Ozone disinfection of buses and trains

The Airozon® series effectively fights viruses and bacteria and protects guests

Where many people meet and are transported in a very confined space, effective cleaning and surface disinfection plays a special role. Buses and trams in public transport have one thing in common: the seats, train compartments and cabins must be cleaned several times a day and disinfected using an effective method such as ozone disinfection, as a large number of health-endangering germs, bacteria and viruses accumulate on the most diverse surfaces.

Pathogens that cause illness are present everywhere and travel right next to you

Bus stop rails, seats and windows are touched day after day by a multitude of different people who have sometimes blown their congested noses beforehand – or neglected to wash their hands after going to the toilet. Even people infected with viruses (Norovirus, Influenza Virus, SARS Virus or Coronavirus Covid-19) can spread infectious pathogens in their environment by simply touching things or by emitting the smallest virus-containing droplets. We all know the consequences! The best-known epidemic, the flu epidemic, causes ten to twenty percent of the population to fall ill during the flu season every year. But even well-known pandemics such as the SARS pandemic or the H5N1 avian flu were transmitted by droplets and smear infections. This is aggravated by the sometimes quite high resistance of micro-organisms that are harmful to health. Numerous studies have shown that noroviruses, for example, remain on surfaces for several days and coronaviruses for up to 72 hours and remain infectious.

A solution from Trotec: Disinfecting surfaces with ozone

With the powerful ozone generators Airozon® 10000 and Airozon® Supercracker, Trotec offers a wide variety of companies in the passenger transport sector a solution that is both effective and saves time and money in order to meet the ever-increasing challenges of effective surface disinfection.

The Airozon® ozone generators can be used flexibly thanks to their compact dimensions. With an ozone output of 10,000 milligrams/hour for the Airozon® 10000 and 10,000 milligrams/hour for the Airozon® Supercracker, otherwise time-consuming disinfection work can be carried out in a short time. Without the use of personnel or chemicals.

The mobile ozone generators of the Airozon® series generate a highly effective ozone concentration to decontaminate objects and surfaces even under complex spatial conditions. In addition, unpleasant odours in passenger areas, corridors and toilets are effectively eliminated.

The Airozon® ozone generators eliminate bacteria and viruses – without the use of chemicals:

Airozon® ozone generators are effective against:

  • Unpleasant odours in the room air, in seat fabrics, upholstery or curtains
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Spores

Airozon® 10000 and Airozon® Supercracker: Mobile disinfection professionals

In comparison to labour and personnel-intensive spray and wipe disinfection, ozone treatment offers a number of advantages. By using a mobile Airozon® 10000 or Airozon® Supercracker, the disinfection times of buses, train compartments, cabins or comparable intensively frequented areas can be considerably reduced compared to a mechanical cleaning process, so that several disinfection intervals can be carried out in the same time. Even hard-to-reach areas, which are often neglected in wipe disinfection, are treated by an Airozon® ozone generator with consistently high thoroughness.

All advantages of the Airozon®-Ozonisation at a glance:

  • Does not imply personnel during disinfection (e.g. overnight)
  • Also suitable for unplanned rapid deployment
  • Also works in places that are difficult to access and often cannot be reached with mechanical cleaning methods
  • Residue-free disinfection without chemicals

Interesting facts about ozone disinfection with an airozone ozone generator

Ozone is the second most powerful disinfectant in the world and has the ability to eliminate bacteria, viruses, gases and toxins. The mobile Airozon® ozone generators generate highly effective ozone concentration from the oxygen contained in the room air. The ozone treatment is carried out in a closed room, without people being present and the duration of treatment depends on various factors such as room size, temperature or degree of contamination. The ozone generated by the Airozon® destroys disease-causing viruses, bacteria and germs by diffusing through the protein envelope into the nucleic acid nucleus where it destroys the viral DNA. The ozone produced decomposes back into oxygen after treatment. For accelerated ozone decomposition after room treatment, the Airozon® Supercracker has a special oxygen regeneration mode. In this way, the required ozone concentration is built up and broken down equally quickly to further reduce the treatment time.
