The effects and hazards of ozone

The effects and hazards of ozone

Ozone, a allotrope of oxygen, Its chemical formula is O3, a bluish gas with a fishy smell.

The most frequently mentioned is the ozone in the atmosphere, which absorbs ultraviolet rays of up to 306.3nm in sunlight. Most of them are UV-B (wavelength 290~300nm) and all UV-C (wavelength ≤290nm), protects people, plants and animals on Earth from short-wave UV damage.
In recent years, one of the most important reasons for global warming is also because of the destruction of the Antarctic and Arctic ozone layer, and an ozone hole has appeared, which shows the importance of ozone!


Ozone has its own characteristics of strong oxidation and sterilization ability, so what application of ozone in our daily work and life?
Ozone is often used in the decolorization and deodorization of industrial wastewater, the substances that produce odor are mostly organic compounds, these substances have active groups, easy to have chemical reactions, especially easy to be oxidized.
Ozone has a strong oxidation, oxidation of the active group, smell disappeared, so as to achieve the principle of deodorization.
Ozone will also be used in the fume exhaust deodorization, etc., Lightbest fume exhaust treatment equipment can be used for deodorization.The working principle is to generate ozone through the ultraviolet sterilization lamp of 185nm to achieve the effect of deodorization and sterilization.

Ozone is also a good bactericidal drug, which can kill many pathogenic microorganisms and can be used by doctors to treat some diseases of patients.
One of the most important roles of ozone is the sterilization function. The ultraviolet sterilization lamp of Lightbest uses ultraviolet light of 185nm to transform O2 into O3 in the air. Ozone destroys the structure of the microbial film with the oxidation of oxygen atoms to achieve the sterilization effect!


Ozone can get rid of formaldehyde, because ozone has oxidation property, can decompose indoor formaldehyde into carbon dioxide, oxygen and water. Ozone can be reduced to oxygen in 30 to 40 minutes at normal temperatures without secondary pollution.
With all this talk about the role and function of ozone, what harm does ozone do to us?
Correct use of ozone can achieve twice the result with half the effort, but excessive ozone on the human body is also harmful!

Inhaling too much ozone can damage the human immune function, long-term exposure to ozone will also lead to central nervous poisoning, light headache, dizziness, vision loss, severe will also occur fainting and death phenomenon.
Do you understand the effects and hazards of ozone?
