HGI Industries, the manufacturer of Odorox® products, recently completed a series of toxicology and physical chemistry tests on its Odorox® Boss™ hydroxyl generator…….One of the tests involved the comparison of the Odorox® Boss™ to the Titan 4000 machine produced by International Ozone Technologies Group, Inc.
Mark Mino, President of HGI, commented on these test results.
“The Odorox® hydroxyl generating technology is unique because of its ability to eliminate odors and pathogens not only in the air that is drawn through the irradiation chamber of the machine, but also the odors and pathogens on surfaces and absorbed by contents within a room or structure. The Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (LRRI), with the assistance of Dr. David Crosley, has recently completed a series of sophisticated independent physical chemistry tests using the Odorox® equipment. One of their findings was that the Odorox® machine produced a concentration of hydroxyls outside the chamber of the machine equal to approximately 2,000,000 molecules per cubic centimeter, which is in the range of concentrations found outdoors on a sunny day.
LRRI also tested the Titan machine that is marketed by International Ozone as a “hydroxyl generator”. After extensive testing, LRRI detected no measurement of hydroxyls at all, and concluded that if the Titan was producing any hydroxyls, they were too few to be measured. This research confirms the observations of contractors in the field who are unable to remove odors from surfaces and contents with this product. It is very important for the restoration industry and insurance professionals to understand the significant differences in these technologies.”
