Last week we dedicated an article to give you some tips and options for elimination of marijuana odors and smoke . Today we want to offer you a post about ozone generators whose functions go much further than simply eliminating odor, since it is designed to combat bacteria, viruses, microorganisms, fungi and mites . For this reason, we wanted to dedicate an article just for this product that has a lot to say and is used for various purposes. Surely you have seen this type of product that is used at home and has many health benefits, especially for those of us who live in cities with polluted air full of unhealthy particles, as well as for those who live with pets and want to neutralize odors. while they oxidize bacteria and indoor air pollutants. Ozone generators p urify and clean the atmosphere and the environment through its oxidizing action, and many growers use it because it is a very effective way to eliminate strong odor of a plant such as cannabis and because it is one of the most natural, healthy and clean methods that do not harm the plant and respect it.
Basic functions performed by the Ozone Generator
There are 3 basic functions that the Ozone generator performs:
- Microbicidal or antibacterial function
- Deodorant or anti-odor function
- Oxygenating function
Microbicide or ANTIBACTERIAL function
It is one of the most valuable functions of ozone generators. It is very effective for the elimination of all kinds of bacteria, fungi, spores, mites , which after all are not good for the marijuana plant. In addition, it protects it very well against these adversities that later it would be annoying to alleviate and cure with various treatments and products if our cannabis plant were to become infected. With this, we can say that prevention is better than cure.
Deodorant or Anti-odor function
One of the most valued properties for this product is that of eliminating odors with high efficiency, directly attacking the cause that causes the bad smell. In this way, it does not camouflage the odor with another odor or anything similar, but rather completely eliminates the polluting particles that produce it . It will be used for our micro-cultivation of marijuana, in an interior room, in a closet and also for the smell of smoke in our home, in the living room, after a party, etc. It is also used on farms or for the scent of pets.
In closed spaces, the environment tends to become polluted in a faster and more concentrated way. The ozone generator contributes to the greater efficiency of the cells for their functions of absorb, transport and use oxygen.
How does an Ozone Generator work?
The compressor takes air from the environment by selecting the oxygen molecules and inserts them inside the ozone generating lamp. Oxygen (O2) is made up of two oxygen atoms. The generator, through electric discharges, separates the bond between molecules so that some remain free and seek to join another couple to have 3 oxygen atoms and form ozone ( O3). Ozone disinfects in the following way: adheres to bacteria and oxidizes them from the cell wall to its nucleus. In this way, it destroys them without leaving any toxic residue. It works in cycles so that there is no ozone overload in the environment. It's lightweight, easy to install, and it's quiet. We can find it in different formats to disinfect and eliminate odors from large and small spaces. We have very small ozone generators for spaces such as the bathroom or to connect in the car, even generators designed for industrial size, for large warehouses and spaces.
Types of generators for our marijuana cultivation:
There are three main types of Ozone Generators.
Wall-mounted ozone generators:
They are generally installed outside the marijuana cultivation, since ozone cannot touch our plants directly. A large amount can be harmful to plants and even to us. There are different models that can also go inside our house, they would be the domestic ozonators that we can place in the room where we have the odors and avoid discomfort to neighbors and other roommates.
Ozone generators for ducts:
Designed to be installed in the extraction tubes towards the outside and generate an abundance of ozone. If our extraction tube does not have much diameter and is for a small space, we can also use injection ozonators
Ozone generators for water
Prepared for the water tanks for our irrigation, it will generate ozone and transport it to the water through bubbles with the injection system. It allows us to eliminate bacteria, viruses and everything without chemical products , simply with ozone molecules that purify our water. Ideal for hydroponic and aeroponic marijuana crops.
Actually, within these 3 main types of ozone generators that you can choose for your marijuana cultivation, there is a wide range with specific characteristics and that we advise you to consult with your grow shop of confidence so that you can study the best format and size option for your case.
