Thank you for your recent purchase of the Lumin BULLET 

Hose Sanitizer. The BULLET was developed by 3B Medical, a 
manufacturer and distributor of CPAP devices and masks.

The Lumin BULLET device may be used with all brands of 

tubing, including heated hoses.

The Lumin BULLET disinfects using a very specialized and high 

powered UVC light source, the same type of light source used in 
hospital operating rooms and sterile clean rooms. UVC light will 
disinfect up to 99% of harmful bacteria, pathogens and fungi that 
can cause infection and illness. UV light is fast, safe and clean. 
There are no harmful chemicals.

The 3B Lumin and Lumin BULLET products are intended 

to supplement your CPAP accessory manufacturer’s cleaning 

Please read and follow all directions in this user manual. Any 

questions can be directed to

 support@3Bproducts .com .

Helpful Hint:

We recommend disinfecting 
CPAP hoses twice weekly, and 
daily during cold and flu season.

Understanding Your Lumin Cleaner

The Lumin BULLET operates using a specialized high powered 

germicidal UV LED. UV disinfection is effective on bacteria, viruses, 
mold and fungi and is well suited for keeping your CPAP tubing 
free from pathogens that can make you sick. CPAP hoses are 
in contact with warm moist air throughout the night, the ideal 
environment for breeding bacteria. Use of the Lumin BULLET will 
help keep you healthy and compliant with your CPAP equipment.

Because the Lumin BULLET operates using a form of high 

energy light, it is very effective in disinfecting your CPAP tubing. 
To keep your hose clean and reduce the risk of infections, we 
recommend using BULLET twice weekly on your hose. Maintain 
healthy breathing with quarterly replacement of your CPAP hose. 
3B’s Ultra Noir CPAP hose is available from your Lumin BULLET 
reseller or online at 3BLumin.com.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Lumin BULLET work?

Lumin works by emitting high energy light within a narrow spectrum 
referred to as UV-C. The Lumin relies on a lhigh powered germicidal 
UVC-LED designed to produce the highest amounts of UV energy – 
where 90% of energy is generated around 254nm. This light is very 
close to the peak of the germicidal effectiveness curve of 265nm, 
the most lethal wave to microorganisms. The dose of UV-C emitted 
in one 1 minute cycle is sufficient to kill most bacteria and mold on 
a surface. The use of UV-C is environmentally friendly, leaves no 
residue or toxic gases or chemicals. UV-C systems are currently in 
use to disinfect operating rooms, ambulances, emergency service 
vehicles and other high touch areas.

Why doesn’t the Lumin use Ozone, like other CPAP cleaners?

Because 3B Medical is a manufacturer of CPAP equipment, masks 
and accessories, we have a heightened level of commitment and 
concern for our patients. We did not feel that the safety concerns of 
ozone being used in the home were being adequately disclosed. Due 
to the lifestyles of many of our patients, we also had concerns that 
the two hour wait period in using CPAP equipment might be ignored 
and harmful OZONE inhaled. The U.S. EPA published a serious 
warning about use of ozone in a home environment:

“When inhaled, ozone can damage the lungs. Relatively low 

amounts can cause chest pain, coughing, shortness of breath 

and throat irritation. Ozone may also worsen chronic respiratory 

diseases such as asthma and compromise the ability of the body 

to fight respiratory infections.”


For that reason, in designing the Lumin BULLET, care was taken to 
find the safest and fastest way to disinfect CPAP accessories. UV-C 
was by far the best solution.
