Ozone generators produce ozone by adding energy to oxygen molecules (O2) which cause the oxygen atoms to part ways and temporarily recombine with other O2 molecules creating ozone (O3).
This process is carried out by an electric discharge field as in the CD-type ozone generators (corona discharge simulation of the lightning) or by ultraviolet radiation as in UV-type ozone generators (simulation of the ultraviolet rays from the sun). In addition to these commercial methods ozone may also be made through electrolytic and chemical reactions.
Ultra Violet Light
In general an ozonation system includes passing dry clean air through a high voltage electric discharge i.e. corona discharge which creates and ozone concentration of approximately 1% or 10 000 mg/L.
In treating small quantities of waste the UV ozonators are the most common while large-scale systems use either corona discharge or other bulk ozone-producing methods.

Functions of ozone generator
1. Ozone generator for air purification
Ozone for air purification also do odor deodorization and bacterial sterilization.
Ozone remove all kinds of bacteria viruses odors fungi and various pathogenic and saprophytic germs with it's oxidation function it oxygenate tissues and these pathogens cannot live.
In so doing the air is naturally fresher because the source of the pollution has been destroyed.
The last but not the least after ozone treatment there is no second pollution but with more oxygen healthy cell.
Ozone for air purification:
a. Remove a myriad of odors from smoke pets animals cooking mold mildew etc even effective for flooding fire remediation.
b. Keep air fresh and clean for hotel motel rooms restaurant home school office vehicles cars etc.
c. Keep mice cockroaches insects & vermin out retard mold growth used in storage rooms warehouse basement attic boat ect.
d. Remove methylbenzene formaldehyde and other harmful gas from new furniture and house create a healthier living environment.
e. Ozone also can reduce ammonia levels ensure a healthy disease-free environment for animal / poultry farming.
Sizing an ozone machine for air purification depends greatly upon a number of factors: area size level of contamination and type of use all come into consideration.
2. Ozone generator for water treatment
Ozone is a more powerful oxidizing agent than chlorine but unlike chlorine it does not lead to the formation of THMs (tri-halomethanes) or complex chlorinated compounds which are believed to cause cancer.
Ozone can treat a large spectrum of water issues including:
a. Bacteria including iron bacteria
b. Heavy metals such as iron and manganese
c. Organic contaminants such as tannin and algae
d. Microbes such as Cryptosporidium Giardia and Amoebae etc All known viruses
e. Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)
1. Aquarium fish farming RAS (recirculating aquaculture system) ozone water sterilization and disinfection.
Fish hatcheries and fish farms play an ever increasing role in supplying the world's demand for fish. To effectively supply this demand fish farms must practice intensive farming techniques where more and more fish are farmed in the same or smaller tank volumes. Of course as the fish density grows so does the risk of infection by water-borne bacteria and viruses. Ozone is the ideal disinfectant for aquaculture because of its ability to kill bacteria and viruses without leaving any residue.
2. Drinking water pure water mineral water bottled water disinfection.
water taste and odor removal
What oxidizer can kill bacteria impart no adverse taste or odor be tested and verified that it is present and have no residual when consumed? Chlorine and hydrogen peroxide cannot work without filtration and destruction. Ultraviolet cannot. Ozone is the only choice left.
3. Ozone generator for swimming pool spa disinfection.
Ozone is an effective disinfectant killing bacteria viruses spores mold and algae. There are many advantages of ozone pool treatment over chlorine: odor-free won’t produce THMs (Tri-Halo Methanes) won’t dry the skin or irritate the eyes and won’t bleach hair or bathing suits.

Dissolving Ozone Into Water
Ozone cannot be stored therefore it must be generated on-site and dissolved into water on-site at the rate of consumption. Ozone is generated as a gas that must be dissolved into water. A mixing device will be necessary for ozone gas to dissolve into water efficiently.
Ozone water mixing device:
Dissolving ozone into water for any of the various applications listed above may be very simple or could be extremely complicated. This will be depending upon the application and the variables working within that application. For more professional guidance please contact us.
