North Palm Springs, CA, United States, 2009/05/27 - Aquentium, Inc. is pleased to announce today the opportunity of global distributor opportunities of the company's new mobile non-chemical sanitation system that eliminates or reduces bacteria and viruses. OTC: AQNM
The Aquentium MOS-1 is designed for use in hospitals, restaurants, hotels, schools and food and beverage processing plants.
“Our MOS-1 system utilizes ozone which replaces the need for chemicals and is the natural way to sanitize surfaces and food products. Ozone gas (O3) can be generated by passing high voltage electricity through oxygenated air, causing oxygen to break apart and recombine in the tri-atomic form,” stated Aquentium President Mark Taggatz.
“We expect that our cost -effective mobile sanitizing system will be of great benefit to the medical profession as well as the food, beverage and hospitality industries that are seeking a solution to eliminating or reducing bacteria and viruses without having to use chemicals and hot water,” added Taggatz.
Ozone has a variety of uses in the food, beverage, medical, and hospitality industries. Water containing low concentrations of ozone gas can be sprayed onto equipment, walls or floors to both remove and kill bacteria or other organic matter that may be present. Ozone can also be injected or dissolved in water to provide rinsing or washing of food products such as meat, poultry, seafood, fruits or vegetables.
As an oxidizer, it is 51 times more powerful than chlorine, the oxidizer most commonly used by most food processors, and 3,000 times faster at killing bacteria and other microbes. Ozone is effective as a disinfectant at relatively low concentrations and does not leave toxic by-products similar to those related to chlorination.
Ozone is FDA and USDA approved. Compared to chlorine, ozone offers several advantages for food and beverage processors or anyone who wants to sanitize materials or surfaces. Chlorine has traditionally been the sanitizer of choice in the food processing industry, but experts share a growing concern about the dangerous byproducts such as trihalomethanes or dioxins produced when chlori ne reacts with organic matter in the water. These substances are known carcinogens and are regulated in drinking water by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
While chlorinated wash systems require transport and storage of potentially hazardous toxic chemicals, ozone is unique in that it is generated onsite from oxygen and can be produced on demand with no storage required. When the generator is turned off, there are no dangerous substances on the premises. While the oxidation reduction potential (ORP) of ozone is affected by the amount of organic matter or chemicals in the water, its ORP is not as sensitive to changes in pH as that of chlorine.
Those companies or individuals interested in distributing the Aquentium line of ozone equipment should contact Mark Taggatz, President & CEO.
