Ozone (O3) is a gas composed of 3 oxygen atoms combined in a ring. Ozone itself is a blue coloured gas, which has a distinct odour, and is about one and a half times heavier than air. When it is under pressure, it is an unstable gas that decomposes readily into molecular oxygen.

They wipe out unwanted odours and render the air clean and fresh before reverting back to oxygen.

Google is our friend. Was thinking of getting one of these. They control odour and bacteria in the air by the above method.

be careful with it and DO NOT use it until you read of its harmful properties. it can kill you and your plants.

it can be useful for smells. but i returned mine to DH. waste of money, just buy a carbon filter and be safe.

:)

if it was free i would remove it and sell it to get a carbon filter!


:peace:

yea, you caaaaaaan

but then you add to ground level ozone (pollution). i would just not use it, and hook up a carbon filter to the exhaust (blowing into filter).

I never gave a thought to hooking my filter up so that I exhaust INTO it.
I have mine arranged so that my fan sucks air through the filter, then through cooltube 1, then the fan, then pushing air into cooltube 2 and outt hrough a window.

Would I be better having my filter at the end of the chain instead of the beginning?
Thanks W

I found this.

How is Ozone Harmful?

The same chemical properties that allow high concentrations of ozone to react with organic material outside the body give it the ability to react with similar organic material that makes up the body, and potentially cause harmful health consequences. When inhaled, ozone can damage the lungs (see - "Ozone and Your Health" -www.epa.gov/airnow/brochure.html). Relatively low amounts can cause chest pain, coughing, shortness of breath, and, throat irritation. Ozone may also worsen chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and compromise the ability of the body to fight respiratory infections. People vary widely in their susceptibility to ozone. Healthy people, as well as those with respiratory difficulty, can experience breathing problems when exposed to ozone. Exercise during exposure to ozone causes a greater amount of ozone to be inhaled, and increases the risk of harmful respiratory effects. Recovery from the harmful effects can occur following short-term exposure to low levels of ozone, but health effects may become more damaging and recovery less certain at higher levels or from longer exposures (US EPA, 1996a, 1996b).

short. yes.

i am a pioneer of this. LoL

i even had to explain to a shop owner that i have been doing it since day one.


now, why it works better: if you blow all your air into a filter, then all the air is sucked from the room and blown into the filter. if there is a leak, so what! the fan is sucking stink into the leaks and filtering them.

if you suck in FROM the filter, and have a small leak in the system (I have YET to see a perfectly sealed hood and i own EIGHT), then smell is PRESSURIZED from the room without ever entering the filter.

so simple i dont know why any person would suck from a filter.

weedhopper, we were sold one in 2001. my father passed from stage 3 renal failure last feb. I am not blaming the device one bit, but we purchased one for 800$ to help with his heart/lung condition. We were sold snake oil. Plain and simple. It did not help my pop...it only could have take away some time he had by aggrevating his lung disease caused by heart disease (caused by rheumatic fever at 6 months old).


I didnt want to get all high and mighty this thing is deadly on everyone but they are not safe and are sold as air purifiers. :(

yea ive seen people build boxes around the filter. basicly the air from the room blows into and thru the filter and fills the box. the air inside the box is exausted outside.. also ive seen people put the Ozone Gen inside this box.. but idk.. my room is seald so i just run my carbon filter in the room to scrub the air..
