Tool for Evaluation of Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide Disinfection of N95 Masks in Small Rooms

This spreadsheet tool estimates the vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) concentration in air of rooms used for VHP mask disinfection systems. The tool employs a single-zone mass balance analysis that accounts for room size, VHP losses to surfaces and air change rate. This tool is intended to support VHP disinfection efforts by providing estimates of VHP concentrations in the room being employed, but it does not describe or provide guidance on VHP disinfection applications.
