Uses and features

There is an increasing need for human- and environment-friendly sterilization methods that are free of residues at work sites where hygiene management is highly required.

Ozone is made from oxygen in the air, and after reacting with bacteria and viruses, it returns to oxygen and water. Unlike the case of sterilization with chemicals, there is no residue and no environmental burden. Ozone water has sterilizing and deodorizing power by oxidation like gaseous ozone, and when ozone in water reacts, to oxygen (O 2 it returns ).

In recent years, drug-resistant bacteria (AMR * the possibility that the number of deaths from ) will increase in the future has become a major problem. Therefore, there is an increasing need to suppress the outbreak of drug-resistant bacteria even in sterilization work. Sterilization with ozone water destroys the cell wall (membrane) of bacteria by the chemical reaction of protein and ozone, and sterilizes by leaking intracellular components. Therefore, unlike the case of using drugs, it is possible to prevent the bacteria from becoming resistant to drugs.

* Drug-resistant bacteria AMR: Bacteria that have acquired resistance to drugs, especially antibiotics. (Antimicrobial resistance)
