Guide to vehicle sanitation

Guide to sanitizing vehicles with the Ozone-O3 multi-sanitizing station.

With the Covid-19 virus pandemic, sanitation and disinfection procedures have become essential to safeguard the health of people in public environments.


The new Ozone O3 multi-sanitizing station has recently been added to our product range, a device designed for the sanitization of transport vehicles such as trucks, buses and building spaces from 150 to 300 m2 equipped with a ozone generator and a nebulization system.

In this article, a guide to sanitizing vehicles with our sanitizing station will be illustrated step by step, with useful tips and warnings for a correct, professional and safe sanitation.

1) Preparation for sanitation

Remove any objects inside the vehicle and close all windows and doors. Place the station on the floor as close as possible to the air intake of the ventilation system.

Unscrew the cap located on the top of the Ozone-O3 and enter the amount of sanitizer as indicated in the table in the “usage and maintenance” manual supplied with the machine.

Connect the station to a power supply, if you need to sanitize a room, you can use the adapter for 220 V wall sockets.

Start the vehicle with the handbrake engaged and set the ventilation system to “air intake from outside”, with minimum temperature (16 °C), fan at minimum speed, uniform air distribution on all air vents and air conditioning switched on.

2) Setting the sanitation program

Before proceeding with sanitization it is important to remove people and animals from the area intended for sanitation, because ozone is harmful.


Minimum inhalation: Respiratory problems, itchy eyes;

Prolonged inhalation: Sense of suffocation, possible pulmonary edema, nausea, vomiting and loss of consciousness and a state of coma in humans after one hour of continuous exposure.


It is important to inform the staff present and close any access points to the area.

Once the area has been made safe, it is possible to set the most suitable program for the area to be sanitized (cars, trucks, buses, 150 or 300 m3 rooms) via Air-O3, the Android smartphone application managed with the phone’s Bluetooth system.

Sanitation with the Ozone-O3 station is divided into two phases: ozonation and nebulization. In both phases it is possible to set the processing times, the cycle start time or choose whether to process only the ozone cycle or the nebulization cycle.

If most of the lights are on, the batteries have a good state of charge;

Batteria scarica

If more than half of the lights are off, then you should recharge them as soon as possible.

If they are discharged, they must be recharged using a suitable battery charger by connecting it to the appropriate socket supplied with the device. For a longer lifespan of the batteries it is necessary to avoid partial charging and also to completely discharge the batteries.
