Low Speed Handpiece Maintain Tips

Low Speed Handpiece Maintain

Step 1: Surface Clean
Wipe down the handpiece with a damp disposable cloth. If there is still some bioburden left on the handpiece, clean under running water using a brush. A mild detergent is acceptable. Be sure that all bioburden is removed before proceeding to the next step as it can act as a protective sheild for microorganisms in the sterilizer.
Important:
Do not use any chemical solutions for cleaning. Foreign substances may have a negative effect on the sterilizer and/or handpiece through a harmful reaction during the sterilization cycle.
Do not submerge the handpiece in water, ultra sonic cleaner, or disinfectant.

Step 2: Choose Adapter
Choose the “E” type I Spray adapter (#ISN-LSE) and thread it to the nozzle of the lubricant.

Step 3: Spray Lubricant
Insert the nozzle into the back end of the attachment and spray for approximately 2-3 seconds or until you see the lubricant exiting the head of the attachment.

Step 4: Disassemble
Unscrew the head of the attachment and remove the oblique shaft.

Step 4: (Continued)
The oblique shaft is the shaft that connects the head and the body of the attachment. (See image on the left)

Step 5: Lubricate Shaft
Insert the oblique shaft into the “E” type nozzle that is already threaded to your can of lubricant, insert the long end first which contains the lubrication hole.
Spray lubricant for 2-3 seconds.
Assemble the attachment back together.

Step 6: Dry
Wipe down the exterior of the attachment with a dry towel to remove and expelled fluid or debris. The handpiece should be completely dry at this point.

Step 7: Bag & Sterilize
Bag and sterilize according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
BE SURE TO ALLOW HANDPIECE TO COMPLETE THE DRYING CYCLE
Do not relubricate handpiece after sterilization.
