Ozone generators for water & air disinfection
Everyone deserves clean air and water
Dispura Ozone supplies Ozone generators for commercial, industrial, and residential applications.
Our range includes Ozone machines for water and air disinfection.
Ozone has a smell similar to a sea breeze or the smell of the air after a thunderstorm.
It leaves no residue or aftertaste and is environmentally safe.
What is Ozone?
Types of Ozone Generators
Ozone (O3) is a form of Oxygen that contains 3 atoms instead of two, in chemical terms it is a triatomic allotrope of Oxygen. It has a high oxidising potential which allows Ozone to remove harmful pathogens and odours, quickly and efficiently.
Ozone generators are flexible and varied for different requirements. Dispura Ozone supplies the following types:
Water treatment Ozone generators with air or Oxygen feed
Portable Ozone generators for air disinfection
Mobile Ozone machines with wheels – for in-plant cleaning
Units that can be free standing, wall or frame mounted
How is Ozone generated?
Advantages of Ozone
The most common method of generating Ozone is the Corona method. Air or Oxygen is drawn into the tune. High voltage is applied, which causes some of the Oxygen molecules to split and then attach itself to other Oxygen molecules to form Ozone (O3).
Rapid oxidation of bacteria, viruses & organics
A more powerful disinfectant than conventional chemicals
Cost effective – once off purchase – no storage required
Low power consumption

Ozone is extremely flexible and can be used for a wide variety of applications either for air or water. Some of the uses for Ozone are:
- Water treatment – bottled water/post filtration disinfection.
- Wastewater treatment – disinfection/sludge aeration/Reduction of COD, phenols, hydrocarbons, cyanide.
- Food processing – flume baths/storage/CIP/ general plant cleaning.
- Agriculture – water disinfection/air disinfection & odour removal/storage/CIP/general cleaning.
- Offices – air disinfection.
- Laundries – pathogen removal.
- Car washes – odour removal.
- Swimming pools/Spas.
- Home – Air & water disinfection

The Development of Ozone Generators
1785 – The Dutch chemist, Van Muram noticed a strange odor near his electrostatic machine.
1801 – Cruickshank’s observed the same odor during experiments into the electrolysis of water.
1840 – The substance that gave off this odor is officially discovered and named ozone (from the Greek word “ozein” to smell), by a German scientist called Christian Friedrich Schönbein..
1856 – Thomas Andrews showed that ozone was formed only by oxygen.
1857 – Werner Von Siemens designed an ozone generator, now known as the “Siemens Type” ozone generator.
1865 – Jacques-Louis Soret discovers the chemical formula for ozone. A prototype ozonometer was built by John Smyth.
1867 – Schönbein confirmed the ozone formula discovered by Jacques-Louis Soret.
1870 – C. Lender reports the first instance of ozone being used therapeutically, in Germany.
1873 – C. B. Fox related the use of ozone in the elimination of microorganisms.
1889 – Marius Paul Otto began studying ozone at La Sorbonne University, in Paris.
1893 – Ousbaden, in Holland, get the world’s first water treatment plant using ozone. Ozone is also used for the first time in Algae control.
1896 – Nikola Tesla patents his first ozone generator.
1900 – The Tesla Ozone company, “Tesla Ozone Co.”, is established and starts selling ozone generators to doctors for medical use.
1902 – Ozonated water was described as a successful treatment for several diseases.
1903 – Niagara Falls, in USA, get the first U.S. drinking water installation ozone treated.
1909 – Germany starts using ozone as a food preservative for meat cold storage.
1916 – 49 ozone installations are in use throughout Europe (26 of which in France).
1936 – Ozone is used to depurate shellfish, in France.
1939 – Ozone is used in storing fruits to prevent yeast and mold growth.
1940 – Ozone’s first use in the US to purify the swimming pool at US Naval Academy.
1942 – Ozone is used for the storage of eggs and cheese, in the US.
1948 – Dr. William Turska begins using an ozone generator of his own design, in Oregon.
1965 – Ozone was used for color control in surface water in Ireland and the United Kingdom (including Scotland), the first ozone report to be used to control the color of the substance. Swiss research leads to the use of ozone to oxidize micro-pollutants and pesticides.
1970 – For the first time in France, ozone is used for algae control.
1976 – the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) approves the use of ozone as an antimicrobial oxidant in the US.
2001 – Ozone is approved by the FDA as a secondary direct food additive, antimicrobial agent.
2019 – The COVID-19 pandemic (SAR-CoV-2) has spread worldwide.
