What Is Ozone?
Ozone is a natural molecule found in the atmosphere, thunderstorms, and even the human body. O3 stands for the chemical makeup: 3 oxygen molecules combined to form ozone.
You may have heard of the ozone layer, an atmospheric layer which protects the earth from UV radiation.
Ozone is also created during thunderstorms, giving us that fresh clean smell after. Ozone is naturally found in the human body. Although ozone is good and needed, there are large misconceptions about it.
Is Ozone Harmful to Humans?
Some individuals interpret ozone as a pollutant. Ozone gets a bad reputation because of smog. However, this would be referring to tropospheric ozone, not laboratory grade (made by our ozone generators) or stratospheric ozone.
Scientists needed an easy, inexpensive way to measure smog, so they picked ozone. Ozone is the measuring stick for the pollutants: hydrocarbons, peroxidized hydrocarbons, and nitrates.
Ozone is nature’s way to reduce smog and can be harmful in large doses, especially when combined with all the other elements of smog. Laboratory grade ozone, on the other hand, has a number of benefits.
What Is Ozone Used For?
Although ozone can be mislabeled as negative, it is useful and beneficial. Due to ozone’s ability to purify and oxidize harmful molecules, bacteria, and virus, it is implemented in medicine, athletics, municipalities, and purification.
Ozone is used for health benefits around the world and is recognized by multiple countries as having medicinal effects.
Athletes use ozone to enhance performance.
Municipalities use ozone to eradicate harmful bacteria and chemicals in water, producing a safe, drinkable water. Even the pools in the Sydney Olympics had been purified by ozone.
Hospitals, hotels, casinos, and car dealerships use ozone for air purification, sterilization, and odor elimination.
Are Your Devices Ozone Resistant?
This chart is recognized worldwide and is even recognized by C.E. standards (Similar to our FDA except in Europe and other countries).
So why is this important?
If an ozone device uses non-resistant materials, they could be emitting unwanted chemicals.
All of Simply O3's devices use materials that has no effect on these materials. They will last indefinitely.
What Method Of Discharge Is Used In Making The Ozone?
We use cold corona discharge single dialectic in our ozone generators.
Why did we choose cold corona discharge single dialectic?
Because it is safe and effective. Cold corona discharge allows more accuracy of the device while outputting concentrations we need.

How Is Ozone Measured?
- Parts Per Million (ppm) - This is the most common method. So if we were to have 1 ppm that would mean that for every million parts of gas, one of those would be ozone. (Note: ppb = parts per billion)
- Milligrams (mg/l) or Micrograms (ug/ml) of ozone per liter - Indicates milligrams/micrograms of ozone in one liter of total volume (gas or liquid). This is the measurement we use for our devices.
- Grams of ozone per hour (g/hr) - Ozone output for a generator. We can measure the concentration of ozone in g/m(cubed), then when we calculate for flow rate with a measurement such as LPM (liters per minute), we can determine how many grams of ozone are produced in one hour of time.
- Milligrams of ozone per hour (mg/hr) - Same as grams but a smaller measurement.
- Gamma - A gamma is another term for mg/l (milligram per liter). It is a measurement of the concentration of the ozone. Therefore, 1 gamma = 1 mg/l.
