The OZONATOR is the complete solution to your bio-hazardous waste needs. With zero emissions, ease of operation, quick cycle time and low operating costs the OZONATOR is not only a better solution but also a more cost-effective solution.
The functional part of this system is a combined process that loads unsegregated, bio-hazardous waste directly into the OZONATOR. All waste is collected by way of a plastic janitorial waste bin on caster wheels taken directly to the OZONATOR for processing.
The OZONATOR can be operated by almost any adult without the need for specialized training. It is an intelligent system of automated, computer logic and controls that is designed for maximum operator safety and convenience. A touch sensitive computer screen indicates that the machine is on stand-by or ready mode. Two touch sensitive computer screen icons function as button switches to “START” and “RUN”. At the start up stage, the powerful on-board computer takes over and tests the system integrity by conducting a series of tests to make certain that the unit is sealed and ready to receive the next load of waste. Information on the load of waste to be treated is then recorded. Information such as the operator, time of day, weight of the load, etc. are all recorded in the on-board computer for later or remote retrieval.
After the computer has tested the entire system and any residual ozone contained within the receiving hopper has been destroyed, a lid on the top of the unit opens up to receive another load of waste. An integrated lift system lifts and holds the waste bin while the contents are tipped into the receiving hopper. While the lift mechanism is returning the waste bin to the floor position the computer starts the shredder motors and begins to fill the treatment chamber with a highly concentrated ozone fog. Once the lid on the receiving hopper has closed and the system is completely sealed, an internal control gate opens delivering the waste to the shredder.
As the OZONATOR shreds the waste, a sizing screen located under the shredding mechanism ensures that all pieces of waste are reduced to a size to ensure optimal exposure. During the entire process, the waste is exposed to a thick and highly concentrated fog of ozone gas.
After all of the waste material has been processed, the volume has been reduced by up to 90%. At this stage of the process, the material is now resting in a floor level chamber where it is automatically transferred into the sealed transport container.
At this stage the ambient ozone gas within the sealed transport container is still actively disinfecting the shredded waste. Even though at this point all biological hazards have been sterilized, this ongoing treatment speeds up the destruction of the molecular structure of any plastic or latex products in the waste.
Once the transportation container is filled at or near capacity, the transport container is detached and hauled directly to the sanitary landfill where it is emptied, returned and re-attached directly to the OZONATOR processing unit.
When was the last time that a piece of technology came along that was not only cleaner, faster, easier, safer but also more cost effective? The OZONATOR achieves all this in the space of your current waste compactor. Using proven technology and components, the OZONATOR makes quick work of the bio-hazardous waste in your facility.
With our OZONATOR technology, you gain the peace of mind in knowing that your bio-hazardous waste is not being incinerated and thus contributing to the toxic emissions into our environment. Beyond your “peace of mind” is the fact that you have reduced your exposure to litigation and liabilities as a result of the mishandling and transportation your biomedical waste.
The OZONATOR is a sustainable technology. By using this technology, we no longer need to put the environment of our future generations at risk. Using only oxygen extracted from ambient air, a small amount of water, compressed air a a very small amount of electricity (approximately 12 kWh per cycle) results in a very small environmental footprint for our unique technology.
The OZONATOR provides cost certainty; there is no more guessing on what your waste management costs will be. For just pennies per pound, you can treat your own waste on-site. And, more importantly, because you are not billed by weight, there is no more deciding on what should or should not be included in your bio-hazardous waste management program.
The OZONATOR can not only handle your bio-hazardous waste but also nearly all your waste which cannot be recycled; this means less labor intensive (and expensive) waste segregation.
Because you can treat your waste immediately on site, there is no need for expensive refrigerated storage facilities. Conventional systems require special packaging prior to transportation. The OZONATOR system eliminates the need for expensive boxes, liners, containers, etc. With its quick cycle time and up to 400kg per cycle capacity, the OZONATOR can handle your waste stream in a more efficient and timely manner. The OZONATOR does not have a minimum load capacity required to run a cycle.
Ease of Operation
Your facility will no longer require trained specialists to run your sterilization equipment. The OZONATOR is simple to operate and all staff can be trained to operate the unit in just minutes. An integrated security system ensures that only authorized staff can operate the unit and then the unit records information on the operator, time of day, load weight etc. into the onboard computer for later or remote retrieval.
No longer will your staff be exposed to dangerous pathogens or sharps during waste segregation or the treatment process. Additionally, the OZONATOR continuously monitors operating environment around the unit to ensure a safe operating atmosphere.
