Penetanguishene manufacturer to start producing mask sanitization device

The device, called the Puro, uses ozone gas to kill bacteria.

Magna Techform is in the process of retooling its operation in order to start mass production of a device which can be used to disinfect masks and other personal protective equipment.

Magna International Inc. had developed a device, called the Puro, for commercial and consumer years ago. Roughly the size of a picnic cooler, the Puro uses ozone gas to disinfect and deodorize anything that is not easily laundered.

“At the time, we felt there was a market for a device you could use to kill bacteria and smells on items you can’t put in a washing machine,” said John O’Hara, president of Magna Mechatronics.

Although a few prototypes had been engineering, designed and produced, the product had been shelved until recently. []
