Ozone, is a three-atom form of oxygen and a normal trace element in the earth's atmosphere. Ozone is the strongest commercially available oxidizing agent. Because gaseous ozone is highly reactive, it readily oxidizes organic matter and has a variety of uses such as purification, virucide, fungucide, bactericide and an algaecide.
There are three stages in the life cycle of ozone: generation, oxidation, and decay.
It's presence can be detected by the sweet, pure "after a rain storm" odor, even at low concentrations.
The AquaLab System utilizes a process known as "cold plasma corona discharge" ozone generation. Simply stated, there is no electrical current running through the secondary electrodes to create heat. These electrodes, instead act as grounds to help create a strong plasma field. The plasma is the result of the energy that causes the oxygen molecule O2 to separate into two oxygen ions or singlet oxygen atoms. Since the amount of energy we introduce to the electrodes can be controlled, only 2% of the oxygen molecules undergo this change with an optimum output @ 1/2 liter per minute. Since the unstable oxygen ions don't like being by themselves, they quickly attach to the surrounding oxygen O2 molecules which creates Ozone or tri-atomic oxygen (O3)- by adding that third molecule of oxygen. By increasing or decreasing the voltage to the generator, we can adjust the amount of oxygen molecules that are affected and thus control the percent of concentration of Ozone to Oxygen. AquaLab is highly effective with no heat production and no cooling mechanism needed.
Ozone is a form of oxygen that has been electrically energized. The energy makes ozone more chemically active than oxygen. Most pungent substances are described by chemists as being unsaturated. Unsaturated simply means their molecular structure is not closed; therefore, it will readily combine with oxygen. Ozone actually breaks down polluted molecules such as hydrocarbons into water vapor and carbon dioxide. An ozone generator doesn't hide or mask unpleasant aromas with perfume or chemicals; ozone will attack and destroy the offending molecules, by oxidation.
Unfortunately, ozone and oxygen therapies with it's beneficial detoxification and life enhancing qualities has been demeaned, yet vindicated repeatedly during 80+ years of suppression. OZONE IS NOT A TOXIC POISONOUS GAS, BUT ACTUALLY AN ACTIVE OXYGEN SCAVENGER WHICH SEEKS TOXICITY IN VIVO (in the body) AND IN VITRO (outside body in test tubes). OZONE in releasing it's nascent, active oxygen - seeks and neutralizes heavy metals, toxic substances and metabolic leftovers from the redox (oxidation reduction) mechanism of cellular respiration and elimination.
Why Use Ozone for Body Purification?
Ozone's freely available form is carried by the life-circulating fluids of the body and is one of the most powerful healing agents - if you can get it in your body. The chemical symbol for ozone is O3 or 3 oxygen atoms in one molecule. It is nature's most active purifier and destroyer of bacteria, germs, parasites and worms. Oxygen is the most important element of life. Through oxidation (the union of an element with oxygen, as in digestion, burning or rusting), the universe maintains itself and breaks down, then re-builds again. We, of course, find this life-giving element as molecular oxygen or O2 (two atoms in one molecule) in the air. There, it is about 21% by volume. A healthy body can inhale and transport enough to maintain itself in good repair.
Oxidation contributes to proper metabolic function, better circulation,
assimilation, digestion and elimination. It helps purify the blood, keeping
it free from cellular waste build-up, viruses and disease. Sufficient oxygen
gives the body a chance to rebuild itself and strengthen its immune system to
defend against illness.
Why Use Ozone for Air Cleaning?
Low level ozone (oxidation) is an excellent air purification method. Ozone or activated oxygen is an unstable three-part molecule of oxygen (O3). When ozone meets a pollutant in the air it attaches itself to the pollutant and changes it into harmless compound. Eventually, it will oxidize or neutralize (destroy) it. therefore, low level ozone is an excellent method of eliminating unpleasant odors in the air, destroying pollen and dust particles, and even killing bacteria that may be floating in the air. Activated oxygen also revitalizes and refreshes stale air often found in homes and offices. Read more about Ozone & Ion Synergy
Why Use Ozone for Water Purification?
Ozone is the perfect answer to the global clean-water crisis. The US Food and Drug Administration and EPA found that ozone effectively destroys 99.9992 % of pathogens, including giardia and cryptosporidium. The American Water Works Association did research in 1991 that found ozone effectively neutralized viruses, bacteria, amoeba, protozoa and spores in municipal water supplies. At the Second International Symposium on Ozone Applications in 1997, WJ Masschelein, honorary president of the International Ozone Association, summarized some of ozone's other benefits as a water purifier: "Ozone is now used...for taste and odor control, removal of iron manganese...biodegradability of dissolved organic substances, ability to cope with parasites refractory compounds like chlorinated pesticides." Ozone has no known toxicity. Meanwhile, certain government authorities would have the public believe exactly the opposite of the truth: that chlorine is safe and that ozone is a dangerous pollutant. Most major cities still do not ozonate their water, even more reason to take water purification into your own hands.
