Ozone is a gas. And it’s made of just one thing — oxygen.

Image from www.mfe.govt.nz/issues/ air/breathe/ozone.html"Ozone can be visualized as a regular O2 molecule with a very nervous, active, reactive, excitable, energetic, and lively O1 atom as a side kick. This monatomic O1 atom does not like to be alone, and near the earth's surface, it refuses to stay with the stable O2 double bond. It is active and reactive, with energy needing to be channeled in some useful direction. It will combine with virtually anything on contact, or at least will try. This active O1 will not stabilize until it can break away from the O2 and form a stable molecule with something else, virtually any other molecule that is available. If no other molecule is available, it will eventually unite with another O1 atom in the same situation, and restabilize as O2."
The preceding was adapted from an EPA paper on ozone in drinking water.

Ozone doesn’t arrive at your facility in a tanker truck or in 55 gallon drums – ozone is generated onsite, at your facility, using ambient air and a small amount of electricity. WhiteWater Systems take in ambient air from your facility, filter the air so that only pure oxygen gas (in the form of O2 molecules) remains, and then excite the oxygen gas by passing it through a high voltage field. This high voltage field, which essentially simulates lightning, excites the oxygen gas, causing some of the O2 molecules in the gas to break apart to become individual oxygen atoms (O1). These individual O1 atoms then bond with existing O2 molecules to create O3 – ozone. The resulting ozone gas is then injected into a low-pressure stream of cold water, and this ozone-infused water is then distributed throughout your processing facility via Schedule 80 PVC or stainless steel piping.
