In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and the shortage of N95
masks and PPE in the supply chain, Chant Engineering Co. Inc. of New
Britain has designed the Puratizer, a low-cost portable mask sanitizer
unit to sanitize masks in just five minutes. Using this unit, masks can
be reused up to 10 times each. This will not only save costs on PPE
purchases but will also help alleviate the current supply chain
“It’s really been an amazingly crazy six weeks, from concept to
prototype, to having it tested at the local hospital and now ready and
in production. But that’s what small businesses like ours can do,” said
Philip Chant, president of Chant Engineering.
The easy to operate, lightweight and compact unit uses UVC LED
technology to give masks a full coverage UVC dosage in just five minutes
and is capable of sanitizing up to 20 masks per hour, said Christi
Chambers, marketing coordinator for Chant. For information, visit
