About the UVC Decontamination Chamber (UVC-DC):
The UVC Decontamination Chamber is a Portable On-Site Face Mask Disinfection Chamber for disposable face masks. The disinfection method is eight (8) germicidal UV-C bulbs positioned in front of and behind the N95 face masks. 10 face masks can be disinfected during each 15-minute cycle. The UVC-DC can be used at hospitals, fire stations, police stations, nursing homes, etc., and can be located near the actual point of use. One or more UVC-DC's can be located at each station, department, wing, hallway or emergency room, so there is no need to handle and disinfect mass numbers of masks at a central or off-site location. The UVC-DC is simple to operate, easy to roll around, and versatile enough to be transported in the back of a minivan or SUV.
