It’s estimated that 100kg of mercury is deposited into our environment from waste amalgam in dental practices every year . This is having serious effects on our environment and may also be having an impact on our general health.
It’s time for dental practices to act.
Amalgam separators from Initial Medical are the ideal way to limit the amount of mercury that enters the wastewater from your practice. Using the principle of sedimentation, these separators remove up to 99.8% of amalgam particles from your wastewater streams.
Able to be placed on all routes whereby wastewater could reach the main sewage system including sinks where you wash any instruments used during treatment, these separators also contain no moving parts or electronics, providing noiseless function and minimal surgery downtime during services.
