The Home Edition Hurricane CPAP Equipment Dryer uses static warm air to dry CPAP parts and accessories in an enclosed cabinet. Set the timer and warm air begins to fill the chamber. As air flows across all surfaces of the wet items, the warm air statically dries CPAP supplies.

- Heated Tubing / Hoses
- Water Chamber
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 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.

Hurricane Use TipsAlways shake the 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.
CPAP headgear should be thoroughly squeezed of excess water before placing in the dryer for best results.
Always empty the water tray after each drying cycle of supplies.
To reduce the risk of shock, a polarized plug has been installed to fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. A loose fit between the AC outlet and plug may cause overheating and distortion of the plug. Contact a qualified electrician to replace loose or worn outlets.

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.
Heated Tubing and the Hurricane
Heated tubing can be dried in the Hurricane Equipment Dryer.
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.
