Criteria for a medical grade ozone generator

When it comes to ozone therapy, safety is the number one priority.

Medical grade ozone generators are made to be safe when used appropriately.

There are a few criteria that qualify a medical grade ozone generator.  And they are important because harm can be done if not followed strictly.


Ozone compatibility

Ozone compatibility speaks to the purity of the ozone gas.  Ozone is a strong oxidant, which means it easily breaks materials down, such as certain rubber, plastic, and metals.  

If the wrong components are used, it will break down the components and leach micro-contaminations into the gas, which are counterproductive for the body.


A medical ozone generator must operate off pure oxygen.  It is not a safe option to use room air or an oxygen concentrator.  At best, an oxygen concentrator will get 95% pure oxygen.  The additional nitrogen and argon will create impurities that are harmful to the body.

Using room air is going to produce a lot of harmful gas contaminants once it goes through the generator.  This is only good for air purification or making ozone water.


A medical ozone generator must produce accurate readings of ozone.

For example, we’ve tested machines that say they put out 40 gamma of ozone at a certain setting but were actually producing 120 gamma.  This concentration is way to high and will damage the cells. 

Therefore, a medical ozone generator must be accurate.  Every single ozone generator needs to be quality tested and calibrated for accuracy.

Issues with cheap ozone therapy generators

All the cheap ozone generators we have seen on the market do not meet the above criteria.  They are cheap because they cut corners in the materials used and the quality control procedures taken - producing inaccurate concentrations and impurities in the gas.

A cheap ozone generator is typically below $600. 

If they invested appropriately into the ozone technology, they would not be able to sell it for less than $600.

So they cut corners.

What to look for in an ozone therapy machine

Along with the above criteria, we recommend considering the following:

  • Lifetime warranty
  • 6 month money back guarantee
  • Helpful customer service in case you have questions
  • Additional free resources are a bonus

These are the reasons we recommend the 3.0 Complete Kit from Simply O3 for home-users. They also have machines that work well for practitioners. They hit all the criteria and have all the additional benefits.
