful anti-viral, anti-microbial, antibacterial, and anti-fungal disinfectant. We know that ozone destroys viruses and while there have currently been no published studies regarding the effects of ozone on the COVID 19 virus specifically, there have been numerous scientific studies that show ozone gas is able to destroy the SARS coronavirus which is almost identical in structure to the new COVID 19 coronavirus.

At this time, no one can say for certain that ozone is effective in killing the novel coronavirus COVID-19, as it is simply too early and no peer reviewed studies have yet been conducted to support or confirm this. However, we know that ozone destroys other viruses by diffusing the gas through the protein coat of the cell into the nucleic acid core and damaging the RNA of the virus. While healthy cells have complex enzymes systems for protection, viruses have no such protections against oxidative stress which makes them vulnerable to ozone.

We can also look to similar case studies and see that there have been nearly 20 scientific studies showing ozone gas is able to destroy the SARS coronavirus which is almost identical in structure to the new COVID 19 coronavirus. Here at Crystal Quest, we are using these ozone devices throughout our facilities in addition to following other recommended public health practices such as social distancing and increased attention to hygiene.

According to the National Ozone Association,

Ozone gas has been proven to kill the SARS coronavirus and since the structure of the new 2019-nCoV coronavirus is almost identical to that of the SARS coronavirus, it is relatively safe to say that it will also work on the new coronavirus though it must be noted that there are no studies to date except one that is currently ongoing n China at the Institute of Virology In Hubei with regards to this. Progress of that study has shown that it works and the study should be concluded by the end of this week and officially published in the journal Virology.

Ozone is also effective in water filtration to eliminate bacteria from drinking-water. Read more below:

WATER TREATMENT

Ozone water treatment kills any bacteria in a safe, odorless, and taste-free way. Ozone is a natural sterilization process that ensures your water is bacteria-free. Ozone leaves no after-taste or smell and is environmentally friendly. Once Ozone has finished its sterilization job it dissipates as Oxygen leaving our water oxygen enriched.

The Crystal Quest Ozonator can also be used to sterilize water. Often used as a fast and effective method to provide a safe solution for sanitization in the food and restaurant industry, agriculture, and medical.

OZONE SAFETY

(Please read before purchasing / use)

To guarantee safety during the use of an Ozone Generator, activate the system when the space is unoccupied. The Crystal Quest Ozonator is equipped with a timer to assist with safety and will shut the system down prior to reentry. Please allow at least one hour for the ozone to dissipate before the space is reoccupied.

For Ozone safety, consider what needs to be treated with ozone. Is your goal to sanitize the air you breath, eliminate odors, remove the smell of tobacco, or disinfect contaminated areas?

0.2% of ozone is a significant level; this is why ozone concentration is measured in Parts Per Million (PPM). It only takes 3-4 PPM to kill off all germs, including Bacteria, and Viruses. When inhaled, ozone can damage the lungs. OZONE GENERATORS SHOULD BE USED AT A MAXIMUM OF 8 HOURS PER DAY.

Important: Normal rates of respiration for resting adults is between 12 to 16 breaths a minute. That's 12 to 16 times a minute that we inhale not just the good but also the bad of the air around us including viruses, bacteria,– toxins, chemical, dust and pollutants

  • EPA / OSHA
  • DISCLAIMERS
  • CALIFORNIA

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires ozone output of indoor medical devices to be no more than 0.05 ppm (parts per million).

The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends an upper limit of 0.10 ppm, not to be exceeded at any time.

EPA’s National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ozone is a maximum 8-hour average outdoor concentration of 0.08 ppm.

If an ozone air purifier is going to be running while people are present, the EPA recommends the proper settings should be selected so that the ozone level is less than 0.08 ppm.

For best results the ozone generator should be mounted as high in the room as practical. Ozone is heavier than air and it will eventually fall to the floor.

Air circulation is an important factor in how effective ozone works. For large areas, an oscillating fan should be placed next to the generator to help circulate the ozone throughout the room.

Please Remember: Ozone Generators are an electronic appliance containing electrical parts and connections. Your generator will become damaged and the ozone output lessened if immersed in water or operated when humidity is above 60%. Lowering the humidity can often be accomplished with dehumidifier or air-conditioner in the room to be treated.

At high concentrations ozone can cause chest pain, coughing, shortness of breath, and throat irritation. Ozone may also worsen chronic respiratory diseases including asthma and compromise the ability of the body to fight respiratory infections. If the area is occupied with people, pets, and plants during odor elimination and disinfecting, then Ozone machines must be operated with very low settings, in well ventilated spaces, and must follow all EPA guidelines.
