bumping this up, because it seems to be a good idea, and i think i'm going to try it.

alien, the plans in the second link....is that how you made yours? and it acutally works? it seems so easy.

also, you say you use it in your work area when you make a print. have you noticed any negative effects of the ozone with the spores?

Ozone (O3) is actually not a good thing to use IMO. It DOES oxidize contaminates thereby killing them, BUT it also oxidizes wood, paint, plastic, even metals and many other building materials. When it oxidizes these things, it makes them MUCh weaker and over time, (a few months), the material becomes increasingly weak and needs constant repair. If O3 wasnt so "corrosive" to bulding materials, then people would be pumping ozone into the atmosphere to "cure" the depleting ozone layer. O3 is a very unstable molecule. Look it up!

actually, this is something i _know_ about. not just repeating what i have heard.

ozone is deadly, dangerous, and poisonous. i cant really use any other words to describe it. anyone who knows about chemistry knows that O3 has a free radical. its not real nice to have around anything. its unstable. its bad. at high concentrations or low.

just depends on the scale of the object of its affections. if you just start pumping ozone into a bag or something, its really nice. just store that bag for a while and the O3 will decompose into O2. nice O2 source.
a tiny amount will do a good job at killing airborne contaminates and if you can afford to replace the housing of where ever you keep the ozone, its a good tool to use.

just use it correctly. do a couple huffs of a low concentration or just sit in the room for a while if you dont believe me. and btw, the best source of info on safety of a product is usually not the company who makes one.
