Suction units in dental technology
(German: Absauggeräte in der Zahntechnik)

In the dental laboratory suction units remove harmful fumes and dust from the air. This also avoids contamination of materials, equipment and instruments.

Electrically operated extractors are used as single, dual or multiple units as well as laboratory suction units for use at many technical workstations or dust-generating machines such as sandblasters or polishing motors. Suction units are in principle differentiated between “dry suction” (e.g. for sandblasters) and “wet suction” (e.g. for dental laboratory turbines). Generally, the aim is to position the suction as near to the location where the dust is generated as possible. In addition to the more common stationary units, mobile versions are also available.

Suction units have the following technical components:
