Airborne Pathogens & Odors

Airlines spend vast amounts of money on chemicals to disinfect aircraft. The sterilizing power of ozone is the strongest known element to be used against bacteria, microorganisms, fungus and certain insect larvae and can, therefore, be used to eliminate or reduce the use of hazardous chemicals. The most appropriate environment for the incubation of any kind of bacteria are those places where little ventilation exists, where the temperature is warm and a certain degree of humidity prevails.

In aircraft, the combination of groups of people, the heating system, and perspiration on bodies and in the atmosphere pave the way for the best conditions for bacteria and microorganisms to multiply. The application of ozone in aircraft deodorizes the environment and regenerates oxygen resulting in a completely clean environment free from bacteria, microorganisms, and odors.

Water disinfection Systems

Ozone Sanitation Systems has developed an efficient method to quickly and effectively clean aircraft potable water tanks, distribution systems, and appliances.

Current disinfection systems use harmful chemicals like Purogene and Chlorine to disinfect the aircraft water system. The process requires the water tanks to be soaked with the chemicals, followed by a rinse cycle to remove chemical traces from the potable water system. The process is time-consuming and costly with uncertain effectiveness, it also causes wastage of potable water. Ozone Guys Potable Water Disinfection System uses an EPA-approved Ozone based technology to disinfect the aircraft water system.

System Operation (Water Disinfection)

Potable water is pumped from aircraft tank into the Potable System and Ozone is mixed with potable water. This “Ozonated” potable water is pumped back into the aircraft tank. The water is re-circulated to ensure appropriate Ozone concentration levels. Ozone (O3) molecules react with and destroy contaminants.

Benefits Of Ozone

Unlike UV light, Ozone quickly Kills bacteria, viruses and protozoa in the water tank, water lines and points of use onboard the aircraft. Ozone is more effective and efficient than chlorinated cleaners, (3000 times faster than chlorine). It removes and inhibits biofilm growth since ozone is a gas, it does not require wetted contact to disinfect. The biggest advantage is that there are no residual disinfectant or special disposal requirements when using Ozone to disinfect the potable water system. Field test results have established significant cost savings, clean-time reductions & disinfection improvements over traditional disinfection methods. The system provides immediate benefits to the water and waste system component reliability by improving the performance of the faucets, water heaters, coffee makers, & toilets.
