Heat Box that cleans PPE's Donated to Charlotte Hall Veterans Home
 
January 28, 2021
 

Charlotte Hall Veterans Home is the fortunate recipient of a donation that will have a tremendous impact on the use/reuse and recycling of PPE. A group of Southern Maryland entrepreneurs and manufacturers teamed up to build a new dry heat oven to help health care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The modular unit can heat and sterilize 24,000 masks per day. The sterilization process takes one hour and can also be used for clothing, mattresses and gowns. The cost of the unit is around $150,000 and was donated to Charlotte Hall Veterans Home by St. Mary’s County Health Department via CARES funding. Pictured in last picture L/R:
