Acme Dental's new technology in dental suction systems offers dentists a source of dental suction and vacuum in their dental office's utility room.

"Before today, technologies available were either liquid ring systems that use a lot of water and energy, or other drying systems that require holding tanks that require much larger spaces and are more expensive than the PF-4 Evolution Vacuum," said Acme Dental Product Manager, Bo Coffman.

The vacuum's main features include a dryvac vacuum pump on the top of an electric motor, while the bottom has patented air and water separator technology.

"The operation is based on a principle of pulling vacuum on that water separator, which provides a constant flow of vacuum through a dental office," said Bo Coffman. "It eliminates the need for a large holding tank."

The PF-4 Evolution Vacuum reportedly saves a dental practice up to 90,000 gallons of water per year.

The CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry is ongoing through Saturday, May 5, and features 600 exhibiting companies and more than 140 new products.

The bi-annual CDA convention drew more than 27,000 dentists, dental professionals and students from across the U.S. The three-day convention will feature educational courses and 135,000 square feet of exhibit space where 568 exhibitors demonstrated new techniques as well as innovative products and services for dentists.
