Some profit-making uses for an Ozone machine are:
|Sonozaire Ozone Machine Features and Benefits:
There are "tough" odors, and then there are those "impossible" odors. Unfortunately, a foul odor is often not just in the carpet, but is absorbed by all the surfaces in a room-absorbed by walls, ceiling, upholstery, drapes, furniture, mattresses, clothing, even wood. Some examples are odors from a dead animal (or body), fire/smoke damage, water damage with resulting mildew odors, mustiness, cigarette/cigar smoke, and chemical odors.
To remedy the situation, in addition to the "standard" methods, using deodorizers, there is the Ozone option. Ozone is a gas and is chemically represented as 03. Oxygen is represented as 02. A molecule of Oxygen is composed of 2 atoms of Oxygen: 0-0. A molecule of Ozone, however, is composed of 3 atoms of Oxygen: 0-0-0. This third Oxygen atom in Ozone is very unstable and wants to react with an organic material, such as a foul odor as well as with many organic stains. Ozone is a powerful oxidizer that breaks down odor molecules and converts them into water vapor and other odorless, harmless gases without leaving a perfume or any residue. The Ozone machines which Bane-Clene distributes generate Ozone automatically using a low-wattage "corona" discharge.
Be sure to provide air agitation to ensure the Ozone reaches all affected areas because Ozone is heavier than air. Sometimes the Ozone source needs to be elevated and blowers need to be running to ensure good circulation.
Ozone machines are rated by a cubic foot capacity range. To convert the rating to the more familiar square feet, simply divide the rating by the ceiling height (usually eight or ten feet). Manufacturers' ratings are generally very optimistic.
As with almost any procedure, there are some precautions that must be taken if using the Ozone treatment. Excessive Ozone exposure can cause color loss or hue shifts, with dyed acetate fabrics being the most sensitive. Rubber or rubber-based materials tend to deteriorate in the presence of Ozone. Silver and other reactive metals tarnish with Ozone. Ozone should not be used in areas where people, animals, fish or plants are present. Leather should only be exposed to ozone for a few hours. Do not expose natural rubber (latex) to ozone. Electronic equipment should be removed or covered.
After treatment with Ozone, all areas should be thoroughly ventilated, with one or more full air exchanges prior to occupancy, supplemented by the use of portable blowers and fans for agitation where needed, for about thirty minutes.
Cleaning should be conducted AFTER Ozone treatment because some solvents and detergents decrease Ozone effectiveness.
At one of our monthly schools, one of our equipment owners said he loved his Ozone machine because it made money for him while he was sound asleep! Would you like to have this kind of profit-making in your business?
The Sonozaire Ozone Machine disperses the manufactured ozone and oxidizes the odor or bacteria in the air, thus eliminating the problem permanently.
Through one of the most powerful, efficient, and economical oxidizing agents known to mankind, ozone, these electrically-operated machines eliminate organic odors such as smoke, mildew, vomit, some pet odors, and perspiration.
Sonozaire units are built of heavy-duty aluminum construction. Industrial ozone generators are designed to be used in uninhabited areas, or used at volumes that are limited by OSHA or EPA regulations.
The EPA limits ozone to 0.12 ppm per volume measured over one hour and 0.08 ppm measured over eight hours. OSHA limits the ozone level to 0.1 ppm per volume for an 8-hour work shift. Ozone can clean the air of unwanted odors and bacteria and make the air better to breathe, but large concentrations or prolonged levels above 0.1 ppm should be avoided.
Ozone generators should be used only in uninhabited areas to prevent exposure of excessive ozone.
