This blog has previously discussed the ways an irrigation system using ozonated water can benefit the longevity of agriculture, however research suggests using ozone gases directly to treat produce has its own set of advantages.
Scientists at Newcastle University in England have developed an ozone reliant method that works to save produce from spoilage. Fungal contamination is the most common culprit of produce spoilage with an “estimated 30 percent of harvested fruit and veggies falling victim to it.” Dr. Ian Singleton, a microbiologist helping to lead the project, explains the way ozone gases were used to impact produce in the study, “We found that when tomatoes are exposed to a burst of ozone it acts in a similar way to a vaccine, changing the fruits' defenses and bracing them against attack.”
This boost to the defense systems of produce ultimately extended the shelf life of the fruits studied by an average of two to five days. Intensifying the plant’s immune system is key to the success of this method because it was “found that tomatoes exposed to ozone became more fungus-resistant, even once they were removed from the ozone gas.” Scientists are working to find the sweet spot for ozone gases used on produce as too much of the material can cause spoilage.
Each fruit and vegetable differs on its ozone threshold. Ozone gases is a preferred, more natural method over other common sanitation treatments used on produce, “Countermeasures currently including synthetic fungicides and pre-package sanitation treatments involving the use of chlorine or bromine.” Dr. Singleton emphasized this human-friendly advantage in an interview saying, "Ozone is a viable alternative to pesticides as it is safe to use and effective against a wide spectrum of micro-organisms. Importantly, it leaves no detectable residues in contrast to traditional methods of preserving fresh produce."
The method has been used on a plethora of favorite produce including “strawberries, grapes, tomatoes and plums, without causing any deterioration in produce quality when used in the correct way.”
We recommend the Aqua-6 for treatment of fruits and vegetables.

Lovely Home on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
Have you ever considered what life would be like without potable water? A2Z Ozone, Inc. may have a solution for you. Recently, we at A2Z Ozone, Inc. heard from James whose family lives in a lovely home on wooded land on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. But water was an issue. “Our initial concern was tea-colored well water,” James tells A2Z Ozone. Not only did the water from the well run tea-colored; upon analysis, James said it contained a high content of bacteria, tannins, and manganese with a PH level of 6.8.
James took action to care for his family and his dog, cat, bird, and two horses by resolving to fix the water issues. First, he chlorinated the well and water piping in the house, then drained and flushed the hot water tank. He ordered an MP-3000 Ozone Generator from A2Z Ozone, Inc. In an effort to conserve water, James upgraded the three toilets in the home to dual flush 0.8/1.28 gallon per flush toilets. He also installed both a Maytag Energy Star Certified washing machine and dishwasher.

The power of an ozone generator
The MP-3000 Ozone Generator is an excellent choice for the project James undertook. It gives up to 3 grams of ozone per hour. Considered a heavy-duty ozone generator, one of the MP-3000’s typical uses is for water sanitizing. It is known for removing bad tastes, chemicals, and the colors caused by the manganese in water. The results are phenomenal. As James put it, “…with the ozone treatment we now have sanitary, crystal clear water.” James is relieved to see pure water coming out of his faucets. He says this system provides water for washing vehicles and watering plants. He has even filled a swimming pool and a fish pond.

Technical specifications of the system
James kindly provided us with the technical specs: He connected the MP-3000 Ozone Generator to an ozone-resistant air injector (Waterite W988Z Micronizer) upstream of a 40 gallon degasser tank (the Duro 33155 FLS40D Flexpro Tank). Connected to the degasser tank are a multimedia filter (the Duro 4111 WGULTRAMF100) and an activated carbon filter with PH increase (the Duro 4913 CAN-15). Where does the excess ozone go? It is vented outside by an automatic vent valve provided by Honeywell Braukmann Q122A1001. Altogether, James spent approximately $2000 on the equipment for the project, not including the cost of a pressure tank and pump that were already in place.

Let’s face it… the older we get, the more and more we start to notice changes in our bodies. But most especially, in our skin! Fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin. OH MY! So, it’s pretty common for us to spend $30-$40 dollars on a cream each month that what we think is going to make us look younger. But what if I told you that you didn’t have to spend that $30-$40 dollars each month?! What if I told you that you could make your own miracle cream and save yourself money? Too good to be true? Wrong! It is entirely possible and the benefits are amazing!
Ozonated Olive Oil is a product that is really taking off! It has a million different uses! Here are some of the uses and what our customers have used it for:
||Skin Detoxify and Healthy Glow
||Improves Skin Tone
||Sweat Gland Infections
|Hair follicle infections
Wow! That is a lot of different uses for one kind of cream!
Curious how to make it? Well, when we were making it in-store, we used our S-32 G and paired that with an Oxygen Generator as well. This would produce about 2 gallons for us. But that isn’t the only unit that can be used for making the oil! Our MP-1000 up to our MP-8000 Multi-Purpose Ozone Generator can be used to make Ozonated Olive Oil.
Here is a chart on how long it will take for each unit to make the salve or Ozonated Olive Oil:
||3-4 days (salve)
||2-3 days (salve)
||2-3 days (salve)
||2-3 days (salve)
Here is the set-up that one of our customers has when they are making their own Ozonated Olive Oil.
We would be happy to help with any questions that you may have when ordering a unit or making your very own Ozonated Olive Oil! Give us a call at 502-499-4977! Happy Ozonizing!
