October 19, 2012

The DentalEZ Grou unveiled its RAMVAC® Osprey family of dental air compressors this week during the ADA’s 153rd Annual Session in San Francisco. “We’ve been developing this for the past two years,” said Ryon Waddington, Senior Product Manager for DentalEZ. “We had to make sure it was going to be as reliable and bulletproof as other RAMVAC systems.” The quiet design of the compressors provides clean, dry, oil-free air in even the busiest dental office environment.

The DentalEZ Grou unveiled its RAMVAC® Osprey family of dental air compressors this week during the ADA’s 153rd Annual Session in San Francisco.

“We’ve been developing this for the past two years,” said Ryon Waddington, Senior Product Manager for DentalEZ. “We had to make sure it was going to be as reliable and bulletproof as other RAMVAC systems.”

The quiet design of the compressors provides clean, dry, oil-free air in even the busiest dental office environment.

“The response has been positive,” Waddington said. “It’s really exciting for us.”

With high quality air at a maximum pressure of 115 psi, the Osprey compressor operates at 100% duty cycle during peak operation times. The rocking piston design technology provides quiet operation while still producing more peak airflow than other compressors on the market. This is especially important with more dental equipment than ever requiring quality compressed air for optimal operation.

“Worry-free utility room equipment is the starting point for an efficient dental practice,” said Waddington. “RAMVAC compressors provide the dental professional freedom to focus on patient care, not equipment repair. We are extremely confident that the Osprey will become a utility room staple of the dental practice.”

There’s also an Owl Touch remote monitoring system that service technicians can use with the compressor systems. It features a 7-day calendar for scheduling things like turning lights or coffee makers on/off at specific times at the practice.

 Osprey compressors are available in either Basic or Smart control platforms:

 • Basic control platform - employs a traditional pressure switch and contactor arrangement to control the cycling of the compressor heads. Basic controls are equipped with switches to isolate or turn off individual heads (as required by NFPA99C) and hour meters.

 • Smart control platform (C2 Control) - utilizes a more modern digital technology, utilizing a pressure transducer and solid state relays to control cycling. Smart controls also feature head isolation, current sensing (head amperage draw), maintenance reminders, fault notifications, and average drain and recharge times.

The dual column desiccant dryer provides 100% continuous supply of dry clean free air. While one column is drying, the other is in operation. Moreover, desiccant cartridges are replaced right in the office.

The Osprey is offered in the following user sizes:

OSP22 1-3 User - single head, 2 hp, and 12 gallon tank

OSP13 3-4 User - 115 volt option, dual head, 2½ total hp, and 12 gallon tank

OSP23 3-4 User - dual head, 2½ total hp, and 12 gallon tank

OSP25 5-7 User - dual head, 4 total hp, and 20 gallon tank

OSP28 8-11 User - triple head, 6 total hp, and 30 gallon tank

The new compressors are also compatible with RAMVAC’s On Wall Logistics (OWL) center and multiple units can be easily linked together.
