What is aeration?

Ozone can dissolve in water but some may be released into atmosphere, and this release is called aeration. According to U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA), high ozone level in the air can cause respiratory sensitivity and coughing. These are relieved when you leave for a well-ventilated place, and there is no risk of intoxication.

“BHS” Biolux satisfies United States and Japanese safety aeration standards on ozone use.
The mean level is less than 0.3ppm in 15 minutes of consecutive use.
The mean level is less than 0.1ppm in 8 hours of intermittent use.
You can feel at ease for using “BHS” Biolux.

What is ozonated water?

Ozone is the “activated oxygen” and ozonated water is prepared by dissolving ozone into water. Gas is difficult to control as its movement is largely random and difficult to control. By using water as a medium, we can utilize ozone more effectively and safely.

Can I take ozonated water?

Ozonated water is primarily used for disinfection and sterilization, and is not recommended as drinking water. When ozonated water enters the oral cavity, ozone reacts with the bacteria and is reduced to oxygen, malodor is also addressed during this process. This leaves your mouth fresh and clean, and shows that ozonated water is not harmful to human body.

Can I clean face and hands with ozonated water.

Absolutely. Ozonated water removes bacteria on skin and disintegrates the dead cells on stratum corneum to give you clean skin.

Rub and wash hands with typical soap provides hand cleanliness and removal of certain bacteria. Five or more minutes of rinsing is required to achieve 90+% bacterial kill.

Ozonated water contains 6.0ppm ozone, which kills 99.99% bacteria within 5 seconds (3000 times as effective when compared to chlorine). It is safe and highly efficient.

Can ozonated water be used for cooking?

Ozonated water can be used for disinfection and sterilization without chemical residues. It will definitely be a good partner for cleaning food materials. When ozonated water is used for cooking, the reduction of ozone to oxygen is accelerated with heat and does not cause safety concerns.

What is the recommended way of vegetable cleaning?

We recommend the method introduced by Consumers’ Foundation but better effectiveness can be achieved with ozonated water:

1. Handling/rinsing/brushing: Remove and discard remaining stem, root and shoot, and clean soil, sand and insect eggs with tap water.

2. Immersion: Immerse in ozonated water for 10~15 minutes and replace the (ozonated) water for 2~3 times Volume required for immersing vegetables: Six liters of water for each catty of vegetable (Six liters can be acquired in two minutes)

3. Rinse again with ozonated water right before cooking Reference:

Under what circumstances will nature produce ozone?

When thunderstorm, the oxygen in the air will be electrolyzed into ozone due to high voltage; oxygen will be due to the sun in the ultraviolet radiation and decomposition of the ozone molecules.u000bu000b
This is why after the thunderstorm we will smell the fresh grass incense, and in the outdoor clothes smell the sun on the clothes taste, in fact, these are the taste of ozone.

At what richness is ozone effective in dissolved form?

In Japanese medical facilities, hand washing and disinfection require at least 4.0ppm, and commercially available application for vegetables in Western countries (Europe and United States) requires at least 2.0ppm.

Isn’t pesticide residue removable with salt?

According to J.L. Chung, nutritionist of Taiwan Mackay Memorial Hospital, “Using concentrated, hypertonic salty water in vegetable and fruit cleaning can lead to sodium ion residue.” 。

Besides vegetable cleaning, salty water is also used in handling apple and other iron-rich vegetables and fruits that are prone to color change. Taking “sweet” vegetables and fruits that may contain excessive sodium ion by soaking in salty water can make hypertension and kidney disease control much more difficult. Reference

Bleach is easy to obtain, so why ozonated water?

Bleach kills bacteria with chlorine’s oxidative activity, but nearly everyone knows the downside of chlorine residues。

Ozone in ozonated water is reduced to oxygen without residues after the process, it is the natural and environmentally friendly disinfectant.

Is activated oxygen safe? Is it harmful to human body?

Activated oxygen is ozone, which is natural oxygen added with an active oxygen atom. It is highly active with its high oxidative ability and is a natural disinfectant. After the oxidation reaction it is reduced to oxygen and leaves no harmful residues.

In several countries, tap water is disinfected with ozone, suggesting that ozone is harmless to human body when adequately controlled.

What is rich ozonated water? What is the difference between rich and non-rich ones?

Every activated oxygen-based product is said to be featured with disinfecting function, but how to select the best one? Ozone richness in water is the key to fast and effective disinfection and sterilization!

Biolux is capable of generating 6.0ppm ozonated water immediately to ensure 99.99+% disinfection effectiveness.

I used ozone before, so what’s so different about Biolux?

Conventional technology generates ozone from air, leading to low concentration and the formation of harmful nitrogen oxides.

Biolux applies the state-of-the-art iEOG technology to generate ozone from water without nitrogen oxides as by-products.

Is activated oxygen water ozone water? What should I take care at purchase?

When purchasing ozone products, it is required to pay attention to the richness of ozone produced, aeration safety, and the risk of nitrogen oxide formation.

Why do some ozone generator manufacturer adapt the volume generated as a specification standard, while “BHS” Biolux applies richness?

They may achieve significant ozone generation but its richness in water is relatively low. Typical ozone water has poor richness and requires 10 or more minutes to complete disinfection and pesticide degradation, while “BHS” ozonated water takes only 5 seconds to reach 99.99% disinfection effectiveness.

In my experience, the house of full of ozone odor when activated oxygen is used. How about Biolux?
