Cantel Expands its Dental Water Solutions Portfolio with Entry into Amalgam Separator Category
LITTLE FALLS, N.J., June 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cantel Medical Corporation(NYSE: CMD) today announced its entry into the dental wastewater management market through the recent launch of Syclone™ Amalgam Separator, previously marketed and sold under the brand name, Apavia™ Amalgam Separator. This new filtration technology and related assets were recently acquired from ENPRESS L.L.C. and its subsidiary Apavia LLC.
Syclone™ Amalgam Separator captures mercury-containing amalgam particles from the wastewater of dental offices through a combination of mechanisms, including filtration and centrifugation. In addition, it features a high containment capacity for extended service and pump life, and cutting-edge cyclonic design with rapid velocity and waste capture.
"As a market leader, we are committed to staying at the forefront of the latest industry trends and to providing quality solutions that meet the compliance needs of dental practices. With the Syclone™ filtration technology, we can effectively support the hundreds of thousands of dental practices in meeting the requirement of removing mercury from wastewater and improving the overall environment," stated Gary Steinberg, President and CEO of Crosstex.
"We look forward to integrating the Syclone™ Amalgam Separator technology into our expanding portfolio of solutions for infection prevention," stated Ken Plunkett, Senior Vice President Global Sales, Crosstex. "Given the EPA ruling on amalgam separators for wastewater management compliance by July 2020, the addition of this innovative technology further enhances our dental water compliance products, beyond our DentaPure™ Cartridge for dental water purification."
The Syclone™ Amalgam Separator will be available for customers in the coming months. For more information, please visit www.crosstex.com.
