What is Ozone O3 Gas Sanitisation?


Ozone: a colourless gas with a pungent odour and powerful oxidizing properties, formed from oxygen by electrical discharges or ultraviolet light. It differs from normal oxygen (O2) in having three atoms in its molecule (O3).

How Does Ozone Kill Bacteria?

Ozone kills bacteria by destroying the cell wall of the bacteria. Once the cell wall is destroyed, the bacteria will be unable to survive. As mentioned above in “How Does Ozone Work”, the atomically charged third atom that is responsible for the formation of the Ozone (O3) molecule will readily attach itself to other odour molecules and when it does, alters the odour’s chemical structure to less odorous compounds.
