Dry And Store Global II Hearing Aid Conditioner is an electrical appliance for nightly use at home to store and care for all types of hearing instruments, including hearing aids, cochlear implant hardware, noise/tinnitus maskers, and ear monitors. It combines the three essential elements needed for effective drying: heat, moving air, and a desiccant that drives the relative humidity really low, then captures the moisture that is released. During the first ninety seconds of the Dry and Store Global II cycle, a germicidal lamp sanitizes the hearing instruments, after which conditioning continues for 8 hours. The unit then automatically shuts off , continuing to store the instruments safely until they are needed.

Features

  • Dry And Store Global II Hearing Aid Conditioner includes AC adapter
  • Fully automatic, microprocessor-controlled circuitry shuts off after 8 hours (or when the lid is opened)
  • Highly-effective germicidal cycle has the powerful germ-killing abilities
  • Air circulating fan continuously circulates warm, dry air for the entire operating cycle, causing moisture to move out of the hearing instruments by diffusion
  • Germicidal lamp illuminates for the first ninety seconds then turns off automatically
  • Powerful Dry-Brik II desiccant is like a magnet to the moisture that is released, ensuring that the moisture is gone for good
  • Single drying compartment accommodates all types of hearing aids, including many body worn aids, it can also be used with cochlear implant microphones, headpieces, and speech processors (both ear-level and body-worn)
  • Works with either the disposable Dry-Brik II desiccant or an oven rechargeable metal dry can, depending on location
  • Will also work with an inverter for 12V service
  • Lightweight and portable for traveling
  • Easy on the eyes and easy to operate

More Information

  • Electrical Characteristics:
    The unit timer resets itself each time the lid is opened, so that short-term conditioning is possible.
    The default AC Adapter has a US/Japan plug, but Schuko (European),UK, Australian, or South American plugs are available. Power supplies are interchangeable with all models (except the Professional model) and are CE Marked. They are certified to ETL, UL, and CSA standards, and carry GS(Germany), PSE/JET (Japan), C-Tick (Australia/New Zealand), Korean (KC),and SABS (South Africa) certifications.Will also work with an inverter for 12V service.Your Dry & Store Global II can be used anywhere in the world–no voltage converter is necessary. All that’s needed is the appropriate plug adapter, or you can travel “adapter-free” by ordering individual power supplies with native plugs. Choose from US, UK, European, Australian, or South African plugs.
  • Operating Features:
    Conditioning Cycle:

    Dry & Store has an operating cycle of eight hours.It conditions at an average temperature of 96.8°F - 104°F (36°C to 40°C) and a relative humidity of 19-25%, based on indoor ambient temperatures from 65°F to 86°F (18°C to 30°C). The germicidal lamp (see “Germicidal Properties” at right) illuminates for the first ninety seconds then turns off automatically.
  • Desiccant:
    Ships with either the disposable Dry-Brik® II desiccant or an oven rechargeable metal dry can, depending on location. Both types of desiccants are available as accessories, and Dry & Store Global II operates well with either, though a can-type does not provide the deodorizing function that the Dry-Brik provides.
    The custom desiccant contains an aggressive sorbent (mol sieve),packaged in an attractive, molded, disposable container. Each Dry-Brikhas a shelf-life of at least one year, unopened. Once the foil label is removed, the Dry-Brik II lasts two (2) months. Replacement desiccants are inexpensive and are available from Dry & Store distributors. The desiccant also absorbs odors as it dries.
  • Germicidal Properties
    The Dry & Store germicidal lamp is a short wave low pressure mercury vapor tube that produces ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths that are lethal to micro-organisms. During its one-and-a-half minute cycle, just 90 seconds,the lamp will generate enough germicidal energy to yield a 99% kill on common bacteria found in the external ear canal.
    - 4 watts UV-C @ 254nm in the Global II model produces over 1,000joules/m2 of UV energy.
    - For comparison purposes, a 90% kill on pseudomonas aeruginosabacteria requires only 55 j/m2.
    Elimination of this flora from hearing aids can significantly reduce itchingand the reintroduction of infection-causing bacteria into the ear canal.To the user, this means less itching and irritation, and fewer recurring infections of the external ear canal.
    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 ear molds. (Germicidal lamps are not to be confused with sun lampsor black light lamps, for while those are also ultraviolet lamps, the UV produced by a sunlamp or black light is of longer wavelength and is not useful for germicidal applications.) 
  • Battery Removal
    Batteries do not have to be removed from hearing aids before Dry & Store use. Independent tests by Eveready Battery Co. on their Energizer/Amplifier batteries showed a 10-20% gain in battery life under high (85% RH) humidity conditions, and no decrease in life at normal (50% RH)conditions. This was confirmed by a user survey which showed that over 50% of users experienced longer battery life.
