OzonePRO available from stock at MAHLE Aftermarket UK

Date: Wednesday 14 October 2020

The MAHLE OzonePRO, a new full-automatic, electronic sanitising system has entered the UK aftermarket. It provides protection against germs and unpleasant odours in vehicle cabins and other indoor spaces.

Olaf Henning, Corporate Executive Vice President and General Manager MAHLE Aftermarket, said: “Especially at a time like this, people want reliable protection against germs and odours in cars and buses, as well as other indoor spaces. With the new OzonePRO unit, MAHLE is offering a dependable solution for this. We have designed OzonePRO for use in vehicles but there’s much more you can do with it. Hotels and companies with offices and business premises can also benefit.”

The new unit from MAHLE uses ozone to purify the air and surfaces inside cabins and other interiors. To do this, all doors into the vehicle or room must be closed. Following a very successful launch, the OzonePRO unit – launched by MAHLE Aftermarket – is now available to order from its Bilston-based warehouse. The unit allows for the hygienic sanitisation of passenger cars, buses, and commercial vehicles and is being embraced by MAHLE Aftermarket’s distribution network to push the product through to workshops throughout the UK.

Killing viruses, germs and unpleasant odors, the product has many uses and is likely to be of interest to car rental companies and logistics service providers, who can use it to ensure that vehicle cabins are free of germs as well as odours when handed over to customers.

It also offers increased protection for public authority vehicles used by different crews. In addition to vehicles, the unit is suitable for use in hotel rooms and business premises.

While the sanitising process is underway, the OzonePRO sensors continuously measure the concentration of ozone produced in the environment and adjust this until the ideal value is reached. This value is maintained for some time to ensure a hygienic clean. At the same time, OzonePRO avoids excessive ozone values in order to prevent oxidation damage to the interior, for example. The unit is fully automated and notifies the user when the process is finished. Vehicles and rooms can then be safely entered again. The entire process can be controlled and monitored externally with the associated O3-Easy app. Once the sanitisation process has been completed, a report can be printed for the customer if necessary. The new OzonePRO unit communicates with all other MAHLE service equipment via Bluetooth. It can be simply connected to a cigarette lighter or is available upon request with an additional power supply unit for use in indoor spaces. With an ozone output of 5,000 mg/h, one unit can sanitize interiors with a surface area of up to 40 square meters or of around 100 cubic meters in volume, roughly equivalent to the volume of a coach. Weighing only three kilograms, the unit is also easy to handle.
