Dayco helps transform snorkelling mask into life-saving ventilator

0

Dayco is using its manufacturing resources to help fight COVID-19 by producing a vital component in the conversion of a readily available snorkelling mask into a life-saving ventilator.

The adaption of the mask, normally supplied via sports outlet Decathlon, has been led by an inventor supported by a project team including Italian consultancy Isinnova, eight individuals and several partners, and has transformed the snorkelling mask into a vital resource that is already being used in hospitals in northern Italy and by the Italian Red Cross.

Dayco has produced a key component, the Charlotte Valve, that allows the mask to be converted to a medical respiratory device, and is producing it on 3-D printers at its San Bernardo d’Ivrea facility in northern Italy.

President of Dayco Global Powertrain Operations, Michael Weiss, said: “To be able to contribute in the fight against this terrible virus was an easy decision to make as we have both the facilities and machinery required to make the Charlotte Valve in the required numbers, as well as a duty to respond to the national and international emergency.”

All files required to produce the 3-D printed valve are available here: Download
