I do not sell the Coral UV Sanitizer, but I do recommend it. While it has not been certified to decontaminate N95 respirators, I personally believe it would be effective at doing so. To get the absolute best price, use the link and coupon code below:

Description

I recently looked into a number of ways to sterilize/decontaminate personal protective equipment, including N95 disposable respirators. I found the Coral UV Sanitizer to be a great option for decontaminating small items. I don’t sell the product, but I do believe in it enough to recommend it to others.

Please understand that the Coral UV Sanitizer has NOT been officially certified to sanitize N95 or P100 disposable respirators. This is just a personal recommendation. The bottom line is that I’ve ordered one for my family, and I encourage you to order one for yours.

You can find the Coral UV system for only $109 ($60 off their regular price) at:

They are out of stock until early May, but I recommend that you put in your order now. My guess is that all the units will be pre-sold very soon. By ordering now, you will receive one of the first units they ship in early May.

Please watch the video below for more details on decontamination of personal protective equipment, including my review of the Coral Sanitizer:

Also, if you decide to to use the Coral UV Sanitizer to decontaminate N95 respirators, you will want to install small adhesive metal hooks on the walls of the chamber. This allows you to elevate the masks much closer to the UV lights.

Hooks and mounting instructions are at PPE-Gear.

 

1. Are you a medical professional professional?

No. I am a concerned citizen who is just sharing my thoughts and ideas. Please do not treat my advice as professional advice, medical or otherwise.

2. Where can I find N-95 (or other) respirators?

Unfortunately, respirators are in very short supply due to the COVID-19 coronavirus. It is unclear when additional inventory will be available, but when it does, I will offer it.

3. Can I re-use disposable N-95 respirators?

The guidance for this is a little unclear. Medical agencies have advised that when shortages exist, N-95 respirators can be re-used if they’re not soiled. The problem is that there is no way to tell if the respirator has been contaminated with a viral or bacterial agent. For that reason, I recommend decontaminating disposable respirators between each use.

4. How can I decontaminate disposable N-95 respirators?

There is no approved method of decontaminating N-95 respirators. With that said, UV-C light has been shown to destroy a variety of pathogens, including flu viruses and coronaviruses. Based on literature that I reviewed, I believe that UV-C light applied to a 1 J/cm^2 energy level would be an effective method of decontaminating disposable respirators. This is my opinion and not a government-approved recommendation. Please see my video “Decontaminating N-95 respirators” for more information.

5. How can I decontaminate half-face or full-face respirators?

I recommended fully submerging the respirator in a bleach solution (1 part bleach to 49 parts water). After two minutes, remove, rinse with clean water, and allow to dry. My recommendation is based on a number of published studies, but should not be taken as government-approved guidance. Also, care must be taken when removing the respirator since it may be contaminated — wash hands carefully after removing.
