The Sleep Center Edition Hurricane CPAP Dryer
The Sleep Center Edition Hurricane CPAP Equipment Dryer will dry numerous CPAP supplies and sleep lab equipment simultaneously such as:
- Water Chamber
The Hurricane Dryer comes with a special drying port for use with a CPAP hose. Just connect the end of the hose to the drying port found inside the cabinet.
The timer has three automatic shut-off settings: 15, 30, or 60 minute dry times. As a precaution, the temperature controls are automatic and keep the cabinet temperature under 121 degrees Fahrenheit. A full basket (mask, headgear, cushion water chamber and tubing) will take approximately one hour to dry. Individual items will take less time depending on material, home temperature and relative humidity. Overstocking the dryer basket may result in longer dry times.
The Hurricane dryer is gaining attention accross the country and is proving its' worth in decreasing drying time for your CPAP Mask, Headgear, Tubing and related products. Washing your supplies and drying them in less than 60 minutes will add to your disinfection process and increase your complince of your therapy.

"I saw the Hurricane Dryer in the MVAP Catalog back in May, 2009 and decided to order it, since we hung our tubing and masks on a wall mounted peg board. Since receiving the Hurricane, my staff has been very pleased with its function and drying capabilities. We are setup to service 4 beds and this unit is ideal for our Sleep Center. We are in the process of hopefully moving in the near future to a New location and I will be ordering another unit in the next 3-4 months. I'll use one for just tubing and the other for just masks. For the price and function, I would highly recommend this product to any other Sleep Lab."

You should always shake your cleaned, wet CPAP supplies over a sink or basin to remove any extra water after rinsing. This prevents large amounts of water from pooling in the dryer, possibly causing an over-flow of the water tray and potentially preventing the items from becoming thoroughly dry.
Always empty the water tray after each drying cycle of supplies. CPAP headgear should be thoroughly squeezed of excess water before placing in the dryer for best results.
Recommendations for Best Drying Results
All items placed in the dryer should be disassembled for cleaning and drying
Separate the CPAP humidifier chamber from its base if possible
Separate the CPAP mask cushion or nasal pillows from the mask frame
Headgear can remain attached to the mask frame for drying
Place smaller parts in the bottom portion of the basket with the narrower "basket webbing"
Insert just one end of the CPAP hose over the hose-port. There is a notched hole, which must be kept clear to help evacuate excess water in the tubing. If you are drying CPAP hoses with a pressure-line in them, only place the end of the CPAP hose over the hose-port that does not have the pressure line protruding out of the side of the hose end
Air Filter Maintenance
Reusable foam filters should be replaced when they deteriorate and begin to fall apart, much as a sponge does. The foam filter should be washed with a mild detergent monthly and should be replaced every 6 months or more if the foam is torn.
