Cavitron Plus System Maintenance Guide
IMPORTANT: Turn OFF water supply to Cavitron system or disconnect water quickdisconnect from the water supply when not in use.
Daily Maintenance
1. Open the manual shut-off valve on the dental office water supply system.
2. Install a sterilized Steri-Mate Handpiece onto the handpiece cable.
3. Set the Power Level Control to minimum and the Lavage Control to maximum.
4. Turn the system ON.
5. Hold the sterilized handpiece (without insert installed)
over a sink or drain. Activate the Purge Control button.
• The Purge button will light for two minutes indicating proper activation of the purge function.
• If the Purge button is activated with an insert present in the handpiece, the button will blink for 3 seconds and disable. Remove the insert from the handpiece and press the Purge button again.
• The Purge function can be interrupted at any time during the two minute cycle by pressing the Purge button again or by pressing the Tap-OnTM Foot Pedal.
6. After completing the purge cycle, place a sterilized 30kHz Cavitron® Ultrasonic Insert into the handpiece and set the Power Level Control and Lavage Control to
your preferred operating position for ultrasonic scaling.
1. Remove the used Cavitron® Ultrasonic Insert. Clean and
sterilize following the Infection Control Procedures that
were enclosed with your insert.
2. Hold the handpiece over a sink or drain and activate Purge function as described in Step 10 of the Start-Up procedure.
3. After the purge cycle is complete, turn the System to the OFF (0) position.
Remove the Steri-Mate® handpiece, clean and sterilize following the procedures outlined in the Cavitron Systems Infection Control Procedures booklet that was enclosed with your system.
5. Disinfect the surfaces of the cabinet, Power Cord,
Handpiece Cable, Tap-OnTM Foot Pedal and Cable
assembly (if applicable), Water Supply and Air Supply
lines as instructed in the Cavitron Infection Control
* Please refer to DFU for section references
6. Inspect the handpiece cable for any breaks or tears.
7. If using a closed water supply or DualSelect Dispensing System, check for adequate fluid volumes for the next patient.
8. When ready to use, place a sterilized Steri-Mate® Handpiece onto the handpiece cable assembly and insert a sterilized ultrasonic insert into the handpiece and
adjust system controls as preferred.
Follow the “Between Patients” maintenance procedures,
Steps 1 through 6. In addition, it is recommended to close the
manual shut-off valve on the dental water supply system.
*NOTE: Broad spectrum hospital grade water-based
disinfection solutions are preferred, such as Lysol IC.
Some alcohol-based disinfectant solutions may be
harmful and may discolor
plastic materials.
Weekly Maintenance
It is strongly recommended that this system be disinfected by chemically flushing the waterlines with a 1:10 Sodium Hypochlorite solution (NaOCl) at the end of each week. This can be accomplished by
connecting this device to the Cavitron DualSelect Dispensing System or a number of other devices available from your local distributors. Where this device
is connected to the Cavitron DualSelect Dispensing System, please follow the DualSelect system’s Directions
for Use manual. If connected to another device, please
follow those directions for use, keeping in mind that a chemical flush should be performed at maximum water flow for at least 30 seconds. The system should be left undisturbed for 10 minutes but no more than 30 minutes to allow the sodium hypochlorite solution to soak in the lines. As a suggestion, it is recommended that a sign be placed on the system stating that the SYSTEM IS
BEING DISINFECTED WITH A STRONG DISINFECTANT AND SHOULD NOT BE USED. When ready, flush system with clean water for at least 30 seconds or until sodium hypochlorite odor disappears. ALL CHEMICALS MUST BE FLUSHED FROM THE SYSTEM BEFORE IT IS READY FOR PATIENT USE.
Monthly Maintenance
When the water line filter becomes discolored, the filter should
be replaced to prevent reduced water flow to the Cavitron
Plus system. A 10-pack of replacement filters is available
by ordering Part Number 90158 from your local DENTSPLY
Professional distributor.
1. Verify that the system is turned OFF.
Disconnect the water supply hose from the dental office water supply. If a quick disconnect connector is
attached to the end of the hose, relieve the water
pressure by pressing the tip of the connector in an appropriate container and drain the water.
3. Grasp the fittings on either side of the filter disk and twist counterclockwise. Remove the filter section from either side of the water hose.
4. Install the replacement filter onto the water hose fittings. The filter should be positioned to match up with the correct hose fitting.
5. Hand tighten one hose fitting onto filter in a clockwise
direction. Tighten second hose onto filter in clockwise
direction. Reconnect the water supply line, operate unit
to bleed the air and test for leaks.
