What is an Ozonator? – A2Z Ozone

What is an Ozonator?

Our ozonators utilize corona discharge technology to produce ozone. The ozone can then be used in air, water or oil applications for a wide range of purposes.  Ozone is 3,000 times more effective than bleach, making it the second most powerful oxidant in existence (deadly fluorine gas is first).  

When ozone gas is introduced to an environment with bacteria, mold or any other organic material, it readily donates one of the oxygen atoms to oxidize or destroy that material. Ozone can also oxidize some inorganic materials like calcium and arsenic and a number of trace metals, such as iron. Once the third oxygen atom is used to oxidize an organic or inorganic contaminant, there is only an oxygen (O2) molecule left. This natural solution leaves no chemical residue behind.

What many people are referring to when they mention an ozonator is our portable, 600 mg/hour multi-purpose ozone generator--the Aqua-6. People use it to ozonate water to clean vegetables, bathe, drink, and perform house chores. The Aqua-6 Multi Purpose Ozone Generator is the most basic machine we sell; it is also our best seller. 

In addition, we have released an upgraded version of the best selling Aqua-6. The Aqua-8 has an enhanced ozone output of 800 mg/hour with many other upgraded features including an oxygen hookup port and an 18-setting timer.

A Little About Ozone

Of course, we all know about the ozone layer that protects our planet. However, ozone exists in the lower atmosphere. One way ozone is formed is through the high energy contained within electrical discharges, which occur during lightning storms. Ozone is responsible for the fresh smell after a lightning storm. Or, ultraviolet rays emanate from the sun, creating ozone (O3). The rays split the oxygen molecules (O2) and form an unstable oxygen molecule and a highly unstable oxygen atom. Because they are unstable, they oxidize, or go through a reaction, bond with the loose atom (O1), and create ozone. Then, ozone quickly reverts back to oxygen. The infographic below shows how A2Z Ozone makes ozone with the ozone generator.
