This is a great way to eliminate odours, whether the odours are in your house, caravan, car or boat. We prepare the space for the ozone treatment, and because it is a gas there are no problems with electrical equipment or your oil paintings. It is also a very cost effective way of odour elimination.
The Science of Ozone Treatment…..
Kestrels MaxBlaster like all ozone generators eliminates odour (and kills bacteria’s & mould) by converting oxygen (O2) into ozone (O3) which oxidizes all the volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) in a room or space at the molecular level. This is the airborne (gas) equivalent of how chlorine or bleach is used as a liquid cleaning agent.
The advantage that Kestrels MaxBlaster has over most ozone generators is that it produces extreme amounts of ozone… much more than the average ozone generator… over a given period of time. Because the overall concept of how a shock ozone generator works is to produce enough ozone to saturate an entire space in high concentrations for a long enough period of time (to oxidizeALLthe VOC’s in that given space) Kestrels MaxBlaster is capable of handling much larger/stronger odour & mould problems than the average generator. And it can handle the smaller projects in less amount of time.
Ozone, sometimes called active oxygen, is comprised of three atoms of oxygen. Ozone is a natural purifier and one of nature’s basic elements. Ozone is produced in nature when the ultraviolet rays of the sun strike oxygen molecules. When this occurs high in the atmosphere it creates what we know as the “ozone layer”. Because the oxygen molecules absorb the sun’s energy, living things on earth are protected from the damaging and potentially cancer-causing rays of the sun. Nature also produces ozone near the earth’s surface, especially during a thunderstorm, when lightning flashes. The sweet, fresh smell after a thunderstorm is ozone. Ozone will destroy viruses, bacteria, and virtually all other forms of microbes, as well as break down chemical contaminants.
It does this in both air and water and does it without the use of chemicals or additives of any kind!
Ozone’s use as a water purifier was discovered in the late 1800’s in the Netherlands. Its first large-scale use was inNice, France where it was used to purify drinking water. Today, more than thirty countries use ozone systems to purify drinking water. In fact, Los Angeles has one of the largest ozone water treatment plants in the world, processing more than 580 million gallons of city drinking water per day. This system was chosen over a chlorine system due to ozone’s extraordinary ability to effectively purify water without negative side effects. In addition, most of the worlds bottled water plants use ozone as part of their water purification process.
