Protect your working place - save your colleagues
The average dust exposure of a dental technician amounts to 12 kg a year. For this reason it is very important to use an optimal dust extraction system. The largest danger exists in fine dust.

But what are fine dusts?
They are dust particles with a size between 0,01 and 1 μm and dangerous for the lungs. A dental technician who does not extract perfectly burdens itself with cobalt, nickel, beryllium or quarz lives dangerousely. However also substances like cements, gold or synthetic materials can put your colleagues health at risk.

Why are fine dusts harmful to health?
The lung is particularly at risk from fine dusts. As this dust particles are very fine, they are capable of penetrating to the alveolar region, where they can cause the pneumoconiosis as a result of constant tissue reaction. Even on the skin they can release allergy.

The boundaries are exceeded quickly!
The defined limits of the BG-Directions are more quickly exceeded than anyone can think! MWC (Maximum Workplace Concentration): The MWC for quarz for example averages only 0,00015 mg/m³ ambient air. TGC (Technical Guidline Concentration): The TGC of nickel for example is only permits 0,0005 mg/m³ fine dust, while the TGC for cobalt is only
0,0001 mg/m³ ambient air. Concentrations above this limit values could have a lethal impact on the human body, such as poisoning, allergies and cancer. Therefore FTB offers you qualitative and high-value dust extractor dentalfilters, which are produced on the newest requests for material and quality-security. The related materials of our dentalfilters are produced exclusively in Germany and certified by BIA.
