DIY OZONE Generator
Posted 01 December 2005 - 01:34 PM
I found a large mouth jar, and put one lead on the inside (aluminum foil lined) and one outside (also lined with foil). I made sure the wires or the foil never touched. I hooked the other wire to the foil outside. I found a clear plastic container I used as a guard/ insulator around the jar. when I plugged the apparatus in, there was a buzzing and a faint blue glow. Also there was some mini arcing (normalinside the jar. I could smell the Ozone immediately. There is some heat generated, but not enough to worry about IMHO.
Within 20 minures the interior of the vehicle was done well enough for me, but in the future I will put the process on a timer.
Besides warning about proper insulation, the only other warning is for you NOT to breath the Ozone more than you absolutley have to. Before you enter the vehcle, open all doors and let the residual Ozone dissipate. Ozone is not good to breath, and can be injurious to you if breathed too long or in too heavy concentrations. Oh, my point in building this unit , is that it cost me less than $45.00, as opposed to well over $200.00 for most manufactured units.

I can't stop thinking of having a backdraft of the entire auto interior when a car door is opened! Pics please
I can't stop thinking of Doc from Back to the Future!

Is ozone harmful to leather or any other interior materials?
Yes, why do you think tire rubber is full of anti-ozonant chemicals?
Not a bad idea to run the car's fan system on high to evenly distribute the ozone throughout the car. And no need to run the ozone machine for that long either, or if the inside of the car is damp.
Now what would be interesting is to mount this home made ozone machines electrostat into the bucket of a shopvac so as to have an ozone blower machine.

I deal with it in my profession and we go to great lengths to avoid coming into "contact" with it.
Check out this thread from April of 2007.
Also I have recently located new (to me) product to remove odors. We have used it around the house and car lately and the stuff is amazing. It pretty much works as advertised. It is one of those TV ad products that we ran into through a relative. But holy crap does it work. And. Yes. When it kills a smell it stays gone. Blows anything else I have tried away. Supposed to be perfectly safe.
I apologize ahead of time for the sh!tty and annioying website.
Odor Eliminator; Urine & Pet Odor Remover
Again this stuff is far better than Febreeze, baking soda, local janitorial industrial deodorant, and anything that my wife and I have yet tried. Instant too.
It doesn't take much, but I still find it a bit pricey. I just buy the gallon and get sprayers for it.
Hey if anyone else uses this please post, so I don't sound like a loon. I know the website is awful!! But as far my experiences go it is a best in class product.

It is a good cleaner, but also can cause damage. Be sparing.
