Canada Wide Standard:
Dentists need a high-efficiency separator to meet the City's stringent mercury discharge limits. Dentists must also submit a Pollution Prevention Plan every 2 years.
It must be noted that some ISO 11143 approved separator may not be capable of meeting these more stringent bylaw standards. The City Water Departmentís insistence in meeting specific mercury concentration limits places an additional responsibility on dentists to deal with these issues.
M.A.R.S' Amalgam Boss separator has been tested by Environmental Technology Verification Canada (ETV Canada), ISO 11143, and the American Dental Association (ADA), and its mercury removal efficiency at 4ppb/L of mercury at 99.17% exceed the most stringent City bylaw.
