The Steelco DS610 is now also available as a fast cycle model reducing cycle times by upt to 50%

Through using Steelco Dental Washer Disinfectors, the dental professional has only to load the washer and select the cycle: all the rest – pre-wash, washing, thermal disinfection, hot air drying – is provided by the machines. At the end of the cycle all the instruments are ready for sterilisation without any need for further handling.

The mechanical wash action developed by Steelco is one of the main elements for effective cleaning during the washing process. Steelco has customised the washing pumps and circuits of each model ensuring high flow rate combined with effective spray pressure. Also an efficient Hot Air Drying System (HEPA filter optional) facilitates the total elimination of remaining water both inside and outside the instruments ensuring that they are full dry and ready for sterilisation.
