Ozone in short

Ozone is a gas composed by three atoms of oxygen en the chemical symbol is O3. Ozone is a natural sanitizer that has been used for over 150 years.

Ozone, or O3, is created from O2 in the ambient air, in nature most notably during thunderstorms. The scent in the air after a fresh rainfall is the scent of ozone. Ozone thoroughly mixed into water is a powerful sanitizer implemented into numerous applications from industrial treatment, storage and processing of food to residential- and wellness bathing.

Ozone eliminates bacteria, mold, pesticides, odors and have a deep clean result when water is advanced mixed into micro bubbles.

Ozone is first noticed in the 18-th century by a Dutch chemist during an experiment. But the credit of discovery went to the German Christian Schönbein when he succeeded to isolate the gas and named it “ozone”, which means “to smell” in Greece.

O3 is among the most powerful oxidizing agents known and can be applied for sanitizing and deodorizing usage and it is about 3000 time stronger than Chlorine.

In 1893, the Netherlands has used, as the first in the world, O3 to treat the drinking water. In USA, O3 is being used for color removal and taste or odor control.

Studies at California Polytechnic University has pointed out that ozonated water with a ozone – water dissolving ratio of 0.3 µmol/mol, is able to kill 99.9% microorganisms as Salmonella and E.Coli ( see reference below). The same results have been achieved with the Cashido 10 Second Machine, confirmed by third party laboratories with the Cashido 10 Second Machine. On our web-site you will find these reports tested on different type of bacteria.

Due to the fact that ozone is an strong oxidator, it has the ability to remove odor and chemical compounds. Therefore ozonated water is also used to launder clothes, washing food and vegetables. By using of ozonated water for washing the fruits and vegetables, it removes the residue of the pesticide which commonly found on fruits and vegetables nowadays.

The remove rate of pesticides is depended on the chemical reaction between the pesticide and ozone, but the test results have shown that for sure ozonated water removes at least 10 times more pesticide compare with tap water only.

Summary benefit of using ozone:

  • Remove Pesticides: Ozone can destroy the chemical breakdown of pesticides to remove pesticides from the fruits and vegetables you eat.
  • Kill Bacteria: Ozone successfully kills bacteria on food and surfaces. Disinfect and sanitize your food, home, restaurant and business.
  • Remove Odors: Ozone breaks down and destroys odors.

Benefit of the Cashido 10 Second Machine:

  • Safety: Cashido 10 Second Machine has been tested and found that the generated ozone is dissolved in the water, measurement points out that even the gas detector is not able to find ozone gas in the surrounding area, see test report from SGS.
  • Easy install: Installation can be done within a 5 minutes and suitable for most of the existing installations.
  • Reliable: Cashido 10 Second Machine comes with 1 year standard warranty and the warranty will be extended after product registration.
