Handpiece Purge Units
Dental handpiece repair is one of highest recurring costs a dental practice endures. Handpiece purge units are the absolute best investment you can make toward reducing these costs. Purge units vary from no frills, to all the bells and whistles. Which ever you choose, be sure to use the lubricant designed for that particular unit. Units capable of employing the Kavo Quattrocare for maintenance units would be our preference. Kavo seems to have figured out the expanding foam thing better than most. This is especially important for purge units used to maintain speed increasing contra angles, which require a series of well lubricated gears to operate correctly over the long term. Expanding foam penetrates these areas better for a more complete surface coverage.

All the units available here will be effective. Many have variable cycle times. We recommend you choose the longest (usually 1 to 3 minutes) which just helps to ensure you get the best possible debris removal. It will still be considerably faster than manual lubrication, and most units do at least 3 at a time, including low speeds and contra angles.
