Under EU directive (91/689/EEC), dental practices should have means of amalgam separation fitted to their suction pumps. This is to prevent amalgam particulate (which can contain up to 50% mercury) from exiting with the wastewater.
To ensure that your dental practice meets current amalgam waste disposal legislation, Initial Medical’s BSI-accredited amalgam separator prevents hazardous discharge from entering your surgery’s wastewater stream.
Initial’s reliable Pure Motion® amalgam separator is intuitively designed with no moving parts for the safe extraction of amalgam waste, achieving up to 99.8% removal from your wastewater stream. Our Pure Motion® amalgam separator has been manufactured with simple ‘plug and plays’ fixtures and fittings to seamlessly retrofit against your dental practice’s existing wastewater systems.
As part of your service agreement, you will receive a professional installation from one of Initial’s highly trained dental engineers without requiring downtime to your practice. We will then replace your amalgam separator at regular service intervals to supporting your business needs.
The disposal of wastes into water systems is known as ‘waste water discharge’, and is subject to controls.
Healthcare organisations in particular often requires amalgam separation services. This is because they conduct procedures which can result in the discharge of various items and substances into sewerage systems.
While most waste water from dental practices is already subject to a number of regulations, this guidance has a particular impact on ‘dirty sinks’ in practices. It aims is to reduce the amount of amalgam, and subsequently mercury, reaching the sewerage system.
If you are using your dirty sink for cleaning procedures that involved mercury or amalgam contaminated equipment an amalgam separator should be fitted. To meet amalgam waste compliance, talk with an Initial expert now.
