1 Important Information

Warnings

This motor is solely intended for use with the Midwest

®

E Electric Handpiece system. Any other type of use or alteration to the product is prohibited and can result in personal injury.

Never place an attachment on a running dental motor. Personal injury or damage to the equipment may occur.

Electric Dental Micromotors generate significantly more power than traditional air turbines and air motors.

Due to this increased power and torque, poorly maintained, misused, worn, or damaged handpieces can potentially generate friction induced heat capable of causing serious burns to patients and staff. The following guidelines should be followed to ensure safe operation of electric handpieces: o o o o

Carefully follow these maintenance instructions

Use only Midwest maintenance products

Examine the handpiece for damage before each use

NEVER apply pressure to the chuck release button while the handpiece is rotating or use the handpiece as a cheek or tongue retractor!

Page 5

1 Important Information

Immediately stop using the handpiece if it begins generating heat, excessive noise, or vibration

ISO 11498 states “Dental low voltage electric motors shall not be used in the presence of a flammable anesthetic gas mixed with air, oxygen, or nitrous oxide.” (Note: nitrous oxide by itself is not a flammable anesthetic gas.)

To dispose of this device adhere to local, state, federal and/or other governing regulations.

Precautions

WARNING:

The dental motor MUST be sterilized before use and after each use

Cleaning

DENTSPLY recommends the following steps between each patient use to prevent cross-contamination and to ensure continued trouble-free operation of your Midwest

®

E motor.

To Clean the Motor:

Clean the surface by creating a 60 to 70% alcohol and water solution at 30°C ± 5°C (86°F ± 41°F) and brush the surface using a brush such as medium-hard toothbrush. Lubricate the motor coupling as shown below.

Note:

Sterilization of the dental motor is required after cleaning

Page 8

2 Cleaning and Sterilization

Sterilization

Sterilize dental motors in a sterilizer per manufacturer recommendations

Immediately remove the product from the steam sterilizer after the sterilization cycle is complete. Corrosion can occur from moisture build up if left in the steam sterilizer.

The dental motor has a maximum temperature resistance of 138°C (280.4°F).

NOTE: The dental motor is autoclavable with two different validated methods:

1. Three pre-vacuum cycles for at least 3.5 minutes at 134°C ± 1°C (273.2°F ± 33.8°F)

2. Autoclave using the gravitation method for at least 90 minutes at 121°C ± 1°C (249.8°F ± 33.8°F)

Follow the autoclave manufacturer's Operators Manual for autoclaving

The drying time is at least 10 minutes.

The pre-vacuum is at least 20 kPa.

Bagged (wrapped) Sterilization:

DENTSPLY Midwest recommends using sterilization bags large enough such that the bag is not stretched

Storage of the motors should be in placed in a dry, cool room protected from dust.

3 Operation

3 Operation

WARNING:

Never plug an instrument on a running dental motor.

The dental motor must be sterilized before first use and after each use.

To connect the Motor to the Motor Housing:

Lightly coat the O-rings on the motor tube with a lubricant spray. Align the pins on the motor with the holes on the motor hose until the two match, twist the two together to lock as shown below.

Measure the air supply coming out of the end of the motor coupler as shown on the right.

The value must be at least 10 l/min.

WARNING:

Before treatment of the patient, ensure the dental motor is properly connected to the hose by gently pulling on the motor.

To prevent heat buildup on the patient’s teeth, the water spray must be at least 50 ml/min for appropriate cooling.

To prevent the dental motor from heating up, the air spray must be delivering 10 Nl/min.

3 Operation

To Disconnect the Motor from the Motor Hose:

Twist the Midwest

®

E motor in the opposite direction until loose and then pull apart

CAUTION:

Pressing the footswitch while connecting or disconnecting the dental motor can cause damage to the dental motor and to the supply hose. Do not connect or disconnect the dental motor while the footswitch is operating.

5 Maintenance

On a weekly basis, perform the following on the motor:

1. Check for Damage or Missing O-Rings

Check that all O-rings are present and undamaged on the coupling of the motor. If the O-rings are missing or damaged, replace them accordingly.

CAUTION: If the O-rings are missing or damaged, malfunctions and premature failure can occur.

To replace a new O-ring: squeeze the O-ring between your fingers until its shape resembles a bow, slide the O-ring to the front and remove it away from the coupler. Insert new O-rings into the grooves and ensure it is seated flush in the groove.

2. Lubricate the O-Rings

Lightly lubricate the O-rings with Midwest Plus

TM

lubricant by using a cotton roll coated with the lubricant spray.

NOTE: Do not use Vaseline or other types of grease or oil to lubricate the O-rings
