Suction Systems

Appropriate solutions for any laboratory

Dust in dental technology: a big occupational hazard!

Dental technicians are especially at risk. According to statistics by the BGFE (German Occupational Society for Precision and Electrical Engineering), occupational skin and lung diseases are considerably more prevalent among dental technicians than the BGFE average. Fine airborne particles are especially dangerous. Highly detrimental effects on the skin and respiratory organs have also been identified for dental gypsum and investment materials. The same is true of non-classified particles with general exposure limits.

Occupational health and safety are non-negotiable

If dental laboratories fail to use suction, most dust that is generated will clearly exceed occupational
exposure limits. Suction to eliminate dusts is invariably required by German regulations governing the use of hazardous
substances. Furthermore, all vacuum systems must be mandatorily tested for effectiveness at least once
a year.

We support you with our experience

Dust exposure can be dramatically reduced by the use of optimized funnel systems and state-of-the-art vacuum
equipment. Vacuum systems are particularly effective if they convey exhaust air to the outside of the building. This will also
improve the indoor climate throughout the laboratory. Zubler offers a number of vacuum options, so you can
always select a solution that is optimized for the needs of your laboratory.
