Why would a dentist want to separate and recycle amalgam?

Amalgam contains about 50% mercury, and mercury is ranked third in the US Government list of hazardous substances. Mercury comes after arsenic and lead, but ahead of all the organic toxins such as PCBs and pesticides. The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified mercury as the number one environmental poison.

While the ADA maintains that dentistry contributes only 1% of the mercury load to the environment, the real concern is that dentistry contributes 80% of the mercury load entering the sewer sytems.

Air-water separators are available in single, dual, and triple models. They are designed to separate the liquids entrained in the exhaust. A vapor-stop fitting allows the liquids to create a gas and vapor trap, thereby eliminating odors and contaminants from entering the equipment location. All models include vapor-stop, hoses, fittings, P-trap adapter and a mounting bracket.
