Amalgam Separator for Dental Practices

Amalgam Separator for Dental Practices

Legal compliance with amalgam recovery

Dental amalgam is produced by mixing sliver, tin, zinc and copper powder with up to 50% mercury. Amalgam is used by dentists to fill irregular cavities in teeth as it will harden and remain durable in the mouth.

The Hazardous Waste Directive (91/689/EEC) stipulates that all amalgam waste produced in dental practices must be disposed of without endangering human health and the environment. Amalgam waste is also classified as hazardous under the European Waste Catalogue requirements and must be collected and the mercury recovered.
