Ozonization… antivirus

Against viruses and bacteria there is ozone, an ecological method for cleaning environments.

Ozone directly attacks the surface of microorganisms and destroys their cell walls.

“The ozone used is prepared through ozonizers, specific devices, which transform the surrounding air into ozone, through electrical discharges. Cleaning is carried out on limited spaces and exerts an antifungal and bactericidal action. A real revolution to sanitize any type of surface. Infections, molds, allergies, mites, bacteria will be stopped by the gas with a lasting and powerful effect “.

This mobile device is positioned in the center of the room and turned on for 90 minutes. Oxygen is transformed into ozone. In the programmed period of time it is possible to saturate a space of about 130 m2. At the end of the cycle, ozone returns to its initial form, oxygen.

Although the procedure requires a short period of action, it guarantees the purification and sterilization of any type of pollutant present in the air.



Ozonization a chemical water treatment technique based on the infusion of ozone into water. Ozone is a gas composed of three oxygen atoms, which is one of the most powerful oxidants. Ozonation is a type of advanced oxidation process, involving the production of very reactive oxygen species able to attack a wide range of organic compounds and all microorganisms. The treatment of water with ozone has a wide range of applications, as it is efficient for disinfection as well as for the degradation of organic and inorganic pollutants. Ozone is produced with the use of energy by subjecting oxygen (O2) to high electric voltage or to UV radiation.

Whilst ozone is the most effective disinfectant overall and is more effective than chlorine in inactivating viral agents, there are significant disadvantages to its use. Ozone does not provide residual protection against recontamination during distribution and as ozone affects biological stability, it may encourage re-growth of bacteria. However, given the concerns about the use of chlorine in many countries because of the formation of toxic disinfection by-products (DBP), the use of ozone is increasingly investigated and the lack of residual may be dealt with by employing regular booster ozonation during distribution.
