Philips Respironics' DreamStation Humidifier Dry Box Assembly is the replacement assembly used to prevent water damage to the DreamStation Heated Humidifier.
Please Note: This is for the dry box assembly only and does not include the inlet seal. If interested in purchasing the inlet seal, it must be purchased separately. The seal can be found here.
Dry Box technology is used on PR humidifier systems to protect the device from potential water leakage. In the instance that water may seep or spill from the water chamber into the unit, the dry box is designed to capture the water to keep it from spreading throughout the humidifier and CPAP therapy device.
The Dry Box Assembly has an inlet seal located on the interior of the humidifier as well as a smaller seal located on the exterior of the unit where the machine and humidifier meet. Please Note: Only the interior, inlet seal is intended to be replaced. If the seal on the exterior of the humidifier assembly is damaged, a new assembly must be purchased.
Tips to Remove the Dry Box Assembly and the Inlet Seal Open the humidifier by gently pushing forward on the long tab found on the top of the humidifier. Remove the water chamber with both hands to prevent water from spilling into the heated device. Turn the humidifier to locate the dry box assembly located on the opposite side of the flip lid. Locate the small latch found on the side of the assembly which is nearest to the inlet seal. Press the latch to disengage the assembly from the humidifier. Once the unit has been removed, the seal will easily come apart from the dry box assembly. Caring for the Dry Box Assembly Use the following steps to maintain the longevity of the Dry Box Assembly: For simple, daily cleanings, use a damp cloth to to wipe the circumference of the assembly. For more complex cleanings, remove the assembly with care and place it in warm water. Use mild soap and warm water to thoroughly clean the assembly. Wipe the seal to remove excess water and place it out of the sunlight to air dry completely. Travel Tips Do not move the humidifier when the chamber is filled with water. Always remove the tank from the humidifier and extract all of the water when preparing to travel. After the tank has been emptied, let the chamber air dry completely away from direct sunlight. When all the equipment is dry, place the device in a carry-on bag to help protect the unit. Per the manufacturer, the carrying bag cannot guarantee the safety of the equipment when checked as luggage, so use the bag as a carry-on only.
Alex visited me at my workplace to deliver and set up the machine rather than me having to go out all the way to Vaughn. The initial machine developed a fault and Alex quickly got another machine to me. I ve bought all my consumables from the CPAP Clinic over the phone and the service has been both easy and quick. OUTSTANDING service from this company.

I live on Vancouver Island. I called first and discussed what I was looking for in a machine. The person I talked with provided me with a price that was over $1000 less than my local dealer. I was asked to submit my prescription by email. After it was approved and within 2 hours I was provided with a link to order. After ordering I received a confirmation and follow up email when the machine was ready to send. The pressure and ramp was preset and a few extra filters thrown in. Altogether in less than a 24 hours my order was made, processed and the CPAP machine sent to me. Five days later my CPAP arrived. Great communication. Very quick, friendly and efficient service. Will definitely recommend and have them assist me with future purchases.

IT was very easy to order on the phone. Viberly from Mississauga knew her machines and accessories, plus an excellent knowledge of sleep apnea. I ordered a ReS MeD AIRSENSE 10 with humidair and climate control and a nasal mask. I received my order a week after. I am very satisfied with the excellent service from Viberly. And the RESMED airsense 10 is excellent and quiet.
