Stakeholders

M Steryl

M-Steryl is a dry heat mask decontamination machine to resue masks. AMB Ecosteryl's dry heat decontamination protocol decontaminates the mask, which has been infected by any bacteria or by Covid-19, while preserving its integrity of performance. To comply with the FAMHP guidance, 3 types of tests (physical characteristics and lethal capacity) were carried out on 2 types of masks (type II surgical and KN95 respiratory protection).

Sustainability Benefits

  • Reusing the masks not only reduces the demand for new masks everytime, but also is a efficient way of handling used masks.
  • Can decontaminate surgical masks, FFP2, Shell-model Masks and Coveralls.

USP

  • Masks can be decontaminated 3-4 times.
  • Small scale in-situ decontamination provides more flexibility for clients to handle their used masks.

How does this work?

  • The user deposits the masks in a specific box.
  • The machine operator retrieves the box and inserts it into the machine without ever opening it, starting the cycle.
  • When the cycle is finished, the operator redistributes the boxes to the users.
  • From the beginning to the end of the operation, the box will never have been opened but the masks will be well decontaminated.
  • The M-steryl can contain 35 small boxes of each 5 surgical masks per cycle, which is equivalent to 175 decontaminated masks per cycle.
  • With the possibility of doing 12 cycles per day, it is possible to decontaminate 2100 surgical masks per day.
