December 19, 2019

Solmetex, LLC., announced this week the acquisition of the Syclone Amalgam Separator System from Crosstex. 

For more than 25 years, Solmetex has been an innovator in waste solutions, specifically amalgam separators, with a primary focus on ensuring dental practices remain compliant with the ever-changing regulatory environment. The acquisition will allow Solmetex to continue its commitment to deliver best-in-class, environmentally responsible dental waste solutions and programs to its physician partners and the communities they serve. 

Following the recent acquisition of Hu-Friedy by Cantel, the Hu-Friedy and Crosstex businesses are integrating to form the new Cantel dental division. The sale of the Syclone System comes as part of the decision to focus on the Hu-Friedy Crosstex leadership and expertise in the areas of instrument reprocessing workflow and infection prevention and compliance solutions in dentistry.

“We anticipate a high growth of the amalgam separator business and with our ongoing other priorities, we will not have the infrastructure needed to provide the proper level of support for this product,” said Ken Plunkett, SVP Global Sales of Crosstex. “We reached out to Solmetex, as the leading provider in this category because we are committed to ensuring the best possible transition for our distribution partners and their customers.” 

“Solmetex, has been recognized as the leading technology in amalgam separation for over 25 years, with our system installed in over 50,000 dental offices worldwide,” stated Kevin Danahy, President of Solmetex. “With the introduction of our NXT Hg5 system in 2017, we continued our technology evolution, pairing it with our best-in-class customer support that physicians and their practice staff have come to rely on. We look forward to continuing this same tradition of excellence with Syclone users both today and in the years to come.” 

Transition plans are currently under development and current Syclone users are asked to contact their local dealer or Solmetex at www.solmetex.com to address any questions and coordinate their transition to the NXT Hg5 Amalgam Separation System.
