The Benefits of Ozone
Across all applications, embedded in every one of the DEL Ozone Advanced Sanitation Solutions, are the benefits of ozone sanitation.
Learn more about some of the benefits below:
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 body lotions.
Ozone is Tested and Proven to be Effective Against Tough Microorganisms
Microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium, MRSA (antibiotic resistant staph), E.coli, Salmonella, Listeria, and Pseudomonas are destroyed by ozone.
Ozone is Highly Effective in Cold Water
This saves a lot of energy and also enables applications, such as surface disinfection, where heating hot water in sufficient quantities is simply not feasible or too expensive.
Ozone Saves Money
Ozone is the cost effective sanitizer. It can help reduce the need for repeated chemical purchase costs, dosing costs, and for storage and management. Ozone reduces the need for hot water, reducing energy use to save money as well as the environment. Disinfection process routines, such as in the food industry, can be a much more streamlined affair since ozone reduces the amount of time needed for a sanitation routine by eliminating some chemical or thermal processes, rinse and repeat rinse cycles – the applied ozone simply oxidizes the substances it contacts or it quickly spontaneously decays. Ozone is produced on the spot, used on the spot, and disappears.
Ozone is an EPA Approved Antimicrobial Disinfectant and Sanitzer
Ozone is only one of three groups of antimicrobial agents regestered by the EPA for public health use (the other two being antibiotics and antispetics).
Ozone Meet or Exceeds Guidelines Set Forth by the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC)
The MAHC provides guidance based on science and best practices that help local and state authorities and the aquatics sector make swimming and other water activities healthier and safer. States and localities can use the MAHC to create or update existing pool codes to reduce risk for outbreaks, drowning, and pool-chemical injuries.
Ozone Has Been Qualified for Use by the FDA
The applies to direct food applications as well as food processing surface disinfection.
Ozone Applications Comply with NSF/ANSI Standard 50, OSHA and UL Lab Standards
Ozone is recognized as safe and highly effective when applied according to NSF and UL.
Ozone is the Environmentally Preferred Sanitizer
For all its inherent power, ozone sanitation has no negative impact on the environment, either for its operators or for the people who benefit from the disinfection process. Ozone benefits the environment both by reducing the use of energy to heat water and lowered chemical consumption and because it creates no harmful byproducts. The oxidation process reduces the ozone, leaving behind only oxygen.
