Aeroqual Cloud Based Air Monitoring

WHY AEROQUAL CLOUD GIVES YOU THE BEST AIR MONITORING EXPERIENCE

We recently released a cloud based instrument operating system, Aeroqual Cloud, now for use on the AQM 65. In conjunction with Aeroqual Connect, Aeroqual Cloud helps you stay connected to the instrument and access your data wherever you may be giving you a high quality air monitoring experience.

For a general introduction to Connect and Cloud, check out this video:

Both Connect and Cloud are accessed through your web browser (no software install required) and appear quite similar, so people often ask us why they need Cloud when they already have Connect…

Here is what we tell them!

1. CLOUD GIVES YOU THE FASTEST ACCESS TO YOUR AIR QUALITY DATA

You access Aeroqual Cloud the same way you do Gmail, for example. The data is stored on third party servers and you access it over the internet using your office or home broadband connection. Most people these days enjoy speeds of 2MB/s or better. So if you want to get access to the instrument or your data browsing from page to page in Aeroqual Connect will be just as fast as browsing any webpage.

Aeroqual Connect on the other hand is a direct connection from your computer, tablet or phone to the computer on the instrument. If that connection is made over a cellular modem, every new page will require data to pass over the cellular network. This greatly reduces browsing speeds compared to a normal broadband connection.

2. CLOUD LETS YOU ACCESS YOUR AIR QUALITY DATA EVEN WHEN THE INSTRUMENT IS OFFLINE

The cellular network can be unreliable. Power cuts can also occur. There might be an instrument fault. In these events you will be unable to access your data via Aeroqual Connect.

Because Cloud backs up data to third party servers, you can always go to Cloud to access your data. It will be current right up until the moment the outage occurred.

This also means your data is completely secure. Even if you lose the data from your PC or the on-board instrument storage fails – Aeroqual Cloud will have a complete record of every measurement you ever made.

3. DATA COSTS ARE LOWER WITH AEROQUAL CLOUD

For those accessing the instrument remotely over the cellular network data usage costs will be a factor. Every page load in Aeroqual Connect uses data over the cellular network. Downloading data will too.

Aeroqual Cloud syncs data between the cloud servers and the instrument. Sync-ing uses cellular data, but accessing the data on the cloud servers does not. So interacting with Aeroqual Cloud will use less data than interacting with Aeroqual Connect.

Data usage costs could get high if the instrument was being accessed by several different users. Each person would be interacting with the instrument, viewing and downloading data. In cases like this Aeroqual Cloud would be a much better option.

4. TRIGGER AIR QUALITY ALARMS OVER SMS AND EMAIL

Only Cloud gives you the ability to set SMS and email alarms.

Let’s say you are in charge of a large mine site and the neighbours get upset when the wind blows dust in their direction. Cloud lets you set up an alarm that will trigger when dust reaches X on the monitor closest to the neighbours. You will get a notification either by SMS or email that the limit has been reached. You can then initiate a response to bring the dust levels under control. The same could apply for a power station – where SO2 leaks might be a concern. Or a roadside station where NO2 might reach dangerous levels.

In addition the alarm can be based on more than one parameter. So it could be based on X ppm SO2 and wind direction being SSW. Cloud let’s you choose multiple parameters. It also let’s you set unlimited number of alarms and send them to an unlimited number of email and SMS recipients.

5. MANAGE THE WAY DIFFERENT USER GROUPS ACCESS YOUR AIR MONITOR

Cloud gives you much more control over user administration. Advanced user access management means different access levels can be granted to different parties. For example, you may give the local distributor who sold you the equipment advanced access rights; you might give your local government agency view-only rights.

Cloud also gives Aeroqual much better access to your instrument. This means if there are any problems we can quickly and easily look up the data, check the instrument log, and view the settings. If it turns out there’s a problem we can remotely adjust settings to correct the problem. Or we can instruct you or the distributor how to fix the problem. Having the manufacturer connected to your instrument gives you a huge amount of confidence.

Water savings in restaurant kitchens using ozone!

Water conservation throughout the world continues to be important.  Ozone technologies can play a large role in the conservation of water, and the safe re-use of waters.  EnviroPure has found a creative way to save water in the foodservice industry.  With water bans in California and certainly coming to more states this could be very valuable and useful product.

NRA’s Kitchen Innovations Award given to EnviroPure ozone recirculation system

TRAVELERS REST, S.C. — T&S Brass and Bronze Works announced its EnviroPure ozone recirculation option has received the Kitchen Innovations Award from the National Restaurant Association (NRA), according to a press release.

The ozone recirculation option is designed to eliminate the need to add fresh water during the organic food waste disposal system’s digestive process, and instead, rely on naturally extracted water from food waste as it processes through the system, stated the release.

“A typical foodservice operation could expect to save about 400 gallons of water a day using this ozone infusion option,” said EnviroPure Systems Inc. President Jim Slanina. “At a time when we’re beginning to realize water is not an unlimited resource, we think this will be a welcome innovation.”

The EnviroPure system has received several industry awards since its acquisition by T&S in 2013, noted the release.

“We’re terrifically pleased that the NRA has recognized the uniqueness of this new ozone treatment option,” stated Slanina. “To the best of our knowledge, no other process like it exists in the market, and we’re very excited about having an impact both on saving water and keeping food waste out of landfills.”

The EnviroPure ozone recirculation option will be featured at the Kitchen Innovations Pavilion at booth 2440 during the NRA Show 2015, noted the release.

Gassens A14-A11 Modular Gas Detector

The A14-A11 is one of the most popular fixed mount gas detection systems for ozone gas ever used.  You will see these sensors in use on many ozone system installations around the world.  This is not by mistake.  The A14 continues to be one the best values and most reliable ozone sensor on the market today.

Can ozone eliminate Scent and Odor?

The answer is yes.  Ozone use in eliminating odor in homes, cars, and businesses has been popular for many years.  In recent years ozone use for hunting has grown in popularity.  As ozone generator technology improves ozone generators become smaller, lighter, and more portable.  This along with battery technology has allowed ozone generators be used for hunting applications to eliminate (not mask but eliminate) human odors.

The article below describes the use of ozone to fool a trained drug sniffing dog.  It is important to point out that this dog was trained to find the scent of humans, and was actively looking for the human.  This is a very different scenario when hunting deer or turkey who are not looking for humans, and are not trained to find them.

This proves very well that ozone does work to eliminate odors of humans and could be an awesome tool for hunting!

Does it Work? Ozone Scent Control vs. Drug-Sniffing Dog

Article by Scott Bestul

You’ve had your head in the clouds if you’ve missed the de-scents-itizing hype of companies selling ozone-generating products. Ozone, they claim, contains an extra oxygen molecule that attaches itself to other molecules—say, b.o. molecules—and changes their structure. I’m eager to examine any deer hunting trend and, if necessary, flip it on its head. So I enlisted Chance, a highly trained police dog, to test ozone’s effectiveness. I’ve watched Chance’s nose zip through every sort of no-scent solution and was fully prepared for an ozone rout. But that’s not exactly what I got.

 

As a refresher: Our scent tests* are set up just like the training exercises used by K-9 officers. In the box test, police dogs are taught to find a “bad guy” hiding in one of six square boxes, spaced evenly across a large field. First, I sat in each box for a full minute, leaving behind a trace of human scent. Then it was up to Chance to find the member of my test team (hunting buddies Bob Borowiak, Tony Houdek, and Tom VanDoorn; and my father, Marv) who had climbed into one of the boxes. To start each trial, the handler took Chance off the leash, then ordered: “Find him!” At this command, I started my stopwatch and timed how long it took Chance to bust the hunter.

 

Test No. 1
Setup As a control test, Houdek jumped in a box, wearing street clothes.

Result Chance barked at his box after only 14 seconds.

Analysis Dogs performing this drill are marked down if they bark at the wrong box, so it’s not unusual for them to check every one—even if they get a strong whiff at one of the first. Chance’s head snapped around as soon as he passed Houdek’s box, but he checked every box before racing back. Had he reacted immediately to that first scent (as a whitetail would have), Chance could have cut this time in half.

 

Test No. 2
Setup To assess how a classic scent-control method would fare, ­VanDoorn, an expert whitetail hunter who swears by baking soda, took a shower in no-scent soap mixed with soda and then dressed in clothes washed in a similar combination, plus powdered with soda. He then rubbed more of it in his hair, on his socks, and in his boots.

Result Chance found VanDoorn in 19 seconds.

Analysis Chance showed no noticeable reaction the first time he ran past VanDoorn, and he checked all six boxes. Even though VanDoorn’s trusted in-the-field system cheated Chance’s nose for a few extra seconds, the difference wasn’t pronounced. I was a little surprised by this, given ­VanDoorn’s success at fooling deer—but not as surprised as VanDoorn.

 

Test No. 3
Setup Before the test, my dad took a no-scent shower and placed a ScentPurge 50, an ozone-generating unit designed to infuse clothing with ozone (whitetailr.com), into a plastic tub that held his hat, boots, and two layers of camo clothing for 30 minutes. Dad dressed in these treated clothes just before entering the box.

Result Chance needed 42 seconds to find my dad.

Analysis The dog ran the entire course twice before marking Dad’s location. Though he did a slight head bob toward the correct box on the first lap, it was clear that the smell of ozone was confusing Chance. This was one of the most dramatic delays of Chance’s success in all the years we’ve conducted these tests.

 

Test No. 4
Setup Borowiak took a no-scent shower and dressed in hunting clothes that he’d washed in no-scent soap. He carried an Ozonics unit ­(ozonics​­hunting.​com) meant for mounting near a treestand or in a blind, ran it for a minute inside the box before the test began, and left it on throughout.

Result It took Chance 50 seconds to find Borowiak.

 

Analysis

Even the handler was stunned at how long it took Chance to find Bob. Again, the dog ran two full laps before choosing the right box, and his first bark was tentative—like a guess. This was the most shocking result in four years of testing. We’d put Borowiak’s other no-scent regimens under Chance’s scrutiny before, and the dog had found Bob almost immediately. Yet the addition of ozone confused that nose for nearly one minute, which amazed everyone.

Nothing—not even ozone—will completely cover human odor. But if you can muddy the olfactory water for 50 seconds, that’s plenty of time for you to get a shot at a monster buck.

OG-3 CALIBRATION USING THE UV-100 OZONE ANALUZER

Tech note from EcoSensors

The Eco Sensors UV-100 calibration can be fairly accurately monitored using the Eco Sensors OG-3 Calibration Checker if the calibration of the OG-3 is checked and adjusted for accuracy at the user’s altitude. The OG-3 is calibrated in Eco Sensors’ laboratory at 2,100 meters. At lower altitudes the OG-3 will generate ozone at a slightly higher concentration than the standard .1 ppm due to the higher molecular density of air at lower altitudes. This difference in OG-3 output is not significant for checking the calibration of the semiconductor sensor (HMOS) Eco Sensor instruments, but may warrant slight adjustment for checking the calibration of the higher precision UV-100.

OG-3 OZone Checker
OG-3 Ozone Checker

 

First, the OG-3 and UV-100 should have their calibrations synchronized when both instruments arrive from the factory to a calibration site with approximately the same altitude as the end user of the UV-100. This calibration checking should be done in relatively gas free air in an air conditioned room with essentially no direct outside air present.

  1. Allow a one hour warm-up for both the OG-3 and the UV-100
  2. Attach the short 10 mm (3/8″) outside diameter tube to the UV-100 air filter input barb and fit its other end just inside the 10 mm hole on the bottom of the OG-3. Do not extend it far into the OG-3. A few mm is sufficient. Any further in will reduce the calibration accuracy.
  3. After at least one minute, read the UV-100. It will typically be slightly different than .1 ppm – usually slightly higher. Align the tubing in the OG-3 hole in step (2) to maximize the UV-100 reading without pushing the tubing more than a few mm into the OG-3.
  4. Record the UV-100 reading. For example, if it is .11 ppm, future calibration check readings can be adjusted downward by .01 ppm.
  5. Alternately, the OG-3 calibration can be slightly adjusted for greater accuracy by:
    • Remove the black round tape patch on the calibration access hole near the power jack input.
    • The reading on the UV-100 will go down slightly because of the ozone leak through the calibration access hole.
    • Slightly adjust the calibration pot with an instrument screwdriver so that the apparent OG-3 output declines by the offset factor described above – .01 ppm in our example.
    • Replace the access hole patch and check for .1 ppm output as read on the UV- 100.

UNF launches ozone sensor

By Deanna Bettineschi

Full story here:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —

A University of North Florida physics professor and his student team launched an ozone sensing device to the edge of space.

According to the professor, it flew to the edge of space to a record-breaking height of 102,200 ft.

This February, with the help of a commercial balloon space flight company and United Parachute,  it was launched from Arizona into the earth’s stratosphere to detect the ozone.

Student Ken Emanuel said detecting the ozone layer is important.

“The depletion of the ozone layer is a phenomenon related to different gases that come from us as humans. So keeping an eye on the ozone layer is an important entity,” said Emanuel.



Physics professor Dr. Nirmal Patel said the payload took about a six hour flight, and then landed in the New Mexico desert.

The data from the sensors were collected and then downloaded for the team to study.

“We’d compare, and hopefully, see what’s going on with the ozone, whether it’s being depleted. Right now, there’s no instance of holes, but in the future comparison of the data will tell us,” said team member Brittany Nassau.

Patel said depletion of the ozone layer would mean there would be more possibilities of harmful ultraviolet light passing through the stratosphere and hitting the earth.

The team said they will continue to study the data over time and send more payloads to the edge of space.

They hope to send another payload up in September 2015.


A-21ZX OZONE SENSOR REPLACEMENT

This information is specific to the A-21ZX as it is the most popular ozone sensor EcoSensors sells.  While the general information found in this article are specific to the A-21ZX, the technical aspects are the same for the EZ-1X, C-30ZX, and OS-1X sensors.  Should you have any questions about the details of your sensor please contact Gas Sensing.

Handheld ozone monitor

Replacing the sensor and recalibrating the instrument should only be attempted by a trained and experienced gas instrument technician.

Tools required: small Phillipsewdriver, fine point low power soldering iron, needle nose pliers, and assorted small tools. An ozone source of known output will also be required for calibration.

Be sure the A-21ZX is turned off and its AC adapter is unplugged from the instrument. Remove the four screws attaching the back cover and remove the cover. Carefully lift the circuit board about 4 cm. Care must be taken not to break any of the wires going to the sensor or to the panel meter.

The sensor is the 10 mm diameter gray part which protrudes through the top of the instrument. Pushing it slowly but firmly with your thumb will break it loose from the case.

Before disconnecting any wires from the sensor, put a little coloring or other unique identifier on each wire and make a drawing showing which wire goes to which pin on the sensor. The identification of the sensor pins can be made by noting as for example pin #1 the pin which is welded directly to the sensor’s metal base.

Our sensors now are usually shipped with connection wires attached. If the replacement sensor has no wires attached, cut the replacement sensors pins to about 4 mm in length and solder the lead wires to the replacement sensor’s pins according to your notes above. In either case, the replacement sensor should be rewired to the circuit board.

Arrange the finished reconnections so that no short circuits will develop. Push the new sensor into the case until it fits snugly and won’t fall out. DO NOT EXCESSIVELY TOUCH THE GRILL AREA OF THE SENSOR, OR LET OILS, ETC. SETTLE THERE, BECAUSE THIS CAN CHANGE OR NULLIFY THE SENSOR’S OPERATION. THE GRILL AREA MUST REMAIN DRY AND FREE OF CHEMICALS.

Replace the circuit board and back cover of the case.

Turn the instrument on. The meter should read 0.00 or close to 0.00. If this is not the case, the sensor was not wired correctly and its wiring should be rechecked.

Plug in the AC adapter and leave the instrument powered for at least 2 days and preferably one week. This is required to condition or “burn in” the sensor. Preferred technique is to leave the instrument running in several ppm of ozone during the last two days of its burn-in. This will assure more correct and stable calibration.

Recalibrate with a known concentration ozone source and by adjusting the screw pot (span pot) accessed through a patch-covered hole in the left side of the case.

 Note: The OS-1X is mentioned in this article, however it is no longer in production.  We still offer service, repair, calibration, and support for your OS-1X as long as it is operational.

Ozone Used in Wine production

“It’s just water”

read full story HERE

Beurskens has combined forces with a small number of North American viticulturists to pilot an innovative new solution – ozone. Ozone-enriched sprays (where oxygen molecules are split to transform from O2 to O3) have long been used for everything from cleaning swimming pools to disinfecting oak barrels in the winery. What’s new is the idea of spraying ozone onto vines, something which has been pioneered by fellow Dutchman Ernie Wilmink and his company Agriozein.

The theory is captivating, even if Beursken’s assertion that “it’s just water” is simplistic. Ozone is hugely oxidative, and capable of destroying the cell walls of bacteria within seconds. As such, it is a significantly more effective disinfectant than chlorine (hence the popularity with swimming pool owners). With a half-life of 25 mins, ozone reverts safely back to oxygen very swiftly, so there are no residues to worry about either.

What about the practice? Beurskens told me “It’s effective, but not on every grape variety” – and there are quite a few to worry about at Sint Martinus. Beurskens is committed to growing a number of newer crosses and hybrids, which he feels give his winery more of a unique selling position.  So amongst Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc you’ll also find Monarch, Pinotin, Cabernet Cortis and Souvignier Gris to name just a few. Sharp-eyed readers will note that these new varieties are bred to be more disease-resistant on their own.

This may not yet be a perfect solution – the equipment to convert water into ozone isn’t cheap, and ozone’s volatility means the conversion process has to take place in the field – Agriozein sells a sprayer/ozonator unit at around $25,000. Concerns have also been voiced about potential leaf damage to the vines.

ECOSENSORS CALIBRATION INFORMATION

EcoSensors devices have a variety of different sensors and calibration options and prodedures.  These will vary by product and sensor used in that product.  See the list below for your specific sensor and relevant calibration information.  First, follow our short list of FAQ’s to familirize yourself with general calibration inforamtion.

ECOSENSORS FAQ AND GENERAL INFORMATION

WILL I GET A CALIBRATION CERTIFICATE?

Yes, all EcoSensors products are shipped with a recent calibration certificate showing NIST traceability

HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY SENSOR BE CALIBRATED?

Factory calibration should be performmed annually on all EcoSensors products to ensure maximum accuracy and safety.

CAN I BUMP-TEST MY ECOSENSORS PRODUCT?

Yes, most EcoSensors products measure ozone.  A small ambient air ozone generator can be used to bump test the sensor.  These are low cost and readily available.

The C-21, and C-12 are VOC sensors.  A simple Sharpie marker near the sensor will be a great bump test.  Sufficient VOC gasses are emiited from an uncapped marker to bump-test these sensors.

EcoSensors Product line
 

ECOSENSORS PRODUCTS

A-22, OS-6, OS-4, SM-X, SM-4, SM-6 AND SM-7

These sensors all use the SM-X ozone sensor chip. 

SM-X Replacement Ozone Sensor

The SM-X is a mass proeduced, yet accurate ozone sensor that is considered disposable.  There is no calibration option for this esnsor.  The expectation is that this $150 sensor chip is replaced annually with a new sensor chip.  The SM-X is only available in one range, 0-20 ppm, each device may use that data and display differently, however we keep it simple and can use the same sensor for each device listed above.

The SM-X carries all calibration data, along with a humidity sensor for humidity compensation that is calibrated to work with the sensor.  No calibration alterations are necessary or possible with the SM-X sensor chip.

Each of these sensors calibration can be checked throughout the year, using the OG-3 Calibration Checker.  The OG3 will easily and quickly verify that the SM-X incorporated on your device is still accurate and reading ozone correctly.

 

OEM-1, OEM-2, AND OS-3

Note: the OS-3 Ozone Sensors are not currently in production, however we can service these devices as long as they continue to function in your application.

These devices all use the SM Replacement Ozone Sensors.

SEN-1 Replacement zone Sensor

These sensors are not designed to be calibrated or serviced after getting put in use.  Therefore the sensor is simply replaced with new, and the old sensor is disposed of.  No return policy is required for the old sensor.  The cost of the replacement sensor is only $99.  This low cost is lower than any factory calibration offered by any vendor we are aware of!

The spare sensor module is availabe in 3 ranges, 0.1, 1.0, and 10.0 ppm (part numbers, SM-0.1, SM-1.0, and SM-10) The OEM-1 can be used interchangeably with any of these three sensor ranges.  However, the OEM-2 and OS-3 are built and calibrated for one sensor range, ensure you purchage the right sensor range for your device.

Each of these sensors calibration can be checked throughout the year, using the OG-3 Calibration Checker.  The OG3 will easily and quickly verify that the SEN-1 incorporated on your device is still accurate and reading ozone correctly.  While the OEM-1 and OEM-2 do not have displays, there is a method to verify calibration.  The OEM-1 offers a 0-1 VDC ouput that is linear with the range of your sensor.  The OEM-2 provides a 4-20mA output that is linear with the rage of your sensor.  Using a multimeter, or volt meter you are able to verify sensor readings without a display.

EX-1X, A-21ZX, C-30ZX, AND OS-1X

Note: the OS-1X Ozone Sensors are not currently in production, however we can service these devices as long as they continue to function in your application.

These devices all use an integrated sensor.  The best option for calibration is to ship the sensor back to Gas Sensing, or EcoSensors to have a factory calibration performed.  Most often, after 1-year of use the sensor needs to be replaced.  The sensor in these deivces is soldered onto the board and not replaced without some labor.  Follow this link, for detailed instructions on sensor replacement.

If you do choose to purcahse and install your own replacement sensor, they are available for a price of $75 each.  It is the same sensor for each device listed here.

Contact us for information in shipping your sensor to us for factory calibration.  Calibration cost is $225.  This includes the price for a replacement sensor.

Each of these sensors calibration can be checked throughout the year, using the OG-3 Calibration Checker.  The OG3 will easily and quickly verify that the sensor incorporated on your device is still accurate and reading ozone correctly.

 

C-21 VOC SENSOR

The C-21 is a great VOC sensor that can be calibrated and adjusted to respond to many VOC gasses quite accurately.  Eco-Sensors calibrates each C-21 to generic VOC gasses from the factory.

Bump testing of your VOC sensor can also be performed.  We suggestion using something simliar to a common Sharpie marker.  These are common, and off-gas a great deal of VOC gasses.  Placing this near your C-21 will ensure the sensor is still responsive to some VOC gasses.

Testing the VOC sensor with a Sharpie

The C-21 VOC Sensor can be calibrated to your specifications using detailed instructions provided at the link below:

C-21 VOC Sensor Calibration Instructions

Replacement sensors for the C-21 are available from Gas Sensing for $50.  Please contact us for ordering information.

Contact us for information in shipping your device to us for factory calibration.

OG-3 CALIBRATION

The OG-3 is a calibration checker designed and built by EcoSensors specifically for EcoSensors products.  The OG-3 is a great low cost reference standard for EcoSensors products.  A UV-lamp is used to produce a known amount of ozone from the OG-3.  It is usually calibrated to 0.1, 1.0 or 10.0 ppm.

The OG-3 ozone output should be checked and adjusted periodically (depending upon use) to kep it accurate.  We provide calibration service and repair for the OG-3.

OG-3 Calibration = $150

OG-3 lamp replacement (includes calibration) = $325

Replacement OG-3 Lamp = $175

Contact us for information in shipping your sensor to us for factory calibration.

Using the UV-100 Ozone Analyzer the OG-3 ozone output can be verified and adjusted as needed.  See details on this process at the link below:

OG-3 Calibration Instructions using the UV-100 Ozone Analzyer

The UV lamp used inside the OG-3 will get weak and require replaceemnt after some time.  If you find your OG-3 lamp is in need of replacement we can provide service to replace this lamp, or you can purchase a lamp from us, install, and calibrate your OG-3 with a UV-100 Ozone Analzyer.

Ozone Therapy: Hope for Chronic Illnesses

By Rick Ansorge

When patients come to Howard Robins, they have been sick for a long time, they’ve tried conventional treatments, and they are running out of hope. They come to him with chronic fatigue, lupus, herpes, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, cancer, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and more.

Very often, they leave his care not only with hope, but with their health restored.
Robins, an international expert in natural healing, is one of the world’s leading practitioners of ozone therapy, a technique in which a patient’s blood is infused with medical grade oxygen (O2) and ozone (O3).
“The people who are coming to me have pretty much given up,” Robins tells Newsmax Health. “They find out ozone exists and that it might have a chance to help them.”
In most cases, it works wonders, he says.
“The earlier a person comes in with any condition, the better we can fix them,” he says. “If it’s not too late, then we can turn it around, sometimes to the point where they don’t have any symptoms anymore.”
Ozone was first used in medicine at the end of the 19th century to treat tuberculosis.
During World War I, medics used it to disinfect wounds. Since the 1950s, ozone therapy has gained popularity throughout the world. More than 45,000 physicians in 50 countries now administer ozone.
Ozone is typically administered with one of two different IV methods:
Major Auto-Hemotherapy (MAH), in which blood is drawn from the patient, exposed to ozone and re-injected into the patient.
 
Direct Intravenous Ozone Therapy (DIV), in which oxygen and ozone are directly infused into the patient’s bloodstream.
Although MAH improves many diseases and conditions, it rarely eliminates them. So many doctors prefer DIV, which is safer to perform, yet more powerful in its effects.
“DIV is the only way you can get rid of something,” says Robins.
According to proponents, ozone therapy is broadly effective because it attacks and removes disease-causing agents, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, molds, yeast, and toxic metals.
Because ozone is an oxygen molecule without an electron, it is attracted to electron-rich microorganisms. After it strips away the organisms’ electrons, the cause of the disease dies.
Healthy human cells aren’t affected because they produce antioxidants that make them impervious to ozone.
Ozone also has the ability to chelate toxic metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum, and arsenic, a process which transforms the metals into oxides that are excreted from the body in urine.
Ozone is used to treat:
Infectious diseases such as candida, Epstein-Barr, hepatitis B and C, herpes 1 and 2, herpes zoster, HIV/AIDS, Lyme disease, measles, and pneumonia.
 
Chronic conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS), dementia, fibromyalgia, heart disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), and scleroderma.
 
Eye problems such as conjunctivitis, diabetic retinopathy, dry eye, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
 
Skin problems such as acne and eczema.
Although ozone therapy is often denigrated by mainstream physicians in the U.S., in other countries such as Germany, it is considered safe and a standard of care.
“When people ask why ozone therapy isn’t more available in the United States, I say it’s because it’s not a patentable medicine and the drug companies can’t make any money off it,” says Robins. “That’s probably the main reason why it’s been suppressed.”
