Put Safety First

Your air compressor’s ability to create cleaner air directly affects the safety of your patients. When you use this piece of equipment, it should reduce the risk of exposure to bacteria, pathogens and microorganisms. Air compressors accomplish this by compressing, cleaning, drying and storing air. That steady supply of high-quality compressed air is then used by any handpieces powered by the compressor. Any new practice will obviously need a good compressor and vacuum pump, but it’s also important to know when it’s time to replace your current equipment. If the air being produced isn’t clean enough, or if the compressor has weak pressure, it may be time to upgrade to one of our new or refurbished dental compressors for sale.

How to Choose a Dental Air Compressor

There are a number of factors to keep in mind when selecting a compressor for your practice. First, think about what size you need based on your required output; allow 1 HP for every two users. Quieter lubricated models create a more pleasant experience for both personnel and patients, while oil-free compressors require less maintenance. Think about what parts and accessories you may need besides your dental air compressor, such as water recirculators, vacuum pumps and more.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How much does a dental compressor cost?

When you shop for a dental compressor at DuraPro Health, the average cost ranges from less than $1,000 to more than $9,000. The range varies depending on the type of compressor and whether it’s a new or refurbished model. In general, an oil-free compressor is going to be less expensive than one that uses oil. However, the choice may depend on equipment size since lubricated models are necessary to power large dental equipment.

How long do dental air compressors last?

Considering that a compressor is going to be used on a regular basis in a dental environment, a compressor typically lasts between 10 and 15 years. This estimate assumes that the compressor is going to be serviced during its use.

How do you maintain an air compressor?

To ensure a compressor remains in good running condition, it should be inspected every two years. This time frame allows technical issues to be found and serviced before they become bigger problems, such as causing the compressor to overheat. Compressors overheat for a number of reasons, including:
  • Poor ventilation or placement near a heat source.
  • Dirt buildup inside the dental compressor.
  • The compressor isn’t taking in enough air.
  • Worn-out head gaskets and/or valves.

How does an air compressor connect to a dental unit?

Connect the hose to the regulator valve. Plug the dental tool into the compressor. Plug the compressor into a power source, then let the unit’s tank reach full pressure. Adjust the pressure to the desired level.
