The narrow width, extensive length, and dark/moist environment of dental unit waterlines (DUWLs) provides the ideal home for the growth and survival of colonies of microorganisms.
When untreated or improperly maintained, the water flowing through these contaminated DUWLs and out through the air/water syringe or high-speed handpieces can carry pieces of biofilm that have broken off of the waterline wall – potentially harming patients, staff, and a practice’s reputation.
Minimize the potential for microbial growth in your DUWLs with one yearly installation of the DentaPure™ Cartridge.
How it Works
One Cartridge, One Year Lifespan
Less Maintenance Needed
- DentaPure™ DP365B and DP365M Cartridges continuously provide one-year or 240L of compliant1 procedural water that exceeds the current EPA standard (<500 CFU/mL) for potable water.
- DentaPure™ DP40B Cartridges continuously provide 60 days 40L of compliant1 procedural water.
- EPA registered to provide ≤200 CFU/mL for one-year or 240L of water2.
- FDA 510k2.
- Use is not restricted by the EPA Rule BMP for dental amalgam waste3.
- Reduces patient and staff bacterial exposure by eluting elemental Iodine into water used during patient treatment.
- Elemental iodine (I2) is non-allergenic – no protein is attached to it4.
- For use in independent water bottles and dental units municipally plumbed to city water.
- For use with all potable water.
- Minimal maintenance required following installation.
- Fewer protocols reduce the possibility of human error.
- No routine shocking.
- Bottle-style cartridges can be quickly and easily installed by office staff.
- Dispose of depleted cartridges in the regular office trash.
- Will not interfere with dental materials and bonding5.
- No concerns with corrosion or etching6.
- No harsh chemicals.
- Replacement reminder program in place.
- Dedicated DUWL technical support.
How It Works
The DentaPure™ Cartridge contains non-allergenic iodinated resin beads
As water passes through, the resin releases 2-6 ppm of atomic isotopes of elemental iodine (I2) during a typical dental treatment
The (I2) isotopes control the bacteria, keeping procedural water compliant1 for 365 days (240L)
