Dental Aerosol Capture System Provides Post-COVID-19 Protection

Dentistry Today


Rhondium’s Rhondair Aerosol Capture System is a powerful vacuum and filtration device that effectively captures dental aerosols at the source, preventing the spread of airborne pathogens during procedures, according to the company. The single-use transparent shield creates superb aerosol capture capability without impeding the work area or direct line of sight, Rhondium said. The funnels are autoclavable for ideal infection control, and the two-speed vacuum fan is quiet and controlled by a foot pedal, the company added.

Certified HEPA filters remove 99.95% of all particles as small as 0.3 μm. The Rhondair is available in two configurations, including a freestanding floor unit that is small enough to fit to the left of the end of the dental chair and an almost-silent, in-ceiling unit that can also create a continuous negative pressure room environment. The Rhondair can aid in meeting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines for COVID-19 aerosol control measures while protecting staff and patients, allowing dental offices to safely resume business., Rhondium said.
