New EPA Regulations

This letter is an update from Amalgaway, Inc. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has some new regulations that affect your dental practice.

The new regulation, EPA 40 CFR Parts 403 and 441, Effluent Limitations, Guidelines and Standards for the Dental Category, and how Amalgaway, Inc. may assist you. The EPA web site continues to show the regulatory process status as: Final Rule. It could be anticipated that the EPA will file an updated rule soon. The present affective date is December 2016.
Amalgam Separators: The proposal would require dental practices to comply with requirements for controlling the discharge of mercury in dental amalgam into the Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW). Amalgaway offers the Amalgam Collector, which meets all the EPA requirements, ISO 11143 certified, and over 99% efficient. Amalgaway offers the CE-18 and the CE-24, both competitively priced.
Dental Industrial Users (DIU’s): All dental offices are going to be categorized as DIU’s, with few exceptions. There are initial and annual discharge monitoring, reporting, and record keeping requirements in the new regulations. Amalgaway can assist you in this effort.

Line Cleaners: section 441.50 Pretreatment for new sources, states line cleaners must have a pH of 6 to 8, and must be done weekly. This eliminates most chemical cleaners. Amalgaway offers Bio-Pure, which is a microbial cleaner. It is pH neutral. It also eliminates trap hand cleaning, removes paste build up, and sludge in lines. Weekly operator costs are $2.20 or below. It is recommended by UCLA Faculty Group and by 87% of Dental Advisor users. Bio-Pure also keeps the amalgam Separator clear, a requirement of the regulation.

All Amalgaway products, including our full line of Dental amalgam recycling kits, have prices listed on our web site. To encourage the use of Bio-Pure line cleaner, we will offer our starter kit for $119.00, a 25% savings over list price. The kit includes a dispenser, which is required, a 6 ounce evacuation restore, and a 14 ounce cleaner. Bio-Pure is guaranteed to improve vacuum suction. For continued maintenance, Amalgaway will offer customers our 48 ounce line cleaner for $255.00.
