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.
Wow Fast and very helpful srvice
My local Vancouver Island CPAP store wanted $2400 for an S10 RESMED including $400 extra for the humidifier tank that already comes with the machine. They also told me that I couldn t get extended medical insurance if I bought online. Wow , this is totally untrue. I found CPAP clinic through several references on a CPAP forum. Talked to the manager on the phone and got the same machine for $980, delivered to my home at no extra cost and my extended medical insurance paid for it. The service offered by CPAP Clinic is great. They even threw in some extra filters with my order for free. Fast, very helpful and I will be a repeat customer because of my experience. Dennis Nanaimo BC
Very disappointed with the quality of the Phillips Wisp mask frame and hose assembly. Seven to ten days after the 90 warranty the cloth-covered mask frame disintegrated on one side of the mask. I repaired the break with tape only to have the plastic clips on the hose cease to remain connected to the mask (more tape). I made the mistake of not contacting VitalAire immediately, and now have no recourse but to purchase new equipment. "Great warranty" folks on a cheaply made but expensive product.

Great service & prices !
I was on a clinical trial in a Montreal Hospital. The trial was nearing the end and it was time to return the trial machine and get my own. I shopped around Montreal and then online and found this site. They had the best prices (I saved around 800$ compared to Montreal prices!) and the service is great! They answered my e-mail very fast and did a follow-up. I am happy I found them.
