Is Ozone Eco Friendly?

Yes! Ozone treatment is all-natural, and very eco friendly. Ozone is produced regularly by nature itself. Through the sun’s ultraviolet rays, lightning strikes and even from water cascading off a water fall, nature uses ozone to purify the air we breathe.
Unlike conventional air freshening techniques such as aerosol air fresheners, or environmentally harmful cleaning chemicals that may cause health risks, properly applied ozone poses no health issue at all. Since ozone is regularly produced in nature for the purpose of purifying air, it in no way hurts the environment.
Additionally, ozone created by our UV generators do not create any harmful bi-products or chemicals that pollute the air we breathe or harm the Earth itself. As part of its air purifying process, ozone safely converts into into oxygen, the very gas we need to survive.

What Can Ozone Fix?

Ozone Shock Treatment is ideal for removing a variety of household and industrial smells by destroying these odours at the molecular level. Ozone doesn’t cover up smells, it completely removes them. For some specific examples of odour elimination, please visit our home odours, vehicle odours and business odourspages.
Ozone has the ability to kill most known bacteria, viruses, such as samonella, HIV, influenza, polio, and other common organisms that are found in the food and beverage industries. A more complete list is displayed below:

Founded in Cape Town, January 2002, Wassertec has become the leader in ozone and ozone generation in Southern Africa.
From day one, our vision has been to design and manufacture the highest quality ozone generation systems primarily for the wine and bottled water industries. We believe that by taking care of the quality, the rest will take care of itself.
By collaborating with highly competent electrical engineers and industrial software developers, we have, over the years, created what we believe to be the best ozone systems currently available in their class.
From small beginnings we have grown the company and product line to become the leading manufacturer of ozone equipment in South Africa. Our specialised Bright Blue systems set the standard for ozone in the bottling industry.

Ozone Generation Specialists

With installations in nine African countries and clients such as Coca Cola, SAB and Distell, Wassertec are perfectly positioned to become your partners in ozone.
We not only design and manufacture our Ozone generation systems to the highest quality and safety standards, but we also stock all components at our Cape Town offices – ensuring rapid replacement of spares and minimal downtime.
If you are looking for high quality Ozone Generators, with backup and service to match, you’re in the right place. Welcome to Wassertec.
