Ozone Gas Detectors

Oxygen is in the air we breathe every day, at a rate of 21 percent oxygen approximately. It’s one of the most common molecules in nature on Earth. It’s stable in its diatomic form, known as O2. As oxygen moves to its triatomic form, meaning when it is using three oxygen atoms to form its gas, this is ozone.

Unlike oxygen, ozone is visible and usually has a light blue color at extremely high concentrations. That said, at lower levels, it is colorless. Ozone thankfully has a distinct odor usually noticeable at low levels and is typically associated with scents in commercial cleaning. At higher levels, the smell turns pungent.
