Other Systems Use Ozone, Why Choose Fresh Gear?
Ozone is a very powerful germ killer. However, it kills them on contact. Most competing ozone sanitizing machines simply pump ozone into a box and hope that the ozone floats into the right places to come into contact with germs.
The Fresh Gear patented process, utilizes perforated tubes to direct high levels of ozone into the areas that make contact with the skin, thoroughly sanitizing the gear and reducing the risk of infection.
Other features that differentiate us from our competitors:
Using Fresh Gear services regularly helps: (1) eliminate odor-causing bacteria (2) reduce the risk of infection and (3) prolong the life of your sports gear. It's one of the best decisions an athlete can make.
What is Ozone?
Ozone (O3) can be found as a naturally ocurring gas in the upper atmosphere. It is often used as a safe (FDA approved) but very powerful disinfectant (3,000 times faster than bleach). It:
How does ozone destroy bacteria?
In the computer models shown above, we see how Ozone works. This is a close-up of a bacteria cell (1). Ozone, shown in green, comes into contact with the bacteria (2). Ozone penetrates the bacteria cell (3), forming a hole in the bacterial wall (4). Multiple molecules of Ozone create a series of holes in the bacteria (5). This leads to cell lysing and destruction of the bacteria cell (6). Unlike other treatments, ozonation does not allow the bacteria to mutate.
