Youtuber Maciej Nowak Projects needed a source of fresh ozone for some future chemistry related projects, and since buying an off-the-shelf unit would be,he decided to build one by himself.
The principle of shock disinfection with ozone is to fill the cleaned area with a sufficient concentration of ozone, which will take care of the effective elimination of all viruses, bacteria, odors and other undesirable substances.Watch the video from Maciej Nowak Projects where he builds a high-efficiency ozone generator for disinfecting and cleaning rooms.
An ozone generator is a device designed to produce the gas ozone. Ozone is used effectively in water purification, but ozone in air must reach high levels to remove air pollutants.These machines create ozone by taking oxygen and forcing it forcing it through a high voltage metallic grid. The high voltage splits apart the oxygen molecules into single atoms.
These atoms then attach to other O2 molecules in the air to form ozone (O3.)Health experts warn that it is important to control conditions to ensure that no person or pet becomes exposed to high levels of ozone. Disclaimer: don’t try this at home.
