What happens if a compact cleaner produces more ozone than necessary?
If you feel that the compact cleaner produces too much ozone, because it basically has finished cleaning, and you forget to turn off the machine, there is no danger; it is not possible to produce a surplus of ozone with model MAC500.
The smell limit for ozone is approx. 0,02 ppm. After this, the ozone begins to smell like a Xerox machine, that has copied many copies in a row. The Danish Working Environment Service has a limiting value for ozone in a working area which is 0,1 ppm. This means 20 times the amount that has to be present for smelling ozone. The MAC500 cannot produce enough ozone to exceed the limit set by the Danish Working Environment Service
The compact cleaners, model OZ1000 and OZ2000 are more powerful models designed to ”shock treat” rooms, cars, containers etc. These compact cleaners are used to create an ozone residue in the room, and thereafter the compact cleaner has to be turned off. If one of these models are present and turned on in the same room for too long, the amount of ozone can exceed the limit of the Danish Working Environment Service. We therefore recommend that no one is present in the room while treating with ozone.
What happens if too much ozone is produced in the extract system?
Ozone is an unstable form of oxygen that will chemically decompose to oxygen again maximum 20 minutes after the KPC-unit has been turned off.
How does ozone remove grease from the extract system?
Ozone “oxidises”grease and oil: This means a cold combustion that can be compared to a warm combustion.
Which substances remain after applying a compact cleaner for elimination of smoke?
Inside the compact cleaner model MAC500, the air is being sterilized, which means that bacteria, viruses, and yeasts, if any, are eliminated. Also, a small amount of ozone is produced which eliminates odor from the air and from the surface of the room. What comes out of the compact cleaner is mainly sterilized air and ozone.
A residual product if any is only made in the room, after the oxidation process, as carbon dioxide and water, but in such a small amount that it will be very difficult to measure.
Therefore it is important to stress, that no foreign or harmful compounds are made. Model OZ1000 and OZ2000 are mainly producing ozone. They also sterilize the air as the lamps’ wavelengths in both models have a sterilizing effect.
