First of all, Ozone can also be disinfected:
- Ozone has an extremely strong oxidizing effect
- It can react with the double bonds of lipids in bacterial cell walls
- Alters cell permeability and causes death with high efficiency
The principle of ordinary UV disinfection lamps is UV-C direct irradiation of bacteria and viruses caused by their death, belonging to the physical disinfection, and UV-C wavelength is very short, so the penetrating ability is relatively weak, encountering complex space, it is easy to disinfection dead ends, so some UV line disinfection lamps will add ozone function because ozone is a gas, it is difficult to exist dead ends, just to make up for UV-C this shortcoming.
Then since ozone can make up for the disinfection of ordinary UV disinfection lamp dead ends, the cost of ozone generation is not high, why not all UV disinfection lamps with ozone function?
Because although ozone can sterilize, at the same time will also stimulate the human respiratory tract, may cause sore throat, chest tightness, and cough, bronchitis, and emphysema, etc.
Therefore, the use of ozone disinfection must have a condition that the space is well ventilated so that the ozone can be dispersed.
The use of UV disinfection lamps with ozone is highly discouraged in poorly ventilated spaces.
