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 operation of your device
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.
