Cleaning and disinfecting agents
Safety-relevant notes on cleaning
To prevent microbiological contamination, the built up of deposits and soiling it is imperative that the
suction hoses, waste water lines and the amalgam separation system are cleaned daily with special
cleaning agents for dental suction systems.
CAUTION
Use only generally accepted cleaning agents for dental suction systems. medentex
recommends the use of non-foaming and bleach/chlorine free cleaning agents.
Carefully follow the directions on the cleaning agent of your choice.
Only practice personnel that have received appropriate instructions may apply the
cleaning agent. medentex highly recommends non-foaming cleaning agents.
Please clean your suction lines daily and see User’s log: daily cleaning actions, attached
