The Hg Buster is to be installed after the pump (when possible) to capture any soluble mercury released from the pump into the waste water. With a M.A.R.S. LibertyBOSS amalgam separator, the expected service life is up to 12 months per filter.
1 1/2’’ Scrubber is added after your amalgam separator or pump. The service life of the Hg Buster is up to 1 year ($174.95). Replacement filters are available ($115.95). When the Hg Buster is depleted, you can return it to M.A.R.S. Bio-Med for safe recycling.
Contact and Non-Contact amalgam container filters are available for $14.95, and the convenient filter bags can be used with existing containers. The filters are designed to capture vaporous mercury. Do not store amalgam in liquid.

Dental Study # 12 July, 2016 Scrubber Test Study # 1
This study is a first examination of a scrubber evaluation. The evaluation is the simulation of using a M.A.R.S. Bio-Med separator with a M.A.R.S. Bio-Med scrubber. The amalgam contaminated water is run through the Amalgam Separator at a rate of 50 ml per minute to simulate the flow from one dental chair flowing at 1 gallon per 8 hour day.
Disclaimer: This is a first time pass through the current testing set-up. Additional changes have to be made to improve the simulation and include other scrubber types.
