DreamStation Humidifier Dry Box Assembly
Philips Respironics' DreamStation Humidifier Dry Box Assembly is the replacement assembly used to prevent water damage to the DreamStation Heated Humidifier.
Please Note: This is for the dry box assembly only and does not include the inlet seal. If interested in purchasing the inlet seal, it must be purchased separately. The seal can be found here.
Dry Box technology is used on PR humidifier systems to protect the device from potential water leakage. In the instance that water may seep or spill from the water chamber into the unit, the dry box is designed to capture the water to keep it from spreading throughout the humidifier and CPAP therapy device.
The Dry Box Assembly has an inlet seal located on the interior of the humidifier as well as a smaller seal located on the exterior of the unit where the machine and humidifier meet. Please Note: Only the interior, inlet seal is intended to be replaced. If the seal on the exterior of the humidifier assembly is damaged, a new assembly must be purchased.

Caring for the Dry Box Assembly
Use the following steps to maintain the longevity of the Dry Box Assembly:
- For simple, daily cleanings, use a damp cloth to to wipe the circumference of the assembly.
- For more complex cleanings, remove the assembly with care and place it in warm water. Use mild soap and warm water to thoroughly clean the assembly. Wipe the seal to remove excess water and place it out of the sunlight to air dry completely.
Do not move the humidifier when the chamber is filled with water. Always remove the tank from the humidifier and extract all of the water when preparing to travel. After the tank has been emptied, let the chamber air dry completely away from direct sunlight. When all the equipment is dry, place the device in a carry-on bag to help protect the unit. Per the manufacturer, the carrying bag cannot guarantee the safety of the equipment when checked as luggage, so use the bag as a carry-on only.
