CEN at MJBizCon: Contained Ozone Safely Kills Cannabis Contaminants

Cerrozone's machine ensures no ozone can escape.

The Cannabis Equipment News team recently traveled to MJBizCon, held in Las Vegas from November 28 through December 1. At the show, we interviewed equipment manufacturers, cultivators, operators and new product developers to learn more about what they bring to the cannabis industry.

Cerrozone manufactures air purification devices that generate ozone, which the company said effectively eliminates viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew and a lot of other volatile organic compounds like ammonia and formaldehyde. But the company doesn't add ozone to the air in the room. It's strictly inside the machine.

Lee Still, national sales director at Cerrozone, said the ozone is converted back into O2 before it leaves the machine. He said Cerrozone's machine is a net-negative ozone device, which the company focused on to ensure it won't contribute any ozone to the ambient air we breath.

If any ozone does escape the machine, it's equipped with a sensor that will automatically shut off the device and trigger a service call.

Cerrozone is preparing to add another device to its lineup: the 420 Mold Killer, which is launching in June. It will be a 1,000 CFM, wall-mounted unit for grow houses. Still said the new machine will provide multiple air changes per hour in the grow space, so problems like aspergillus can be eliminated within a few cycles.

The next MJBizCon will be held from December 3, 2024, through December 6, 2024, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
