Your dental practice vacuum system is not the most glamorous piece of dental equipment in your office, but without it, your day comes to a screeching halt. The newest dental suction systems are being made to be stronger and more durable than ever while keeping the noise level to a minimum. Remember to find a system with the capacity to provide suction to every one of your treatment rooms.
There are two types of dental central vacuum system: wet vacuum and dry vacuum.
Wet Vacuum System
• The initial investment cost is significantly less than a dry system.
• Savings in cost of equipment when installing redundant second motor versus the dry system
• Requires less square footage in the mechanical room
• Typically quieter than a dry system, which provides more flexibility for placement of a system in the office
• Increased water utility bill due to the usage of water for suction
• Inconsistent suction with multiple users
• Potential for higher maintenance costs due to recirculation systems that can stress vacuum motors
• If there is only one motor and it fails, the system is not functional until the motor is fixed
Dry Vacuum System
• Reduction or elimination of water used for suction, which decreases the ongoing cost of the unit dramatically (water bill reduction)
• Variable speed motor allows a more consistent vacuum flow for multiple users
• More efficient electrical use reduces electrical utility costs
• Less maintenance required
• If the motor fails, the system can be connected to a shop vacuum to provide emergency suction until a TechEdge service technician arrives to fix
•The initial cost of equipment is significantly higher than a wet vacuum system
• Dry vacuum unit can be loud, requiring its installation location to be farther away from the treatment rooms
• Larger square footage requirement in mechanical room due to size of equipment and requirement for venting/cooling
• Cost to install second motor for redundancy signifi cantly higher than wet options
