Amalgam Separator Rule Reinstated

Removing mercury from the dental practice (and from the environment) is a good thing, and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is requiring dental offices to effectively manage dental amalgam discharges into sewer systems.  According to new EPA regulations, effective July 14, 2017, all dental offices must have begun the utilization of amalgam separators by July of 2020. The facilities that place or remove amalgam will be required to collect and recycle scrap amalgam, as well as clean the chair side traps with non-bleach or non-chlorine cleanser so as not to release mercury. Compliance to this updated regulation will reduce annual discharge of mercury by 5.1%, a significant reduction. Dental offices can meet this standard by using, properly operating, and maintaining a dental amalgam separator certified to achieve at least 99% reduction of total mercury.

As more information about the environmental impact of amalgam waste becomes available, the dental industry is responding with advances in its technology to capture and recycle this waste. Amalgam separators are solids collectors that capture the amalgam and remove it along with other sedimentation that flows through the dental waste stream, functioning with the use of the vacuum and the waste water flow. Building a reputation as an environmentally friendly practice can do much more than generate new patients. The better a practice’s reputation, the more talented employees you can attract, and the more loyalty you can inspire in patients. Promoting proper amalgam disposal can be included as one important aspect of your conscientious practice.

That’s why DentalEZ® Integrated Solutions offers the RAMVAC® Hg5 Amalgam Separator. This easy-to-operate and maintenance-free separator integrates well with our dry vacuum systems to reduce sludge buildup in the air-water separator tank, meaning less time and money spent on vacuum maintenance and repair. With a transparent, easy-to-change collection container that requires no tools, the Hg5 is available in multiple sizes to fit any practice and can be wall-mounted or free-standing. This separator is functional for both wet and dry vacuum sizes, is compact to save space, and has a flexible design for hard-to-fit applications. The RAMVAC Hg5 Amalgam Separator helps you meet the new EPA regulations and takes care of waste management and recycling so you don’t have to. Contact your local DentalEZ rep to learn more!

Getting to know the RAMVAC Amalgam HoG

The RAMVAC Amalgam HoG  made its official debut at the Chicago Midwinter Meeting  just a few  weeks ago. If you weren't able to attend the CMW and you're interested in learning more about the HoG, this post is for you!

The new RAMVAC® Amalgam HoG is a high efficiency filtration system designed to safely and effectively remove harmful waste in an environmentally responsible manner. Powered by Apavia®, the Amalgam HoG employs advanced vacuum technology and has an industry-leading retention rate of 99.7%. 

The Amalgam HoG provides dental practices and patients with economical and environmentally conscious water purification. The Amalgam HoG is equipped with an advanced cyclonic filtration system that efficiently and effectively separates and removes amalgam, mercury, alloy, and other unsafe contaminants from the waterline, protecting and extending the lifespan of the vacuum pump and virtually eliminating harmful waste into the environment. 

RAMVAC Amalgam HoG

The Amalgam HoG has a large tank capacity and is durably designed to safely and reliably service up to 10 water systems at one time. The large replacement canisters reduce the frequency of necessary change outs and are universally molded with industry-standard connections that fit all existing installed units. The simple design allows canisters to be removed and replaced without tools. Moreover, the Amalgam HoG has a clear exterior, providing users with visual fill level inspection and making replacement easily identifiable. All replacement canisters are environmentally safe and recyclable.

The Amalgam HoG provides ease of maintenance with no traps to deal with and, depending on the plumbing system, allows ambidextrous installation and replacement. The patented no-tool necessary housing allows for easy access to the filter for extremely simple replacements. Amalgam HoG filters come with a unique handle for lightweight and easy removal, a bag for proper disposal, and a double O-ring bottom canister exchange.

In addition, the Amalgam HoG complies with all existing and pending state regulations. The Amalgam HoG meets all proposed Environmental Protection Agency regulations and is compatible with all new standards, preparing users with early compliance. The Amalgam HoG is NSF certified ISO 11143:2008, and also complies with the American Dental Association’s Best Management Practices (BMPs) that protect the dentist, staff, and patient.
