Offending Odors, Bacteria, Fungi, and Viruses Simply Cannot Survive When Exposed to Glacier Ozone Air Purifying Technology

Ozone cleans the air by destroying the Volatile Organic Compound’s (VOC’s) in the air that cause bad odors. Glacier Ozone Generators create clean ozone by producing an ultraviolet (UV) wavelength that converts basic oxygen into ozone.


The basic oxygen essential to life that we breathe is two atoms of oxygen. The Glacier unit blows oxygen over a UV lamp. This splits the oxygen molecule and a third oxygen atom is added.

This third atom seeks out organic molecules of other substances and detaches from the ozone molecule and re-attaches to Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) in the air that cause odor.  Ordinarily, this clean ozone has a life span of approximately 20-minutes before it reverts back into oxygen, unless it finds a carbon molecule to destroy.

Once attached, the third atom inactivates the contaminates by rupturing the organisms’ cell wall.  The third atom is then free to attach to another oxygen molecule. At this point the ozone is dissipated and all that remains is pure oxygen.

The Glacier Ozone System speeds up the cleansing process of foul-smelling infested areas by saturating the contaminated area with a huge volume of clean ozone molecules. The molecules as denoted in Grolier’s Book of Popular Science are a form of Super Charged Oxygen.
