AIR FLUX

The ARIA 19 Kit with a certified and properly installed filter, can assist in the filtration of breathable air and reduce the inhalation of contaminants.

APA adaptor has a non-return valve, so only fresh air passes through the filter and only filtered air enters into the mask.

The exhausted air has a different channel and it is expelled from the lower part of the mask, where another non-return valve ensures air will only exit from there.

(In the open source project is also available the design of  the Exhausted Valve Cover 22mm: an another adaptor made to filter the exhaled air).

Our snorkeling masks breathing technology is patented and certified.

The airflow and the CO2 levels are tested and safe.

The converted mask is a reusable and cleanable full-face shield.

DECONTAMINATION

After some preliminary tests carried out on Aria 19, APA and RD 40 adaptors, the following sanitization procedures are proposed.

They are based on recommendations from CDC, OSHA, the National Academy of Science and many hospitals in Europe, Canada, and USA. All the Aria 19 mask and adaptors are functional and seal well after each sanitization process.

 

  • Remove any filter connected to the adaptor prior to sanitization.
  • NEVER use any solvent, cleaner or abrasive product to clean the Aria 19 Mask, the RD40 and the APA Adaptor.
  • Do not sanitise a mask+adaptors protection system that is clearly damaged.
  • Be careful do not deform the Aria 19 Mask, the RD40 and the APA Adaptor during sanitization as it could negatively impact its fit.
  • Follow one of the methods below.Upon completion of the cycle, the filter, the Aria19 mask, the RD40 and APA adaptors must be stored in a closed PE bag ready for the next use in a dry and cool place. If one of them appears visually damaged or soiled, it should be discarded. Any mask and/or adaptors that has exceeded the sanitization cycles should be discarded as well.Please note that successful completion of the chosen method and cycle signifies appropriately sanitised filter, Aria 19 mask, RD40 and APA adaptors.

    Please note that this protocol is not formally approved, and each hospital should consult their EH&S officers or infection disease specialists for a standard operating procedure.
