Ozone Benefits

The benefits of ozone are embedded in every one of the DEL Ozone Advanced Sanitation Solutions
 
Benefits of Ozone
Ozone is Nature’s Most Powerful Disinfectant & Oxidizer
On a base average (depending on the microorganism or organic contaminant), it is 200 times stronger than chlorine and is effective in destroying organic contaminants, pathogens, and a variety of inorganic materials, such as suntan lotion, oils, and cosmetics. 
 
Ozone Destroys Resilient Microorganisms
Microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium parvum, Giardia, E.coli, Salmonella, Listeria, and Pseudomonas are destroyed by ozone.
 
Ozone is Highly Effective in Cold Water
Using cold water instead of hot saves energy and reduces the costs associated with heating water. When the need for hot water is too expensive or just not feasible, ozone sanitation provides a significant money-saving alternative.
 
Ozone Saves Money
Ozone is the cost-effective sanitizer. It helps to reduce the need for repeated chemical purchase costs, dosing costs, water turn rates, and for storage and management. As noted, ozone also reduces the need for hot water, which reduces energy use. 
 
Ozone is an EPA Approved Antimicrobial Disinfectant and Sanitizer
Ozone is one of only three groups of antimicrobial agents registered by the EPA for public health use (the other two being antibiotics and antiseptics).
 
The Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC)
The MAHC provides water safety guidance to assist local and state authorities to help ensure water activities are safe for the public. States and localities can use the MAHC to create or update existing pool codes to reduce risk for outbreaks, drowning, and pool-chemical injuries. DEL Ozone continually reviews the MAHC, and meets or exceeds the standards set forth. 
 
Ozone Applications Comply with NSF/ANSI Standard 50, OSHA and UL Lab Standards
Ozone is recognized as safe and highly effective when according to the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
 
Ozone & The FDA
Ozone has been qualified for use by the FDA. This applies to direct food applications as well as food processing surface disinfection.
 
Ozone is the Environmentally Preferred Sanitizer
For all its inherent power, ozone sanitation does not negatively impact our environment, either for its operators or for the people who benefit from the disinfection and sanitation process. We ensure our units are energy efficient, we effectively reduce chemical consumption, and we do not create any harmful by-products.
