What is ozone?
Ozone (O3) results from a high electrical voltage or ultraviolet light being passed through oxygen (O2) molecules. It's the addition of the third oxygen atom in ozone that produces a powerful cleaning agent. The most effective way to create ozone for laundry applications is to use corona discharge, a method that passes dried, oxygen containing gas through an electrical field. The electrical current causes the oxygen molecules to split. Corona discharge is more effective than using ultraviolet light because ultraviolet light is incapable of producing ozone in sufficient quantities to overcome the oxidation demand of the soiled linen and can leave residuals like the super bug, MRSA. During a wash cycle, that third oxygen atom attaches to and breaks down organic materials like soils, bacteria, molds and greases. Once broken down, these materials are easily removed from fabric by detergent in the wash cycle. Ozone works best in cold water and can drastically reduce a laundry's need for hot water—cutting the workload and gas/electric/oil consumption of water heaters while conserving water. Since ozone leaves only oxygen behind, it's also environmentally friendly.
