Aqueous ozone is a powerful natural cleaner, stain remover, deodorizer, and sanitizer. It is the liquid form of ozone (O3), a naturally-occurring chemical compound. It is commonly used to purify water and as an anti-microbial agent in food production.
The LotusPRO® Aqueous Ozone Generator uses tap water to create safe aqueous ozone. LotusPRO® creates aqueous ozone on-demand, so maximum effectiveness is always available.
How effective is it?
Ozone is 50% more powerful than chlorine and up to 3000 times faster at destroying microorganisms. LotusPRO®’s aqueous ozone kills bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi, yeasts, cysts, algae, in a contact time between 30 seconds to 4 minutes.
How does it work?
Ozone is one of the strongest oxidizers known to man. Ozone destroys microorganisms by reacting with oxidizable cellular components, causing cell damage and the death of the microorganism. Membrane phospholipids, intracellular enzymes, proteins, and genomic material are targeted by ozone.
When attacking viruses, ozone diffuses through the protein coat, into the nucleic acid core, damaging the RNA that enables the virus to function.
Is it safe?
Ozone has been used as a drinking water purifier since 1906, and has since been introduced into other food and water preparation processes for its safe and powerful anti-microbial capabilities. The aqueous ozone produced by LotusPRO® is a broad range anti-microbial agent that works faster and more effectively against pathogens than chlorine bleach.
Once the ozone’s oxidation action is complete, it breaks down into oxygen (O2) and water (H2O). No fumes or toxic residues like dioxins and tri-chloramines, as chlorinated products and other synthetic cleaning agents can leave behind.
Why hasn't aqueous ozone been used more widely before now?
Aqueous ozone production previous relied on complex and expensive technologies. The costs associated with purchasing and maintaining these systems were prohibitive. But the LotusPRO changes that– the system requires minimal setup and maintenance. A replaceable stabilizer cartridge is the only upkeep expense, and costs only about $0.25 per gallon of aqueous ozone solution produced.
LotusPRO® provides on-demand continuous aqueous ozone production, which can be delivered any way a standard liquid can be. Our HydroMAID II is an excellent aqueous ozone delivery system for small- to medium-sized facilities.
