Information and Operation Instructions for Ozone Air Sterilizer
Our Unit is intended for use in Sterilization of air and surfaces.
Unit should be run in a room with good ventilation.
Running the Unit
We suggest to only run the unit continuously if in a well ventilated room larger than 1000 sq feet or utilize the following chart for usage:
Room Size Time to Run Unit Effective
300 sq feet 10 minutes 4-8 hours dependent on traffic
500 sq feet 15 minutes 4-8 hours dependent on traffic
1000 sq feet 30 minutes 4-8 hours dependent on traffic
If unit is run continuously ensure there is enough air flow to ensure ozone is emitted safely. Running a unit overnight in an unoccupied building or room can eliminate up to 90% of all germs and bacteria in the a space of 1000 to 1500 sq feet for up to 24 hrs dependent on traffic flow.
It is still important to ensure you are cleaning surfaces and that they are free and clear of dust even though the Air Sterilizer will eliminate contagions.
The units do not need to be run continuously, however if you wish to you can, they utilize minimal electricity but they do have ozone output and that is the smell you are experiencing. It is good to leave them running overnight if that is more practical, as they will eliminate all germs for 12 to 24 hours depending on how high traffic flow your rooms are.
Additionally to this with a 3500mg/hr Unit which you have, proper usage is as follows.
One unit will sanitize as follows:
300 sq feet in 10 minutes
500 sq feet in 15 minutes
1000 sq feet in 30 minutes
Eliminates Air and Surface Bacteria/Germs For a period of 4 to 8 hours depending on traffic flow in the space.
You DO NOT need to leave the unit running continuously. It is highly effective.
It is important to ensure that you are placing the unit in an area with enough space and air flow to move the particles around.
Again the smell you are experiencing is the Ozone Sterilization killing particles in the air.
What is ozone?
Ozone is, in the most basic sense, a form of oxygen. Each molecule of ozone is made up of three oxygen atoms (O3); the oxygen we breathe, on the other hand, is made up of two atoms.
What does ozone smell like?
Have you ever heard the phrase “smells like rain?” Well, people who say they can smell a storm coming are correct. What they’re really smelling is ozone. In fact, the word ozone is derived from the Greek verb ozein, which means “smell.” This is particularly fitting given the strong aroma of this chemical compound.
Ozone has a distinctive smell that humans can detect even in small concentrations — as few as 10 parts per billion.
Here are some of the ways the smell of ozone is described:
Knowing what ozone smells like can help you detect whether there are high concentrations in the air.
