At CerroZone, we welcome the discussion about the safety of ozone. We understand the concerns some people and organizations have about ozone, due unfortunately to previous products that did not put safety first as we did when engineering CerroZone.
There is no question that ozone can be hazardous to humans. But it’s important to understand that CerroZone is completely different than any other product on the market, past or present. With CerroZone, no significant amount of ozone ever leaves the unit. All ozone is generated inside a hermetically sealed chamber, then converted back into oxygen before exiting the unit. We offer multiple assurances of our product’s safety, as outlined below.
- CerroZone mobile devices conform to the Intertek “Zero Ozone” standard, as well as the CARB (California Air Resources Board) standard.
- CerroZone mobile devices meet EPA, OSHA and other ozone emittance standards.
- In independent testing, the ozone level in the air exiting the CerroZone unit was less than the natural ozone level in the ambient air in the room.
- CerroZone units have been cycle fatigued for many months during internal and field trials.
- The CerroZone mobile unit will be certified by the FDA as a 510(k) Class II medical device.
- Every CerroZone unit contains a primary external ozone sensor in the exhaust stream that will shut down the unit if an excess amount of ozone is detected.
- Every CerroZone unit contains a secondary external ozone sensor in the exhaust stream – on a separate electrical circuit – that will shut down the unit if an excess amount of ozone is detected.
- Every CerroZone unit contains an internal ozone sensor that will shut down the unit if the ozone being generated is out of range – either too low or too high.
CerroZone units are backed by our parent company, Marmon Holdings, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway Company. Marmon invested heavily in the development of our technology and particularly in our safety protocols, features and extensive testing. Safety was never compromised during our nearly 2-year product development process, and CerroZone would not have been brought to market if its safety could not be proven.
