Difference between ozone and ultraviolet in space disinfection

The disinfection of food factories, cosmetics factories and pharmaceutical factories is very important. Disinfection equipment is required in the clean room. Both ozone disinfection and UV disinfection are commonly used disinfection tools.

Ultraviolet rays destroy the DNA or RNA function of microorganisms by appropriate ultraviolet wavelengths, so that they are lethal to achieve the purpose of sterilization, and can kill various microorganisms under the irradiation range.

Ultraviolet light has the characteristics of rapid, high-efficiency and non-polluting sterilization in the application of surface sterilization. However, the shortcomings are also obvious. The penetrability is weak, humidity and dust of the environment will affect the disinfection effect. The applicable space is small and the irradiation is effective at the height of the specified range. The disinfection has a dead angle, place that cannot be irradiated can’t be disinfected.

Ozone is a strong oxidant, which is safe, efficient and broad-spectrum. The sterilization process is a biochemical oxidation reaction. By oxidizing the enzymes inside the bacteria, destroying its metabolism and ultimately leading to death, it can kill various kinds of bacterial and virus in specified ozone concentration.

In the field of indoor disinfection, ozone has the functions of purifying air, sterilizing, deodorizing, and removing odor. Ozone can kill bacterial propagules and spores, viruses, fungi, and the like. In the production workshop, it can disinfect the production equipment and packaging material to ensure meet safety standards. Ozone is a kind of gas that flows throughout the space to achieve the effect of disinfection without dead angle. After disinfection, the ozone is decomposed into oxygen without secondary pollution.

Dino Purification’s ozone generator is easy to operate and has a timing function. It is suitable for automatic disinfection every day after the worker gets off work, without special personnel. It can also be moved to different workshops, greatly improving portability.
