Aquentium, Inc. recently announced the company’s new mobile non-chemical sanitation system, The Aquentium MOS-1, designed to eliminate or reduce bacteria and viruses 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.”

Ozone can be an integral part of the food, beverage, medical, and hospitality industries; Water containing low concentrations of ozone gas can both remove and kill bacteria or other organic matter that may be present. Ozone offers several advantages in sanitization tasks such as cleaning floors, washing dinnerware, or rinsing of food products susceptible to food borne illnesses, such as meat, poultry, seafood, fruits or vegetables.

Chlorine, ozone’s traditional alternative, has been the sanitizer of choice in the food processing industry. However, experts share a growing concern about its dangerous byproducts, often known carcinogens. Although organic and chemical matter affects the oxidation reduction potential (ORP) of ozone, its ORP is not as sensitive to changes in pH as that of chlorine. Additionally, while chlorinated wash systems require transport and storage of potentially hazardous toxic chemicals, ozone can be produced on sight and does not require storage.

Those companies or individuals interested in distributing the Aquentium line of ozone equipment should contact Mark Taggatz, President & CEO.
