Venting of Aspirators

Health and SafetyAll dental aspirator systems whether ‘dry line’ or ‘wet line’ should preferrably vent externally. Where this is not possible, a bacterial filter incorporating activated carbon to capture mercury vapour should be fitted in the exhaust line.

Ensure that aspirators vent externally or are fitted with a bacterial and activated carbon filter.

  • filters should be changed regularly, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
