Ontario supports Clean Flow Healthcare Mini with $2-million investment
By Anthony Capkun
August 5, 2020 – Ontario is investing $2 million to help manufacture a sanitizing device called the Clean Flow Healthcare Mini, which was originally designed for cleaning fresh produce.
“This is an incredible success story about an Ontario apple farmer taking technology used to decontaminate produce and converting it into a device that can decontaminate personal protective equipment,” said Premier Doug Ford.
The Health Canada-approved device can decontaminate up to 800 N95 masks per hour, as well as other PPE.
The technology uses UV light, hydrogen peroxide and ozone to decontaminate surfaces, and can destroy up to 99.99% of pathogens and viruses on surfaces.
With the province’s investment through the Ontario Together Fund, Clean Works Medical and Pure Life Machinery will scale up production of the Clean Flow Healthcare Mini portable disinfectant device to nearly triple current capacity.
Ontario’s funding will support 19 new jobs and the purchase and installation of metal fabrication, equipment assembly, and facility modifications.
