How to Measure Dissolved Ozone Using the I-2019 Digital Handheld Meter

The Chemetrics I-2019 Dissolved Ozone Meter is a handheld, battery operated device with an LCD screen readout of dissolved ozone levels. The items needed for taking a test of the levels of ozone dissolved in water include: the I-2019 meter, a zeroing cylinder, a new testing ampoule, a light cover, a test cup, activator solution, and, of course, the sample of dissolved ozone.

Always remember that the steps for taking the test must be done quickly to avoid O3 breakdown before the test is completed. Ozone reverts quickly back to oxygen (O2), and if too much time passes from when you add the dissolved ozone to the test cup to when you take the reading, the reading will be lower than what the true ozone level is in your application.

These are the steps:
1. Turn on the I-2019 meter by pressing the ON/OFF button. The O3 symbol will appear on the screen.
2. Place the zeroing ampoule in the meter’s sample port.
3. Place the light shield over the zeroing ampoule.
4. Press ZERO/TEST button. The O3 symbol will flash for 8 seconds, after which the screen readout will read 0.0.0.
5. Remove the zeroing ampoule and set that aside. Keep the light shield for the next steps.
6. Fill the test cup to the 25 mL line with dissolved ozone.
7. Add 5 drops of activator solution to the test cup.
8. Place tip of new testing ampoule in sample cup and snap off tip against the bottom of the test cup. The vial is vacuum sealed and will fill instantly with the sample.
9. Dry the vial, place it in meter’s test port, and cover with the light shield.
10. Wait 1 minute for the test to develop.
11. Press ZERO/TEST button. The O3 symbol will flash for 3 seconds, and then the reading of the dissolved ozone level will appear on the meter’s screen.

How to Wire OS-6 Ozone Monitor to Remote Alarm Panel for O3 Safety Monitoring

The EcoSensors OS-6 Ozone Monitor has a safety control relay built in that is set to activate above the ozone human safety limit of 0.1 ppm. When this relay is wired to the Remote Alarm Panel (RAP-1), a loud audible alarm and flashing light will activate when ozone levels go above 0.1 ppm. This blog explains how to wire the RAP-1 to the safety control relay on the OS-6 Ozone Monitor.

Step 1: Remove the front panel on the OS-6.
Step 2: Insert tip of RAP-1 free cable through one of the nipples on the bottom of the OS-6 monitor.
Step 3: Locate the control relay labeled “ABOVE 0.1 PPM.” Connect the red wire to the Normally Open (N/O) terminal and the black wire to the Common (COM) terminal.
Step 4: Replace the OS-6 front panel.

The OS-6 is now wired to the RAP-1. When mounted on a wall and powered on, an audible and visual alarm will now activate when the ozone levels are above the human safety limit of 0.1 ppm.

Ozone Levels Below 0.1 PPM – Alarm Not Activated
Ozone Levels Above 0.1 PPM – Alarm Activated

Ozone air disinfection

Ozone is a very effective disinfectant and is effective against all viruses and bacteria. Ozone operates according the principle of oxidation. Ozone (O3) is instable and will revert to oxygen (O2) on it’s own, or when it contacts something it can oxidize. Living cells found in bacteria and viruses are very susceptible to oxidation. As ozone enters cells, it oxidizes (destroys) their components including the cell wall. Once ozone has entered, the process destroys all essential components (enzymes, proteins, DNA, RNA). When the cellular membrane is damaged during this process, the cell will fall apart. This is called lysis — the disintegration of a cell by rupture of the cell wall or membrane. From this point there is no recovery and the pathogen is inactivated. Due to the direct oxidation ozone causes (loosing the oxygen atom) there is greater energy to ozone oxidation vs other comparable chemicals.

Most commonly ozone is used dissolved into water. When dissolved in water ozone increases the ORP (oxidation reduction potential) of the water, all of the water is now a sanitizer with electrical potential for pathogen inactivation through lysis. When the water (with sufficient ozone levels) contacts a pathogen it will react with that pathogen inactivity it. This is extremely efficient and effective.

Ozone can also be used in the ambient air in the gaseous form for antimicrobial applications. Ozone in air is a spacial consideration.  The air is not charged as water is when ozone is dissolved in water. Air simply has ozone in within it.

An example. 0.1 ppm ozone is the safe limit for humans in air for an 8 hour period of time.  20.0 ppm is a relatively high level used in rooms at times for disinfection.  This means 20 parts of every 1 million parts of the air are ozone.   This ozone molecule needs to react with a pathogen cell to inactivate it. The likely-hood of this in a short period of time is low. 

As ozone reverts back to oxygen quickly and frequently, longer the exposure times increase the odds of ozone reacting with the pathogen. Ozone reverts back to oxygen faster (shorter half-life) as temperatures and humidity increase. Therefore, higher ozone levels, higher temperatures, and higher humidity will increase the opportunity for ozone to react with pathogens on surfaces.

Ozone levels used for sanitation should be chosen based upon the goals and requirements for this space, and the ambient conditions present. Reasonable levels of 5-10 ppm are commonly used. Higher levels are also possible. Keep in mind any natural rubber materials will be damaged by ozone use at high levels over long periods of time. Therefore, keep ozone levels and frequency of use reasonable.

Attached are documents on the use of ozone in air for antimicrobial uses. These are great resources to use to ensure ozone is the right solution for your application. Should you need more specific information let us know, we will provide what we have.

A few options we have for ozone sanitation in rooms are listed below. These systems can also all be used in an HVAC system to maintain low levels of ozone in a building for room air disinfection.

Operation:

1. Make certain all people, pets, and plants are out of area. Close all windows and doors.

2. Place the Ambient Ozone Generator on a shelf or tabletop as high as possible in the area to be treated.

3. Plug the power cord into a grounded, 3-prong outlet.

4. Set the timer to the desired length of time. Momentarily pressing the UP timer button for one second
will increase the time setting by one minute at a time. Hold the button for 1 -3 seconds to change
the time value by two minutes per second. Hold the button for longer than 3 seconds and the time
setting will change in 20 minutes increments. The maximum time setting is 29:59 hours. After
reaching the maximum time, the timer will wrap back to 00:00 and then continue increasing. When
the time is being decreased and reaches 00:00, it will wrap to 29:59 and continue decreasing.

5. Select the desired power level: 25%; 50%; 75% 100%. The Ambient Ozone Generator always defaults to 100%
when you plug it in. When the output level is set to 100%, the machine makes ozone continuously
until the timer runs out or the OFF button is pressed. At other power level settings, the machine will
produce ozone for the fraction of a minute the level is set at.
For example, if the output level is set to 75%, the machine will produce ozone for 75% (45 seconds) of each minute. At 50%, ozone is generated for 30 seconds of each minute, and at 25%, the ozone generation lasts for 15 seconds of
each minute. On any setting other than 100%, the ozone generator will be cycling the ozone ON and OFF.

6. Turn the unit on by pressing the ON button. Leave the area immediately.

7. When treatment is complete, ventilate the area completely until all smell of ozone is gone. Do NOT allow people, pets, or plants back into the area until all smell of ozone has dissipated.

Sanitize Hands Using SB100 Ozone Spray Bottle

The SB100 Ozone Spray Bottle is a great way to sanitize your hands, and kill any bacteria and viruses on them. The bottle is filled with simple tap water, and when the button is pressed, an electrolitic ozone generating cell creates dissolved ozone as the water sprays out the nozzle. Hold the nozzle about 6 inches from the surface of the hand you are disinfecting, and press the button, allowing both sides if your hand to get completely wet from the spray. Switch hands and spray down your other hand in the same way. Then, rub hands together and allow to air dry. Because ozone (O3) converts quickly back to oxygen (O2), there is no chemical residue left on your hands. There also is no sticky feel left on your hands like that left when you use aloe-based hand sanitizer. In fact, your hands will feel clean and soft and smell fresh.
