Ozone Therapy Equipment: Machines, Generators, and Accessories
The equipment you need depends on whether or not you are a medical practitioner. There are differences between the equipment used at home and in a clinic. In addition, there are different accessories based on the various needs.
For the best and most complete information, it is strongly recommended you download this guide.
This may seem intimidating to get set up. But it's actually quite easy.
However, all parties require the following essentials:
- Ozone therapy machine (called a medical ozone generator)
- Oxygen tank
- Oxygen tank regulator
- Accessories (ex. ozone water bubbler for making ozone water)
Medical Ozone Generators
Ozone generators are used for a variety of purposes. Some are made for air purification, others to make ozone water, but the ones we are interested in are built for medical purposes.
Medical grade (sometimes called laboratory grade or pure grade) generators will ALWAYS use 99% pure oxygen to make ozone.
Not all ozone generators using oxygen are good for ozone therapy. Some companies cut corners and sell inexpensive "medical" ozone devices but don't pass any testing. Medical ozone generators based are required to have these standards:
- 100% pure ozone gas output - There is no breakdown of materials from the oxidation of ozone gas. Cheap companies will cut this corner.
- Accurate dosages - Some machines we test become wildly inaccurate overtime and can produce concentrations up to double of what they should.
- Ease of Use - Medical ozone generators should be simple to operate. Simple and easy machines save time and frustration.
- Price/Value - There is one company in particular that is drastically overpriced. Make sure you are getting a good price for your machine ($650 - $1,050 for home users).
An oxygen tank is necessary to operate a medical ozone generator.
We recommend you buy an oxygen tank locally.
Most home users get the 540 industrial oxygen, which is rated for the same purity as medical oxygen but doesn’t require a prescription. This tank can be bought at a local "Airgas" or "Praxair".
A size 40 cubic foot oxygen tank is recommended. It sounds large but it's not. It's about 15 inches tall and weighs 13lbs.
Medical practitioners and some patients get the 870 medical oxygen tank. A prescription or medical license is required to get an 870 medical oxygen tank.
Google "Medical oxygen supply near me" to find a location that provides medical oxygen tanks.
A size 40 cubic foot oxygen tank is recommended for home users. Medical practitioners are recommended to get two E size tanks (in case one runs out).
Oxygen Tank Regulators
Depending on which tank you choose, industrial or medical, you will need to buy a matching regulator. There is the 870 regulator which fits to the 870 medical oxygen tank and the 540 regulator which fits to the 540 industrial tank. There are also international oxygen tanks for anyone outside North America. Just make sure you match the name of the regulator to the fitting on the oxygen tank. Click Here to read more.
