MTU Engineers Build Mobile Unit to Clean COVID-19 PPE

A refrigerated shipping container. Commercial-grade baking sheets. A modified oven.
These are the key pieces of a prototype that uses heat to sanitize personal protection

The idea is simple: Disinfect PPE at temperatures hot enough to break up coronaviruses
and do so in a big, moveable oven that can be quickly made with local, off-the-shelf
parts that are easy to get and put together. The unit can clean 5,000 to 10,000 PPE
units every two hours and can run continuously. 

The design is streamlined: Use a thick-walled shipping container with the refrigeration
unit swapped for a heating unit
