The EY7010 (permanent) or EY211 (disposable) water softener, installed before the RO unit, is a vital piece of equipment as it helps protect all your Dental Unit Water Systems (DUWS). Having spent huge sums to buy or lease this equipment, surely it makes financial sense to maximise the value of your investment by ensuring it works as effectively as possible?
“Hard-water contamination (aka limescale) of wet instruments, which then go on to sterilization, can compromise the proper function of a small steam sterilizer…When potable water is used, a water softener device may be needed” HTM01/05 sec 3.31
The EY810 deionizer cartridge (post RO) helps polish your RO water to ensure it remains at a suitable quality level without the need to keep changing RO cartridges every few months. Providing you correctly specify and maintain all your DUWS, the EY810 will help polish around 15,000 litres of RO water before it needs replacing.
