Hengst launched its InLine patient filter for use in dental, medical and aesthetic applications. It will be included in all DF-series extraction systems sold by TBH GmbH. Operating as a prefilter in the capture element, it is located in the extraction hood closest to the patient, reducing deposits of drilling and grinding residue or biofilms in the extraction arm and downstream filters. InLine also captures emerging particles and aerosols for separation.
The InLine patient filter offers a filter area of 0.145 m² to clean flow volumes at a rate of up to 120 m³ per hour. According to ISO16890, filter efficiency is rated at ePM10, with a separation degree of more than 65%.
