DryMax-UV combines all 3 of the essential elements needed for effective drying and storage of your hearing devices: heat, moving air, and a desiccant that drives the relative humidity really low, capturing the moisture that is released. Drymax-UV is an energy-efficient electronic appliance designed for every night use to care for and store all varieties of hearing instruments— hearing aids, cochlear implant hardware, noise or tinnitus maskers, in-ear monitors, and even wireless earphones. Large enough to accommodate a pair of devices, and small enough to travel with you for continued benefits of drying and protecting hearing devices wherever you go. The latest innovation in our industry-leading Dry and Store product category. A perfect choice for taking care of your hearing instruments. Includes a 6 month supply of Dry-Brik Mini.
The hinged lid with a drying compartment will accommodate all types of hearing aids, including many body-worn aids. DryMax-UV can also be used with cochlear implant microphones, headpieces, and speech processors (both ear-level and body-worn).
Germicidal Properties (DryMax-UV model only):
The germicidal lamp is a short wave low-pressure mercury vapor tube that produces ultraviolet (UV-C) wavelengths that are lethal to micro-organisms. During its one-and-a-half minute cycle, the lamp will generate enough germicidal energy to yield a Log 4 kill rate, equal to 99.99 percent kill on common bacteria found in the external ear canal.
Elimination of this flora from hearing aids can significantly reduce itching and the reintroduction of infection-causing bacteria into the ear canal. Powerful germicidal energy removes moisture, dry cerumen, kills germs, and captures odors during its 8-hour cycle. To the user, this means less itching and irritation, and fewer recurring infections of the external ear canal. Ideal for kids whose devices become troublesome on a regular basis. Note: The UV-C lamp is a surface sanitizer only, and it has little to no penetrating power. This means that it is not damaging to plastics or earmolds. (Germicidal lamps are not to be confused with sunlamps or blacklight lamps. Even though they are also ultraviolet lamps, the UV produced by a sunlamp or blacklight is of longer wavelength and is not useful for germicidal applications.)

In most locations around the world, the DryMax-UV ships with a 6-pack of Dry-Brik Mini desiccants which is a 6 month supply. The Dry-Brik Mini contains an aggressive sorbent (13x mol sieve) packaged in an attractive, molded, disposable container. Each Mini has a shelf-life of at least 2 years, unopened. Once the foil label is removed, the Mini lasts 1 month. Replacement desiccants are inexpensive and are available from Dry and Store distributors and directly from Ear Technology Corporation. The desiccant also absorbs odors as it performs the drying process.
