Product Overview

Reduce the spread of airborne viruses and bacteria

Dental Facilities

The Problem:

Without the use of personal protective equipment and other additional safety measures, dentists and oral hygienists pose a huge risk in contracting airborne viruses and bacteria from their patients during routine cleanings or dental procedures.

These activities often include high speed dental drills that have propelling force. The force from this drill used in combination with a water spray, generate airborne particles consisting of saliva, blood, tooth debris and dental plaque, all of which can be a vessel to transmit these viruses and bacteria.

Lastly, dental offices have a lot of equipment in their operating rooms and cleaning rooms which does not leave too much space for any more equipment.

Ruwac’s Solution:

Ruwac’s APOSE (Aerosol Point Of Source Extraction) System captures airborne particulates at the source (the oral cavity) preventing the transfer of viruses and bacteria from the patient to the dentist or dental hygienist as well as other surfaces and equipment in the room.

This is achieved with an extremely quiet and powerful vacuum producer that is located centrally in the building, ideally in a mechanical room. The vacuum will be piped with tubing to up to three operating rooms where there will be a localized “aerosol arm” with a flexible hood that captures aerosols during dental procedures.
