Stabilized Aqueous Ozone
Turning ordinary tap water into Stabilized Aqueous Ozone, nature’s most powerful cleaner. The Stabilized Aqueous Ozone (SAO) is a highly effective cleaning agent that breaks down dirt, grease and other contaminants, safely replacing traditional chemical cleaners, deodorizers and sanitizers. Ordinary aqueous ozone is produced by using electricity to add an extra oxygen molecule to O2, creating O3. This O3 is then infused into cold tap water to create safe aqueous ozone able to clean and sanitize for up to 4 hours.
Benefits of using SAO
- Eliminates germs, odors, stains, mold, and mildew
- Quickly kills viruses and bacteria including E.coli, Salmonella, MRSA and more. *
- Safe and effective with no toxins, carcinogens, or chemical residue.
- Converts safely back to tap water and oxygen.
*Kills 99.999% of Escherichia Coli and Staphylococcus Aureus within a 60-second contact time.
How Stabilized Aqueous Ozone is created
- Cold tap water enters the Stabilization moduleThe stabilization module mixes with the cold tap water stream, expanding the useful time up to 24 hours*
- The treated water leaves the stabilization module
- Water passes through the connector, which prevents back flow with air lock, then enters the capacity unit
- Oxygen enters the dispenser through the replaceable filter cartridge
- 4,500 volts of electricity transform O2 to O3Ozone gas that is not saturated in the water is separated and safely dispensed as oxygen
- SAO leaves the dispenser to fill mop buckets, trigger sprayers, or auto scrubbers.
* Results may vary based on water quality at locations
Why the Cartridge is critical
The cartridge adjusts the minerals in the water first, stabilizing the tap water so that regardless of where in the world your tap water originates from, it is consistent and maximized for cleaning and sanitizing performance.
Without the cartridge, regular aqueous ozone only delivers 15 minutes of sanitizing. After passing through the SAO-4 cartridge, stabilized aqueous ozone remains potent for up to 4 hours of sanitizing time and 3 days of cleaning time. Using the SOA-24 cartridge, SAO will last up to 24 hours as a sanitizer and 6 days as a cleaner.
How it works
- Inside the lotus® unit, oxygen from the air is safely turned into ozone then infused into ordinary tap water.
- The ozone is attracted to germs, stains and bacteria.
- Harmless to people, the ozone quickly attacks and eliminates contaminants it comes in contact with.
- Only pure oxygen and water remain after the ozone cleans and sanitizes.
SAO is a patented, EPA regulated, technology from Tersano Inc. that has been around for more than 15-years. Along with the EPA, it’s regulated by the FDA, UDSA, Green Seal Certificate and other regulatory bodies. The latest SAO and Aqueous Ozone Pathogen Summaries sponsored by Tersano include independent laboratory testing results.
