A look at some of the available systems to help keep a dental lab's air free of dust and potentially harmful particulates.
Making sure the air is clean and clear of contaminants is nothing new for dental labs. Sure a respiratory illness such as COVID-19 adds another reason to take precaution, but technicians already spend good stretches of time creating fine dust and particulates while working directly over plaster and stone, ceramics and resins, and all manner of other materials. The fact that some of these items might also have transmissible pathogens coming along for the ride from the dental practice, is really just one concern among many.
Dust collection systems, often integrated with air filtration systems are standard in most labs, and these powerful vacuum systems help labs stay clean, and the air safe to breathe. Whether connected directly to a mill, integrated into the workbench, or mobile for use in different locations, a dust collector is a key piece of dental lab equipment.
