The Lumin CPAP disinfector utilizes the sanitization properties of UV light. It has in its light chamber a very high-powered light bulb. The drawer or light chamber is made with safety and efficiency in mind. It is composed of polished aluminum which allows the UV light to reflect off of all of the interior surfaces. The light reflection ensures that all of the parts of your CPAP equipment can have contact with the light. The UV light is effective as a disinfection process because it can eradicate germs, bruises, bacteria, fungus, and mold. By using a CPAP disinfecting device daily, these unwanted particles and pathogens are eliminated, and the Lumin can reassure you that your water tank and face mask are not getting you sick.
