M.A.R.S’ Guide to Properly Maintained Amalgam Separators and Consultations

M.A.R.S Bio-Med Technical Specialist Jason Buyukozer guides you through an understanding of amalgam separators and how to get a free consultation.


According to a 2014 City of Toronto survey, 70% of amalgam separators in Toronto is either not installed or maintained correctly. The issue is, very few dentists and some service companies do not have access to the required information to make sure amalgam separators are set up according to the City by-laws and maintained correctly, per the manufacturer’s specifications.

When Your Amalgam Separator is Not Maintained Properly

When an amalgam separator is not maintained properly, being non-compliant could be the least of your worries. Most Municipalities and Dental Associations do not have reporting systems in place to ensure compliance yet. The biggest issue of having an improperly maintained amalgam separator is it can damage your equipment. The following are some issues related to poor amalgam separator maintenance;

    • Your office might void the warranty of your pump
    • Experience partial or complete loss of suction
    • Require replacement of evacuation lines
    • Required replacement of a pump
