Ozonated Water Generators
** THESE OZONATED WATER GENERATORS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE FROM PUREHOLD – YOU CANNOT BUY/RENT THESE OZONE GENERATORS FROM OZONE-DIRECT OR ANY OTHER SUPPLIER**
Ozone is a powerful oxidising agent which, when dissolved in water, produces a broad spectrum biocide called Ozonated Water that destroys all bacteria, viruses and bio-films. Ozone is the most powerful oxidising agent permitted for use at this time (only fluorine is stronger but its use is banned in most countries). Although it’s classified as a Biocide, it’s completely natural, environmentally friendly and leaves no chemical residue (unlike most Biocides), meaning it’s suitable for all food production and processing facilities, including organic sites.
As an oxidising agent, Ozonated Water is 51% stronger than chlorine and has a kill rate of 3.125 times faster. Ozone owes its biocidal effectiveness to its ability to oxidise organic material in bacterial membranes, which weakens the cell wall and leads to cell rupture causing immediate death of the cell.
In contrast, chlorine, and all other oxidising and non-oxidising biocides, must be transported across the cell membrane in order to interfere with either the nuclear reproductive mechanism or various enzymatic life giving reactions in the cell, in either event resulting in substantially less biocidal efficiency.
For this reason, ozone is capable of destroying all bacteria, algae and biofilms with no risk of resistance build up or immunity. Ozone also remains effective over a wide pH range.
Why switch to Ozonated Water?
- No harsh chemicals - Ozonated Water is produce by the Ozone Generator itself and therefore requires no other chemicals
- No residue - Unlike many biocides, Ozonated Water leaves no residue
- No pollutants - Ozonated Water creates no pollutants
- Kills microbes as effectively as chlorine - As an oxidising agent it is 51% stronger than chlorine
- Can be fitted to existing water supply
- Reduce chemical usage and cost
- Reduce hot water usage – can be used cold
- No resistant bacteria generated - Impossible for a microorganism to build up any resistance to oxidation
- Use directly - Can be sprayed directly on floors, drains, walls, wettable equipment, tanks (externally and internally), and clean rooms over time, the use of ozonated water removes and/or prevents biofilm
- Safe disposable waste - Any waste water produced is safe to enter waterways and surface drains so there is no need for a foul sewer
- Reusable waste - Waste water can be used in other grey water applications – saving water top up from other sources
- Proven - US EPA validate ozone’s efficacy as a sanitizer for surfaces, including processing equipment that come into contact with food.
Ozonated water is typically used to
- Wash down fresh produce to remove microbes
- Disinfecting factory surfaces and equipment during deep clean (in place of traditional sanitiser
Want to trial?
We know most companies can’t introduce a new chemical such as Ozonated Water without trialling it first. As such we offer all food factories a chance to trial the technology. Please contact us and one of our experts will run you through the information we require to arrange a trial at your site.
Available to either purchase outright, or rent.
Prefer to try before you commit? 2 month trial rentals available!
