GENERATE DISINFECTANT ON-SITE FROM AMBIENT AIR:
PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE STERILIZATION OF AIR & SURFACES
OZONE: A POWERFUL WEAPON
THE WORLD’S STRONGEST ANTIMICROBIAL AGENT
GENERATED FROM AMBIENT AIR

ExOzone® SR-100 mobile units disinfect rooms and equipment using ambient air and electricity. All surfaces in the treated area are sterilized to pharmaceutical grade, including PPE, medical tools.
ExOzone® produce 500+ g/hr ozone at 380 CFM. A single unit has the capability to elevate ozone levels to 50+ppm in a 2,000 ft² room.
At 25ppm, ozone gas is a disinfectant. At 50+ppm, it sterilizes surfaces to pharmaceutical grade.
Due diligence required in sourcing: No other commercially available ozone generator can produce more than 10,000-20,000 milligrams of ozone per hour (10-20g/hr). Such generators are simply unable to elevate ozone levels anywhere near the required ppm range even in a small or average-sized room (<1-5ppm).
Our team of technicians provide free consulting services. Virtual site inspections are available to assess needs.
From planning to rapid deployment, training and commissioning, we work closely with all those in urgent need. Reach out to us directly with your immediate disinfection needs.
Plug-n-play operation, here is how it works:
Seal and secure treatment area
Deploy ExOzone® unit and monitors
Select and set a suitable treatment program
Start program (automated, computer-controlled unit performs the treatment)
Monitor safe operation
Retrieve equipment and allow occupants to return after treatment complete
Times vary depending on the size of the room and the total surface area of fixtures and equipment to be disinfected.
Site preparation, 15-30 minutes
Ozone treatment & ionizer, 1-2 hours
Re-entry with exhaust ventilation, 10-15 minutes
Re-entry without ventilation, ∼1 hour (half-life is 35 minutes)
USEFUL COMPARISONS FOR BENEFIT ANALYSIS:
EXOZONE TREATMENT VS CHEMICAL SPRAY & WIPE
Full coverage. Ozone reaches all surfaces, penetrating microscopic cracks and crevices. Spraying and manual wipe down can never produce even distribution. Blind spots are inevitable.
Self-reliance. Ozone is produced on site, out of thin air. No reliance on chemical supplies. Ozone treatment is a dry application disinfection method, no wet surfaces. No residues.
High efficacy. Ozone is a more powerful, more potent oxidizer than chlorine, chlorine dioxide or hydrogen peroxide. It is a fully automated, computer controlled application process.
No resistance. There is absolutely no built-up resistance to the oxidizing effect of ozone gas. It attacks the cell membranes and breaks down the DNA of microorganisms.
OZONE TREATMENT VS ULTRAVIOLET DISINFECTION
Uniform distribution. Ozone gas effectively reaches every corner of the environment. UV light can only be effective in a certain range and angle. Not active unless directly lit from close range.
Cost efficiency. Ozone is generated from ambient air using very little electricity. UV technology not only requires more electricity, but UV lights also need frequent replacement ramping up running costs.
Self-reliance. Ozone is produced on-site fro ambient air. No consumables, no storage, no reliance on supply chains necessary.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES: OZONE SAFETY
Ozone disinfection technology is the world’s safest industrial/commercial sterilization/sanitization method. No alternative high- or even mid-level disinfectant options can come remotely close to what ExOzone® technology offers when it comes to safety.
Creating a risk assessment matrix comparing historical incident data involving ozone vs alternative methods and agents is extremely revealing. Below, we have compiled some useful information to assist our prospective clients.
OSHA ACCIDENT REPORTS, COMMON DISINFECTANTS (1984-2020):
(click below to verify)
TOTAL: 525 INCIDENTS, 1,986 HOSPITALIZED, BURNT OR INJURED, 68 FATALITIES.
OSHA ACCIDENT REPORTS, OZONE GAS (1984-2020 FEB):
(click below to verify)
TOTAL: 1 INCIDENT, 2 HOSPITALIZED, RELEASED WITH NO INJURIES, 0 FATALITIES
Note: In the roughly 120 years (!) of ozone history, there are no other recorded workplace injuries, deaths or worker's compensation cases with relation to ozone. FDA has recognized ozone as generally safe back in 1982 and issued GRAS classification.
Treated rooms are always unoccupied and sealed - As opposed to many alternatives, personnel and sanitation crews are NEVER exposed to active agent.
Treated rooms are monitored for presence of ozone - Re-entry into the room is only permitted after full break-down of ozone.
Adjacent spaces are monitored - Ozone safety monitors pick up on lowest concentrations of ozone and alert staff.
Ozone is never stored - Generated in-time and on-site, there are absolutely no HAZMAT issues, no risks associated with storing, handling, mixing and applying chemicals present.
No risk of sudden faint - If accidentally inhaled, exit the room. Irritation passes within minutes.
Inhaling ozone gas has no known long-term health effects - With brief accidental exposure, no danger of burns, damaging lungs, prolonged effect or injury.
Ozone is used safely around the world to disinfect facilities, equipment, tools, produce, and products worth billions of dollars. Securing human health is the number one reason to introduce an ozone-based disinfection system. Sterilizing air and surfaces to pharmaceutical-grade without the use of harmful chemicals, and without any harmful residues left behind is at the core of our technology.
Treatment is only performed in unoccupied spaces. Secure, gas-tight sealing solutions are readily available. Color smoke candles can be used to reveal possible leaks. Gas-tight zipper door solutions can be deployed. Sections can be treated/protected with various zip walls.
