THE NanoPURE™ WATER FILTER & PURIFICATION SYSTEM HAS MANY GREAT FEATURES.
Supplied water first enters the system and is “pre-filtered” through a 5 micron sediment filter, basically removing large particles from aging pipe deteration i.e. rust.
Next the water is filtered through a “KDF 85” activated charcoal carbon filter. Everybody is aware of the filtering properties of activated charcoal carbon. Ever have a fish tank?? The carbon filter removes chlorine, tannins, methylene blue mercury and lead.
The water is then off to the “NanoPURE™” media for purification and final polishing.
Once the water passes through the NanoPURE™ MEDIA there is a 20% increase in oxygen in the water and a temperature drop of 2°. These two factors prevent new bacterial growth.
Hence the existing bio layer can and will be eliminated over time (usually 90 days ±) and a new biolayer can not form.
ADA PROTOCOL FOR SERVICING
OF DENTAL UNIT WATER BOTTLES
“DO YOU REALLY DO IT?”
Each day the dental unit water bottle is filled with distilled sterile water to its capacity of 750mL (.75 liters), removed from the dental unit each night, dental water lines are purged each night and dental water bottles are thoroughly cleaned once a week.
Each time a water bottle is filled, a disinfectant tab (pill) is added to the bottle.
Biolayer is the long term build up of bacterial and pollutants that stick to the sides of pipes (i.e. city water infrastructure) or in the case of a dental office, the sides of the dental tubing within our dental/hygiene units.
The following pictures illustrate a typical biolayer buildup in a dental office that is not only hazardous to your patients, but can end up preventing your handpieces/cavitron from even working!!
