Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause diseases ranging from the common cold to more severe conditions, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A new coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.
SARS-Cov-2 or COVID-19 is the most recently discovered infectious disease caused by the coronavirus. This new virus and was unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.
Top Ozone equipment will prevent the spread of the new coronavirus beyond the act of washing hands, and it will also be prudent to disinfect the spaces we usually use, such as offices, retail workplaces, etc.
Ozone a Powerful Oxidiser
Ozone is a powerful oxidiser that eliminates microorganisms effectively. Ozone applications in water and wastewater treatments are well documented and widely used.
Although studies on the use of Ozone to disinfect air are relatively limited, experimental results indicate that Ozone can also be an effective disinfectant in the air, as in water. For example, Kowalski etc. all investigated the bactericidal effects of high concentrations of Ozone in E. coli and S. aureus. It concluded that more than 99.99% of mortality was achieved for both species after ozonation. In addition to the strong oxidising power of Ozone, the properties of Ozone also help it to be an ideal aerial disinfectant. Unlike UV radiation and the HEPA filter, Ozone is a gas that can penetrate all corners of the area and therefore can effectively disinfect the entire area, including the fabric and contents within. As Ozone is unstable, it is readily converted back to oxygen, leaving no harmful residual ozone after disinfection.
Given the advantages of strong oxidising power, good penetration capacity and absence of harmful residues after treatment, the use of Ozone in the disinfection of SARS contaminated environments is recommended.
As the structure of the new coronavirus COVID-19 is almost identical to that of the coronavirus SARS, it can be confidently inferred that it will also work on the new coronavirus with the exception that there are no completed studies to date. (Up-date pending)
The ozonation system is the best ally for these types of situations, and its production does not require reagents. It can be installed in one place and operate as needed or, used alternately for a few minutes in different areas within the same building.
Top Ozone installation is effortless; it consists merely of placing the ozone generator in the area to be treated. Turn on the Unit and let the equipment run for the defined time.
Ozone propagation reaches everywhere, floor, walls, ceilings, fabrics, furnishings, desks, seating, clothes, computers, etc.
In addition to disinfection, Top Ozone application also Treats and Kills:
- the elimination of bad odours (tobacco, alcohol, fried foods, perfume, etc.);
- the elimination of the effect of allergens (pollen, dust, mites, mould, etc.);
- the resolution of the mould problem (neutralisation of spores and inhibition of mould growth).
Portable or fixed equipment
Top Ozone is produced dispensed applied through portable or fixed equipment.
The portable equipment can be used in different spaces alternately, and the fixed equipment will be installed and operating in a definitive location and according to the necessary times.
Top Ozone’s Sterilising units are currently being used across many industries in Ireland UK & across Europe.
Top Ozone Sterilisation/disinfection is essential today for the ( Hairdressing Salon’s, Barbershops, Gyms, Hotels, shopping centres, casinos, cinemas, restaurants, pubs, etc.).
